North Carolina State Off-Campus Housing Guide When to search

Typically students begin to search for apartments and houses around the North Carolina State campus only a month or so after arriving on campus in the fall. Many students are contacting landlords about three or four bedroom houses in September and October in the year before they're looking to move in.

If you're looking to find a place for you and a few friends, you'll want to get started in late September or October. If you're looking for a studio or a one-bedroom apartment, you can wait until you return for second semester.

Rent In Raleigh

The average rent in Raleigh has risen over the past four years as more luxury apartment complexes have arrived. These complexes can get very pricey, very quick, especially if you're looking for a one-bedroom unit.

For houses, you'll typically be able to find three or four bedroom places for under $500 per person. The more people you're living with, often the less you'll pay, especially in a house.

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

Life in Raleigh, NC Where to Have Fun

Things To Do

Sometimes when you're in college, it's hard to find something to do when you need a break from the grind of studying. Yeah, you'll always be able to find a party somewhere or hit up a bar after you turn 21, but it's nice to have a few other outlets. Fortunately, North Carolina State students put together an awesome video that documents 54 things to do while you attend North Carolina State.

Highlights include:

  • The Krispy Kreme Run
  • Participating at Service NC State
  • Whisper In The Wolf Ear

Dining

The bar scene around campus has changed over the years. There seem to be fewer college bars around and more establishments catering to an older clientele. What we're really trying to say is that it's harder to find cheap drinks than it used to be. But there are still some spots that cater to the cash-strapped college student.

  • Mitch's
  • Rum Runners
  • The Goat
  • The Bison
  • East Village

Outdoors

The Outdoor Adventure program is a great way to get familiar with what the Raleigh area has to offer to those who are enthusiastic about exploring nature with others. From rock climbing to canoeing, the program goes on a variety of trips around the North Carolina State campus.

Pullen Park is adjacent to the NC State campus and offers the sort of free things you'd expect from a state park. The ability to walk around, check out a pond and generally just relax and enjoy the weather.
