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 Aero 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 rate?

Each resident at Aero pays a flat rate that includes:

  • Furnishings
  • High-speed Internet
  • Water/sewer
  • In-unit laundry
  • Community features – pool, fitness center, etc.

What size are the homes?

The spacious accommodations at Aero range from 1, 2 and 4 bedroom apartments as well as two-story 2-bedroom townhomes, with a private bathroom for each bedroom.

Are the homes furnished?

Yes, all apartments at Aero have a furniture package that includes a full-size bed, desk and chair and under-bed dresser drawers. The living room comes with a sofa, chair, coffee table and entertainment stand. The kitchen comes equipped with bar stools, too. To see a sample of the furniture and other finishes, please visit our model apartment.

When do the contracts start and end?

The standard term is August 18, 2022 to July 30, 2023, with payments made in 12 equal installments. Limited alternate dates are available; please inquire with our staff. Click here for a sample agreement.

Is a co-signer or financial guaranty required?

After a Housing Agreement is signed, each resident is required to secure their financial obligation in one of two ways: by providing a qualifying guarantor (often a parent), or by purchasing a third-party guaranty from our partner, Leap. In limited cases, we may also waive the requirement for a financial guaranty if a resident has sufficient income of their own.

Can I pay by credit card?

Yes. Residents can pay online 24 hours per day, by credit card or ACH electronic checking. Aero 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 Aero on 24th?

Your living costs at Aero 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 Aero. Normal payment deadlines will continue to apply.

Is Aero on 24th open to non-students?

Nearly all the residents at Aero are students at the University of Florida. The per-person contracts are also designed with students in mind. Nonetheless, Aero 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?

Aero has a monitored fire-sprinkler system, along with electronic locks plus 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?

Aero is a pet-friendly community, subject to limits on animals and breed. The community is smoke-free in all indoor and adjacent spaces. 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 Aero?

Aero offers on-site vehicle, scooter and bike parking options. Parking is free and on a first-come, first-park basis. Reserved parking is also available for an additional cost.

What other transportation options will I have?

Aero is just blocks from the southwest corner of the UF campus. Five bus lines from Gainesville RTS stop within as little as a quarter-mile from Aero on 24th, and run to the center of the UF campus as often as every 10 minutes.

Can I see a model apartment?

Yes. Please request an appointment for a personal tour, or just stop by to see us and we’ll be happy to show you the community.
