Hi future Pitt Students! I found an apartment with one of my co-workers. She has a 3 BR 1 B apartment in Squirrel Hill (right off of shady ave...by bus stops). I saw it on Saturday, and it's great! Hardwood floors, lots of storage, off-street parking (driveway and 1-car garage), and a huge basement with w&d hook-ups. (I'll be bringing the w&d). Between the 2 of us, it will be fully furnished, minus the 3rd bedroom. It's in the top floor of an old tudor house, so there won't be foot traffic noise from above. She won't be around too much, because she's a busy pharmaceutical rep, and I'll be a 1L, 'nuff said. So, it will be a quiet environment. The rent will be $400 plus utilities...and the cable (wireless) internet will be paid for by my former company.
Send me a message if you're interested.
