College students headed to life away from home for the first time may fair better in an apartment community with the amenities and privacy of home, than in living in a dormitory. Consider the following when looking for college freshman living accommodations in Lafayette, Louisiana.
Freedom: while rules and regulations lend themselves to a civil society, dorms life comes with many more restrictions than an apartment does. The ability to welcome guests without someone watching over your shoulder, like a resident assistant or advisor would, is one such freedom. Also, having control over your roommate selection is a welcome advantage to apartment living. There will still be rules that the college student will have to observe, like paying your rent on time, keeping the noise level down, and avoiding anything illegal on the premises that risk eviction. Many would argue that living without an RA (resident advisor) builds maturity more rapidly.
Space: A dorm room, well, is a room. No private full bath, well-equipped kitchen, or separate study space exists. An apartment that comes with an appliance equipped kitchen will save many a trip to the dining hall with limited offerings and hours. Imagine your late-night study sessions not having to be interrupted for coffee runs or trips for snacks. Your kitchen cabinets and refrigerator can be well-stocked accommodating special diet needs.
Having a private bathroom is a wonderful plus when it comes to health and hygiene needs. Rather than having to share facilities and tote your toiletries down the hall, an apartment allows privacy. Having your own private bath stocked with your personal items is a small luxury for the first-year college student.
Parking spaces come with most leases at an apartment complex. Campus parking at the dormitories can be limited and further away from some buildings than most apartment complexes in the Acadiana area. If you have a vehicle and visitors with cars, the ability to park in designated areas within a well-lit gated community is a considerable safety advantage.
Finances: Dormitories may cost more in the long run. Consider meal plans and having to move to another room at the end of a term may end up costing more in time and effort than renting an off-campus apartment.
Additionally, establishing a great renting history at an early age is another advantage of renting an apartment off-campus. You will have established credit and rental history before holding your first professional job.
The ability to stay year-round and not leave for holiday breaks is an advantage students don’t always think of when deciding where they will live while earning their degree. 24-hour fitness centers, high-speed internet connections, and nearby shopping, entertainment, churches, and restaurants that come with leasing at Lafayette Gardens Apartment makes economic sense.

One of the basic needs of life is shelter. When you find yourself needing a place to hang your hat: should you rent or should you buy? It’s an age-old debate. Here are a few reasons to look into apartments for rent in Lafayette, La. rather than a home ownership:
It’s convenient - when you rent, you pay your monthly bill and forget about everything else. There is such ease in the system. You can set up automatic monthly payments at your financial institution so you don’t have to do remember anything. If able, you can even pay several months rent at a time.
You travel for pleasure or with your job - if your job or leisure activities take you away from home frequently, it’s nice to know that someone else can keep an eye on their investment.
You are planning a move—you know that work will take you to a different locale or you want to experience an area for a short time. The no hassle way to live is to rent. No worry about re-sale values and most times you can afford to rent a more luxurious place than you can afford to buy.
Upkeep and maintenance are not your concern - if the thought of having to pay to replace an ice maker in your refrigerator, repairing an air conditioning unit during the heat of summer, power washing the fence, and/or mowing grass instead of heading out to have some fun isn’t appealing to you, rent. Leave those headaches to the landlord or management company.
Community living appeals to you - many apartment compounds have organized activities and common areas that lend to meeting interesting people. A sense of family can be established for many who are away at school and/or have no relatives in the area.
You don’t like your neighbors - again, you can avoid the hassle and a confrontation and have the manager that you rent from broach the subject for you. People who don’t follow the rules of many apartment complexes must move.
You are striving to repair or build credit - being a renter that pays on time in full looks great on a credit report.
No property taxes - if you own a home, you pay property taxes depending on the value of the structure. As a renter, you avoid those types of taxes.
Amenities—having a pool, gym, maintenance, and security on site at many complexes are benefits a renter can take advantage of without additional expense.
You just prefer it—as a renter you find the living easier not having the responsibilities and stresses a home owner faces. It’s what you want and therefore right for you.
Being a renter offers many benefits. If you would like to maximize the benefits of renting, check out Lafayette Gardens Apartments.
Lafayette Gardens offers a beach front entrance pool, play areas, patios and/or balconies at every unit, gated community, two 24-hour fitness centers, on-site maintenance professionals, basketball court, and one, two, and three-bedroom floor plans.
