    Hey guys,

    For those of you who've been there, went there for an interview or who live there:

    How easy do you think it will be there for a student who doesn't have a car (like me)?

    How good is the public transport system?

    Also, how easy it is to find housing in the area and how expensive is it?
    Thanks

    You will need a car, in my opinion.
    I live near there.

    If you live in the forest, across the health center then you dont need a car. For grocery you can take the CT transit bus which is pretty convenient. I dont have a car and neither i am planning to buy one.

    a ton of students live across the street (farmington avenue) in 'the forest apartment. i would look into getting a lease begining in june/july, depending on when uconn starts school. contact dr. t's office, i am sure they have more info

    as for grocery shopping, you should try peapod!
