KSU Off Campus Housing FAQs

One of the most valuable parts of each student’s college experience is the development of critical life skills. Living off campus in our student apartments promotes independence and responsibility, and challenges students to take ownership of important tasks — from basic skills, such as cleaning and cooking, to more advanced tasks, such as budgeting time and paying bills. SOVA provides top-level KSU off campus housing that helps students transition from living at home or in on campus dorms to leading an independent and well-balanced lifestyle in luxury apartments. A central property location in the heart of Marietta and minutes away from campus make our student housing community ideal for college students.

A number of students already know who they want to live with, while other students are excited to meet a brand new group of friends — others are more interested in living solo. SOVA provides multiple options that accommodate each of these student preferences. If you have roommates in mind, you may start filling out your student housing application. If not, leverage the benefits of our roommate-matching service! Residents seeking roommates must fill out and submit the provided questionnaire, which details information about student living preferences, lifestyle habits, and daily schedules. We pair residents based on the survey results for a mutually-beneficial and enjoyable college living experience for all residents. To find out more about the roommate matching process or to access the questionnaire, contact us today!

Living in an off campus apartment and being responsible for yourself can be empowering. Accepting responsibility for another person or multiple people, however, can result in less-than-desirable outcomes. That’s why SOVA offers individual housing contracts. With individual housing contracts, residents are responsible only for their monthly installment payments on their individual bedrooms — they will not be held liable if a roommate fails to submit monthly payments or moves out of the apartment before their housing contract ends.

SOVA’s housing contracts span approximately 12 months and coincide with the Kennesaw State University academic calendar. For the convenience of our residents, monthly payments are divided into 12 equal installments, each of which is due on the first (1st) day for each month. These installments do not represent a monthly payment amount and are not prorated.

All of our residents must have guarantors for their housing contracts in order to financially guarantee the obligations of the contracts. Guarantors must meet minimum credit and income requirements and sign the guarantor addendum to each housing contract. In the event an applicant is unable to provide a qualified guarantor, we require that applicants submit deferred rent (last two months rent up front) in order to secure their spot in our student housing community. Contact us to learn more about guarantor requirements at SOVA.

SOVA requires that each resident has a renter’s insurance policy with $100,000 in liability insurance coverage. While residents are free to select any insurance vendor of their choosing, we work with Multifamily Insurance Partners (MFIP) to offer the required liability insurance coverage to our residents at a highly competitive rate. MFIP also offers optional renters insurance to cover residents’ personal possessions. For more information on the coverage available or our renter’s insurance requirements, contact us today.

Move-in day at SOVA is always exciting! We work hard to take as much of the stress and hassle out of the process as possible for our residents. The move-in process starts with moving into one of our furnished apartments, each of which is well-appointed for a luxuriously comfortable student living experience. Incoming students will have an allotted time to visit the leasing office where residents will receive keys to their apartment entryway and their individual bedroom. After registering your Simple Bills account, picking up keys, and unpacking your personal items, you’re ready to roll. Welcome home to SOVA!
