Off Campus Housing in Auburn -- What Do You Need to Know?

 

At last count, only 21% of Auburn University's nearly 20,000 undergraduates lived on campus -- meaning the vast majority of them are looking for great off campus housing. In fact, living off campus tends to be way more affordable than living on campus at Auburn.

 

You know what that means? Whether you're a student or not, you'll have an awful lot of competition for an apartment!

Here's what you need to know so that your search is as easy as possible:

 

- Start by picking a price range

 

Since Auburn University is located smack-dab in the middle of town, it's not hard to find a ton of apartments nearby. In fact, you'll probably start off with a list that's so long it's a little overwhelming! The easiest way to narrow everything down is to focus your search on a specific price range. The off campus housing in Auburn is available at every price you can think of -- from super cheap to luxurious -- so figure out how much you're comfortable spending, and go from there.

 

Just remember -- in many cases, living closer to the Auburn campus means paying more in rent every month. This isn't the case for every single apartment complex, but if you're really watching your pennies, you may be able to save some big money simply by moving a few blocks further away.

 

- See if you can sign an individual lease

 

If you plan on having a roommate, you don't necessarily have to become legally connected to him. That's because some of the off campus apartments in Auburn offer individual leases -- meaning you and your roommate each pay for your own specific room, and you're not responsible if your roommate doesn't hold up his end of the bargain.

 

- Check the Tiger Transit routes

 

If you're an Auburn student or employee, you'll be able to ride Tiger Transit around campus -- and even to various apartments off campus. Some apartment complexes have their own Tiger Transit stops, but if yours doesn't, make sure you're comfortable with the walk to the nearest stop.

 

 

- You may still have an obligation on campus

 

If you're a student who signed up for on campus housing and the deadline to cancel it has already passed, do your homework before you sign a lease for an apartment off campus. If there isn't someone on the waiting list to take over your spot, you'll have to pay for an entire year's worth of housing!
