  • It depends where you live. In the city and county I live in, there is no maximum occupancy limit for a 2 bedroom. I checked with other sources and they gave a square footage amount per person. I checked with the housing authority and it said 3 people per bedroom.

    I think it all depends on where you live.

  • I've always thought it was 2 people/room.

  • Are you worried about the census? I would not worry, I don't think they are out to get people. I think they are trying to see how many people live in each area. It is best to be honest.

  • But, it's really up to the management. Sometimes people work out agreements.

  • There could be city codes. I lived in a university town and there were laws because parents of students were buying houses close to campus for their kids and then too many kids were living in the houses.

  • It's up to the jurisdiction in which you live.
