I found an apartment!

and it accepts ALL my fur babies!

It's within walking distance to campus, comes furnished, and includes parking.

I went to Boston last week for my school's open house and to check out potential housing. I only saw a couple of places, and I'm glad that one of the places ended up working out. I signed the lease and submitted the security deposit/last month's rent, so everything is looking good. That's one less thing to worry about. =)

Also, Boston is amazing. I love it. I am in love with my program, my cohort, and just everything. I'm seriously so excited.

Congratulations! Did you move in immediately, or are you holding it for move-in come August? I'm hoping to do something like the latter so I'm curious how that would work...

Hey, congrats! I'm also looking for an apartment near Harvard for the fall. Mind if I ask for some details about where you'll be living / how you found it / etc? Any advice appreciated (:

I'm holding it for move in in August. =)

The current tenant will be moving out in the summer and the owner was trying to find a replacement tenant.

Basically, a bunch of browsing/emailing on craigslist in different categories. This one was in the "apartments by owner" category, which I liked, since there is no broker fee. It's on Western Ave - right near the business school and Charles River. It's actually in a neat location because it's equidistant from both the Central Square and Harvard Square stops.

 

I'd say it's a hassle trying to find things on your own but it's definitely doable. Someone also recommended https://livelovely.com/
