We want you to be successful throughout your time in the Medical Center. Life Tower offers a strong foundation and environment to generate success. We are confident your time here will be amazing, however you may still have some questions.
Individual leasing means peace of mind for you. Your financial responsibility is only for your space unlike many apartments or rental houses where a joint lease is signed. If a roommate transfers to another school or moves out of Life Tower for any reason, you do not have to worry about having to cover their portion of rent. This is just another reason why Life Tower is your best housing option!
Our maintenance staff will respond to your maintenance issues quickly and professionally. Life Tower offers 24-hour emergency maintenance as well so that your comfort is not affected.
Life Tower has spacious floor plan options so they will easily be able to find one to suit their needs. We have studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and four-bedroom apartment homes. They each come fully furnished including all major appliances and a TV in the living room.
If you do not have a roommate in mind, we can find one! Each roommate will fill out a Roommate Matching form so that we know what they are looking for in a roommate. During the summer, we spend weeks looking at these preferences and matching them up with the best person we can find!
While the main focus of your college career will be about graduating and getting a fulfilling job, they also need to have fun along the way. At Life Tower, your experience here will create life-long relationships and connections that will make them even more successful. Our great staff plans monthly resident events to get everyone involved. These events range from pizza parties to karaoke nights, from resume building classes to gaming tournaments. We will also keep our residents connected to events going on in the Houston Medical Center, as well as events happening around town so they don’t miss anything! We want you to succeed, and that’s why we thought of you while designing Life Tower as a Living-Learning environment!
Individual leasing means that each person is only responsible for their portion of the common areas and their bedroom. If your roommate ends up not coming back for the spring semester, you’re not responsible for their payment.
Life Tower rent includes: Internet, water, sewer, trash & recycling, washer & dryer, electricity with a cap, and access to all of Life Tower’s amenities, and a wonderful staff that is there to help you anytime you need them.
Yes, we offer a roommate matching system. If you don’t have anyone in mind that you would like to live with, let us match you up with someone! There is a Roommate Matching Sheet that you will fill out to let us know more about what you’re looking for in a roommate. Then, we spend weeks in the summer figuring out the best match for you based on that information.
You have three installment payment options to pay the entire amount due under the lease – one installment, two installments, or twelve installments. If you choose to pay a single installment for the entire amount, that single installment is due August 1. If you choose to pay in two semester installments, those installments are due August 1 and January 1. If you choose to pay in twelve installments, the first installment is due on August 1 and the remaining eleven installments are due on the 1st of the next eleven months. Please note that these are all installment payment options and not monthly rent.
We accept payment via check, money order, or through the online system.
Yes, we allow pets at Life Tower.
Life Tower’s insurance will not cover your personal belongings. We suggest getting renter’s insurance for this reason. It is generally inexpensive and will cover your personal belongings if something were to happen.
Life Tower’s lease is binding and cannot be broken. If you cannot live at Life Tower after signing your lease, you will need to re-let. Please call the leasing office for information on re-letting.
If you need maintenance, simply go to your resident portal on our website and fill out a maintenance request. You can also call or stop by the front desk. If it is an emergency, please notify the front office immediately.

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.
