We offer 9, 10, 11, and 12 month lease terms on all of our Hillsboro, OR apartments. *These are subject to change without notice.
We love pets! Though, we do ask that you limit it to two indoor cats or dogs, 50 pounds or less, and at least one year of age. We ask for an additional $400 pet deposit, available for refund. There’s also a monthly $25 pet rent, per pet.
We kindly ask that all those applying for the apartment home make a combined total 3 times the monthly rent, gross earnings. So for example, if the apartment near Intel you’re interested in renting is $1,400, all applicants combined must make $4,200 per month to qualify.
All of them! That’s right, you read that correctly. Our amenities come free of charge. We proudly provide our state-of-the-art amenities as a courtesy to enhance your living experience with us! So with that, take a swim, a soak, and a steam in our pool, spa, or sauna. Invite family over for a picnic/BBQ in our park-like setting or challenge a friend to a tennis match on our private court.

Creekside Apartments’ utility charges are based on whether you live in a one, two, or three bedroom apartment home. One bedroom apartment homes have a monthly charge of $45. ($40 for water/sewer and $5 for garbage.) Our two bedrooms apartment homes have a monthly charge of $57. ($50 for water/sewer and $7 for garbage.) Our three bedroom Hillsboro apartment homes have a monthly charge of $70. ($60 for water/sewer and $10 for garbage.) We happily cover all recycling charges! These amounts are not included in the stated rent. Residents are responsible for setting up their own Portland General Electric (PGE) account, which is required before taking possession of the apartment, and pay them directly.
Residents are approved with either a $350 deposit or an amount equal to one month’s rent. This is determined after our third party vendor reviews your rental history, credit check, and criminal background check. *Security deposit amounts are subject to change at any time without notice.
As soon as possible! The second you submit your application, proof of income, identification, and pay your application fee(s), your application gets sent to our third party screening company to review.
