Terms and Conditions
This complex is for married couples, with or without children, and single students with children. To qualify at least one family member must be a DTS Master's student taking a minimum of twelve credit hours toward a degree per lease term (June – May) or a PhD student making reasonable progress in their studies. No summer classes are required. The lease period is for 12 months and eligible residents may renew annually in May; specific amendments will be available for those graduating in Summer/December. The only pets allowed are birds and fish.
Holding fee: Half of the security deposit is required before apartment will be assigned.
The Placement list becomes long as the year progresses. Therefore newly admitted students should apply as soon as possible but should not depend solely upon occupying a campus apartment during their first year at DTS. New applicants for Swiss Tower should explore off-campus options for back-up living arrangements. Please see Off-Campus Housing for more information.
There are laundry facilities located on each floor in the building.
One parking space is allotted per bedroom (i.e. one-bedroom apartments are allotted one spot, the study does not count as bedroom. Two-bedroom apartments are allotted two spots).
The DTS Campus Police is available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
