If you’re thinking about moving into off campus student housing near UA, you might have some questions about who’s paying the bills. How much does it cost to rent a room? Do you pay individually, or can you share payments with your roommates? If your roommates fall behind on their payments, will you all get kicked out of the apartment? Here’s what you need to know about renting an apartment near the University of Alabama.
Who Pays the Bills in Your Student Housing Complex?
Many student housing apartments allow you to choose between a one to four bedroom apartment, depending on how many roommates you want. You might be able to get a single room just for yourself. If not, you and your roommates will all pay individually. Each of you pays his or her flat fee for the room–you can’t split the fee and pay for it together. However, this also means that if your roommates aren’t staying up-to-date on their rent, you won’t be punished. You’ll stay in the room as long as you keep paying, even if the rest of your roommates get kicked out.
The fees for the room will vary across different student housing locations. Generally, a room costs an average of $800, but your room might cost more or less depending on the size.
