Utilities

Like most apartments, utility services such as electricity and water service require that you make a deposit when setting up an account. Deposits usually equal the cost of 1 month to 2 months of service.

Some apartments are considered within Oxford City Limits and use Oxford city utility services, while others will be included with the Lafayette County systems. Also, some apartments provide utilities included with the cost of rent. Check with your apartment complex or landlord’s office to see what utilities are necessary and which utility providers you must use.
