The city of Charlotte has a number of well-known universities that make the city its home, which is why there are so many college students who are always looking for Charlotte apartments for rent in the city. But finding an apartment when you’re a college student can be rough, especially if you’ve never rented an apartment before and are on a budget. Let’s take a look at a few highly recommended apartments for students in Charlotte.
It’s actually much easier to find Charlotte apartments that are student-friendly than you may think. Many of the colleges have listings of apartments on or attached to their websites, or they can furnish you with a list of areas that cater to college students. The Art Institute of Charlotte, for instance, has a whole page dedicated to helping students who attend the institute to find college-friendly apartments near the school itself. It is through there that you can learn about apartment complexes such as 901 Place, an off-campus apartment complex that actually has leases that are especially made for students. Or Halton Park, which has 9 different floor plans, a multi-media theater, a coffee bar, and even an internet café, which is ideal for any college student.
If you attend or are looking to attend the University of North Carolina Charlotte, Central Piedmont Community College, or Rowan-Cabarrus Community College, there are many student apartments available around these three colleges. Two highly recommended apartments for students are The Edge and University Walk. The Edge offers four bedroom floor plans starting at $424 per person per month. They offer many amenities which include a basketball court, volleyball courts, swimming pool, fitness center, free tanning and more. University walk also offers four bedroom floor plans starting at $479 per month per person. They offer the same amenities as The Edge along with a recreation center, DVD library, computer center and more.
University Terrace located at 9509 University terrace drive is another apartment community popular with students attending UNCC. They offer four bedroom apartments starting at $230 per month per person. This apartment is conveniently located across from the UNCC campus. Units include all appliances with washers and dryers. The complex is gated with 24 hour video surveillance which gives the students a sense of security.
For the UNCC students who do not wish to live with many roommates, there is an apartment community called Colville Gardens located across from the UNCC campus. This community has two bedrooms units that start at $650 per month for the whole unit. Units that includes power, water, sewer, cable and high-speed internet, start at $830 per month.
There are many Charlotte apartments available near the many universities in the city, but look outside of this district if you want a great deal, especially if you have your own transportation or don’t mind utilizing the city’s transportation. This might help give you more value for your dollar, and it may allow you to afford an apartment without needing a roommate, depending on what you want from your college and apartment experience.
