Top Of The List



When you’re moving into your freshman year of college, it’s easy to get excited about the experience ahead, but it’s not always so easy to prepare for it. For most students, the first time they move out of their parents’ home is quite overwhelming. Moreover, apartments can be really expensive, and if you don’t know what you’re doing, you might end up overpaying or ending up in an apartment that doesn’t fit your needs. Read on for the ultimate guide to find the right college apartment for you.

1. Location, Location, Location

The location of your apartment is one of, if not THE most important factor when picking out where you live. Not only does it impact noise levels and safety but it can also determine whether or not you can use certain amenities (like laundry rooms). Make sure that your pick in University of Wyoming apartments is a safe one and that it has everything you need.

2. Read the Lease

Most students don’t even bother reading their lease agreements before signing them. Don’t fall into that trap. Every state is different, and every property manager has different policies in place, so it pays to read what you’re signing up for. As a general rule of thumb, try to get as many details as possible in writing before you sign anything.

3. Find Apartments with Affordable Rent

When you’re on a tight budget, finding an apartment that’s within your price range can be tough. Luckily, there are many University of Wyoming apartments that offer affordable rent. Likewise, consider moving in with a roommate to lower the cost of rent even more.
