    Are there any nice apartments in Monroe? I've been looking at some apartments in Matthews which is not too far from Wingate.

    I haven't checked out the interiors. I've been looking at the cost factors mainly as I'm still deciding between schools and Monroe seems like a more convenient location.

    If Matthews' apartments are anything like the hotel fares there, then they might be expensive. But I really don't know.:)

    try rent.com guys....there's a couple of things there.....rent runs from 500-800, mostly averaging high 500 and 600. closer you get to charlotte (southeast), it's cheaper, but busier area....if you are looking to commute that far out....rent's around 400-700.

    If you're looking at an apt in Monroe: I'm currently paying $605 for a one bedroom at Chase. My friend pays $425 or $450 for an efficiency at Nottingham.

    If you are deciding between the Matthews area vs Monroe or Wingate: I know some students who lived in Mattews and further who are now looking to move to Wingate b/c they thought the drive was too long. I don't know any students who lived in Wingate/Monroe this year who are looking to move farther away.

    Water is included, so that saves me about $50/month (based on what my friends pay elsewhere). My electricity ranges from between $50 to $75/mo. Trash is $5.

    I drove by those apts last week.

    The good part is that they are near school (close enough for me to walk to school, although most people would probably drive anyway), I think the apts are furnished.

    The bad part is that the neighborhood is kinda ghetto (for example, there was vulgar graffitti on one of the houses -- I don't mind that sort of stuff, but my friend's parents didn't like that), and it's a 2-person apt so you would have to share with another student (I think $550/person).

    how about Wingate Manor or Gateway Village? Any insights on those Gizmo? Like how the neighborhood surrounding it, stores, walking distance, etc? I noticed they are very close to the school but is it better to go ahead and get the student housing or are those apartments pretty decent? Probably a lot of students that live there huh?

    I've actually never seen Wingate Manor or Gateway Village before. It's possible that I have driven past them before while at school, but I never noticed them. I'll have to ask other students who may know more about these apts.

    You will be given your password for the WUSOP discussion board sometime in the near future; students post available housing and roommate want ads. This is a good way to get more info from other students regarding housing, etc.

    hey i was wondering if anyone is interesting in finding roommates? i was thinking it could be cheaper if we find, for instance, a 4 bedroom apt. or house to rent.
