Wondering how to get started on your search for the perfect apartment in uptown Athens? You’ve come to the right place. Signing a new lease on a rental is exciting, especially if you’ve chosen an amenity-packed apartment that’s close to Court St and campus.
In Athens, there are hundreds of student rentals to choose from; so you need to know what you should be looking for so you can make the best choice for you. Four factors we consider must-haves that you’ll find in our company’s rental properties are:
Close to OU’s campus
Near to uptown Athens
Central Neighborhoods: Rent an Apartment or House Near Uptown
Uptown Athens is central both to the town and the campus, so it’s surrounded by adjacent neighborhoods packed full of well-located rentals. You’ll find everything from cool little studio apartments to six bedroom houses to rent just in a two-block radius of uptown. And there’s a bunch of reasons you should rent a place close to Court Street:
Best place for an active social life
Groceries just up the street
Uptown clinic and pharmacy
Community outdoor events
Get to Classes in a Flash with a Deluxe Apartment Close to Campus
The other obvious pro of living in these central neighborhoods is you’re a stone’s throw from campus. School is sort of central to the whole thing, right? When you choose a place close to OU, that means that Tuesday morning you’ve got an exam, when you realize you’ve forgotten your bluebook when you’re already halfway to class, it’s a really short way to backtrack to grab it. Not to mention the short walks during bad weather, whether it’s 95 degrees in June or 10 degrees in February. Thanks, Ohio. Other advantages of living a short walk from Ohio University green are:
Easy access to arts events at Glidden and MemAud
Being near the center of the student social action on campus
Easy last-minute decisions to go to lectures or colloquiums that interest you
Closer access to professors
Proximity to the coffee shops in Baker and uptown
Premiere Rental Housing Near the Bars for a Vibrant Social Life
This is where our properties really shine. The locations, obviously, mean you’re living super-close to the bars uptown, and the amenities mean you’re renting a place that you can welcome friends and family into for social gatherings. The OU experience is as much about school as it is about fun (at least we think so); what better way to balance work and play than choose an apartment near uptown and campus that’s packed with deluxe features?
