We invite you, as a parent, to tour our community and learn exactly why Sterling Burbank can provide your student with the best home away from home!

Who is the management/owner of the community and their history? +

At our Baton Rouge apartments for rent near campus, our students are everything. In fact, our residents are the cornerstone of The Dinerstein Companies and have faithfully guided our business since its founding in 1955. In 1997, we recognized the need for high-quality student housing. The Dinerstein Companies responded by forming Sterling Housing. Today, Sterling Housing is the largest off-campus student housing developer in the country. Our eco-friendly student properties are catered specifically to the college experience so students can have the perfect home away from home.

What lease terms are offered at Sterling Burbank? +

Preleasing is already underway for 2017! 

Also, unlike the dorms, we do not require residents to vacate their apartments during school breaks.  Prior to your lease expiration, you will be given the option to renew another year. Should you choose to renew, you will not have to vacate on July 31st 2017.  By signing a renewal lease and extending your stay, you get to focus on what matters the most and not disrupt your studies or life.

What is an individual lease agreement? +

Each bed space in each apartment is its own lease agreement. Each lease signer and guarantor is only responsible for their own lease and bed space. If a roommate is delinquent, or causes damage to their individual bedroom, you are not affected.

If there is damage in the common area such as the living room or kitchen, everyone in the apartment will be equally responsible for the cost.

What if students don’t get along with their roommates? +

We ask students to first communicate directly with one another to work towards a solution that is amenable for all residents of the room. If this strategy does not work, or a roommate is unwilling to compromise, then students are asked to seek out the counsel and assistance of our office staff. The intervention from our management can range from a conversation with the concerned student, to a mediated discussion with the roommates involved. If one feels compelled to vacate, that student reassign their lease for the remainder of the term, or if possible, we can transfer the student to another apartment based on availability.

Can I break my lease once I have signed it? +

Once a lease is signed, the lease signer is financially responsible for the lease in its entirety. Our lease does not offer an early termination charge or the option to sublease. However, lease holders have the option to reassign their lease with written approval from management. The lease holder is responsible for finding someone to take over their lease agreement and pay a non-refundable fee of $350. Once found, the potential lease take over must complete the same background process, sign their own lease, and qualify financially either on their own with a qualified guarantor. All financial and lease obligations will then be the responsibility of the reassignment. The original lease holder and their guarantor will no longer be responsible for the lease agreement.

What are installments? +

All of our leases are divided into 12 equal installments which are always due on the first of every month. One of the portions, usually equal, into which a debt is divided for payment at specified intervals over a fixed period. Rental payments are accepted in installment payments specific to the chosen bed space and executed lease contract.

How do I sign a lease and reserve my spot at Sterling Burbank? +

All applications and lease documents can be found on our website when you click the “Apply Now” icon. Once you complete the application portion and are approved, it will lead you to the leasing documents. Please take the time to review the lease document as this is a legally binding contract. 

There is no application fee, administrative fee, or security deposit due at application time. It is $0 down to apply with Sterling Burbank. The only additional fee that will be due on or before your move in date is a one-time nonrefundable $100 green fee per lease term.

How do I qualify? +

Each applicant will be screened for criminal history. If an applicant’s results show any felony convictions, the application will result in an automatic denial.

  • If an applicant wishes to qualify on their own without a guarantor, you must make 3 times the monthly rent, have a sum no less than 12 month’s rent in accessible bank account, and be able to provide proof of income. In addition to criminal history screening, you will also go through a credit check. Please see our full Rental Application Criteria for further details.
  • Applicants may also choose to have a Guarantor. In this case, guarantor means the person that will sign the Guaranty of Resident obligations. Guarantors will not be screened for criminal background as they do not have sufficient rights to occupy or enter the apartment.
    • The Guarantor must make 4 times the monthly rent, have a sum no less than 12 month’s rent in accessible bank account, and be able to provide proof of income. Guarantors will also be screened using a third-party screening company to evaluate Guarantor’s credit, check-writing history, and rental history. Please see our full Rental Application Criteria for further details.

What is your Pet Policy? +

Sterling Burbank is a Pet Friendly Community. With written approval from the management team and a signed Pet Addendum by the residents and roommates, we welcome pets at least 1 year of age and 30lbs or less. Regardless of weight, the following breeds or hybrids of dogs are not permitted: Akita, Doberman Pincher, Rottweiler, Dalmatian, Pit Bull (e.g. Pitt Terrier, Staffordshire terrier, APBT, or any other dog that has the substantial physical characteristics and appearance of those breeds), Chow, Wolf Hybrid and Bull Mastiff. This restricted breed list is subject to change without notice.

The following animals are not allowed: birds, rodents of any kind, snakes, frogs, spiders, ferrets, or other exotic animals.

We allow one pet per resident and a maximum of 1 animals per apartment.

A one-time non-refundable pet fee of $300 will be due. Pet rent of $10 will also be charged monthly.

These are the basic guidelines that will help residents determine if their pet is approved and help in determining if this is an option. An animal addendum stating rules beyond the basic guidelines above will fully govern the pet policy.

Is there on-site management and maintenance? +
