How to Select Student Housing Amid COVID-19

Finding student housing is not typically a walk in the park for incoming college students, and the current Coronavirus pandemic is not making it any easier. Fear not! Revisn fully furnished, short-term apartments in Downtown Raleigh, NC has created a guide to help students locate the best housing options.


The safest place for students studying on location at college campuses is their own home. COVID-19 clusters began forming on and near campuses across America when in-person classes resumed this fall. Because of this, most schools are now opting for online-only classes so students may study at home where the threat of contracting the virus is minimal. If you are a student seeking temporary housing during the school year that is reliably safe and sanitized, consider Revisn. Our temporary student housing upholds a mandatory mask policy, frequent cleanings of common areas and high-touch surfaces throughout the day, and stringent social distancing guidelines. Revisn is committed to the safety of all our guests and staff by implementing the above and more, including daily temperature checks of all employees, no-contact check-in, and guaranteed sanitation of airflow.

We get it: students need to tighten the purse strings, especially amid our current times. Affordable housing that fits all your needs is scarce to come by in a city with an upwards of five 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.
