Helpful Tips to Live Independently in the Apartments near UNC Campus

Living on campus has its advantages when you are an underclassman. However, as you progress in your academic career, you find that campus life no longer suits your needs. You need to move into your own place off-campus.

If you have never lived on your own outside of a dormitory, you might wonder what it takes to live independently and successfully as an adult. These tips can help you embark on your new life in one of the apartments near the UNC campus in Chapel Hill.

Paying Rent on Time

When you live in a dorm, you have your housing costs deducted from your financial aid at the start of each semester. However, when you live in your own apartment, you are responsible for paying your rent on time on the first of each month.

You will need to either budget ahead with your financial aid from school to pay your rent on the first of the month during the semester or work a job that covers your rent cost. If you pay late or do not pay at all, you could face being evicted.

Your apartment complex likely will have rules that you must obey much the same as you did in a dorm. For example, you will need to be quiet during certain hours of the night and early morning. You can find out more about the apartments near the UNC campus by contacting Lark Chapel Hill online.
