We are excited about your interest!

The application form and process differ based on whether you qualify for an income-based apartment or are looking at market-rate options, including Opus by 2Life Communities, our new middle-income option.

We encourage you to apply early. Many of our communities have a waiting list. Our Leasing Office will let you know when it receives your application and provide further information about the waitlist procedure. Applications are added to the list in the order in which they are received. The average time on our waitlist varies, and you are welcome to email our Leasing Office at to check your status at any time. 

In addition, each year you will receive a letter asking you to confirm your continued interest. You will need to respond to that communication to stay on the waitlist. When your name is close to the top, a member of the 2Life staff will contact you with further instructions and information to help you consider your next steps.
