It’s that time of year again. Some of you are preparing for graduation and those of you who are not are beginning to plan for your next year in Fort Collins. Freshmen are beginning to look at student apartments near CSU while Sophomores and Juniors are looking for a more desirable place to live than their current accommodations.

When searching for a new student apartment near CSU, there are likely a few “must-have” accommodations that you have on your list. For younger students, the must-have accommodations might be unclear. For older students, however, these must-have accommodations usually stem from the lack of accommodations available to you during your current housing experience.

In today’s blog post we will be discussing a few of the most common reasons that students seek new housing accommodations after their Sophomore or Junior years.  Freshmen, let this be something that you keep in mind when shopping around for off-campus housing.


When you are searching for your first place to live outside of the campus dorms it is incredibly easy to overlook the location of your new apartment or house. While it might seem like location is a pretty big thing to overlook, when you live on campus for over a year anything off-campus appears to be desirable.

When you are looking for CSU off-campus housing it is important to choose a location that is close to campus, or close to the proper public transportation that can be used to access campus. The Landmark Apartments are only a short walk from campus (nudge nudge, wink wink).


Similar to the housing location, management is also a common reason that people choose to seek alternative housing. For single-family homes that are being rented, it is not uncommon that people discover that their landlord is too strict, too controlling, or simply around too often. For apartments near CSU, it is often an unresponsive management staff or a management staff that has duped you and your roommates into a poorly written contract with surprise fees.

As a Freshman, it can be easy to overlook the fine print of a lease agreement simply because you are excited to move off campus. In order to avoid being roped into an unsavory lease agreement, it is important that you closely review the lease. Heck, even let your parents look at it.

Roommate Issues

If there is one thing that you learn in college, it is that while you might love hanging out with a friend, you might not enjoy living with them. Sadly, it is not uncommon for roommate issues to be feuds with no resolve. When this happens, one or more people usually have to begin shopping around for a new form of CSU off-campus housing.

If you end up being the one that has to look for a new place to live, consider subletting your current room and moving to one of the different student apartments near CSU — a student apartment like the Landmark Apartments.
