These properties usually contain 10-20 units. Unlike apartment complexes, each unit is individually owned and managed. Condominium units are generally more budget-friendly, private, and unique. Parking is almost always included with rent.
Renting a house with a group of friends is sure to be fun. Houses provide the most private and home-like environment but can be pricey if you don't have many roommates.
Apartment complexes provide a fairly uniform experience to all of their residents. Complexes are generally more expensive than condominiums, but usually have amenities, on-site staff, and newer appliances.

Preleasing allows students to reserve a house, apartment, or condo for the following year. West Campus starts preleasing the earliest; large houses start preleasing in September, while apartments and condos typically start preleasing in October. Those looking for the rarest finds or the best deals often have a goal of leasing by Thanksgiving. There will be plenty of options left in the spring and early summer, but they are picked over. North Campus tends to get a later start on preleasing, typically in early to mid-spring for apartments and condos but earlier for large houses. Jump in now!
