Frequently Asked Questions

When is my next Vision 16 house payment due?

Please see Payment Outline and read the 2015-16 rental contract to familiarize yourself with the payment process.

 

What does Vision 16 provide in terms of room furnishings, laundry, bike storage, and parking?

Rooms are furnished with regular size twin bunk beds and desks. There is closet space in each room. We do not advise you to bring every personal item you own. We do suggest you bring a desk lamp, desk chair and something for storing pencils and other desk-related items as our tables do not have desk drawers. Please contact your roommate(s) before bringing any major electronic devices, as there is limited storage space at the house.

Coin-operated washers and dryers are provided for your use. The combined price to wash and dry is $1.75.

There is limited bicycle storage. Please also bring a bike lock to secure your bike. Please do not bring a bike if you do not plan to use it.

There is Zone 6 parking available at the 17th ave house and each women’s house has a few parking spots that are available for rent ($175/quarter). The spots are decided each quarter by a drawing. We recommend you not bring a car unless it is necessary.

 

What about house, room and roommate choice?

For Fall Quarter the House Presidents will assign houses and rooms. There will be 2-5 people in each room.

For women there will be a room change mid-year. With this room assignment you will have the opportunity to give suggestions for your roommate and room. We cannot guarantee you will be given your first choice.

 

How does the food work?

Women: Each month money that will come out of your rent will be used to purchase food at Costco and Amazon Fesh. This will allow the house to purchase community food (supplies for breakfast and lunch) and food for planned house dinners Monday through Thursday. We do not expect that all of your individual food needs will be met. You may have to purchase special personal items. You’ll see how this works when you move in! If you have any questions, please e-mail Mike Hartanov at 17thave@gmail.com

Men:  Vision 16 will provide a “standard meal plan” to all Residents of the 17th Ave House.  The standard meal plan provides resident with breakfast, lunch, and dinner Monday – Friday.  Food for Saturday and Sunday meals will be provided, however preparation will be on your own.
