Charlotte is an apartment city! The university does not have dorms, which means that you generally live in an apartment. You may either find one yourself or with assistance by Pfeiffer University. It is no problem to find an apartment close to the university, since south Charlotte offers a variety of apartment complexes in all price ranges and settings.

Several internet sites can be helpful when you start out searching for an apartment, for example:

www.charlotte.com
www.roommate.com

Renting an apartment is usually no problem. In general, you can move in very quickly, but some apartment managements require a down payment before you move in.

Important: In order to guarantee a smooth moving in process, it is advisable to bring a bank statement in English. This statement should show the total amount of the rent for one year in dollars. It serves as reassurance for the apartment management and in some cases it is required for the lease contract.
