A college student is constantly on the go. It could even be said that college students spend less time at home during this time in their lives than anyone else. There are, however, indispensable factors to consider when choosing your own college rental housing. We at University Off-Campus Housing would like to tell you about some of the most important ones so that you can end up with a college residence that works for you.
Distance from Campus
If you have a car, this might not be as important to you; but if your transportation is your bicycle or your feet, you’ll want to consider how far away from campus you’re willing to live. Student housing units, such as those available from Wharton Rentals, are located in many convenient campus-adjacent locations.
Safety & Security
It might be worth it to live farther away from campus if you feel unsafe about the locations that are more proximal to the school. It’s better to be safe and have stronger legs than to have an easy walk to campus but always be looking over your shoulder.
Just like everything else, you get what you pay for. You’ll have to make rental price decisions while weighing the following factors:
- How much can you spend?
- Which factors are worth paying for?
- Is it worth the reduced rental price?
The more problems a landlord will handle for you, the more time you’ll have for your studies. Sometimes, however, a reduced rental price might be worth putting in a little extra effort of your own.
Cleanliness & Condition
If you can live with the condition of the unit you decide to rent, great! Otherwise, it might be worth the effort to invest extra time in looking for a place that you are completely happy about.
