Get a Roomate or Three We nearly always suggest choosing at least one roomate to live with since it cuts rent in half. As you have more roomates you lose privacy, but you save considerable amounts of money. Having roomates also tends to limit your risk with landlord issues since landlords and property managers are more responsive. You'll have people to explore the city with, hang out with, and best of all study all that music with! Let the Jam Session begin! Things to ask when looking for a place: 1. What will utilities cost? 2. How far is the subway or bus from the apartment? 3. Who else lives in the building? Students? Older people that prefer quiet after 9pm? 4. Is parking included? (if you have a car) 5. What deposits are required up front? First? Last? Save Deposit? Where to go for additional questions Probably the most reliable source of information is your college's Housing Resources Department.
