In the excitement of moving into student housing or in the excitement of renting a location near the university, a student could overlook issues with the unit they are renting that could cause them problems down the line. This is why it’s good to go into the initial phase of inspecting an apartment before signing the lease with an open mind and a critical eye.
When doing the initial inspection of Purdue University student housing in West Lafayette, IN, look for issues with electrical outlets. Bring a device with you that you can plug in to the outlets and make sure that each outlet in the apartment is working. Leave the device plugged into each outlet for a few seconds. Make sure that you do not smell anything burning. Visually examine the outlets to see if there are signs of burning from the past.
