We've Got Answers.
Some questions we hear a lot. So much so that we decided to provide some answers.
What is Redpoint?
Is Redpoint part of LSU?
Redpoint is a privately owned and professionally managed community. Click here for more information about the management and ownership.
Can I live with friends, or can you match me with roommates?
You can select your roommate(s), or you can apply on your own and we can match you with other students. Applicants answer a short list of lifestyle questions to help in the matching process.
What are per-person contracts?
Instead of requiring all roommates to sign a joint lease, each person at Redpoint has their own individual contract, with one person per bedroom. This means you are only responsible for paying for yourself — not your roommates. Even if a roommate moves out or other bedrooms in your apartment are empty, you only pay the rate for your bedroom.

Is a co-signer or financial guaranty required?
Each resident must pay an administrative fee within 7 days after signing the Housing Agreement. This fee is reduced significantly if the resident provides a qualifying guarantor (often a parent) for their financial obligations under Housing Agreement.
Can I pay by credit card?
Yes. Residents can pay online 24 hours per day, by credit card or ACH electronic checking. Redpoint also offers automatic payment by either credit card or checking account — just fill out one page, one time and payments will be made automatically. Convenience fees apply for credit card and debit card payments.
Will my financial aid cover charges at Redpoint?
Your living costs at Redpoint can be covered by financial aid, just like on-campus housing. Any available financial aid funds, after university charges are satisfied, are released to the student for non-institutional expenses, such as off-campus housing. These funds can be used to pay charges at Redpoint. Normal payment deadlines will continue to apply.
Is Redpoint open to non-students?
Redpoint is designed and offered for students at Louisiana State University and other local colleges. The per-person contracts are also designed with students in mind. Therefore, applications are accepted only from students at one of these local colleges or universities. Nonetheless, Redpoint is an Equal Opportunity housing provider and welcomes student residents with children, with adjusted occupancy limits.
What kind of safety and security are provided?
Redpoint offers electronic controlled access to each home, plus locking bedroom doors. Each home offers a security system; monitoring can be arranged by residents. Community courtesy patrols are provided at select times, plus security cameras are located in numerous areas. Management staff can be reached by a 24-hour phone number.
What are the policies on pets, smoking and guests?
Redpoint is a pet-friendly community, subject to limits on animals and breed. The community is smoke-free in all indoor areas. Guests are welcome at all times, subject to the consent of roommates and security considerations. Overnight guests are welcome, with limits on the number of days and guests.
Can I park my vehicle at Redpoint?
Yes, Redpoint offers ample parking for residents. Limited guest parking is also available – please inquire.
What other transportation options will I have?
