Housing Guide 2011

Every year, between April and June, the student population of Hyde Park rearranges itself. Boxes are packed, dorm rooms are vacated, U-Hauls get rented, leases are signed, and a whole lot of students try and memorize a new address. The prospect of finding a new home is exciting, but it’s also daunting, especially when everyone decides to do it over the same couple of months.

So to students facing the pressures of the moving season, we present our annual guide to Hyde Park housing. Here is a survey of the options, and some well researched advice on finding, renting, and living in a place of your own. To those who are searching, we wish you a good fit.

Here’s to the joy of new digs.
