Going to college is the first step towards living on your own and becoming an adult. You are planning to stay off-campus because you own a dog. However, animal lovers have to find housing that will allow pets. Read on to find out how to choose pet-friendly apartments at Marquette while in college.

Consider Your Needs

Renting an apartment is the first time you will have freedom. When looking at housing options, you want to make sure the space can accommodate a dog. If you do not own a car, then you will have to commute to college. It is also a perk to find pet-friendly apartments in Marquette within walking distance of the campus.

Ask About Pet Size

It would help if you looked for apartments that allow pets. Some apartments have weight limits for dogs. You should make sure that your dog meets the weight requirement.

Ask About Deposit

Many apartments that accept pets charge a pet deposit and an additional monthly non-refundable fee. It helps to ask the apartment manager about how much you will pay every month. The non-refundable is usually around an extra $20 a month in addition to your rent.

Bringing a pet to college allows you to have a little piece of home. It is also a good idea to get your dog behavior training to prevent property damage. Some apartments have areas for walking your dog or maybe near a park. Contact Lark on 14th at www.larkon14.com to look at floor plans and do a walk-through.
