I'm by Salem (Mass). Yeah I didn't think I'd see many either, that is pretty cool.

am I the only one who cares that none of these places are furnished?

I am sure that there are many in your situation.  When I first went to grad school the last thing I wanted to do was haul furniture half-way across the damn country, so I know where you are coming from.  



I am towing a UHaul from New Hampshire - should be a blast...

Yeah, that is a long trip. I am dreading my move.  I have to drive from Atlanta to Washington DC, get everything from my last apartment out of storage, and tow my car out to IN...this is going to suck.  Moving out of my apartment was brutal the last time around.  Seriously, I might have to hire some day laborers to help me load my stuff into the truck.


Summertime in NH is beautiful

I was actually hoping that I would be able to find an unfurnished place since I live so (relatively) close to Bloomingotn and my parents have some extra furniture.  However, I am quite surprised as almost every single apartment here on the UIUC campus is furnished.

To those who commented on the parking: it seems as though free parking is difficult to find, but do you know if there are lots available where I could pay for a spot?

Yeah, coming from so far out as I am I really don't want to have to deal with getting furniture.

hi guys... so poolside huh?  i've never been to bloomington but i guess if i'm going there it really sounds like i need to get down there to see about housing!  does anyone know of cheaper, decent housing?  i was hoping for the $350-$450 range... 

the unfurnished stuff does suck.  thankfully i have a bed and a desk, but it'd be nice to have other stuff (or at least the option!!!).

Accepted: IU-Bloomington ($), Case ($$), American

There is housing there in that range from what I saw, but like others have said housing in that range tends to be older and more run downish, and also still unfurnished it seems.  :-\ I wonder if they would let me camp out in the forest next to the school if I brought a tent...  :D :D :D

That certainly wouldn't be a problem...while visiting their campus it was definitely tough to admit to myself that I might not only be attending a rival school, but that their campus was so much better looking than ours...
