Utility costs vary greatly depending on usage, how many roommates you have, and if any utilities are included in your rent. Prior to moving in, the following utilities should be contacted, billing information switched to you, and start date confirmed. Remember to cancel your utilities if you are moving out as well! Ask your landlord or property manager which companies currently manage your utilities.
