When you move out of your parent’s home, your mind is full of new ideas, questions, and worries. Moving from your home to university housing is a major change. You are going to face challenges that are new to you. However, these challenges that you face are going to be the building blocks that help you later in life.

One of the biggest challenges you may face is finding University of North Carolina apartments that are right for you. There are a lot of factors to consider when determining if a house or an apartment is the best choice. The primary factor will be price. It doesn’t matter how beautiful, convenient, or well-located University of North Carolina apartments are, if you cannot afford the rent, everything else is moot.

An apartment may look attractive now, but in three or four months down the road when you are choosing between buying nutritious food and paying the rent, you are going to wish that you chose a place that was within your budget. The first step you need to take before going out and selecting an apartment is to set your budget.

It’s recommended that you should not pay more than a third of your monthly income for rent. Once you have that number figured out, you can go about the process of finding the student housing that is right for you.
