Time is flying and you'll soon be back at campus starting your next semester. Many students have experienced the on-campus life and are ready to move out on their own. Student apartment rentals in Ithaca can be hard to find this late in the season, but PJ Apartments can help you get situated.
As you know, the cost incurred by living on-campus is high. You will be paying back that tiny dorm room and expensive meal plan for the life of your student loan. Now that you've been there and done that, you are probably considering how living off-campus could benefit you and your wallet.
Should You Rent Alone or With Friends?
For students who need to be or desire to be very focused on their studies or who need quiet time away from the hustle and bustle, living alone can be a very attractive option. Given that most students are living on a budget, however, it can also be an expensive one.
Privacy is often very important to some students, especially after sharing a residence hall room during their first year, but this also means being responsible for all household duties such as cleaning and paying the bills, rather than splitting them with someone else.
It allows students to worry less about having friends or study partners over, but it can also be lonely at times. Living alone can be a wonderful option for students with a good social group or busy schedule.
Renting with Roommates
