Some apartment complexes offer shuttle transportation to/from campus to its residents, complimentary or at extra cost. The City of Oxford and The University jointly offer O.U.T. (Oxford University Transit), currently free of charge to students. More information on O.U.T. is available at Oxford University Transit.
Many apartments in Oxford require a lease of one year so be sure to read through the terms of your lease carefully before signing. By signing a lease, you are promising to pay the landlord for the entire time listed on the lease. Ending a lease early or violating the lease agreement can cost you the rental deposit or continued monthly payments for the apartment or house. It is common for landlords to require that you pay a deposit equal to one month’s rent when you sign the lease. Additionally, most apartments and rental houses are unfurnished. It is best to check with the landlord about whether furnished housing is available.
Local listings can also be found on Craig’s List. Make sure that the property listed is located in Oxford, as the site serves all of Northern Mississippi.
