Some questions we hear a lot. So much so that we decided to provide some answers.
What is Redpoint?
Redpoint is a Tallahassee community of apartments and townhomes, designed especially with Florida State students in mind – in a great location and at attractive rates. All in a beautiful neighborhood setting, just minutes from campus.
Is Redpoint part of Florida State University?
Redpoint is a privately owned and professionally managed community. Click here for more information about the management and ownership.
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 home are empty, you only pay the rate for your bedroom.

What is included in the rate?
Each resident at Redpoint pays a flat rate that includes:
Complete set of furniture
Washer and dryer in each home
Water/sewer and trash disposal
Community features – pools, fitness center, etc.
Are the homes furnished?
Yes, all homes include a complete set of custom furniture at no extra charge, including full or queen beds, desks and chairs, leather-style sofa and side chairs, dining set and coffee/side tables. To see a sample of the furniture and other finishes, please visit our model cottage.
When do the contracts start and end?
The standard term is August 14, 2021 to July 25, 2022, with payments made in 12 equal installments. Limited alternate dates may be available; please inquire with our staff. Click here to see a sample Housing 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 three ways: by providing a qualifying guarantor (often a parent); by pre-paying the final 2 installments; 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. 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?
Most of the residents at Redpoint are students at Florida State. 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 cottage-mates, non-students must apply together with enough cottage-mates to fill the desired home.
What kind of safety and security are provided?
Redpoint offers controlled access to each home and bedroom with a secure electronic key system. Management staff are also on-site 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 breed. 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 ample parking for residents. Limited guest parking is also available – please inquire.
What other transportation options will I have?
The shuttle bus stops right near Redpoint every 15 minutes when school is in session, 7:00am to 8:00pm Monday to Friday during fall and spring and 7:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday during the summer semester.
Can I see a model home?
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.
