OMG whatever you do avoid Chandler Crossings, unless you want to be surrounded by drunk undergrads, live in the middle of no where, and want a 35 min. bus ride to campus everyday. Just say no to Chandler. I recommend Berrytree apartments through DTN management (I pay 445 (cable, internet, just pay electric which is like 10 bucks a person a month) right now for a two bedroom with a roommate) It is a 10 min. bus ride to campus, 30 min walk. Mainly law students and med students live there, it's very quiet. comes with a great pool and fitness center. Also Glenwood apartments through DTN are great too, just down the road on Hagadorn. River Glen apartments are on shaw and harrison and are super cheap! If you want to avoid all the undergrads/drunks/frat bros and sorrostitutes, avoid anywhere close to grand river at all costs, unless it is east of hagadorn or west of Michigan Ave. Arbor Glen apartments, and Marigold apartments are on Harisson and Trowbridge (south west side of campus) are both cheap, locally owned, good parking and a decent walk to the law school 20 mins. (the law school is on the center of campus so really anywhere you live off campus will be a 20 min. walk). Also look into the Oaks on Michigan ave through DTN managment. Of course these will all be around 450 a person because of the closeness to campus. If you don't mind living a bit east of east lansing (like 8 blocks) look into Campus Hill, which is a 10 min bus ride to campus, two seconds to the grocery store, and super quiet. A lot of grad students live there. Plus rent is only like 375-420 a person there so it's really cheap. Cheaper is going to equal a 30 min. commute, PM me if you're interested.
Owen the grad hall is geared towards grad students and international students, but the latter love it a lot more, and older undergrads can also live there. The rooms are a bit small and you will need to cook for yourself or buy a meal plan. It's right across the street from the law school, but it's also a popular puking and partying destination for the freshman who are stumbling home at 3am avoiding the cops. I would vote no, unless you went to a big public school for undergrad and don't mind taking it for another three years.
Also if you want to avoid paying the ridiculous parking fee for parking right at the law school, just buy a commuter pass for 90 bucks a year and take a 5 min. bus ride on to campus which drops you off right at the law building.
And last but not least, so happy you all get Izzo next year! Sad to be leaving him!!!!! GET IZZONE tickets! You won't regret it!
