Full Sail students are often single, successful invididuals only in Orlando to get a great education. That means that short-term leases of 9-month, 6-month or even less lengths are important for those temporarily in town. Short-term leases may be rare but are incredibly important for Full Sail students that need the option to leave town or change apartments on short notice. To get started with your short-term apartment search, check out the 407Apartments Guide.
Short-term leases give you the flexibility you need while you're in college. While many would rather sign a lease and forget about it for a year, some need that reassurance that they can leave their apartment on short notice. Here are several more benefits:
- Need to leave Orlando? You can leave on a whim!
- If your budget is tight, you won't risk being unable to pay several more months of rent
- You have a summer apprenticeship/job out of the city/internship – No need to sublet your summer apartment
- Don't like your roommate? Better to have a few months left on your lease terms rather than a full year
- Don't like the apartment? For whatever reason having a few months is great for this as well
For whatever your reason is, short-term leases ARE available. Though available in the East Orlando area, they may be limited. Go to Orlando's Apartment Guide and view the map to see a list of available apartments. Go to the filter “Lease Length” and check off the box of length you want.
Semesters are Full Sail vary under different tracking programs. If you don't know what exactly your first semester will look like when you move to Orlando then it may be best to consider 6-month or short-term leases.
If you know you'll be leaving the summer only (internship/vacation/family) then you should consider searching for a 9-month lease. You just need a way to store your belongings in the meantime while you're out of the city. This option lets you rest easy for the summer knowing you aren't accumulating massive rental costs while you aren't even living there!
If you're finishing up your last semester at Full Sail then try the 6-months term or short-term options. Same options apply and you'll be thanking yourself if you graduate with a job offer out of the city or across town and aren't stuck with a rental near Full Sail.
With that saying, a full lease term is the most convenient option if you're under time constraints or have a monthly budget. The most affordable options are usually the ones spread out over 12-months. Try using the 407Apartments Guide to see what your options are and see what prices are available near Full Sail.
