With Columbia and Barnard’s plans for the spring semester still unclear, many students at the University have opted for off-campus living this year. If this is your first time renting an apartment, it can be a stressful experience to know what to bring. Some places may come fully furnished, while others will not have so much as a refrigerator. As a helpful guide, Spectrum compiled a master list of everything you might need to live off campus.
Staff writer Ariana Novo hasn’t experienced living in an apartment yet but is an avid list-maker due to her chronic fear of forgetting something. If you can think of any other apartment must-haves, contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow Spectator on Twitter @ColumbiaSpec.
