I will be moving to Kansas City to start a job on June 3rd. I have already did an internship in KC so I'm familiar with the areas of the city, but what I don't know is how early I should start looking for an apartment. Ideally I could go to KC for some time over spring break from my university, March 16-24, and look at apartments. Would this be too early for property managers to know if they will have availability for June 1st or not? If it is would it work for May 1st? I graduate in the middle of May and it wouldn't be the end of the world if I payed rent for a month and was only there half of the time, but I would prefer a June 1st move in. Also I'm more or less only looking at renting in KCMO itself if that makes any difference.

Two months generally, this is how far notice people give before they vacate, so anything more than 2 months out and they won't know if a unit will be empty or not, but it really depends on the apartment complex. Never hurts to get in touch with apartments complex's you'd like to live in and get on the list to call if anything opens up for June.

Thank you for the reply I guess that leaves me with either looking at a May 1st move in or taking a trip down to KC some time in April instead of spring break.

If you want to live in the city, here's a guide of city core along Main St MAX bus to give you some idea of layout and what's where...

The company I'm working for has multiple campuses and according to my recruiter I won't know which one I'm working at until I'm in training. So I plan at looking at apartments in the middle of KC so I'm somewhat close to all of their campuses.

I suspect which one but won't call it out. Downtown has access to freeways to every area of metro. Is best place to start, though leased units are over 95% occupied downtown. If you have trouble finding something, try condo buildings that individual owners rent out, there are many. Here's a list of downtown condos/lofts...
