How far away is Victory at Castle Court from Syracuse University?
Victory at Castle Court is located off Harrison St directly across from Walnut Park. We also have buildings on University Ave and Walnut Ave. All locations are about 0.3 miles from campus.
My roommates and I all signed the same lease agreement, how is the monthly rent going to be split between us?
Victory offers joint and several leases. What this means is you and your roommates secure a full apartment and are equally responsible for the entire unit. Each roommate is responsible for securing their own guarantor and/or security deposit for their portion of the rent. Each roommate is also provided their own resident portal to pay their portion of the rent. The rent each person is responsible for is determined by how many leaseholders sign onto the lease. For example: If you rent a 3 bedroom unit that costs $3,000 a month. If 3 people signed onto the lease each roommate would be responsible for $1,000 a month in rent. If only 2 people signed onto to lease each roommate would be responsible for $1,500 a month in rent.
What does rent by bed mean and can I have my own bedroom?
Victory also rents by bed space. You may rent a private bedroom (shared kitchen, bathroom, & living space) or you may rent a full unit at the rental cost of all bedrooms combined.
What size are the beds?
Do you find the roommates for me?
We can assist in finding roommates and suitemates for you. We will do our best to find a good match and will coordinate communication between all parties.
My friend and I want to room together. Is that ok?
Of course! Each resident will have their own lease with a letter attached to the bedspace. Additionally, if you have all your roommates already, you can rent out the full unit by signing a joint and several lease agreement.
What if my roommate and I don’t get along?
We expect to be 100% occupied each year; thus, leaving little room for transferring units. We try our best to match roommates and most times it works, but there will be some that doesn’t. We encourage all to communicate, be respectful and work towards a common ground. There will not be much room for moving roommates around. In very rare circumstances there may be an opportunity of moving units and that will be determined dependent on availability.
What is the Utility Fee?
To assist with a smooth living experience we have established a fee to cover all of your utility costs. This includes Cable, WiFi, electric, heat, trash, water and all other utilities to be charged to the landlord releasing residents from the hassle and responsibility. This fee is a flat $60.00 per resident.
How do I set up Internet and Cable?
We use Spectrum Cable as our internet & cable provider in all our apartments. One leaseholder in the unit will need to contract Spectrum Cable to set up their new service. When you provide your new address, spectrum will automatically know internet and spectrum cable application is included in the service. If you would like any additional services, these can be added when you order your modem/router.
Can I get my own Renter’s Insurance with Liability? If so, what do I need to do?
Each resident must have Renter’s Insurance with Liability. Renter’s insurance is available through your Victory resident account, for a small monthly fee. This does NOT include personal property and we encourage you to obtain that on your own. If you choose to get your own Renter’s Insurance with Liability, it must have $100,000 liability with the building property listed Victory at Syracuse and the management company Asset Living listed as a third party. Proof of renter’s insurance must be emailed to Property Manager to remove the provided Renter’s Insurance.

Will I get the exact unit I see on my visit?
Because we are at 100% occupancy, we will be able to show you a couple different units during your visit, but it may not specifically be the unit you’ll be living in during the year. We can send you a listing of floor plans; however, due to the nature of renting by bed space and dependent on rates of specific units and matching roommates et al, we may not be able to show you the exact unit in which you’ll be assigned. However you may absolutely request a specific unit and if we can accommodate, we will.

Are leases for families with children available?
Yes. The property’s policy is included here for family occupants with a child(ren) under the age of eighteen (18) who is domiciled with (i) at least one parent, legal guardian, or another person having legal custody of the child under the age of eighteen, or (ii) the designee of such parent or other person having such custody, with written permission of such parent or other person. For family households with children, all household members age eighteen (18) or older must: (A) complete an application, and (B) sign the lease as a Resident. For family households with children under the age of eighteen (18), at least two (2) people will be permitted to occupy a single bedroom. If a family household with children under the age of eighteen (18) requires additional occupancy per bedroom, additional occupants may be allowed on a case-by-case basis based on factors including, but not limited to, the size of the bedroom(s) and unit, age of the children, configuration of the unit, any physical limitations of the property, and local occupancy codes. If the child occupant reaches eighteen (18) years of age during the term of the lease, the lease will be allowed to complete its term, but renewal will only be offered in compliance with the occupancy policy as stated. Child occupants who are under twenty-four (24) months at the time the lease is signed will not be counted under the occupancy policy for purposes of maximum occupancy but will be counted for subsequent leases if they reach the age of twenty-four (24) months during the term of the lease. The Landlord has the right to lease any empty bedroom(s). Families should contact the office directly regarding the application for family households, as this process varies from individual leasing and the required forms are not all available electronically.
