Moving In - University Housing
Finalizing and Executing the Lease
Residents must submit a security deposit and their first month’s rent to the Faculty Housing Manager. Residents will be provided with their rental unit keys on their scheduled move-in date. Residents will not be able to move in before the start date on the lease agreement. Residents will arrange for the move at their own expense and risk.
Security Deposit and First Month’s Rent
Before moving into their rental units, residents must submit a security deposit equal to one month’s rent, along with the payment for the first month’s rent through Kean University's online payment portal. Proof of payment must be submitted to the Faculty Housing Manager. Please click the following link in order to make the payments:
The rent for the remaining months of the resident’s lease agreement shall be deducted from resident’s salaries on a twice monthly basis. Residents shall be required to sign an Authorization for Automatic Payroll Deduction of Rent form. Residents are responsible for checking their paystubs to ensure the payments are being deducted from their salary. Any discrepancies must be reported to the Faculty Housing Manager immediately.
The security deposit will be deposited in an interest-bearing account. Federal regulations governing such accounts require residents to submit to a Form W-9 (U.S. residents and non-residents with a social security number) or a Form W-8 (non-residents of the U.S without a social security number) to Kean University.
All Kean University Faculty Housing residents are required to carry renter’s insurance. The minimum acceptable level of coverage is $25,000.00. Kean University does not require the residents to buy coverage from any specific vendor. Proof of such insurance must be provided to the Faculty Housing Manager prior to moving into a rental unit.
Parking and Registering Residents Vehicles
All University Housing residents require parking permits for their vehicles. Residents will be provided up to two (2) permits. Please visit our website at https://www.kean.edu/parking to obtain parking permits along with other services such as registration of vehicles, regulations, enforcement policies, and fees, fines and appeals.
