Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? The houses for rent in town arent too expensive and are really nice
Personal comments:
The housing was horrible. We had plumbing problems, and many leaks that would take months to fix. The apartments were not furnished well. Uncomfortable furniture and no dishes.
