A lot of students live right by school in the West End of Hartford or in West Hartford like you mentioned. West Hartford is cleaner and nicer than West End, but West End is okay to live in. There's a lot of building and houses that rent out to law students in the area. I live in the West End and it's nice being so close to school. It shouldn't be too hard to find something. I don't know of any bldgs or contacts in West Hartford. Admin should be giving you a list of housing contacts at some point.
