Housing Tips for Students

When moving to a new area, many things must be taken into consideration. Here are some tips to guide you when looking for a place to rent in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

If a landlord doesn't feel like you need a lease, walk away. A properly executed lease is vitally important. Don't rent a home without one! When trying to find a place to stay, know that word of mouth can be hugely influential. If a landlord has a bad reputation, it may very well be deserved. Don't be afraid to ask for references or talk to current or prior tenants.

It's up to you, the tenant, to protect yourself when shopping for a place to rent. Meanwhile, if your apartment has possible code violations, you can report those to City Central.

Bowling Green's neighborhoods are friendly places. We ask that you respect your neighbors by keeping noise levels to a minimum (under 60 dB after 11:00 p.m.) and being a courteous citizen.

Additionally, our city has a strict Residential Speed Limit of 25 miles per hour.
