Before you decide if OCC on-campus housing is right for you, it is beneficial to learn as much as you can about it. Here are a few basic questions you need to ask before deciding if on-campus housing is right for you.
You may be wondering if you can live with friends or how you will find roommates. With OCC on-campus housing, you will be able to decide who you want to live with. It is also possible for you to apply on your own. Management can use their apartment matching services to help you find roommates. Everyone who applies to live in the building has to answer a short list of lifestyle questions. This information is used in the matching process.
It is important to ask about the type of contract you will sign. Getting into a joint lease can cause a long list of problems. Make sure you find a place that has standard per-person contracts. This means that you are only responsible for living up to your contract. You don’t have to worry about when your roommates move out or if they pay the rent. You just pay for your bed space.
Find out how much the monthly rent will be and what it includes. With most on-campus options, you can expect a flat rate that includes electricity, trash removal, furnishings, Internet, and water. You will also have access to all the resources on campus.
