Pricing & Packages

Special Pricing Consideration for 2020-2021

The Cadence offers individual leases at a flat rate depending on length of lease & room occupancy. Leases are packaged per student, therefore the cost of rent is never affected by another student’s resident status. Rent/installments do not represent a monthly rental amount (and are not prorated), but rather the total base rent due for the lease term divided by the number of installments. See the Cadence website for more info:
