Refer A Friend – Earn $400.00
Here’s the deal! Refer a friend, family member, or co-worker to Dearborn North Apartments. Make sure they mention your name during their first visit because we need to know who referred them. Once they sign their lease (one-year leases only), stop in the office to pick up a check for $400.00. Don’t stop there, send lots of friends and have the equivalent of a part-time job. This deal is subject to change without notice.
Management extends every effort to keep our building clean. Although our staff cleans and monitors the common areas daily, your extra help is needed. Please notify management if you see that a light bulb is burned out or that a corridor or stairwell needs attention. Please do not hesitate to contact the office when work is needed to improve the appearance of our home.
Please do not hesitate to contact the office regarding work orders. You can also submit a non-emergency request through your online resident portal. Our staff unclogs drains, installs TV mounts and heavy pictures/mirrors, installs and removes all window air conditioners, amongst their many other talents. We prefer to fix small problems before they become big problems. If you have an emergency (Heat, Electrical, Gas or Plumbing) after office hours, please call the office phone number 312-944-4318 and you will be connected to the answering service to have someone paged for your emergency. All non-emergency calls will be handled during office hours.
Deliveries, Move Ins, & Move Outs
Please be sure to schedule the freight elevator for the delivery of furniture or boxes, which MUST be brought in through the front door and taken up in the freight elevator. We book up to 2-hour time blocks on weekdays between 10am-6pm. Saturday only between 10am-4pm for increments of 1-hour only. The passenger elevators are not equipped to move furniture or heavy items and MAY NOT be used to do so. If you will not be home, you will need to complete a Permission To Enter form at the office to allow your delivery company access to make the delivery inside your apartment. The loading zone is located in front of the building and needs to be reserved at the time of freight elevator reservations.
The outgoing mailbox is located at the entrance of the mail area labeled ‘Letters’. Please refrain from accessing your mailbox while the postal carrier is distributing the mail. If you receive any mail that is not for you, please bring it to the office. We will return it to the mail carrier. If you have any junk mail that you do not want, please put it in the recycling can next to the mailboxes. Your help in keeping the mail area tidy is greatly appreciated. Change of Address forms can be completed in person at the Post Office or online.
We strongly recommend that all residents purchase apartment insurance. While we do have insurance to cover our property, our policy does not cover your personal items.
Trash Chute & Recycling
There is a trash chute room located at the southeast end of the hallway of each floor. Please be sure all garbage is tied securely before placing it down the chute. Please be sure your garbage bag is the correct size to fit down the chute. Do not put garbage on the floor. The blue recycles bins are located beside the chute room. We recycle clean plastic, glass, aluminum, and tin, which are to be placed inside the blue bin. We also recycle newspaper, paper, cardboard, & catalogs – Please stack them neatly on the floor beside the blue bin.
Cable, Phone, Electric, & Mail Service
RCN Communications, Direct TV, USA Wireless/American Broadband, and the United Postal Service are all outside contractors over whose service the management office has no control. If you have a problem with one of these services, we will be happy to help you in any way that we can. But, please keep in mind that our ability to serve you is very limited with these services. If there is a problem with your service or account, you will need to contact them directly.
Please be advised that we do not support any phone or internet services connected with AT&T. Do so at your own expense.
Your gas will be turned on upon your arrival. You do not need to call for setup with gas.
We will pay for the heat, water, and cooking gas (where applicable).
You will need to contact ComEd at least 48 hours prior to move-in.

We have a very good entry system, but it only works if used properly by all of us. The following short list of suggestions can enhance comfort for all.
- Do not open the door for anyone unless you know him or her personally. It’s nice to be helpful, but unless you know the person, you may be inviting trouble for yourself or someone else in the building.
- If people are in the vestibule as you enter, make sure you close the door completely behind you. If you allow it to remain open, there is nothing to prevent their unauthorized entry their job.
- Please do not be offended if another resident does not allow you to follow them in, or if they ask to see your fob.
- Report the loss of a key FOB as soon as you know it is missing so we can remove its “entry privileges“ as soon as possible.
- In the event that an emergency should occur, call the police immediately. Do not attempt anything heroic. Let the police do.
If you are locked out of your apartment:
1. During office hours:
Just come down to the office and we will be glad to loan you our set of keys to get in. Just leave us a picture I.D. to hold while our set of keys is in your possession.
2. After office hours:
Call (312) 944-4318 or (312) 464-7431 or dial 234 at the front directory. Give them your name, apartment #, and # where you are going to be. If someone is available, they will meet you in the lobby. There is a $40.00 CASH after-hours lockout fee – due at time of service, in order to be let in.
3. If no one is available:
We recommend that you either try again later or call a locksmith at your own expense.
At move-in, each leaseholder is issued one key FOB at no charge. If your name does not appear on the lease, you absolutely will not be issued a key FOB. There is a nonrefundable $40.00 FOB replacement fee for all lost, stolen or broken FOBs. Every resident must use your own Fob to open the front door. Please do not hold the door open for anyone you don’t know. You can kindly request they use their own fob for entry.
Buzzing in Your Guests
To buzz in a guest, press 6 on your phone. The door will not open until you release the 6, so don’t hold it down, just press and release.
Fire Escape Doors
Although it may sometimes get warm in the hallways, please do not, under any circumstances, prop open the fire escape doors. It puts everyone’s safety at risk. If you see the fire escape door open on your floor, please either close it or let the office know.
Please do not post signs on the entry system or anywhere else in the building. It gives the building a sloppy and cluttered look. All signs will be removed. If you have an item for sale, please post it in the laundry room.
The management office is happy to allow delivery people, friends, etc. into your apartment as a convenience to you. Simply stop in the office to fill out an entry permission form. You can also email your request with your name, apartment #, date of entry, and name of the person to who you are granting permission for the management staff to let the designated person into your apartment. No one will be allowed into your apartment under any circumstances without a signed letter. Sorry, we will not make any exceptions. The person will be required to show ID before entering your apartment.
Saftey in our Vestibule
This is a big city and unfortunately, homelessness does exist. Occasionally a homeless person may find our vestibule a cozy place to hang out. If you ever see a homeless person loitering in our vestibule or outside our building, please contact the management office immediately. If the office is closed for the evening, please call 911 and tell them that you are a resident and that there is a homeless person in your vestibule. They will send someone to pick them up and take them to a shelter. Remember: panhandling is illegal and you don’t have to put up with it.
