Choosing the Best Student Housing in Raleigh

College and university student housing in Raleigh looks a lot different than it did just two years ago. Due to the COVID-19 virus, many students believe that the safest place for them to student from is their own home instead of on the bustling campus. Because of this, most schools are continuing to opt for online-only or “hybrid” classes so students may study at home where the threat of contracting the virus is minimal.

Since the spring of 2020, the Raleigh housing market has been in rare form; following the spring 2020 sales frenzy, the average price of residential real estate as well as rental properties skyrocketed. Students coming into Raleigh to attend schools like NC State University, Shaw University, and Meredith College were strapped to find the best off-campus student housing. Luckily, Revisn is always an option for students in the Raleigh area, whether you’re attending St. Augustine’s University or Peace College. Our one- to two-bedroom residences fit the needs of students from out-of-state or just around the corner. Each apartment is fully furnished and includes a full kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom, which is far more sizable than a student dorm. What makes the very best student apartment? Revisn takes a look at the Affordability, Location, and Amenities students should be concerned with before signing a lease.


We get it: students need to tighten the purse strings, especially in 2022. Affordable housing that fits all your needs is scarce to come by in a city with an upwards of seven colleges and universities. Research the areas near your campus and calculate the median pricing for apartments and rental homes. Likely, you’ll find that expanding your search for housing by two to three miles will yield more affordable results as housing in highly coveted areas of the city are more expensive. Create your budget and be sure to account for rent, a deposit, an application fee, furniture costs, and utilities.

Consider this: when you’re in school from January to May, and then again from August to December, why sign a year lease? If you’re not a fan of these startup costs for a house you won’t live in but for a few months, book a fully furnished apartment at Revisn Raleigh. These short-term apartments are offered at one affordable monthly rate with no extra utility fees, furniture rental costs, or deposits. This monthly price also include weekly housekeeping services, a YouTube TV subscription, and enterprise-grade Wi-Fi with each unit. If you’re booking with a roommate, Revisn offers affordable two-bedroom residences as well.


If you study in Raleigh, you’ll find that the Downtown and surrounding areas are all crowded with luxury apartments that don’t suit the immediate needs of student life.
