Abundant Rentals – Renters Rejoice!

Most students cannot wait to move into rentals! Whether you are choosing to live in an apartment freshman year or as an upperclassman, there are plenty of great options. Below are some of the more popular apartment rentals and complexes students live near UMD. Some provide buses to campus (which can be important since parking on campus can be a nightmare), some have facilities that rival a fancy hotel (pools, hot tubs, volleyball courts, lounges), some provide reserved parking spots for a fee, some are gated and provide constant security, and all have various options from studios to 4 bedrooms.

There are many perks of living in an apartment, such as your own room, possibly your own bathroom, and a kitchen! When deciding which building to actually live in there are several factors you must consider. The location of the rentals is something important to think about. Some students prefer apartment buildings that are as close to campus as possible, while students who have cars have more leniency on how far their building is from campus. Price is also a very important factor. Prices vary depending on the type of room you are looking for and how many people and bathrooms are in the apartment. The rent for many complexes depends on how early in the year you sign a lease. Many will also help find a student to fill a vacant room if need be. Wi-Fi is generally included in rent, but utilities are not always included or are included up to a specific dollar amount with the overage split between the occupants. Be sure your student checks all included amenities before making a final decision.
