Ya - I'm living off campus because I was pretty over dorm life after my freshman year of college. There's plenty of available places right around HLS, it's mostly a matter of finding people you want to live with and a place that works. A room in a pretty nice 2 or 3 bedroom apt will run you +/- 800 in the area. I'm looking for a place while I'm in LA (which mostly involves craiglist), but there are plenty of other grad students and 20-somethings who need someone to move in around there. Worst case scenario, I can always move.
