90% of our furniture is from Ikea - so, like, extremely cheap ($200 for the bedframe, $60 for the bookshelf, etc.). Plus, we don't have to worry about finding furniture when we graduate (longterm investment ftw). We're about four blocks from the law school, and on the corner is a supermarket and 1-train stop.
Would you mind saying which UAH share this is (like which building)? I would love to list it as my preference if possible!
I might be totally missing something, but it seems like from the list on the website that Lionsgate and 115th are the only viable options for reasonable shares. Am I missing something?
Unfortunately, this isn't in a UAH-only building, so I don't think you can list this as a "preference." Columbia maintains a number of individual UAH apartments in buildings that also house undergrads, general grads, and non-affiliated tenants. I've found that these apartments generally appear to be nicer than exclusively-student buildings.
Ooooh ok. I see. So the ones on the site are the law-school affiliated ones and then there are other mixed ones that they might throw you in if it meets your preferences?
So is the deal that you can list 115th/Lionsgate as a preference or list specifications of what you want out of an apartment and then hope to get something good?
