Your contract is based on a total amount that is divided into 12 equal installments for convenience. Your first installment will be due August 1 and the last on July 1 unless you choose to renew and stay at Whistler for another year. Because of this, August rent is not prorated.

All leases are 12-month installments beginning on August 11 and ending on July 31. If you need to get out of your lease early, you can relet your unit by finding somebody to take over the remainder of your lease. Please contact the Whistler team to discuss in detail.

Learn more about the benefits of signing an individual lease as a student.

A guarantor is a co-signer for your lease agreement. Because students often don’t have an income, having a guarantor allows us to qualify you for a lease based on your guarantor’s income.

You will list the name and email of your guarantor during the application process, and your guarantor will receive an email to fill out their portion of the application. Check out our resources for more information on what a guarantor is and learn more about if you will need one.

We require all residents at Whistler to have a guarantor or to prepay two installments to qualify. Prepaid installments are applied to the last two months of your lease term.

For applicants who do not have a credit history in the US and/or a guarantor, Whistler will accept a prepayment of two installments in lieu of credit/guarantor requirements. Prepaid installments are applied to the last two months of your lease term.

Additionally, applicants who are citizens of another country must provide at least two of the following: 1) a passport; 2) the INS document that entitles the applicant to be in the United States; 3) proof of employment in the United States; 4) an I-20 verifying student status; and/or 5) proof of enrollment.

Check out our resources for more information on what a guarantor is and learn more about if you will need one.

We need your Social Security number in order to run standard credit and criminal background checks.

Whistler is using software from Entrata to keep your personal information secure. All of your data, including your name, email, birth date, and Social Security number, are secured using encryption techniques that banks use to keep your financial information private.
