Apartments are reasonable and easy to find in Houston. If a student wishes to rent an apartment prior to arrival, she/he should contact an apartment locator. Additionally, inexpensive used furniture can be found in many thrift stores throughout Houston. Students can contact the Houston Apartment Association to find an Apartment Locator who can help them locate an apartment in their price range.
