Becoming-A-Native-CC.jpgMoving to a new city is equal parts excitement and anxiety. It's fun to discover the attractions and personality of your surroundings, but pulling up roots is always a difficult process physically and emotionally.

The more quickly you get settled in your Springs at Corpus Christi apartment, the more at home you will feel. We've put together an action plan for a speedy transition that will reduce stress with a smooth path.


  • You have a limited amount of time to make moving arrangements, so don't overthink the process. If you end up scrambling at the last minute, it sets a bad tone for the rest of the move. Immediately begin working on logistical details such as lining up a moving team and notifying utilities.
  • Ask your current service providers, such as doctors, hair stylists and vets, if they can recommend anyone in Corpus Christi. This way you won't have to rely on randomly choosing a name from a list.

During the Move

  • Scout out the closest places to get basic items like toilet paper and coffee.
  • Don't try to unpack all at once. You'll end up exhausted, and you may end up cutting corners that will have to be redone later. Set up your bedroom first so you have a pleasant refuge to use as your base.

After the Move

Now comes the best part. These resources will help you find your way around and become an "official" Corpus Christi resident. 

We want you to feel truly at home here. Our Springs Corpus Christi onsite management team is ready to help you with any questions you may have about our wonderful community.
