Urbana: Birthplace of the HAL 9000, the only Kubrick villain more sinister than Jack "Heres Johnny!" Torrance!
Urbana is the quintessential Midwestern college town young, hip, and funkier than Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s 42,000 students make up a big chunk of Urbana’s 41,250 residents, which explains why the city is filled with inexpensive pizza joints, beaten-up Hondas bought off Craigslist, and 18-year old freshmen sneaking fake IDs into bars. Which isn’t to say that Urbana is only a college town; it is an old city with a rich history. But the dominating presence of the university which, incidentally ranks among the 15 best public universities in the country colors all perceptions of the city. The weather is hot in the summers, cold, but not bitterly so, in the winters. Since there are plenty of college students around, a thriving entertainment and restaurant industry has developed in Urbana and its sister city next door, Champaign (together called Champana). Champana is also the home of the burgeoning Illinois tech industry, often dubbed the Silicon Prairie.' So if it’s a liberal college-town with great food, excellent entertainment, and tech jobs youve been searching for, read on! See more
Balconies are a coveted amenity for many renters looking for high-rise views and opportunities for fresh air. However, you should keep in mind that balconies often come with restrictions.
Before signing a lease, ask about how many people can be on the balcony at once. Also, ask about whether you’re allowed to store a bike or other items.
You’ll also want to know about any maintenance schedules. Using your balcony as storage could result in fines and intervention from your property management.
Keep in mind that not all balconies are created equally. You may discover the views of the parking area are less than optimal or reduce your overall privacy.
Balconies can also get messy with debris, foliage, dirt, and pollen depending on your location. Renters are typically responsible for any clean-up and basic balcony upkeep.
Regardless of the issues to keep in mind, balconies are usually a big win for Urbana renters. Ask about apartments on higher floors for the best views.
