10 Campuses With SUPER HIGH Rents for Students

After doing a year or two of hard time in the medium security correctional facility commonly referred to as “on-campus living”, students are itching for the freedom of living off-campus. No rules. No RA’s. No more shuffling down the hall in a towel to your room after a shower. Just freedom. But that freedom comes at a price: Rent.

While living off-campus is traditionally cheaper than living on-campus, that doesn’t mean that by choosing to live off-campus you’ll suddenly be paying thousands less in living expenses and start living like someone from Fancy Living Digest. What it actually means is that you’ll be paying a little less than you would in the dorms, but you’ll have more freedoms (and responsibilities).

Unfortunately for students across the nation, the cost of college is rising 8 times faster than the cost of wages (yikes) which makes paying for rent increasingly more difficult. Sure, there are a ton of ways to make sure you don’t end up having to sell a kidney (or two) to pay for next semester’s rent, like keeping what’s important in mind when you’re looking for your next place – I.e., lazy rivers, 24-hour fitness centers, indoor something-ball courts, and personal masseuses are not necessary amenities to have in your next rental.

  8. Western Washington University
  9. University of Arizona
  10. Penn State University 

While there are hundreds of different factors leading up to why these schools have the most expensive average rent prices for student renters, the main factors that affect the cost of rent include: Enrollment, Luxury Apartments, School Prestige, and Vacancy Rate. So let’s dive into the reasons why each campus is so expensive.

Five of the Most Instagrammable Spots in Tucson

It’s been said that there are three versions of you. We don’t know who said that, but they said it and they are wrong. According to Dr. Dolly Parton and her breakthroughs in human psychology, there are actually four versions of you: The LinkedIn You, Facebook You, The Tinder You, and more importantly – The Instagram You.

The Instagram You is the best version of yourself. It’s the version of you that makes everyone think you’re living your best life 24/7 … when in actuality most of the time you’re as hungover and lost as the rest of us. But in the spirit of keeping the illusion going, we’ve created a list of the best spots in Tucson to snap a few pics for your Gram (when you’re not looking for an apartment near the University of Arizona.)
