Rooms for Rent/Apartments

The following websites can be used to find possible other housing in the area.  Please note, RCC is not affiliated with any of these websites.


  • Average rents range from $500 to $600 per month with a family.
  • Students are expected to leave an additional $500 to $600 as security deposit–usually the equivalent of one month’s rent. This money is used to cover damage to property or to cover lost rent if a student moves before the agreed time period.
  • Keep in mind that most landlords/ladies expect students to stay in their home at least one semester (4 months).
  • Rules vary from home to home.
  • Apartments may require a co-signer
  • Rent for a 1 bedroom apartment may start at $1000 per month
  • We suggest reading BestColleges.com Student Renter’s Guide when thinking about renting an apartment. Helpful Hints when Apartment searching:
    1. Make sure you are able to view photos or view the apartment in person before signing the lease
    2. Some apartments require first & last month’s rent and a broker fee.
    3. Inquire about what bills you will be responsible for
    4. Don’t move into a new place without signing a lease
