Apartments and Houses - Shared or Private
If you are interested in finding your own housing there are several options available. If you are currently in the Portland area look for postings on bulletin boards around campus placed by students who are looking for roommates or have a room available for rent. The best bulletin board on campus is in the Pilot House.
If you would like to rent your own apartment or house you can begin your search by acquainting yourself with the areas in which you would like to live. To do this, explore new neighborhoods by walking or biking. You may even find a rental sign placed on the property which is just right for you.
