Where do you live? Depending on where you live, my advice may or may not be helpful lol. I'm currently moving to canada since im a citizen and im going there for uni. Was going to stay on campus for a year or two and afterwards find an apartment with someone.

Since your about 18, I would suggest getting a place with a friend as it might be hard to pay for your own apartment fresh out of high-school.

I'm currently living by myself but in an apartment complex with my family, so I have my own apartment and I just pay rent, but its pretty hard to pay for it and still enjoy myself.

I would suggest getting a decent job first, before deciding to move out.

Cost to rent varies wildly depending on specific locations. To get a feel for what's typical in your area, you're probably best off browsing something like craigslist.

You might also check with some kind of student services office at the college you go to, to see if they have any resources to suggest that help students find off-campus housing.

If you google "college student housing" you'll find tons of real estate sites that specialize in monthly rental of apartments specifically for students. It's how my cousin found his years ago and he got a really good one at the time for almost half the going rate of normal apartments in the area.
