How do I tour a 3L Living apartment?

You can schedule a virtual or in-person tour online HERE or you can call us at 773.850.3916

If you need further assistance visit our CONTACT page.

Will I get approved for the unit I'm interested in?

3L Living’s standard application requirements include:

  1. Proof of ID (Driver’s license, passport, etc.)
  2. Background check
  3. Credit Check (will consider credit score, collections & eviction history dating back 7 years+)
  4. Income Requirements – Must take home 2.5 – 3x rent amount

If rent costs $1249/mth (1249 x 3 = 3750) Then you need to take home $3,750 (before tax) to qualify for this apartment.

You will need to submit 2 of your most recent paystubs in PDF format in the application. If you can not meet these income requirements a co-signer will be needed.

How do I apply for an apartment with 3L Living?

You can apply directly online for a specific apartment from each property’s “Schedule a Tour” page. Or if you have already attended a showing and are interested in applying your leasing consultant can send you an application directly and assist you through the process.

There is a non-refundable application fee of $50 and an adminstration fee of $250. 

If your application is denied you will be refunded ONLY the adminstration fee. If your application is approved that fee is NOT refunded and acts as a “Move-In Fee”.

You will also need to meet the application requirements listed in the “Will I get approved for the unit I am interested in?” question above.

How much will move-in cost? What fees will I pay?

Your resident account will have to reflect that the Adminstration Fee of $250 & 1st month’s rent have been paid before you are given keys/access to the building and your new unit on your scheduled move in date.


What utilities do I have to pay for?

Water, sewage, trash removal, electricity, and amenity internet are all included in your monthly rent.

You will need to bring your own router for internet access (upgrades available).

Loved living here! Great transition from on campus dorms to private units. The staff are kind and helpful. The property manager actually helped me move my bags into my unit when I first got there. He was very helpful in making my transition from out of state a lot easier, and less scary.
