The Social Pledge

To ensure The Social North Charles continue to meet your expectations, we work together to maintain the four pillars of The Social Pledge:


Constant Communication

Looking for a compatible roommate? We can help. Our roommate matching services start with a detailed questionnaire for your college student to complete. The answers help us find someone with similar interests and lifestyle goals, ensuring a great fit. We also have Social communal spaces and resident-exclusive events where neighbors can meet, mingle, and build genuine friendships.


Community Rewards

Download our Community Rewards mobile app for incentives each time you write a review, submit a referral, fill out a survey, or complete a resident challenge. Through our points program and gift card rewards, you can engage with the community and earn great items from your favorite retailers.


Easing the Financial Burden

Everyone has different leasing needs, and we’re happy to accommodate yours. We offer flexible options that include room and individual bed arrangements; monthly, semi-annual, and annual payment plans; and inclusive rates—all with no double talk or hidden fees. Students have enough stress, rent payments shouldn’t be one of them.
