Can I live with friends, or can you match me with roommates?

You can select your roommate(s), or you can apply on your own and we can match you with other students. Applicants answer a short list of lifestyle questions to help in the matching process.

What are per-person contracts?

Instead of requiring all roommates to sign a joint lease, each person at Redpoint has their own individual contract, with one person per bedroom. This means you are only responsible for paying for yourself — not your roommates. Even if a roommate moves out or other bedrooms in your apartment are empty, you only pay the rate for your bedroom.

What is included in the rent?

Each resident at Redpoint pays a flat rate that includes:

  • Internet
  • Cable TV
  • Furnishings (if selected)
  • Flat-panel TV in living room
  • In-unit laundry
  • Lawn service
  • Parking
  • Community features – fitness center, pool, etc.

What size are the cottages?

Redpoint offers multiple floorplans in 3-bedroom, 3½-bath and 4-bedroom, 4½-bath layouts, ranging from 1,690 to 1,800 square feet.

Are the cottages furnished?

Redpoint offers an optional furniture package for a small additional charge, which includes a full-size bed, dresser, desk and chair in each bedroom, and a sofa, coffee table and entertainment stand in the living room. To see a sample of the furniture and other finishes, please visit our model residences.

When do the contracts start and end?

The standard term is August 9, 2019 to July 30, 2020, with payments made in 12 equal installments. Other alternate dates may be available; please inquire with our staff.

Can I pay by credit card?

Yes. Residents can pay online 24 hours per day, by credit card or ACH electronic checking. Redpoint also offers automatic payment by either credit card or checking account — just fill out one page, one time and payments will be made automatically. Convenience fees apply for credit card and debit card payments.

Will my financial aid cover charges at Redpoint?

Your living costs at Redpoint can be covered by financial aid, just like on-campus housing. Any available financial aid funds, after university charges are satisfied, are released to the student for non-institutional expenses, such as off-campus housing. These funds can be used to pay charges at Redpoint. Normal payment deadlines will continue to apply.

Is Redpoint open to non-students?

Nearly all the residents at Redpoint are students at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. The per-person contracts are also designed with students in mind. Nonetheless, Redpoint is an Equal Opportunity housing provider and welcomes applications from non-students. Family members are welcome as well, subject to occupancy limits. Because of the need to match student roommates, non-students must apply together with enough roommates to fill the desired residence.

What kind of safety and security are provided?

Redpoint is a gated community, with electronic front door locks and individually locking bedroom doors. Community courtesy patrols are provided at select times. Management staff are also on-site 24×7 and can be reached by a 24-hour phone number.

What are the policies on pets, smoking and guests?

Redpoint is pet-friendly, subject to limits on animals and breeds. The community is smoke-free in all indoor areas. Guests are welcome at all times, subject to the consent of roommates and security considerations. Overnight guests are welcome, with limits on the number of days and guests.

Can I park my vehicle at Redpoint?

Redpoint offers parking on-site for no additional charge.

What other transportation options will I have?

Redpoint is served by multiple UNCW shuttle bus routes, stopping right at the community every three to nine minutes, and continuing to campus in ten minutes’ time, weekdays when school is in session during Fall and Spring semesters. It’s also a short walk or bike ride to UNCW.
