      Apartments in Orlando for International Students

      International Students

      Have you recently moved to the United States and are planning to attend the University of Central Florida, Full Sail University, or Valencia College? Welcome! Finding an apartment is already an exciting and sometimes intimidating process, even for a local, but is here to help. When looking for an apartment for international students in Orlando, use our tips below to easily find a comfortable place to live so you can start enjoying the benefits and local flavor of Orlando sooner.

      Apartments in Orlando for International Students

      We know some of the processes and terms of renting an apartment in the United States can feel new to you. You're already trying to settle into a new school and new community so it can be helpful to look for ways to simplify your experience. One way to do this is to look for apartments that offer furnished and all-inclusive packages. These 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. Remember, even though you may be renting an apartment that comes with some furnishings you'll need to bring your own items like utensils, dishes, cookware, linens, and other personal items. Plan to budget and shop for these things around move-in. Also, to avoid paying multiple bills every month, consider 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 in the Orlando area can be a great way to beat boredom 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 Orlando Apartments

      Though you're likely already aware, there are certain laws and restrictions in the U.S. that you'll need to be aware of as a college student to avoid trouble. For example, outside of the United States, there are often different age restrictions on alcohol consumption. In the U.S., alcohol consumption or possession under the age of 21 is not permitted. 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.
