Top 5 Tips for Students Moving to Waco

  1. Plan Your Move-In and Move-Out Dates

When you’re moving for school, it’s important to plan your move-in and move-out dates. Whether your family is helping you move or you’re driving by yourself, you will want to be prepared in advance for your move to Waco. Planning this out will help you and your roommates have a seamless move-in experience at your student apartment. Additionally, the leasing process can take some time, so you want to start touring and applying as soon as possible.

  1. Live Close to Campus

Living close to campus is a must for students. The proximity will help you make it to class on time, get to know other students, and get involved in on-campus activities. Oso Verde is only 3 blocks from the Ferrell Basketball Center, and a few more blocks away from the Baylor Student Life Center. However, if you don’t want to walk this distance, you can always use our on-site campus shuttle to get to classes! When you live at a student apartment complex, you get perks that you may not receive further away from campus.

  1. Get Involved in Student Organizations

Moving is scary, especially when you have to meet new people and branch out. On-campus student organizations can help make this less stressful. Baylor University offers a variety of organizations that will have something for everyone. Whether you enjoy sports, politics, food, or anything else, you can find a club or team that will suit your lifestyle here.

  1. Be Prepared for Hot Weather

If you’re moving from somewhere further north, you’ll want to be prepared for hot, Texas summers. The temperatures easily reach 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and you’ll want to pack accordingly and drink a lot of water. Staying hydrated and wearing appropriate clothes will help you enjoy the outdoors and explore Waco over the summer!

  1. Check Out Local Favorites

Although you live close to campus at Oso Verde, make sure to explore all the off-campus restaurants. We love the local food in Waco, and you will too. Don’t miss out on places like Brown House Café, Uncle Dan’s, Leal’s, La Fiesta, and all the other restaurants in the area. There’s so much to do off campus as well!
