What about roommates?
If I do UCI housing I will be going with the cheaper school maintained units - right across from the rec center for the win. Otherwise I will probably opt for something completely different. If hubby lands a good job we could maybe afford a nicer apartment or condo. And we both like the idea of living in Belmont Shores though it won't be as close to campus - commute won't be bad if I can score a used car with a carpool sticker. Hmm, I bet there are lots of Prius' on the market right now. . .
And I have a roommate for life
I recommend them - but make sure you get a good model.
When I went through the housing application, a notice popped up to warn that availability in PV and VP is extremely limited, which worried me that the better placements were already taken.
Also, I wonder what the utility costs are, since they aren't included. Also, I think the housing guarantee only applies to those 5 dorms.
Get a prius if you can. I drive a second gen (no problems ... yet) and will continue to do so, right up until I blame the accelerator to get out of the vehic manslaughter charge.
I'm waiting for THE SUMMER OF THE KILLER CAR, since evidently we haven't heard of many shark attacks recently.
