Spouse cannot be added to lease as it is student housing

Me and my husbands situation is a little tricky. We got married last month and has been since opened a shared bank account, adding both people to bills and so on. We do, however, have a one issue. 

I am still a student (beneficiary) and will be graduating later this year, so I currently live in student housing (off-campus apartment) all year. My husband only graduated recently and has a job etc. The problem is that we cannot get him added to my lease as it is student housing and he is not a student. He is, however, currently living with me and is allowed to tdo so per my lease agreement and communicating with my landlord.


Do we try to prove/confirm that he is living with me through other means (bills etc.) or should we say that due to it being student housing he cannot be added to the lease so we will provide them with a lease later this year when we move in together "officially"?


We obviously do not want to lie. He IS living with me and is allowed to do so. He CANNOT be added to the lease. 


If anyone has any ideas on how to go about this, it would be appreciated.

Make sure you have same address on IDs. Change his statements / paid checks to your address. You can write a statement why he is not on lease.  Good luck.

In my opinion, having someone on the lease / mortgage is a good way to prove you live together, but it's not the only definitive way to prove it.  I know many people who were approved without a joint lease.
