Apartments with Washer and Dryer Included | University of South Florida
As you are searching for the perfect apartment to call home near USF, you may also be wondering about what to pack, and if you'll bring your entire wardrobe or try to pack light. Apartments with a washer and dryer included might make that decision easier. This also brings up the dreaded thought of tackling laundry once you move out. Although it isn't something that's fun to think about, it should definitely be a part of your decision when choosing an apartment. Rent may be less expensive if your apartment doesn't include a washer and dryer. However, sometimes convenience is worth the investment. Below are a couple of reasons you may opt for an apartment with a washer and dryer.
When a washer and dryer is included at student communities, it will be situated in the common area of your apartment. This means you will only have to share them with your roommates. Whether you have 1 or 3 roommates, it's a good idea to come up with a laundry schedule. Nothing is worse than laundry day falling at the same time for everyone.
Although most communities will have an onsite clothes care center if they do not have washers and dryers in the apartments, they typically have set operational hours that may not align with your preferred schedule (especially if you're a night owl). With the appliances in your home, you won't have to worry about making it to the laundromat before they close. Of course, you'll still want to be mindful of your roommates' sleep schedules.
