Best Time to Look for a Place
The best time to start looking for a place and a roommate is anytime second semester. There is more than enough apartment-style housing in Lubbock to accommodate students. If you are looking to live in a house, "For Rent" signs start popping up at the end of each semester. The best way to get a house you know you'll like is to rent one of your friends' houses when they move out. Also, keep an eye on the classified sections of the Lubbock Avalanche Journal or the Daily Toreador.
