Im going to be attending the University of Utah in January, and need some info on living arrangements there.

Any reccomendations are appreciated. I've only been to Slc a couple of times and need to find a place to live that is relatively close to campus.

hmmm, are you looking to rent or buy? If you're looking at renting, rentalfinders.biz is fairly good, otherwise I would just say check out some of the local newspapers classifieds sections (deseretnews.com and sltrib.com) Trying to find an apartment is really hit or miss, I've found that the best thing to do is just go look at a whole bunch of them and just drive around looking for signs too. It'll be a little harder to find a place in January because there's not as many people that leave between fall and spring semester, so you might want to get into something for like 6 months, and then search out something new next summer cause there will be more options. Good luck with it, you'll love it here!

I think that sounds like a good plan. School ends about that time, so if any apartments are going to be for rent, that's the time that they'll be available. It might be a good idea to ask the person that's doing your orientation also, they usually know of some good places besides the dorms. There's no shortage of apartments, but it does take some time to find the right one, that's for sure. Are you planning on getting your own place, or do you know some people that you want to live with?

My .02 would be Snowbird or Brighton then in that case. I just love the Cottonwood canyon resorts. And I would say Alta or Solitude if you were a skier. Hopefully it'll be a good year!!
