The university I am hoping to attend this fall for a BSN program has on campus apartments for families. They are just down the street from the campus child care and pre school. There are several complexes ranging from 550 per month to 650 which is way cheaper than off campus housing! Each complex has a playground and I think it would be nice to have neighbors with little kids who are also in school. However they do not allow pets so I would have to give up any hope of getting my dog back or getting another pet.

 

My question is do these types of apartments have the usual credit check and rental history check? I will be getting financial aid to pay my rent just like everyone else living there so I'm hoping I can qualify despite my bad credit and rental history. If anyone has experience with campus family housing please share it!

I made a post about family housing just a few weeks ago. I am hoping to get into one for this fall, with my two kids. I have already applied (and if you haven't done so, you need to do now, even if you aren't POSITIVE that it is what you want to do, space is limited) and now I just have to play the waiting game.

 

I don't think they do credit checks or deposits like regular housing. I had to pay a $35 application fee, but I do believe that is it. I'm guessing because they can just hold your degree or not let you enroll in classes if you haven't paid/ do damage.

 

Wish I had more info for you, but I'm in the same situation as you!

Thank you! That is what I am hoping to hear:) I paid the application fee and was told there were eight people on the waitlist in front of me! I'm just hoping more than eight people graduate this spring so a spot opens up for us. I'm off to find your thread now. Thanks!
