Points to consider when renting:

  • Think about location, public transportation, laundry, cleanliness, parking, and security.
  • Bus schedule information: http://www.howardtransit.com/.
  • Before signing a lease or a rental agreement, make sure that you have read and understand everything in the contract. If you are not sure about anything, ask for help from a friend, or your advisor. Also, always get a copy of anything you sign.
  • Do not sign a lease unless you are sure you like the apartment enough to stay the full time specified in the lease.
Giving makes a difference! Your support helps students along their pathways to success.
