This is a very common question and one of the most important concerns when choosing a place to live.
We have made some enhancements to the property and work closely with local law enforcement to deter negative activity:
Gated entry, improved exterior lighting, surveillance cameras, live-onsite management, and regular police patrol all help in that effort. In addition, we screen all applicants with criminal and credit background checks.
We cannot guarantee the safety or security of residents or their property as crime can happen anywhere at anytime. However, being aware of your surroundings and making other residents and management aware of suspicious activity will ensure any issues that arise will be addressed promptly to reduce negative any activity on the property.

Home Security and Personal Safety
- Should I get renter's insurance?
It is highly recommended. The Landlord's insurance policy only covers loss of structures, not personal artifacts of the Residents. In the event of a loss, without renters insurance, you would be out of luck.
Contacting your family insurance agent will be a good place to start.
Your parents may be able to add your policy onto their existing homeowner's or renter's insurance policy. Local Augusta insurance agents can set you up with a policy as well. Renter's insurance policies are straight forward and are relatively inexpensive.
Contact your institution's off-campus housing or student life office for guidance or recommendations.
- What should I do to prepare the apartment for long school breaks?
- Notify Campus Side Apartments of the date you plan to leave the apartment for break by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Make sure the temperature is set to at least 55 degrees F in the winter. Failing to keep the apartment at that temperature may cause extensive damage if a pipe freezes and breaks causing flooding for days without notice. Reminders will be sent out. Apartments may be checked by management to ensure the temperature is set at the required minimum setting. Residents shall be held liable for damage due to their negligence and shall pay bills upon receipt. It is much cheaper to pay for the heat bill.
- Contact post office about mail management.
- Leave a light on in the apartment.
- Make sure all the doors and windows are locked and close blinds over windows.
- Make arrangements for a neighbor to keep an eye on the apartment.
- Do not leave valuables in plain sight
Getting connected by local service providers
- How do I set up utilities?
You don't have to!
Electricity is provided by Georgia Power and is included in the rent (with a expense cap per apartment per month). By default, the bills are handled by management.
If you have an overage, management will send you a copy of your bill by email upon request and will maintain a copy in the office. The total bill is reduced by the total allowance per person in a unit and then the overage cost is evenly among the occupants of an apartment. This is done in the last few days of the month and any overages are due with the upcoming rent payment due date. Management will add the overage to the individual ledgers of the residents. Go to your Resident Portal to view the charges in the last few days of each month.
Groups of residents who share an apartment unit may elect to have the electricity put into their names and handle the bills directly. This may help the group save money as they would keep any monthly savings below the electricity cap. Management can help set you up if you choose this option.
- How do I set up cable service?
You don't have to! We provide expanded basic cable already. You can arrange additional services directly with Knology.
Knology is the exclusive provider of Internet and Cable services at the Campus Side Apartments property.Knology Augusta Store

- Mail: Change of Address - How do I establish my address or change my address?
Contact your local post office and give them your school apartment as a forwarding address.
When you arrive at your apartment, label your mailbox with the names of the current residents. This will prevent a lot of mail from previous residents ending up in your box.

- Who is responsible for water/sewage?
The city provides the services. Management pays these bills throughout the year and it is included in the rent. Management may bill the resident a reasonable charge for excessive use if the resident’s willful actions or neglect causes excessive water use. For example, failing to report a running toilet or sink or purposely running water with the intention of creating excessive and unnecessary cost.
Our maintenance staff schedules preventative maintenance to minimize water loss and responds quickly to maintenance requests involving leaks or potential flood hazards.
Security Deposit Questions
- Where does my security deposit go during my lease term?
Security deposits are deposited in an escrow account with a Bank identified on the lease agreement. This money is not considered the landlord's money. The escrow account retains control of the funds until the landlord withdraws the money to reimburse tenant after covering the cost of repairs and cleaning and other expenses explained in the lease agreement.
- What if the cost of damages and cleaning is more than the security deposit?
On the settlement form, the management will note the expenses, and will bill you for the rest of the balance that your security deposit does not cover. If you choose not to pay that balance, or if there are disputes, the issue will go to small claims court if the parties cannot resolve the issue on their own. This is a rare event that would take extreme negligence by the tenant to create enough damage for this to happen.
- Can the security deposit be used to pay the last month's rent?
NO. The purpose of the security deposit is to cover potential damages. If you do not pay the rent on time, late fees will apply.
- Do my rent payments help me build credit?
Rent payment history can be a good way to establish credit history while in school. Your rent payment history can be submitted to the credit bureaus by your landlord.
Evictions and judgments are filed in public record and the credit bureaus look at these to evaluate you as a credit risk. A judgment can hurt your credit score and will stay on your credit report for years until it is paid and settled. This will affect your ability to obtain financing for your future business, car, home, and even affect you when applying for a job.
The affect of defaulting on a lease to an apartment resulting in a judgment against you for damages has the same affect as not paying your credit card bills, car payments, or note and mortgage on your home.
- Are there options for apartments to come furnished?
Residents have the option to rent an apartment furnished or unfurnished.
We offer furnished apartments with a FURNITURE PREMIUM added to the base rent.
There is a $50 monthly premium per person to provide bedroom furniture only.
There is an additional $25 monthly premium, per occupant for living room furniture only.

The living room furniture shall include a sofa and chair for two bedroom apartments and sofa and love seat for four bedroom apartments, a coffee table and end table set.
