How do I reserve an apartment home at Metropolitan?
Although Metropolitan is typically 100% occupied, we invite you to reserve an apartment by completing a pre-application.  Completion of the pre-application will place you on the reservation list in the order your pre-application was received.  Please follow the steps below to join the reservation list:
Step 1: Click the
RESERVE TODAY link below and complete the 7-step pre-application process. A credit and criminal background check will be conducted on all pre-applicants over the age of 18. Note: all applicants MUST be able to move-in with a 1-to-60 day day notice.
Step 2: Upon completion of the income, credit and criminal background check, you will be notified via e-mail of approval or income denial.  All background screening denials will be mailed. Once approved, you will be added to the reservation list in the order your reservation was received.  Reservations are on a first come, first serve basis.  You must be able to move-in with a 1-to-60 day notice.
Step 3: When a home becomes available, those who have completed a full application will be contacted through e-mail (1-60 days prior to move-in).  You MUST be able to move-in with a 1-to 60-day notice. If you are unable to move, you will be placed at the bottom of the reservation list. 

Does it cost anything to join the reservation list?
No. You may cancel your reservation at any time.
