Frequently Asked Questions: The Langston Apartments
Q. What lease terms do you offer?
A. At The Langston in Cleveland, Ohio, residents' leases run concurrent with the academic calendar. Therefore, based on availability, most leases begin mid-August before school starts. Regardless of the date that the lease begins, all leases expire on July 31. The typical lease term is approximately 11.5 months of occupancy, and the lease agreement reflects a total rent amount that's divided into 12 equal installments that are due at the beginning of each month, including August. These installments don't represent a monthly rent amount and are not prorated.
Q. Why are prices displayed per bedroom?
A. When considering a 2, 3, or 4 bedroom apartment at The Langston, apartment home rates and square footages are quoted for individual leases per bedroom. When an individual signs the lease, that person is only responsible for their own payment. There is no joint liability for a roommate.
Q. Do I have to be a student to live at The Langston in Downtown Cleveland?
A. No. The Langston is a perfect location for anyone who wants to enjoy all that Downtown Cleveland has to offer. With close proximity to Cleveland State Univerisity and a location right along the RTA Healthline, living at The Langston is convenient for all.
