Living in Lawrence, KS

Renters may first hear about Lawrence, KS, as the hometown of the University of Kansas and Haskell Indian Nations University (the only intertribal university for Native Americans in the United States), but this youthful city is also one of the best places to call home in the Sunflower State. This vibrant small town offers renters a plethora of activities to choose from year-round. From a state-of-the-art art center featuring exhibits, performances, and arts education for individuals of all ages to a thriving nightlife, you’ll never run out of occasions to leave your rental apartment for the night. Plus, renters with young children will appreciate the excellent public school system, while retirees coming from more expensive parts of the country can stretch their retirement dollars further by taking advantage of the cost of living here that’s slightly below the national average. However, renters would be wise to lock the doors to your rental apartment and your car at night and stay aware of your surroundings.
