While it is the middle of summer, and Colorado State University students everywhere are enjoying not thinking about the fall semester, it is important to at the very least think about where you will be living when you move back to Fort Collins in August. 

When you are looking for a student apartment near CSU, there are a couple of considerations that you need to make. Is it going to be close to campus? Is it going to be far from campus? Is it going to have a ton of amenities? Or are you simply looking for the basics? And then there is the big question — how much money are you willing to spend.?

At the Landmark Apartments, we have been providing students of Colorado State University affordable off-campus housing for years. Because of this, we tend to think of ourselves as an authority in the realm of off-campus apartment shopping. 

Continue reading as we discuss a few of our favorite apartment hunting tips, tricks, and considerations. 

Proximity To Campus

When students look for off-campus housing, their primary concern is being as close to campus as possible. Why? Well, there is something about being able to walk to campus that is incredible. Well, maybe not, but it certainly beats buying an expensive parking pass that does not even guarantee you a spot on campus.  For some, the allure of living in an apartment close to campus is that they can walk home to take a nap between classes. Regardless, living close to campus is a well sought after experience. 

At the Landmark Apartments, we are located just a few short blocks from campus — in fact, we are one of the closest apartments to campus. That being said, if you do not care how close your student apartment is to campus, at the very least look for a place where you can easily access campus via public transportation. 


For some students, the amenities that their off-campus housing has to offer is incredibly important. For others, however, they tend not to care because they spend all of their time on campus. Because of this, different students often seek different kinds of amenities. But why not have both?

At the Landmark Apartments, we offer a number of different amenities ranging from a pool, a gym, a business center, and so much more. Sure, you can find all of these things on campus, but having them at your off-campus housing can allow you to enjoy the amenities without having to fight the crowds. 


Arguably one of the most important considerations for a student to make when looking for off-campus housing is price. After all, students are spending money to hopefully someday make money, so living expense budgets are often a little tight. 

In Fort Collins, it can be hard to find an affordable apartment near CSU, but trust us when we say that they are there. At the Landmark Apartments we go out of our way to try and make our apartments as affordable as possible so that students just like you can live comfortably without breaking the bank.
