4 Great Reasons to Live Off Campus in Gainesville

Living on campus is great when you first go to college. It is a great way to meet a lot of new people, get really familiar with your surroundings, and getting to and from class is a breeze. However, as you enter into your sophomore and junior years, you may start to want to get away from the cramped-up dorm life and experience what really living like an adult is like. Moving from a campus dorm into your own apartment is a big change in many great ways! Here are just a few of those reasons:

Cool Amenities

Many apartments offer a variety of cool amenities that you would have to travel to or pay for otherwise if you were living in a dorm. Many apartments have a pool, tanning beds, basketball and tennis courts, recreation rooms and so much more that are all just a few feet away from your apartment and available to you at almost all times.

Come and Go as You Please on Holidays

For many residence halls, it is mandatory for you to leave your dorm room during the holidays to go home (with only some dorms having exceptions if you are a foreign exchange student). This can be a hassle for out-of-state students who are getting kicked out of their dorms for shorter holidays or breaks and don’t want to spend the money on expensive plane tickets for a short 4 or 5 day weekend. In your own apartment, you can choose when you want to go home, no RA to tell you when you have to leave.

Freedom from RA’s

Speaking of RA’s (resident assistants for those of you who may have never lived on campus) living in your own place allows you freedom from their rules. Many RA’s can be strict and can write you up for being just a bit too loud. They often go door to door to invite you to social events that would be great if you were a freshman who was seeking to meet new people in a new environment, but not for you, a junior who just wants to get their 15 page paper done.

More Space, More Privacy

Now for the obvious. The biggest benefit of living off campus is the fact that you have a lot of space and your privacy. No roommates going through your stuff, no awkward shuffles with your floor mates coming to and from the kitchen, and the very best… your own bathroom.

Go ahead and start looking for your apartment now and remember,  The Gainesville Apartment and Condominium Guide is just the tool you will need to find the apartment that will be just right for you in Gainesville, Florida.  They have a printed edition as well as an online version to help you research all of the options and make the perfection fit just for you.  They have the largest database of Gainesville Apartments and have listed all of the available amenities, polices, lease terms, and rental rates to make your search as easy as possible.

Plants that clean your household air

If you have stuffy, humid, or even stinky air in your apartment home and you want to get rid of it in a natural and clean way, you may be surprised to find out that several plants can be used to naturally clean up the air in your home, making it fresher while also adding a bit of color to your home. From Palms to Orchids, there are a variety of plants that can have all over your home that help freshen up the air, and are going to be less expensive than having to repeatedly buy air fresheners, sprays, and even dehumidifiers. These plants can even do more than just make the air cleaner, but they can even get rid of toxins such as benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene that can increase your chance of certain cancers, asthma, allergies and other diseases. Therefore, these plants will not just clean your home, they will clean your body. Check out the link below to see what plants you will be buying for your home.

Renter’s Insurance

You insure your car, your health, as a renter, what would you do if your possessions, furniture or clothing burned, were stolen or water damaged.  If you do not have the savings to replace damaged or destroyed possessions, you may be advised to check into renter’s insurance.  The landlord’s insurance only covers the the building, not your treasures.

Renter’s insurance in inexpensive making it is worth a phone call to an established national insurance company and asking a few questions and buying to protect your items and to have peace of mind.  Here is a money article about renter’s insurance in US News and World Report.
