What room types are available?
We offer three different types of rooms.
In the Shared Rooms, two or more people sleep in separate beds in the same bedroom. Additional living spaces such as the living room, kitchen and bathroom are all shared as well.
In a Private Room, you’ll have a bedroom all to yourself. Depending on the property, your bathroom might be private or shared, while all other living spaces are shared with tenants from other rooms.
If you rent the Entire Place, you won’t have to share any living spaces or amenities with anyone as your bedroom and all the other facilities in your apartment will be just for you.
How do I pay my rent?
We will provide you all the needed payment details once you’ve decided on your accommodation. You’ll pay the rent directly to the landlord and won’t have to pay anything to Student.com. Usually, you can pay your rent to the landlord either by bank transfer or with a credit or debit card.
What bills are included in the rent?
It depends on the property you rent. However, in most cases, bills are included in the total cost of our student residence. Different landlords may have different terms though, so it’s always best to check if this is the case with the property you are looking to book. Our booking consultants will be able to give you more information on specific properties.
Can you arrange a viewing for me?
Yes, we can arrange a viewing for you if you want one and if you will be in Champaign-Urbana before your move-in date. We have excellent photos and videos of many of the properties we list though, so they can already give you a very good idea of what each property is like.
