Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There are plenty of apartments within close proximity to the University, and the rental process is very easy. Many apartments require a guarantor to also sign the lease, but not all do. Prices vary but most traditional apartments and townhomes range from $300 to $600. Many students say the price of rent is definitely worth the extra freedom, space, and privacy they get, and many live with friends to split the bills, so the cost isn’t horrible.

The availability of off-campus is excellent. Tallahassee is a college town through and through and offers a high number of living options for all the students who call the city home during the school year. The quality of the apartments varies, but most come furnished; students can request unfurnished apartments if they have furniture of their own. Lots of students enjoy living off campus, but it’s recommended that freshmen live on campus for their first year so they can enjoy the campus lifestyle.
