While there’s an abundance of student apartments to choose from in West Lafayette, finding one that feels like home is not an easy choice. Lucky for you, we’re here to help. We have listed the best ones (in no particular order) and summarized the things you would want to consider before signing a lease.
On-campus advantages are having easy access to cafes, restaurants, Boba tea, bars and just participating in campus events. Waking up 15mins before class starts and still getting to class on time is a criteria for some students 🙂
Off-campus advantages are having a quiet, spacious and affordable living. Private studios and one bedroom apartments can often be a few hundred dollars cheaper than shared leases for on-campus units. Parking is also free.
We have cleaned many of these student apartments at one point or another. If you are a resident reading this and had a wonderful or terrible 🙁 experience with one of these apartments, send a message our way.

Your new student apartment should be all spick and span when you move in. However, sometimes when your apartment is handed over to you in less than desired conditions, you can count on us to come in and fix things for you right away. Call/text us for immediate availability.
At the end of your apartment lease, you can consider CleanMyTribe for your move out and carpet cleaning needs. It’s always stressful packing and moving hence we want to take cleaning the apartment off your hands. We can have both services done for you on the same day. Please schedule a spot early as move out season spots get booked out very quickly. We highly recommend doing an in-person walkthrough with your leasing manager before move out day to ensure you get the full deposit back after you leave.
