Individual leasing means that each person is only responsible for their portion of the unit lease or bed space. If your roommate ends up not coming back for the spring semester, you are not responsible for their payment.
If you don’t have anybody in mind that you would want to live with let us match you up with somebody! There is a Roommate Matching Profile Sheet that you can fill out to let us know more about what you’re looking for in a roommate. Then, we will spend weeks in the summer figuring out the best match for you based on that information.
Although Gateway at Denton’s roommate matching system is extremely thorough, roommate issues are inevitable and Gateway’s staff is trained in handling these type of problems. The majority of roommate issues are worked out through a meeting with at least one Gateway manager and all roommates involved. Actions following the meeting will depend on the severity of the issue.
The Gateway at Denton lease is binding and cannot be broken. If you cannot live at Gateway after signing your lease, you are still responsible for covering your costs. We are willing to work with you in order to relet your space. Please call the leasing office for information on releting.
There are several ways that you can pay your rent. You can:
- Pay with a personal check, money order, or cashier’s check.
- Pay with a check online through Gateway’s Resident Portal. This option will automatically draft from a checking account.
At Gateway, your rent includes expanded cable, blazing fast gig speed internet access throughout the property, water, trash, a designer furniture package, access to all of our amenities and a wonderful staff that is there to help you anytime you need them.
The only utility the resident has to pay is electric. The electric account is set up in Gateway’s name and each month the management staff divides the bill amongst the residents occupying the unit. Each resident is on an individual lease, meaning that if their roommate does not pay their portion it does not affect anyone else in the unit. Electric can be paid on the same check as rent.

The kitchen area has all designer black-on-black appliances, including frost-free refrigerators with ice makers, electric ranges, built-in microwave ovens, multi-cycle dishwashers, double stainless steel sinks with disposals, spacious pantries, and full-size washers and dryers.

What is the difference in a co-signer and a guarantor ? What is the guarantor agreeing to? Does it affect my credit ?
Gateway at Denton requires a guarantor with each lease signed. Sometimes a resident can be his/her own guarantor by fulfilling a few requirements. If the resident cannot fulfill the requirements, then a guarantor is necessary. A guarantor is unconditionally guaranteeing the full and timely performance of all the resident’s agreements in the lease, including rent payments, late fees, property damage, etc. A guarantor guarantees payment but does not have access or rights to the unit.
