City Guide
Getting a Taste of Champaign

It’s Illinois so you know it will be COLD here in the winter months. If you have dreamed of a white Christmas, this is your spot. It gets pretty warm here between June and August (in the 80s), so be sure your new pad has some working A/C.

Travel wise, this city covers all of its bases. Road warriors, bike lovers and public transit-goers can get in and around the city of Champaign in no time. Car owners can rely on I-57, I-72, I-74 to get from point A to point B. Railroad travel on the Illinois Central Railroad Line will take passengers in any and all directions. The Green and Yellowhopper bus line will bring residents throughout Champaign or you can hop on the regular ‘ol bus line and ride to your destination for $1. You can’t get much for a dollar these days, so hop on for old time’s sake.

Neighborhoods in Champaign:

The city of Champaign can be divided into three sections. Each area offers something different to the city, whether it’s outdoor space/greenbelts, restaurants or museums and activities.

Neil St. and surrounding area: Here in Downtown, new apartments share street names with older, established homes, parks, shopping and dining. Looking to be entertained? Head out to one of the local bars, theatres or festivals (Roger Ebert hosts his film festival here every year) in this urban neighborhood. Apartment living down here is a mix of newer apartments with work/live feel, townhomes and historic homes in Old Downtown that have been split into several apartments.

First St and University Ave.: Midtown is truly exciting and eclectic neighborhood. And it does so with unique retail stores, a commercial district, a beltway (Boneyard Greenway) and great housing options. Many of the apartments here feature great resident perks (balconies, pools, remodeled units.) Midtown makes commuting a breeze since it is centrally located and close to I-74 and US 45. Walking and biking is very popular in this part of town and within minutes you can be off the couch, grabbing takeout at a local spot or taking a stroll around the museum (Champaign County History Museum).

Fifth St. and Green St.: Area is walkable, friendly and vibrant—city living but with ease. Historic and established single-family area are the majority here, although some newer homes and many apartment complexes are scattered about here too.

Now that you have gotten a feel for this fine city and the laidback lifestyle it endorses, it's time to pack your bags. Champaign may sparkle with personality, but don’t let the fancy sounding name fool you, this place is as down to earth as they come. Grass roots meets hi-rise. Folk rock meets film festivals in Champaign. We know you’ll love calling this Midwest town your new home.

Rent Report

Welcome to the January 2018 Champaign Rent Report. Champaign rents remained steady over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Champaign rental market, including comparisons to similar cities nationwide.

Currently, median rents in Champaign stand at $740 for a one-bedroom apartment and $910 for a two-bedroom. Champaign's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.3%, as well as the national average of 2.8%.

Champaign rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have fallen moderately in Champaign, many large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Champaign is also more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Champaign's median two-bedroom rent of $910 is below the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.8% over the past year compared to the 1.2% decline in Champaign.
  • While rents in Champaign fell moderately over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.8%), Seattle (+3.0%), and Dallas (+2.2%).

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.


Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
