Move in Information
Our standard move in date is August 31st from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Earlier move in dates are available for student's with earlier class start dates. We hope your move-in experience will be a positive one. In order to help you with your move-in arrangements, we encourage you to use this checklist.
Before the Move
» Enroll in a Renter's Insurance Policy. The Insurance certificate must be presented to your Resident Relations Coordinator prior to move-in.
» Be sure the total of earnest money and security deposit due for your apartment is paid on or before you arrive. Keys will not be issued unless the security deposit and first month's rent for the entire apartment are paid in full.
» Don't forget to sign up for parking, DirecTV, Internet, and more before you move in. Click here for our Add-On Features Order Form.
» If you're moving in during late-August you do not need to make a move-in appointment if you are arriving during normal office hours. If you are moving in during a different month, or are arriving after hours, please ensure that you have scheduled a time for your lease signing and your move in day with your Resident Relations Coordinator.
» We can accept packages that are shipped to your new address beginning August 20th. We cannot allow you access to your room to leave boxes prior to move-in day, nor can we accept packages that arrive prior to the 20th, or that do not have your name and apartment number on them. Any packages you are planning to have shipped should use this address format: your name, 121 W. Gilman St., your apartment number, Madison, WI 53703.
» Time permitting, we will place packages in your unit. If you do not want us to place your packages in your unit please email us. Please note that the Company will not be responsible for any packages that are damaged or lost. If you are shipping valuable items, please arrange to have them arrive when you will be here to sign for them.
» If you are still in need of parking, there is a good chance we still have parking available. Call our offices today to secure a spot.
» Roommate assignments will be mailed to you about four weeks prior to your move in day. We encourage you to contact your roommates in advance of your arrival to decide who will bring which items.
Day of the Move
» Upon arrival, you'll check in on the main floor of Highlander which is located at 121 W. Gilman Street. Our main entrance is on the backside of the building, off the parking lot.
» Your move in orientation will generally take less than half an hour. We'll make sure all balances are paid and provide you with your new keys and all of the other necessities you'll need.
» Please fill out and return your move-in inspection sheet. This form is to protect your security deposit - write down any problems at the beginning to help avoid charges at the end of your lease!
» Please make sure all of your keys work and your doors have working locks.
