2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Anchorage has extremely high rental rates. The lowest rate one can find will be around $850/mo, not including utilities, and probably for a small one bedroom or studio. Average prices for a one bedroom are $950-1500/mo, depending on where in town and the age of the building. There is only a 3% vacancy rate in Anchorage, the landlords know it and they can be real jerks and get away with it. Most of the affordable rental units are older and many are in disrepair.

College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I know there are a few options as far as close off-campus housing is concerned. I'm located pretty far from campus but my living situation was established without school in mind.

Off-Campus Housing: high cost of living. Minimum wagw won't cover it

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived off-campus during my college life. I am trying to get an apartment, and the problem is not trying to find a place, but roommates.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: The cost is appropriate and good.
