Frequently Asked Questions
Use the "Book Your Tour" link at the top of our website, or under an individual listing by clicking the “Schedule Tour” button. Our tours are scheduled in half-hour increments, and we can take you to up to 2 locations during this 30 minute period. We now offer several ways to tour a property, as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. View our Lounge Leasing page to see how you can schedule a tour via Zoom Live Video
We understand that pets are family, too! We do allow pets at select locations, which you can find designated with a paw print on our website. With these units, there is a non-refundable pet fee of $350 specified in the lease. We only allow cats and dogs up to 50lbs.
*You will be responsible for the clean up of the grounds after your pet, or you will incur a fee. Any damages to the apartment as a result of your pet will be charged to you.
We will work with you in the case of an ESA, as long as you provide the proper legal/medical documentation.
We’re excited to have you join the SAMI family! To sign a lease, please be prepared to provide the following:

1BR: $300 total

3BR: $300 total, or $100/person
4BR: $300 total, or $100/person, whichever is more
After many requests from tenants and a desire to offer even more transparency, SAMI is moving to Simple Bills for handling of all utilities!
With Simple Bills, you are only responsible for your portion of the bill, and will have better control over your usage and what you pay! More information can be found here.
While not required, we do highly recommend that each tenant have renters’ insurance to cover for damage to the property caused by the renter, and for loss of renter’s property in the case of theft, etc. You may want to discuss this with your parents/guardians to see if you can get a rider on their policy to cover your belongings while in your apartment.
Some of our apartments offer in-unit washers and dryers, while others have shared laundry in the building. This will be defined on the listing or during your tour!
You can come in with your planned roommates if you have them, or we can set you up with roommate matching! Our staff will pair you with other individuals in the instance that you don’t have enough roommates.
We offer both Individual and Joint leases. Your agent will take the time to discuss your needs with you to find the best fit!
We can offer two semester leases, but there is typically a small premium associate with any lease that is less than the full 3 semester period. There may be times when that policy won't apply -- your leasing agent will be able to assist you with this!
