If you're searching for an apartment in Carbondale, Illinois, odds are you're a college student.  There are plenty of great apartment communities geared towards students in Carbondale, but if you want the very best one for your wants and needs, follow these 4 tips:

1.  Figure out how you're going to divide everything up

If you're planning on living with a couple of roommates, are you all going to split the costs evenly?  Or, would you feel more comfortable living in an apartment that has a separate lease for each one of you?

2.  Pick a distance you're comfortable with

The great thing about Carbondale is that none of the apartment communities are too far away from campus.  Still, though, you need to think about how you're going to get to school every morning. If you want to ride your bike to campus, you'll probably want an apartment that's closer.  But if you simply plan on hopping on the bus, it doesn't matter how far away you are, as long as your apartment complex is on the shuttle route. Or, if you're thinking about living in an apartment that's closer to one side of campus, make sure it's a side you plan on spending time at.

3.  Make a list of non-negotiable amenities

The apartment communities around the SIU campus offer virtually every amenity you can think of, but some of them will fit better into your lifestyle than others.

For example, if you love burning off school-related stress at the gym, look for an apartment community that has a state-of-the-art fitness center that's open 24/7.  Or, if you don't feel comfortable unless you've got sun-kissed skin that looks like you just got back from Jamaica, look for an apartment community that has free tanning beds.

4.  Understand exactly what you're paying for

At some Carbondale apartment communities, all of the utilities are included with your monthly rent payment.  At others, you're on your own for some or all of them. Or, there may be monthly pet fees at one apartment complex, while another only charges an initial move-in pet fee.  If you're like most college students, you need to stretch your pennies as far as possible. Ask plenty of questions so that you know you're getting the most bang for your buck.

Bottom line -- with a little bit of research and planning, you can find an apartment in Carbondale that has all the comforts of home!
