Moving into your own apartment is quite different from moving into a dormitory.

When you decide that you want to move into your own apartment, you need to prepare yourself for the application process. These requirements are some that you might meet when you apply for the WWU student housing near the university.

Ability to Pay the Rent

Unlike a dormitory room, for which your expenses were taken out of your student grants and loans, an apartment demands that you cover the costs by any means possible. You must show to the landlord that you have the financial means to pay the rent each month on time and without defaulting on it.

Your potential landlord will examine all of your sources of income, such as wages from a job as well as your student grants and scholarships and even money that you get from your parents, to determine if you make enough to pay the rent. You must make three times the cost of rent each month to be approved.

Your landlord will also want to know that you are a law-abiding, quiet tenant who will abide by the community rules. You may need to give references who can vouch for you. You can find out more about WWU student housing by contacting Lark Bellingham.
