There are many apartments for University of South Florida students and apartments for University of Tampa students available in the Tampa/ Temple Terrace area. These apartments are affordable for students and may actually end up costing much less than a dorm room at one of the colleges.

There are several types of apartments for University of South Florida students in the area. If you don't know who you want to live with, try looking at the student style housing. These apartments for college students in Tampa typically come in a four by four style. You will have your own room and often a bathroom as well but will share a common room and a kitchen. You may also have a washer and drier. You are allowed to request roommates, but they will place you with some if you are not sure who you want to live with.

If you want a more traditional style apartment and already have some roommates lined up, try places like IQ Apartments or Lark on 42nd. Still well in the range of the USF Bullrunner bus service, these apartments are unfurnished and affordable for multiple roommates. These places are great for students who want a somewhat quieter atmosphere when looking for apartments for University of Tampa students.

Tampa also has a great nightlife for college students. No matter what colleges or universities you are thinking of attending, the nightlife, bars, clubs, and restaurants factor into your experience. Whenever there are schools nearby, the party scene ramps up. Head to Downtown Tampa or to Ybor City to find some great restaurants, bars, and clubs for all tastes. During the day, Downtown is a great place for shopping and events. Try Channelside for shopping and for events, don't miss Gasparilla, Tampa's own pirate themed, Mardi Gra-like celebration!

After applying to all your universities and schools, finding housing is the next important step. The apartments for college students in Tampa are clean and reasonably priced for the college kid on a budget.
