At the end of your apartment lease,
turn in your keys. You may be
charged extra rent after the ending date of the lease
if you delay, or you could be charged a fee for having
the locks changed. 

Ask your college if you’ll be assessed
a nonresident fee if you move off
campus. If so, factor this into your cost analysis
when determining whether living off campus will
save you money.

If you live off campus, you’ll be
required to pay your rent and security
deposit up front, but your financial aid funds
will not be available until the first day of classes.
Plan ahead and make sure you’ll have other funds
available to cover these payments without your
financial aid. 

Obviously, it’s a lot cheaper to live off
campus if you share expenses with
roommates. Protect yourself by making sure that
each roommate’s name is on the lease and on the
utility accounts so you don’t risk being stuck with all
the liability if someone doesn’t pay up. It happens
all the time, even among friends

When you rent an off-campus apartment
with other roommates, it’s in
your best interest to be sure they’re going to be able
to pay their share of the rent, utilities, and other
expenses. If they’re unable to pay, you could be stuck
with their share of the costs in addition to your own.
Ask each potential roommate about how they expect
to pay their share, and if you’re not satisfied with the
answer, think twice about moving in together.
