Your application has been approved and now you want to sign a lease to live in North Village Condos. To assure housing please follow the steps detailed below!

Utility Costs

URI leased the complex from us from 1999 – June 2008. During that time URI required the tenants to be responsible for paying their own utilities for the condo they were living in. Over that 10 year period multiple analyses were performed by the housing office to assure the tenants were getting a good value. The conclusion, as reported to us by the Director of Housing and Residential Life, was, “Over the last 10 year period living in North Village Condos has been less expensive than living in any of the dorms on campus. This is based on analysis we have performed that takes into consideration the following items: housing costs, utility costs, dining plans, and communication fees.”

Utilities are not included in the base rent of North Village Condominiums. It is the responsibility of the tenants to procure and pay for utilities. The information below is a listing of average costs for utilities at 58 Fortin Road, Kingston, RI 02881:

What our Tenants Say…

Hello Zach, From very grateful hearts…Thanks for giving all four of us a great year! Hope to see you around next semester, and have a great summer!

Hello Zach, Here’s just a little card to show you how appreciative I am. I am very thankful you have been working with me and continue to do so. All the hard work you have put into the house looks great and really shows! I hope all is going well and will see you soon! Thank you for everything! All the best!

Hi Zach, I loved living in the townhouses! It was the perfect transition between a dorm and moving off campus, because you got to live on your own but did not have to commute. You get all of the independence that comes along with not living on campus, but all of the convenience of being able to walk to class.

Hi Zach, here is something for your website! Being a sophomore I of course did not want to live in the dorms again but my parents were hesitant about me moving off campus. Finding the condos was a great medium. I had all the luxury of living off campus, my car, my own room, living with friends, and the best, no RA, AND I was still with-in walking distance to all my classes. Also, my roommates and I made great friends with our condo neighbors and we had a great time hanging in our condo community. Living in the condos was an amazing experience!

Zach, I would be more than happy to write a testimonial. Living at the condos over the summer I had a better experience with Zach as my landlord than with any other landlord I’ve had in the past. The condos were clean and well maintained…All around good living experience.

Hello Zach, My experience living in the condos, this summer was unlike anything I had ever experienced. It had an amazing location, with laundry services right outside the door and plenty of dining options. Paying rent was also easy and hassle free which was great because it was my first time living on my own. And the condition of the furniture and house were all great. Once again thank you for the great summer.

Zach, Living in the condos on the top of campus sophomore year was such a great experience. The condos are well taken care of and a perfect area to live for college students. It is also a prime location because you are no longer in dorms but are close enough to still walk to campus and save money on gas. A reserved parking spot in front of your condo was also a great plus so you do not have to pay for URI parking, and always walk across campus to your car!

Hey Zach! Thanks once again, your services for housing and parking are easily the best on campus. See you in the fall!
