How to find grad school housing

We provide two different resources for incoming students to find housing. The first is our “off campus referral service”, which includes a roommate search tool  and the second is a Google map with where current students live. We hope that students find this helpful but our students use many resources! Read below to find what was most helpful.

I moved into a sublet for 2 months (that I found on Craigslist) so that I could figure out the city and decide on where I wanted to live. This was a great decision!

I met two girls on my interview weekend that I ended up rooming with. We came here for a weekend and found a place.

I visited in May before starting the program and drove around nearby neighborhoods for most of the weekend. It was surprising how many apartments were just advertised through a sign in the front yard.
