What to Expect in a 4 Bedroom
4 bedroom apartments in Gainesville can be found in a variety of communities, ranging from traditional apartments to luxury apartments. They are very popular in student-centered communities, where each bedroom is individually leased. Each resident is responsible for his or her own portion of the rent, and is not tied to the other residents in the apartment. The typical layout includes a private bedroom and bathroom, with shared common areas such as a living room and kitchen. If you're looking for a four bedroom apartment with a more traditional, joint-style lease, those are available as well. These are typically the best bet for a large family or someone who is looking for a little extra space.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can I find roommates for a 4 bedroom apartment?
Most of the student housing communities in Gainesville offer free roommate matching to help match you with roommates that have similar lifestyles. When you sign your lease, you'll be asked to fill out a roommate questionnaire with questions about your schedule, major, cleanliness, and habits. Our best advice is to answer the roommate matching questions as honestly as possible (and maybe answer privately without mom and dad looking over your shoulder)!

Are utilities included in the rent for 4 bedroom apartments?
Yes and no, it depends on the apartment community! Some apartments in Gainesville will include utilities like water and electricity (typically with a cap on monthly usage), cable, internet, and furniture with the monthly rent you see listed online. You can use the search on Swamp Rentals to find apartments with utilities included. Just locate the "Internet, Cable, and Utilities" filter on the 4 bedroom search page and check off the options for electricity and water.
What spaces are shared in 4 bedroom apartments?
Privacy is a huge concern with shared apartments! In a 4 bedroom, common areas will be shared amongst all of the roommates - these are areas like the kitchen, dining room, living room, laundry room, and balcony/patio. Your bedroom will most likely have an individually keyed lock, so you'll be the only one with access to your private bedroom including the bathroom and closet.
What happens if my roommate doesn't pay his/her rent in our 4 bedroom apartment?
If you're concerned about rent responsibility, your best bet is to sign an individual lease for your future apartment, so that you'll only be responsible for your own portion of the rent. To find individually leased apartments, look for communities that have their monthly pricing listed by the room. Then, when you're signing your lease, ask good questions and double check to verify that you're signing a lease for just 1 room and that you will not be responsible for your roommate's portion.
