5 Most Popular Houses for Rent in Muncie, Indiana Near Ball State University

Each year, thousands of students searching for houses and apartments near Ball State University use CollegePads.com to find housing. Just like many other campuses across the nation, many students at Ball State start searching for housing during the Fall Semester. Students begin their hunt for Muncie rentals early in September, and the number of searches picks up throughout the semester in October and November. 

This year is no different. Most leases are signed during the Fall Semester, almost a year in advance of the date that you would be moving in, but the slackers are still signing during the spring. If you’re a BSU student with a group looking for a place, you’ll want to sign a lease as early as September and no later than November. For those looking to live alone, you can buy yourself a little more time, but don’t wait too long. Get ahead of your competition and start your search for off-campus housing before your competition does!
