Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find frequently asked questions about Identity Boise apartments. If you have a question that hasn’t been answered on this page, feel free to contact our leasing office.

What is included in in my rent?

At Identity, your rent not only gives you a luxurious, modern off-campus apartment, it also covers internet and cable as well as water and trash removal. Electricity is billed separately to each unit.

Are the apartments at Identity Boise furnished?

All of our student apartments come with outstanding furnishings to provide a relaxing, harmonious living space. The luxury units are fully-furnished with elegant couches, stylish tables, island seating, and bedroom furnishings.

What’s an "individual lease"?

In most conventional apartment communities, roommates are responsible for providing a single payment to the landlord as part of a joint lease agreement. This requires roommates to collect money from each other, and if one roommate neglects to pay, the entire group will be responsible.

Identity has a better way. By providing each resident with an individual lease, everyone is responsible for their own payment and monthly rent - meaning roommates won’t have to collect from each other and won’t be held responsible if one renter fails to pay.

Do BSU students need a cosigner in order to rent at Identity?

Only the residents of Identity Boise will have to sign the lease agreement. However, if residents do not meet certain requirements for the background screening, income requirement, or credit check, a guarantor may be needed to sign a Guaranty Form to supplement the lease agreement.

What is a "guarantor"?

A guarantor is someone who signs the Guaranty Form, which holds them financially responsible if the resident fails to make lease payments. For the vast majority of students at Boise State University, the guarantor will be a parent or legal guardian. Identity Boise only requests a guarantor when certain requirements from the income requirement or credit check are not met.

What is the cost of application fees and security deposits?

There is a $40 application fee at the beginning of the process. This cost covers a background check and credit check completed on all residents of the building. We also charge a one-time $150 redecoration fee for all incoming residents, which covers the cost of addressing normal wear and tear during move-out. Thie fee is charged up front to simplify the move-out process.

Can my pet join me at Identity?

Yes! We love pets and know that our residents do too. There is a one-time $350 fee to register your pet at Identity Boise and an additional $25/month pet rent. These fees cover the cost of maintenance and upkeep of the hallways and communal areas where pets are present.
