Even though summer break has just started, college students across the country are snatching up on and off-campus housing deals, so they know that they’ll be set in the fall. If you haven’t started looking yet, no worries! Cortland Student Rentals has got you covered. We’ve got some of the best student apartments for rent near SUNY Cortland.
The decision to move on or off-campus is entirely personal. While on-campus living has, it’s perks, like a shorter commute to class, and easier access to student activities, now more than ever, students are choosing to move off-campus. Check out some of the awesome benefits of living in apartments for rent in Cortland!
Top 3 Benefits of Living Off-Campus
Believe it or not, living off-campus can save you more money than living in a dorm. The secret comes down to knowing where to look. Of course, if you’re checking prices for places in a super swanky part of town, it will probably cost you more money, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a spot that’s really close to campus and doesn’t have to break the bank.
At Cortland Student Apartment Rentals, we know the area. In fact, we’ve been helping SUNY students just like you find safe, affordable, and cozy places to call home every school year since 1979.
One of the biggest downsides of living in a dorm is the lack of space. While you’d think that grad-student housing would at least have better, more spacious dorms, most students feel like there still isn’t enough room.
Student housing off-campus comes in all different shapes and sizes. You can choose an apartment or home with enough space for you to do the things you love in your own home, like decorating, entertaining, or working out, without feeling claustrophobic. You aren’t forced to share a room with a stranger, or wake up every morning and get ready in a communal bathroom.
Going to college is a huge milestone! For many students, it’s the first time they’ve ever experienced true freedom. In some ways, living in a dorm is sort of like an in-between step to freedom. While your parents aren’t living under the same roof, there are still Residents Assistants (RA’s), and depending on how strict the housing policy is, you could have tons of rules to follow.
Now, we’re not suggesting living off-campus means no rules, but when you’re living in an apartment or home, you are much more independent. You can decide to design your routine and your life around what works best for you. That’s a huge step and a necessary part of becoming a responsible and well-rounded adult.
