Finding Housing

The most common question I hear from my friends and fellow classmates around this time of year is: where are you living next year? This was my first year living off campus, and it definitely has its pros and cons. The biggest pro is that I have the freedom and independence that I didn’t get with campus/ student housing. The biggest con is that it is less convenient than living on campus. But, now, I don’t have much of a choice because I can’t live on campus and not be a student. So, I am looking for apartments and small houses in Duluth for me to live in. It’s kind of stressful because I am not 100% sure that I will be getting a job in Duluth, but I need the stability, so here’s hoping. As I go through this process I have compiled a list of the things I think are most important in having – partly because I either have this stuff right now, or I’m lacking and won’t do it again. 

  1. Counter space – I have none right now. It’s impossible to prepare meals… I have resorted to the floor… gross! 
  2. Laundry – coin or not, I can’t imagine not having this convenience… but I probably could do without and be OK…
  3. Updated windows – my roommates and I have spent SO much money on heat this winter, and it hasn’t been that cold. My house is so old, that it has a constant chill. We have it set st 62 degrees even to save money. 
  4. Safe neighborhood – always ask what the crime rate is… I have had my car window shattered and purse stolen this year… in my driveway! How annoying is that?
  5. Finally, find a place you can picture yourself in, and give it a chance. Empty places look unhappy, but picture your stuff in there and making it your own, and you might be happy with a place you didn’t think you would be!
