What is Fall Preleasing in Boulder?

  • Preleasing refers to the practice that many property managers in Boulder engage in whereby they are renting their properties well in advance of their occupancy availabiliy. For example, they may have a house for rent on the hill in Boulder where the current tenants lease is scheduled to expire next fall. In the case of preleasing they would list that property for rent in some cases nearly a year in advance, collect a security deposit from the next tenants, and have a signed lease in place well in advance of the current tenants vacating.

Popular locations for Student Housing in Boulder?

  • Univerisity Hilll, or The Hill has been historically the most popular location for student housing in Boulder. Properties tend to be large older houses that offer a higher occupany from 3 bedrooms to as much as 7 bedrooms. The rental cost is high for these places so be prepared to open your checkbook.
  • Student Apartments, walking distance to campus. There are a handful of apartment complexes within walking distance to CU Boulder campus, mostly to the direct east of campus across 28th street. These apartments tend to be more affordable, smaller, and include on site amenities such as pools and fitness centers.
  • Downtown Boulder Rentals. Perhaps the most expensive part of town in downtown Boulder, or the Pearl Street mall area. A historic distric with an eclectic mix of properties ranging from large old houses to new modern condos. Some properties in 2013 are selliing for over $1,000 per square foot, rents are very high. Generally you will need a car or take a bus to campus from here as it's too far to walk.
  • NOBO- North Boulder, a newer up an coming area. Too far to walk, not as popular with students.
  • SOBO- South Boulder, older ranch style homes and some apartments, closer to campus than NOBO but some locations such as Table Mesa are still a fairly long walk or bike. Fairly affordable compared to the Hill or downtown.
