Normal Apartments and Normal Houses For Rent When to search

If you're reading this and October has come and gone, you may be in trouble. You need to find a place a year ahead at ISU. Maybe these are the students that score a 100 on every exam, but there are enough of them that tons of good places will be gone if you don't act fast. Most leases are inked between September and November. It's never too late to find a place but the later you search the farther away you will end up from campus.

Rent in Normal, IL

We've made tons of phone calls, but haven't been able to get landlords to go rent-free just yet. But we've found the average rents around Normal, so you can know whether or not you're paying too much. As is the case on most campuses, getting your own space comes at a premium. A majority of the newer luxury units have plenty of one bedroom units, but you're paying extra for new stuff and a rec room. You'll have to judge whether or not those amenities are worthwhile. Having a few friends is the way to go for the cheapest rent but having more than three will cost you.

Here's a breakdown of average rents per person, per bedroom:

Studio 1BR 2BR 3BR 4BR
$660.00 $690.00 $435.00 $445.00 $565.00

Life in Normal, IL Where to Have Fun

Things to Do

If you have yet to find your clan, receive free stuff, and enjoy the quad you need to check out the Festival ISU during the fall. It's got some history. Over 300 campus organizations put on their best face and try to recruit you annually and about 100 area businesses show up too.

It's also rumored that when the weather is nice capture the flag is played every Monday and Wednesday on the Quad from 10-12 at night. If you need to relax from the classroom or your computer, the Quad is also known to help with that. Close by is an area called Uptown Normal with a miniature downtown feel where you can chill, eat, and shop. Uptown Normal has a budget minded movie theater, but you also need to check out the movie showings at the football stadium.

Dining

We found quite a lineup of bars and restaurants where students love to go. We'll leave the ranking up to you.

  • McAllisters
  • Emack & Bolio's
  • Pub 11
  • DP Dough
  • Insomnia Cookies
  • Crepe Geeks

Outdoors

Even if you have no clue on what an outdoor adventure looks like, the campus recreation will help you out. If you're more spontaneous there are a handful of guided trips for you to choose from, so just show up. If your skills are not in midseason form, you can also check out the climbing wall and ask the staff for advice.

If true exploration is what satisfies your fix, just swing by the office and they can give you an idea of some places to go. Equipment can be a deal breaking investment for outdoor activities, but they also have discounted rentals. When you want to stay closer to home the Constitution Trail right in Normal will deliver on a good bike ride or run
