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
Parking can be at a premium in some cities where spaces are challenging to find. Some Urbana apartments offer parking options, either outside in a common area or within a private garage.
Ask about the stipulations around the parking. Those may include how many guests are allowed and where tenants park.
Some apartments may only allow parking in front of your own unit. Guest parking may be in a common area for up to one person.
If parking is scarce, look around the area before you sign a lease. Ample street parking in a neighborhood championed for its safety is probably fine. However, it’s probably not worth signing a lease if it means battling for daily parking for you and your guests.
Research whether you need a city permit to park in the neighborhood. Look into the associated costs and what to do about visitors who need parking.
Some tenants prefer garage parking near their units. However, an open-air lot may prove cheaper.
Keep in mind that the cost of wear and tear from parking outside can add up. It may be less expensive, in the long run, to look for an apartment with garage parking.
