General Leasing Questions
How do our rates compare to on-campus housing rates?
When comparing our rates to on-campus rates you must take into consideration many variables, including floor plan layout, square footage, furniture, utilities and community events. Our leasing staff is available to discuss with you how our rates compare to other housing options and validate that our community offers you the best value for your money, as well as a great location and incredible amenities.

Do I have a meal plan?
Meal plans are not offered at Fifteen 51.
Do you allow pets?

How are roommates matched?
Roommates can be matched in a couple different ways -- either you tell us who you want to live with, or if you don't have roommates in mind, we are happy to do the matching for you! We use the information that you and your potential roommates fill out on your roommate matching cards to pair you up. Although we cannot guarantee a perfect match, you can rest assured that we do try to find the best match possible. Roommates are paired on a first come, first serve basis.
