Rooms In The City Inc: 5 Overlooked Questions Regarding Student Housing

New York, NY-based Rooms In The City Inc is reaching out to share five seldom asked questions that people should be asking if they are looking for student housing. The company, which specializes in helping their community discover such accommodation, is eager to share their insight in the hope that it will help them determine which rooms best suit their needs.

“If you have ever spent time searching through the best websites for student housing,” says Rooms In The City, “you will no doubt have come across a multitude of rooms that either make you turn away immediately or seem to be just what you are looking for. While any individual can make out which rooms are obviously not to their taste or means, the real issue lies in the rooms they think just might work. Our experience has shown us numerous times that students can come across certain unpleasant surprises even when they initially believe that they have found a great deal. Fortunately, a few tips can help you steer clear of these pitfalls while you continue your search.”

According to the company, students (or even their parents, if need be) should remember to ask a few questions that can help determine if the housing they have in mind is truly within their means. At the very least, asking these questions early can save them from having to extend their budgets more than they may have planned.

The company advises their community to begin visiting student housing as early as possible in order to ensure they have enough time to locate what they need. A student will have to focus more and more on their education (and keep up with their institution’s other requirements, such as applications) as their next semester draws near, and it is always a good idea to find good student housing well in advance.

The first of these questions concerns the lease itself: students should inquire as to what their obligations are and have the owner or manager provide them with a document that clearly outlines the terms of their lease. This will give them a more solid understanding of what they are entitled to as well as what sort of behaviour may get them evicted. In some cases, students may find that the terms are wholly unreasonable and should not be agreed to under any circumstances, such as paying for bills that they have not contributed to and so on.

At this point, they will also be able to discover what the property’s pet policy is — assuming the student is interested in keeping a pet. The company advises their community to consider keeping a pet very carefully since this can be an immense responsibility to take on while attending classes and completing demanding assignments. If possible, they suggest that people hold off from having pets. Should pets be allowed, however, they should be aware of what they are expected to do to abide by the policy (including keeping all pets indoors, taking care of any messes they create and so on).

Furthermore, while some units may include utility costs in the rent, this is not true for all locations. Students should avoid assuming that such costs are included and also take this opportunity to ask what sort of amenities are available for their use. For instance, Rooms In The City says that some rental units may give their occupants access to washers and dryers. However, these appliances may require an additional investment (if they are coin operated) to be used. Students should inquire whether or not they are free to use such appliances as part of their lease.
