  • Prioritize the type of housing you want to live in.
  • Develop a financial budget for rent, utilities, food, transportation, entertainment and emergency costs.
  • Consider what types of transportation are available and convenient.
  • Research the area’s safety by looking up area crime statistics.
  • Look before you lease.
  • Get it in writing! Read and understand your lease. If you have questions visit the Office of Undergraduate and Graduate Legal Aid for assistance.
