    Yes. There is one on each end of the complex.

    Is there parking close to the buildings?
    Yes, there is a fairly large lot on the Tyus (south) end of the complex and a smaller lot on the Z-6 (north) end. You can also park in Z-6 parking lot designated for West Campus Residents.

    When you state there are "Individual ... (local telephone, cable TV, high speed Ethernet connections)," do you mean that there will be access to Internet, and cable and a telephone line in each room?
    Yes. Each bedroom will have its own telephone line, Ethernet port, and cable hook-up.

    What is it about Arbor View that makes the price so much higher than other halls?
    Actually, if you consider all you are getting for your money, the apartments are a very good deal. Consider a private room in a traditional hall. The current private room rate for one of those is $2,200 ($1650 + $550). That does not include a semi-private bathroom, your own kitchen and living room. A four-bedroom apartment at $2,390 with kitchen, living room and semi-private bath is a very good value.

    Yes, as long as your award is sufficient to cover the entire cost.

    Is there anyway we can sublet the apartment over the summer?
    We will allow your contract to be transferred to another student, but this process must take place through the Residence Life Office. This option is limited by the number of students interested in taking over contracts, so it is NOT guaranteed that everyone wishing to sublet will be able to do so.

    Can I choose my apartment mates?
    Yes. We will make every effort to group individuals according to their request.

    Can I live in the apartments for only one semester?
    No. The contract will be for a full year regardless of your enrollment status.
