good neighborhoods and have lots of upgrades and amenities. All of
Laramie apartments and houses are owned, managed and maintained
by us. No absentee landlords, third party managers, agents, or faceless

apartments in Laramie, and we were the first rental managers in town to
provide complete rental information (including rents, availability
and actual pictures of the units) right here on the Web. We want to be the best possible site to visit for
Laramie apartment rentals. If
in renting one of the Laramie apartments or houses you see here, see How
Lease below. If you have pets, be sure to read our pet
policy as well. If you drive by one of these properties on
to view the building or the neighborhood, please do not disturb the
Instead, make an appointment as described in the How

We give tenants with
records a chance to
renew until 45 days before their leases expire. So, the best time to
check this site is roughly 45 days before you would like to start
renting. We always list
everything that we know
available within the
4-6 months on this page, and we can't predict availability beyond that.
We also remove
units from the list, or tag
them as rented, within an hour
of leasing them. So, what you

FALL 2023 - SPRING 2024
sorry, but we currently have no vacancies. We
normally list units 30 to 45 days before they are available, with
new leases starting during the period between May 15th and
August 15th. (There are, very occasionally, vacancies at other times
due to emergency move-outs.) When tenants let us know whether or not
they will renew, we will post any units available
for rent on this page. In the meantime, we recommend that you check
advertising sites such as Craigslist to find available housing in Laramie.
When you compare rental
value of a unit that rents with utilities -- especially heat --
included. As NOAA's
normal temperature graph for Laramie shows, the temperature
drops below freezing each night for more than half of the year. Natural gas prices have increased, and
the local electric utility, Rocky Mountain Power, continues to
increase rates. And as
if the cost of
the energy itself weren't
enough, the State of Wyoming adds 6% sales tax and the City of Laramie
tacks on a franchise fee, which just increased. As a
rule of thumb, if you rent a unit without utilities included, you can
expect the total cost of utilities to average about 40% of your rent
from October to May (most of the year) and 20% during the summer
months. Be sure
to take this into account when comparing units that include utilities
with units that do not.
If you rent one of our units which includes
gas and/or electricity,
we assume the risk of all energy price
fluctuations. We save
on gas and electricity by estimating how much everything will cost and
dividing the costs up
between the units in each building according
to square footage and estimated hot water usage. The amount you pay is
the same every month (no surprises!), and you don't need to undergo
credit checks, deal with several monthly bills, or pay hundreds of
deposits to the gas and electric companies to get service. When we
heat, we do it via a single, energy-efficient heating system that
the entire building. We will even provide you with
bulbs for your own fixtures. (They're just as bright as regular bulbs,
but use less electricity; this helps us to keep the energy component of
rents down.) We make no
profit from included utilities; any savings we're able to realize go to
you, the tenant, in the form of lower rents. The
only things you pay for yourself are your own phone, cable TV (if
decide to subscribe), and Internet if it is not included with your
unit. There may be a small
surcharge if you
have a waterbed (yes, we allow them so long as they have liners).
The area surrounding the
Wyoming is one
the best places to live in Laramie, whether you're associated with the
University or not. All of our units are in quiet residential areas
easy walking distance of UW, Historic Downtown Laramie, and shopping.
If you are a student,
faculty at UW,
be especially glad to know that all of our units are closer to the
of Wyoming Classroom Building than any of the University's own
or apartment complexes. Being able to get to campus quickly without
is a key requirement, because the University has eliminated the
179 convenient parking spaces which once surrounded Prexy's
(the main quadrangle that contains most of the school's academic
buildings) and adjacent to the Classroom Building.
It has also eliminated parking to build a new Information Technology
facility near the Fine Arts building, to add space to buildings near
the Wyoming Union, and to build new buildings on the north side of
campus. This has created an acute shortage of parking on and near
parking garage is finally being built, but spaces will be limited and
driving to UW are forced to park in distant lots far
or south of the core campus, or to pay for the privilege of parking in
closer ones. "Express"
shuttle buses deliver passengers from the eastern lot (but, ironically,
the paid lots) to only two locations on campus: the Union and the
Classroom Building. (You may
wait as long as 15
minutes to catch the one that goes to the Classroom Building -- and
this doesn't include transit time.) There's
route that goes to more locations from the eastern lot, but it takes a
full 30 minutes to
campus. The southern lot has only one bus route, which runs only to the
Union and not to the Classroom Building. And the buses to the southern
lot stop running at 6 PM.
UW has also raised fees
parking permits to
unprecedented levels. (Faculty and staff members
asked the University for a reduced rate for employees with salaries
than $30,000 per year, but the University refused.) This means that
of these employees will contend with students for on-street parking
campus. Another surprise: Previously, parking permits weren't required
during the summer when the campus is not crowded. But under its new
the University requires them all year long.
Finally, the lack of
on campus parking
infrastructure has driven students, faculty, and staff to hunt for
parking on the streets surrounding campus, causing problems for the
residents of those neighborhoods. Worse still, the City has decreased
the number of spaces available on local streets by painting "yellow
zones" at intersections of arterial streets, prohibiting parking within
20 feet of those intersections. This, plus requests by many residents
in those areas for permit parking zones in front of their houses, means
that commuters who
try to park on the street near classes will have a difficult time
finding a spot.
Bottom line: If you're
at UW, it
truly pays to live
by and bike or walk to avoid the parking crunch... and that's where we
All of our units are a short walk to campus. In fact, every one is
closer to the UW Classroom Building, the
School, and many other UW academic buildings than UW's own dorms.

