  • The apartment will have an inventory sheet completed for you to read and confirm.
  • The manager will have you sign the rental contract and give you keys.

Rent Payment

Your rent for the whole semester is charged to your student account at the start of each semester.

You may pay your rent in full or by making monthly payments. Payments are due between the first and tenth of each month with a credit card, check, cash or money order at the Cashier Window in the Administration Building or with cash, check or money order at the Office of Housing and Residence Life.

Be sure to check the date and rental charge on the lease when you check in.

Please note: Rent payments are separate from any payment arrangement you may have with ENMU for tuition or other University charges.

Failure to pay rent constitutes a breach of the rental contract, and you will be subject to eviction.
