Apartments in Tallahassee for International Students

We know many processes and terminology can feel new to you. You're already trying to settle into a new school and new community so look for ways to simplify your experience. Luckily, apartments offer furnished and all-inclusive packages that are perfect for international students looking to streamline their renting experience. Since you have likely traveled a distance, you may not have furniture with you, and you can avoid the expense of acquiring it by looking for a furnished apartment. Though you may find an apartment with furniture essentials, remember you'll need to bring your own items like utensils, dishes, cookware, linens, and other personal items to plan to budget and shop for these things around move-in. Likewise, simplify your bills by looking for an all-inclusive apartment. Inclusions will vary but typically you'll find you're able to wrap utilities like electricity and water into one simple monthly payment.

Additionally, look for apartments with roommate matching. Living with other students at FSU, TCC or FAMU can be a great way to beat loneliness and make new friends. You can learn about the area more quickly and share your experience with others. Roommate matching is a simple process where the apartment community will provide a short survey to learn about your interests and lifestyle and then match you with roommates who share similar traits.

Cultural Considerations for International Students in Tallahassee Apartments

Though you're likely already aware, there are certain laws and restrictions in Tallahassee that you'll need to be aware of as a college student to avoid trouble. For example, many countries outside of the United States have different age restrictions on alcohol consumption. In the United States, alcohol consumption or possession under the age of 21 is not permitted in any establishment, such as public restaurants to a private home. Be sure you have a form of identification with you at all times. Not only for the purchase of alcoholic beverages but just because it's a good safety practice. If you plan to drive or use a bike or scooter, you'll need to be licensed. Contact the local Department of Motor Vehicles for more information. If you don't plan to have a car, there are many apartments near public transportation to make getting to class and around town easy and stress-free.
