    Simone,

    I'm heading to Georgia Tech for my planning master's, but I've been living in Ann Arbor for eight years. Unfortunately, it is more expensive than most comparable small cities.

    There are some reasonably-priced condo-style complexes near North Campus, where the planning program is housed. I used to live in a complex closer to the medical center called Island Drive Apartments. If it is still under the same management, I would highly recommend it. I currently live in the Old West Side Neighborhood, just west of downtown. It's almost unanimously considered one of the best neighborhoods in town--a great mix of grad students and young families, and more hippie than yuppie. Downside--it's fairly expensive and a ways from North Campus.

    If you want price estimates, let me know what type of housing setup you're thinking of and I'll give you an approximate range.

    Hi,

    I have been accepted for the MUD program as well for 2005. It seems that housing prices in the Ann Arbor area are very high, especially compared to prices in the Netherlands (where I live now), which is actually pretty strange . NL is pretty dense in population, and I did't get that impression form Michigan when I was there.

    So currently i am just looking for off-campus housing of around $500/month. I guess thats possible, there are enough offers in that price range. It just depends on what you want: a 3-bedroom fully furnished apartment, or settle with a room.

    Very interesting to meet other MUD students here... hope to see you in september!
