Hi all -

I was recently admitted to the iSchool and will be starting classes in the fall...yay! I'm moving up from LA, so obviously I will need to find housing. How likely is it that I will be able to get a one-bedroom or studio in one of the university housing complexes? I'm still waiting for my PAC number which I need before I can even apply for housing and it looks like I'm pretty low on the totem pole as an incoming student anyway. I'm wondering if I should bother waiting or if I should just go ahead and look for an off-campus apartment.

(I know there are shared apartments available and I assume those are easier to get, but I really don't do well with roommates. :( )

Any thoughts or suggestions?

I'd definitely suggest looking into off campus housing. Living in the University District or Capitol Hill would be most convenient, but might be a bit pricey. If you're willing to commute a bit (I'd highly recommend learning the bus system as soon as possible) I'd say look in Ballard. It's only about a 20 minute bus ride from campus and it's pretty affordable. Nice, quite place, so long as you stay clear on Norwegian Independence Day ;-)

Welcome to the iSchool!

Thanks for the info! Pretty much everyone I've asked agrees with you and says to start hunting off-campus...so that's what I shall do.

Thanks for the welcome, too :)
