Default Tips for hanging a heavy bag in apartment?

Iím getting a heavy punch bag soon (70Kg). Itís just under 300 dollars but Iíve done my research. Iíd have no qualms buying it except for one reason Ėhanging it. At home Iíd have no problem hanging it as I live on a farm where thereís ample space and strong supports. However Iím only permanently home from May Ė Sept. and for Dec. (Christmas) and for 2 weeks in March because Iím at college 182 Km away (as the crow flies) and itís a minimum 3 hours journey (I rarely go home during the Semester.) So Iíd only get use out of it during the holidays. On top of this I only have 2 more undergraduate years at college where the academic year contains the aforementioned Ďset in stoneí holiday periods and I donít know where Iím going from there (Iím scared!) or how the holidays will be which is why Iím cautious before buying the punch bag. But I really donít want this to limit me. I wouldnít have gotten so good at pull ups if I didnít have my own pull up bar! I wouldnít mind spending the money as Iíd know Iíd use it and transporting it would just be like transporting an extra suitcase (I aim to be a VERY heavy puncher and hitting and bag is something Iím always in the mood for!) But if I was going anywhere Iíd at worst be living in an apartment/flat so how would I hang it up there? Iíve seen some guys on YouTube use Ďdoor Ė frameí pull up bars to hang up their heavy bag of a door frame and they say it works great (that the bar can support 136Kg anyway) and that thereís not much noise. Any other tips (or past experiences) on how buying a punch bag and hanging it worked out?

Thanks to all in advance.

My heavy bag at home hangs under my pattio and at my work site I have welded a frame onto the side of a seacontainer.

One thing is for sure, heavy bags always makes a lot of noise.

Hanging a heavy bag in a door frame must be very limiting and difficult.

Maybe check out some wall and roof mounts so you have more freedom to move around the bag if you plan to set it up at your apartment.

You could setup your heavy bag at the farm and join a boxing gym while you are studying?

If you put a heavy bag on an apartment you're getting kicked out.

I'm sure he thinks he's the reincarnation of Sonny Liston after that.

This lol, an apartment is a horrible place for it, trust me I know, I am an AM boxer and I can't wait until I move back into a house so I can set up m own mini gym because as of right now to hit any bag I have to drive to my gym, and it isn't exactly around the corner, lol.

Just throw a chain over a beam, get Col. Hans Landa comfy in a harness, hook the chain up to the harness and pull Col. Hans Landa up to a preferable height for punching. Now Col. Hans Landa can say that he is or has been involved in the sport........
