Spring semester will be here very quickly and this is an excellent time to look into affordable apartment rentals near Ithaca Collegetown. Living off campus comes with many benefits and if you've been living on-campus, well, you can imagine how much more pleasant your own place would be.
Returning students and new enrollees consider living off campus for various reasons. Budget is one major consideration and it is a known fact that you can save several thousand dollars by foregoing on-campus housing.
Privacy is the next consideration. Living in the college dorms is crowded, noisy and downright annoying for many students. Sharing a tiny room with someone who may not fit your personality or who does not share your focus on your studies can cause major upsets. Then there is the hassle and lack of privacy when you must share a bathroom with numerous students. It's just not a comfortable situation for many people.

The common space of each unit is furnished to fit the space. Living rooms may have sectional sofas or couches, a coffee table and end tables, table lamps, and a dining room table and chairs. If your building has a porch, we also provide outdoor furniture such as black futons, occasional chairs and dining table and chairs.

However, we cannot accommodate moving furniture out of the common space or bedrooms to allow you to bring in your own furniture. You may bring small items such as a bedside table, small bookcase etc. Please note: any large piece of furniture including beds, must be approved prior to moving in.
Is Snow Removal Covered Under the Lease?
Yes. Our maintenance staff remove the snow and put down salt from stairs and walkways to your building. They also shovel snow from the city sidewalk. We do not shovel snow from around your car if you have a parking space with us. Bags of salt are also placed at the front door of each building so that in severe weather, you may sprinkle salt if necessary.
How is Trash and Recycling Handled?
We employ a garbage removal company to take care of removing all of your trash and recycling on a weekly basis. Please ensure that you separate your recycling from your garbage and place these items in the appropriate bins. We have several garbage and recycling storage areas. Contact the office when you move in to find out exactly which location you should use. The city of Ithaca is very strict with respect to improper garbage disposal and they will issue garbage violations if: garbage is found in bags but not placed in garbage cans, garbage of any kind is found around the exterior of the property, even garbage bags on the front porch.
What About Utilities?
Another budget conscious question is whether utilities are included in the rental cost. The majority of our apartment units you will find that the utilities are included. The exception is mainly in regards to the full house rentals. Each unit on our listings pages specifies whether or not utilities are included. Please be sure to check those out.
