I'll second this, housing is pretty abundant and not overly expensive. It definitely depends on what you're looking for. If you're younger and 're looking to go out on the weekends I'd recommend using Craigslist to find something in the Fan or Museum district. These are typically older, smaller, and not as updated (unless you want to blow quite a bit of cash), but they are within walking distance to a lot of bars and restaurants.
If you're a little older and more settled, there are tons of apartment complexes and/or rental houses that are all within 10 minutes of campus. I drive by there pretty frequently, if you'd like I'll jot down the numbers for the management companies and pass them along to you for you call and talk to them.
