Washington Hall Move-In Procedures
Move-in Scheduling Contact:
1107 St. Joseph Street, Apt ###, Dallas, TX 75204
The post office recommends turning in your change of address form within 10 business days of your move-in date. You can either fill out a form or go to https://moversguide.usps.com to change your address online (quicker and less chance of error but there is a small fee)
Each tenant must schedule his or her arrival date and time in advance with the Housing and Relocation Office (Housing). Housing requires at least a two-week notice of arrival, but tenants are encouraged to schedule his or her move in date immediately after accepting the apartment offer. Doing so will improve the likelihood of the new tenant getting the move in date that he or she prefers. Six tenant moves can be accommodated per day during the allotted time slots. Arrival and time slots are scheduled through the Relocation Coordinator in the Housing Office.

Thirty minutes prior to your arrival, please contact the Apartment Manager in Washington Hall at 214-887-5212. Upon arrival, the Apartment Manager or an Assistant Manager will provide you with keys, moving equipment, and check you into your new apartment.
Lease Review Meeting
Tenants must attend a Lease Review Meeting, which is held in the Housing Office. The Housing Office holds one lease review meeting on Tuesdays & Fridays; starting promptly at 2:00 pm. Meetings are typically scheduled for the first Lease Meeting time following your move-in.
Prorated rent for the month you move in and the security deposit (less holding fee paid per request of initial apartment offer) will be collected at this meeting; kindly come prepared to pay. Cash, checks, cashier’s checks, and money orders will be accepted during the lease meeting. If you wish to pay with a credit card, or E-Check, you may do so in advance of the lease meeting on your Appfolio portal. We are sorry, but no credit cards can be accepted in the Housing Office.
The Seminary resells electricity to tenants, which will provide the lowest residential rate available. The Housing Office will bill each tenant monthly for this utility through their portal. There will be a $25 late fee charge for payments received after the due date given.
Television & Phone Service
In Washington Hall telephone, Hi-Speed Internet & Digital TV service is only available through AT&T U-Verse. To have U-Verse installed, you must simply call AT&T for the services wanted and contact the Apartment Manager 24 hours before your scheduled installation. The Apartment Manager will give you a key for the communications room so that you may meet the installer and provide access to the appropriate communications room. It is necessary that the tenant be present for the installation. The Housing staff may not handle this for the residents.
AT&T U-Verse Contact Number: 866.269.3259/ www.att.com
If you wish to have Digital TV installed, AT&T U-Verse may deny it exists in the building at first. Please give them your apartment number and ask them to check available services. They will then discover that you are, in fact, able to receive Digital TV for this location.
All apartments are unfurnished except for major kitchen appliances (microwaves are not included) so tenants should plan for this need.
