Frequent Questions

Are there any deals or special offers at Gateway?

We do offer specials from time to time. Check out our special offers page here.

What does it mean to have an individual lease?

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.

What is a roommate matching system?

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.

What happens if I have roommate issues?

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.

How are the utilities paid?

Residents pay for electric, water, trash, and sewer. 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.

Is furniture included?

Gateway at Denton apartments are fully furnished with a full-sized bed, chest of drawers, a large desk and desk chair, and a ceiling fan for each resident in their bedroom. In the living room area, there is a sofa, an oversized chair, coffee table, end table, entertainment center and bar stools or a kitchen table, depending on your floor plan. 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.

How close to campus are you?

Gateway at Denton is less than one mile from the University of North Texas campus and approximately two miles from Texas Women’s University. Gateway at Denton is also conveniently on the UNT bus route!

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.

Is Gateway at Denton pet friendly?
