Hey there and welcome home.

We're so excited you've chosen to live with us. If you're looking to get a head start on the year, you've come to the right place.

And if you have any questions or just want to say hello, give us a shout. Or, you can follow us on Instagram for our most double-tappable posts with the inside scoop.

KEEP SCROLLING
COVID-19 UPDATE

Will the community be open if classes are online?
Yes, we will remain open regardless of the format of online or in-person classes, or whether campus is fully open. Our mission is to provide a home for our residents. All of our apartments are equipped with their own kitchen, living room and bathrooms. Like other apartment communities, we expect to stay open at all times.

Will move-in be delayed due to COVID-19?
Our move-in date remains the same, although we will have expanded appointment times and other processes to help with social distancing. Our team looks forward to welcoming you home. We will send more information via e-mail in the weeks leading up to move-in. Click here to learn more about The Scion Group’s response to COVID-19.

What should I expect on move-in day?

  • Please limit the number of people you bring on move-in day to two guests per resident.
  • The CDC recommends that face coverings are worn in public areas. Please be sure to have on a face covering on move-in day.
  • There will be occupancy limit signs posted around the community.
  • Let us know if you are not feeling well and need to delay your move-in. Your health and safety, and that of all our residents are our priorities.
MOVE-IN AND FIRST PAYMENT

If you haven’t already marked your calendars, grab a pen (or tell Alexa) to take note. Move-in begins at 9:00am on August 14, 2020. When you arrive at Ion Baton Rouge for move-in, please follow the signs to check in and pick up the keys to your new home.

If you want to avoid late charges (and who doesn’t?), you’ll want to make sure that your first installment is paid by August 1, 2020 Late charges will apply unless we have received the first installment payment within the two-day grace period (by August 3, 2020). Checks or money orders should be made payable to Ion Baton Rouge and can be mailed or brought directly to our office.

You can also pay online through the resident portal using a debit card, credit card or electronic checking transfer, or by automatic recurring charge to your debit card, credit card or bank account. There are no fees when paying from your bank account or by check.

GUARANTOR FORM OR PRE-PAYMENT

Nothing ruins move-in faster than missing paperwork (trust us). If you haven’t done so already, please submit your guarantor form. We’ll need to approve this before you’re able to move-in. Alternately, you will be required to prepay the final two installments in advance in order to move in, as described in your Housing Agreement.

UTILITIES

Please also note that there is a monthly administrative fee of $4.50 to maintain your electricity billing, as provided in your Housing Agreement. This amount will be billed with your regular installments. Our billing provider, Conservice, will e-mail statements for electricity billing directly to each resident, but all payments must be submitted to us using one of the payment methods outlined above.

RENTER’S LIABILITY INSURANCE

It’s probably not something you normally think about, but you are required to have at least $100,000 of liability protection by the time you move in, and throughout your stay with us. This doesn’t cost much, and is designed to protect you if you accidentally cause a fire or flood. As unlikely as that sounds, if something happens, you’ll be very glad to have it. How easy have we made it to take care of this requirement? You don’t have to do anything at all; we’ll automatically charge your account $11 per installment, waive the requirement to provide separate insurance, and buy our own insurance to cover the same risks. If you have your own liability insurance and don’t want to be charged for this, please upload your insurance certificate and we’ll let you know right away if it meets the requirements. We also recommend insuring your personal property—click here for an easy option for this optional coverage.

EXPRESS CHECK-IN

By now you’ve figured out there’s always a way to beat the line. And if you haven’t…well, just read below and thank us later.

Click here for the resident portal link and register online. From here, you’ll want to make sure you can answer yes to each of the questions below:

  • Did you make your first installment payment?
  • Did you enter your vehicle information (if applicable)?
  • Did you sign any pending documents?

If you answered yes to all of the above, you’re one step closer to your new views. Besides that, all you need to bring with you is a valid photo ID (and an appetite—we’ll have snacks waiting for you). Please click here to sign up for a move-in time on your desired move-in date. Contact us if you have any questions.
