Meet The


Samantha Margarum

My name is Samantha Margarum and I’m the new Lowell Property Manager. I come from the North, so please forgive me if I say you guys and not y’all while I adjust to the South! I was born and raised in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. I went to school for Accounting at UW Manitowoc. After school, I relocated to West Lafayette, Indiana and worked in Off-Campus College Student Living for 6 years, managing a complex 1.5 miles from Purdue University. I was nominated Leasing Manager Of The Year in 2018 and Assistant General Manager Of The Year in 2020 at Campus Advantage. After the Pandemic chaos we have all been experiencing, I realized family is all you really got. With that being said my family and I decided to relocate to Georgia to be closer to many of my relatives in September 2021. After searching for a career, I found The Lowell and had my heart set on this property and the opportunity to be the new Property Manager! I am ecstatic to be here and feel that altogether, the new management team will continue to improve The Lowell experience and lifestyle! Life is short, always choose happiness!

Frequently Asked Questions

What does it mean to have an individual lease?

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.

What is included in the rent?

The Lowell rent includes: Internet, water, sewer, trash & recycling, washer & dryer, and access to all of The Lowell’s amenities, and a wonderful staff that is there to help you anytime you need them.

Do you have a roommate matching system?

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.

When is my installment due?

You have three installment payment options to pay the entire amount due under the lease – one installment, three 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 three semester installments, those installments are due August 1, September 1, and February 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.

How do I pay my installment?

We accept payment via check, money order, or through the online system.

Do you allow pets?

Yes, we are pet friendly!  Please call for details.

Is there insurance coverage in the event of a fire, theft or natural causes? Does my lease provide coverage for my belongings?

The Lowell’s insurance will not cover your personal belongings. You are required to have renter’s insurance for this reason. It is generally inexpensive and will cover your personal belongings if something were to happen.

What if I need to break my lease or don't return for the spring semester?

The Lowell’s lease is binding and cannot be broken. If you cannot live at The Lowell after signing your lease, you will need to re-let. Please call the leasing office for information on re-letting.

What if I need maintenance in my bedroom or apartment?

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.

What furniture is provided?

The Lowell comes fully equipped with a full size bed, dresser, night stand, desk, and desk chair for the bedroom and a sofa, arm chair, coffee table, end table, dining table and dining chairs for the common area as well as a refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, stove/oven and washer & dryer.

How do I receive mail and packages?

Your mail will be delivered to your apartment’s mailbox located on The Lowell’s property.

What do I need to bring to my new apartment?

We suggest that you bring: 

  • Bedding for a Full-Size bed
  • Toiletries
  • Dishes/Cookware
  • Decorations to make your new room feel like home!

What kinds of events do you have at The Lowell?

The Lowell has resident events that range from pizza parties to Taco Tuesdays. Not only is there free food at events, but it’s also a great way to meet people!

What if I don't have a Guarantor?

No Guarantor? No Problem, The Lowell offers Leap as an option! Leap is a quick and easy process that fills in for a guarantor or parent co-signer. Leap's application is free online and takes around 5 minutes to complete. You will get a conditional decision within 30 minutes during normal business hours. Click here to apply or contact the office for more information.

Are leases for families with children available?

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.
