Best Colleges' Student Renter's Guide

According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, 2009-2011, 25.1% of enrolled students over that period (about 5.8 million young adults) lived off-campus in non-family households. Best Colleges developed this Student Renter's Guide to directly address the questions and concerns of students renting for the first-time, as well as experienced student renters who want to go about their next rental the right way. The guide address the common snares of renting, the questions to consider when entering the rental market, and how to identify and avoid rental scams, a crime first-time renters are particularly vulnerable to.
