At Rochester Smart Student Housing we tend to fill up quite fast with occupants. Despite the weather, Fall is a "hot" season for us as the bulk of our students get set up with housing for the Fall school term. By no means does this mean we can't accommodate off-season student housing tenants.
Here's a quick run down of the students that rent our homes after the Fall/Winter school season ends:
Students Who Missed The On-Campus Housing Boat
Believe it or not, on-campus housing can be pretty competitive. This results in many students being put on a waiting list, while others are denied during the on-campus application process. Sometimes, the students who are placed on a waiting list will occasionally hold off on securing other housing, hoping that someone drops out, leaving a vacancy. This can result in literally hundreds of students looking for off-campus alternatives.
Most colleges and universities host a study abroad program. This is where students from different countries all around the world will come over to study for an extended period of time. These programs often begin mid-year, so the exchange students probably won’t be seeking accommodations until later in the school term. Echange students are a perfect example of "off-season student tenants."
There are always transfer students each year. Transfer students will change their school or program for multiple reasons. Regardless of the reasons, these transfer students will usually be late-registrants, so they’ll be searching for accommodations later than most. A portion of them will choose off-campus housing.
Students Changing Their Housing
Some students just don't want to stay on campus anymore. They crave the freedom of being out on their own so it's not uncommon for on-campus student tenants to turn into off-campus student tenants. Furthermore, some students may want to change their accommodation and move-in with new friends after the semester has started.
In many college and university towns, recent graduates that secure employment in the city may opt to remain living in their student housing accommodation to save money on rent. This is a very smart decision on the students part. Typically, a studio or bachelor apartment will cost significantly more than Rochester Smart Student Housing.
