Things to look for in apartments for students


For students who are going off to college and have no campus accommodation, apartment rentals can seem like a daunting idea. There are a few things every student should keep in mind before renting a space: 

Proximity to the campus: The nearer your apartment is, the more money you save on commuting every day. 

Management of the complex: It is always better to know if the paint is being redone, the complaints being answered and so on. As a student, you don’t want to worry about these things later. 

Budget: Most students opt to share a space with one or two people so that costs like electricity can be split. It is very expensive to rent a space on your own. 

Location: The neighborhood where your complex is situated matters. Security and safety should be major concerns for students. 

Damages: When you go to see the apartment, make sure you examine it thoroughly and note down all the damages e.g. a faulty lock, so that you can compare it to other spaces you see. This will also ensure you are not held accountable for existing damages later.