is due to Wyoming state law. Wyoming is not a community property state
and treats married couples as separate individuals for the purpose of
contracts, etc.) For the same reasons, every adult who is to be living
in the unit must be named on, and sign, the lease. We must deal with the actual
people who will be signing the lease -- not a parent,
friend, or any other intermediary.

tenants in person, shake their hands, and get to know them before

English with no "fine print." The security deposit is equal to the
rent. We ask that you pay the security deposit on or before the date

a lease that ends outside this period. All leases must have a fixed
term; we cannot rent month-to-month.
Each of our units contains
a range and refrigerator.
Our 1-bedroom units do not have laundry equipment or hookups within the
unit, but all have laundry facilities nearby. Those with 2 or more
bedrooms have laundry equipment (not just hookups!) within either the
unit or the building. If a unit is rented "unfurnished," it contains no
furniture other than permanent cabinets and shelves. (For scale, and to
give an idea of how they typically look when furnished, most of our
units are pictured with furniture.) If a unit is rented "furnished," it
contains a full
of furniture but not hotel-like amenities such as
and silverware. If you rent a furnished unit, please expect to use the
that's provided. Due to limited storage space and the difficulty of
furniture around, we can't remove furniture from a furnished unit.
We favor quiet, serious
who do not create
disturbances or violate laws or ordinances. Wyoming law makes it a
crime for a rental manager or owner to allow underage drinking or use
of illegal drugs on the premises. Therefore, our lease does prohibit
large, noisy or open parties, gatherings at which minors consume
alcohol or illegal drugs, or illegal activity of any kind. The lease
also prohibits noise which can be heard outside the unit after 10 PM.
We reserve the right to limit the number of occupants per square foot,
per bath, and/or per unit, as per our occupancy
standard, to avoid overcrowding and to conform to
Laramie city ordinances.

Due to problems with
maintentance costs, we have been forced to stop accepting uncaged pets
such as cats and dogs -- even "visiting" ones -- in our units. Past
problems have forced us to be very strict about this. Bona
fide, trained service dogs used by blind
disabled individuals (e.g. Seeing Eye dogs) will be allowed on
the premises unless the unit in question shares a ventilation
with other units (in which case allergens would
the building and could sicken a resident who was sensitive to them).
Note that an "emotional support" animal, also called a
animal," is not legally a service animal. It will not be accepted
unless it is
medically necessary and peculiarly suited to ameliorate the unique
problems of a mentally disabled individual (as per Prindable).
We usually receive several fraudulent requests to allow such animals
each year, so to accept such an animal, we must be presented
with a Letter of Prescription from a Wyoming-licensed
(We will not accept certificates from one of the many
Internet-based "certificate mills," none of which are Wyoming-licensed
doctors. Many of these advertise themselves
means of circumventing pet policies.) The doctor's Letter of
Prescription must certify that the animal is an integral part
an ongoing program of therapy to assist in alleviating the
symptoms of an individual's disability. As
service dogs, "emotional support" animals cannot be permitted in a
building with a ventilation system that is shared between units,
because allergens would spread to other units through the ventilation
system. As of 2017 it is a misdemeanor, under Wyoming law, to knowingly
intentionally misrepresent that an animal is a service or assistance
allow some animals that are permanently confined to a cage or
tank and do not generate airborne allergens, provided
that we know that they'll be there, approve them, and note them on the
want to turn off the power to do repairs, for example, without knowing
that a tank of tropical fish depended upon the electricity to survive.)
In some cases, we may require the floor around the cage or tank to be
covered to prevent damage to floor coverings. However, we must know
about all pets and grant written permission for a tenant to harbor them.
if you have multiple uncaged
pets, you will have difficulty finding a rental unit that is in good
condition in Laramie and should probably consider buying instead.
