Frequently Asked Questions

What’s included in the rent?

The rent includes internet, cable and trash. We also provide electricity, water, sewer and gas, which is billed back to each resident so you can avoid the hassle of setting up an account and the headache of gathering money from your roommates!

Will my apartment come furnished?

Yes! And it’s not your typical dorm furniture. Your apartment will come sleekly styled with furnishings that are modern yet functional, and elegant with an industrial twist.

What’s an individual lease?

An Individual leases means you are only responsible for your portion of rent. Although you may have roommates that share the common areas of your apartment, you are not financially responsible for them and their names are not on your lease.

Do I need someone to co-sign my lease?

Only the person living in the unit needs to sign the lease; however, if you do not qualify for the credit portion of the application, you will need a guarantor to sign a Guaranty Form.

What’s a guarantor?

A guarantor is someone who guarantees timely payment on the lease. In the case of student living, a guarantor is usually a parent, guardian, or someone else who is financially stable. We require a guarantor only when the person living in the unit is unable to meet application’s credit qualifications.

Is there an application fee and/or security deposit?

There is a $35 application fee which covers a background check on the resident and credit check on the guarantor. We also require a security deposit. Contact our leasing office to learn more about pricing and deposits.

Do you allow pets?

Sorry, but we don’t allow pets at this time.

Do you offer roommate matching?

Yes! If you don’t have roommates in mind (or enough to fill the units in the apartment of your choice) but want to reserve your spot to live at Identity before it’s too late, we’ve got you covered. We offer a roommate matching program that gives you the freedom and control to determine who you’ll live with.

What kind of security is at Identity?

Safety at Identity is our utmost concern, and we provide more security features than you may find anywhere else. Security features include 24 hour on-call staff and emergency maintenance, surveillance cameras in all public access areas, and controlled community, building, and apartment electronic key access only.

But, I can have guests right?

Of course! Just keep your roommates and neighbors in mind when bringing over guests.

Is there parking?

Unfortunately, Identity does not provide parking. The good news is, you don’t need a car in Seattle’s U District! And even better, Identity has a great bike storage room to securely store you bike.

Can anyone access the amenities?

No. We ensure only you and your guests are frequenting the amazing amenities we have to offer at Identity.

What if I have a maintenance request?

Our on-site maintenance team is dedicated to resolving any maintenance issues quickly and conveniently. We make it super easy to request maintenance with our online Resident Portal.
