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
Finding an apartment in Urbana that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.
While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.
If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
