Yikes, an off campus apartment would be too costly for someone like me.
I'm renting a huge master bedroom on JPA in a luxury apartment (I didn't know when I responded to the posting -- I was actually looking for the cheapest price possible lol) for 350 -- utilities included.
Off-grounds housing that isn't a residential college (like the IRC, Brown, special language housing, etc.) really isn't worth it. You're really paying for the swipe card convenience or whatever it is...
