NXNW is scheduled to open just in time for the fall of 2016, hopefully freeing up some supply for traditional renters.
It’s hard to find an apartment in Bellingham. Rent is rising, and the vacancy rate remains below one percent. But relief may be on the way in the form of some new student housing.
NXNW splits the difference between the dorm and apartment lifestyle by offering student-centric amenities like free printing and transportation to campus. Though their organized into fully furnished suites, bedrooms are leased individually. So if your roommate flakes, you’re not responsible for their share.
The N Forest St. complex is under construction and pre-leasing now.
