“I look for someplace that isn’t sketchy. How do I explain this? I just live somewhere that is really sketchy. Let’s just say I look for a sink that works, newer appliances, something close to campus and preferably somewhere that I don’t have to climb stairs.  Honestly, price is less of a factor.”

“This is a little backward, but I look for somewhere that isn’t a party. I like living somewhere where I can have quiet space — somewhere that feels homey. I have found that living at the Treehouse Loft.”

“I’m actually getting married soon, so it is a little different. I look at how close to campus the place is and overall price. We also want good living space, a place where we can invite people over.”

“My list is really simple. I look for shared rooms with good roommates and good Internet.”

Christopher Cardenas, Neuroscience, Fort Lauderdale, Florida

“For me roommates are the deal breaker. You have to have good roommates, so I look for places with friends. Beyond that, I look at distance from campus and quality of the apartment.”

“I live in Park Plaza and really like it. It is close to campus and has tons of closet space, which is necessary. It is cheap, and I love my ward.”

“I’m married and have kids, so it is a little different. I look at the area to see if it is close to a park and further away from campus.”

Sarah Bohman, Psychology, North Salt Lake

“I live at the Riv, so I look for anywhere that isn’t a meth lab. I look for good management, positive reviews — parking is very important, because I have lived in places where there is no parking — an overall good atmosphere.”

“One of the biggest things I look for is the kitchen. Does it have good appliances? I prefer gas stove to electric. The way I look at it is if your kitchen is bad there is no way the rest of the apartment can make up for it.”
