Do I need to set up utilities in my new apartment?

This depends on your apartment. Many student living communities set this up for you, and it is included in your rent. Other communities, however, do not include this and you must therefore set it up on your own. If you have to set it up on your own, check out our move-in guide, which will help you figure out what you need to set up, how to set it up, and even the companies in your area to use.
