University Living: Can It Improve?

Finding your first college apartment as student may seem like an intimidating task.  With thousands of options to choose from, most people are easily lost in lengthy applications and hundreds of rent comparisons.  Often times, students will find, the apartment selections surrounding their universities are highly over priced.  However, there are still many options in the areas surrounding New Orleans within the apartment market that are affordable, convenient and comfortable.

A perfect example of a company who has taken an interest in student living and truly helped students in this process is 1st Lake Properties.  This company provides apartments at affordable prices, and also offers move-in apartment discounts specifically for college students.  The apartments are located in the New Orleans Metropolitan area and are close to most of the city’s universities, as well as a number of restaurants, movie theaters and shopping centers.

All 1st Lake apartments adhere to the same easy application process and offer the same Student Specials, taking much of the stress out of the search. Many of the apartments have swimming pools, fitness centers, free off street parking, grilling areas and tennis courts – amenities most dorms or area university housing can’t offer.

For the 2010 Fall semester 1st Lake has decided to take their annual Student offer to the next level and offer college students a free iPad with their new apartment as part of the “iPad for your new pad” promotion. Details surrounding student rental deals can be found on the Student Discounts page of the 1st Lake web site.
