Although a few apartment complexes have vacancies year-round in West Lafayette, many of the most coveted apartment complexes near campus fill up completely by mid-summer. If you’re a Purdue student, faculty, or staff member looking for a campus area apartment, loft, or townhouse for rent, we recommend beginning your apartment search no later than April or May to ensure you have the pick of the litter. Also, if you’re a student with no income, no credit, and no renting history (we bet you’ve got a cupboard full of Ramen and a fridge full of beer, though!), you’ll need a reputable cosigner (aka parent) to help you seal the deal.

Parking can be at a premium in some cities where spaces are challenging to find. Some West Lafayette 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.
