The buildings are usually old and need repair, but are spacious enough to where if you really wanted you could probably split a bedroom.
Though you probably wont find single apartments, and will probably need at least one other roomate

There are many great options for off-campus housing around MICA that range from $400 a month to $800 a month. The majority of upperclassmen live off campus, so the search at the end of the year is usually very competitive. If you want to live off campus I would suggest looking early in the year.

It can be tricky to find what you want (especially with a pet or if you don't want to sublet/share a room), but there's tons of apartments around that cost sometimes half of what dorms cost. Quality can be an issue in older buildings, and Section 8 housing, but is easy enough to avoid. Use good judgment.

In the middle of a city, housing is expensive. You can find an apartment for cheaper than the on campus housing fairly easily, and there is a lot to choose from. You need to be careful when looking for an apartment, as there are a few slum lords and corporations that are looking to take advantage of students.

Off-Campus housing is competitive, especially with the increasing class sizes. It's easy to find resources online to find a good house or apartment in the surrounding neighborhoods. I've had some bad luck with the listings recommended on the MICA off-campus housing list, and usually those listings go pretty fast. Bolton Hill rent can be pretty expensive for a one bedroom, but group housing is usually an ideal price.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
