What Questions Should You Ask When You Tour Florida Student Housing?

Touring USF off-campus housing is a great way to familiarize yourself with the apartments and amenities before you sign a contract. You’ll also get the chance to talk to staff members and get some of your burning questions answered. A good tour experience could mean the difference between you signing a contract and seeking housing elsewhere.

What Questions Should You Ask During the Tour?

When you tour the apartment complex, it’s important to know exactly what you’re getting into. Here’s a few questions you can ask during your tour:

  • What kind of security does the complex have?

  • Do they have staff members on the premises 24 hours a day?

  • What kinds of rules can you expect when you move in?

  • Are non-residents allowed to use the amenities?

  • Do they have any rent discounts available at the moment?

  • What kinds of social events do they offer at the complex?

  • Where can you park your vehicle?

  • Do they offer roommate matching?

  • Are you allowed to bring pets?

  • When is rent due?

  • How long is the term on your lease?

  • Are student apartments cheaper than renting a dorm room?

  • What’s the neighborhood like?

  • Can you invite guests over to your apartment?

Once you have a clear picture, you’ll be able to make an informed decision. Student apartment housing contracts typically last a year, so choosing an apartment isn’t something that you should take lightly.
