After looking a several resources this is what I found:

The most common usage for Apartment=Apartamento would be apto.

In Mexico they often use departamento instead of apartamento, the abbreviation would be dpto.

In Argentina they also use departamento instead of apartamento, but they use the abbreviations dep. and dept.

And in colloquial Spanish they use depa. for departamento. Hope that answers your question! smile

I thought that I would also leave you with a list of other Spanish Abbreviations:
