What is the best way to find housing? Is there a good housing guide(s)? Or is it best to go through the school's housing office? Go and visit myself and look for apartments? Any other resources for finding good neighorhoods and locating places within those neighborhoods? I'd like to be close to campus, and hope to take the bus/rail to get there (I don't even want to try to deal with a car).
I know to check Craigslist (duh) but sometimes I can't get a feel for the locale or neighborhood from the ads. Jennifer, you're at DU law now right - is the rec center available to law students (I believe you BWOD, just double-checking!!)?
I would say it depends how much you want to spend. In undergrad I lived right across the street alone for $700 a month. Expect to pay around this for nicer (law school quality aparments) in walking distance. Check out --LinkRemoved-- for more info on that.
If you want to find a house nearby and live with someone (I'll be living in a house a mile away from school) you can expect to pay as little as 4-500 if all the rooms are rented. They used to have a posting board online but I don't know where that went.
You can also apply for on campus graduate housing but I know nothing about that.
You can find something within walking distance that's nice.
If you want to know if the area or apartment building is sketch pm me and I will let you know.
