- New Haven Housing Regions
- This map shows the boundaries of where most students live in New Haven, including areas that students feel are the most secure.
- Padmapper searches Craigslist on a map, with filters. It's magic!
- A great selection, but a horribly buggy interface.
- http://offcampus.yale.edu/ (less useful)
- Includes a Yalies-only find-housing database service thing, but it costs money to post ads so it's kinda empty.

- Be sure to know whether the apartment will be furnished or not
- Gas for heating & hot water can run about $300+/month in the winter. During the summer they can still add $50-100/month.
- In East Rock, street parking is free, but downtown you will have to pay!
- For summer subletting you can find a decent apartment for $400-600 per month.
- Prices are often quoted on a per-month basis, but if you're staying for something like 2.5 months, ask the seller whether he/she can prorate the rent to a weekly or daily rate. Many subletters are flexible if you're upfront about your schedule.
- Sharing an apartment with multiple people can cut costs, but make sure this is permissible.
- East Rock is a little safer (especially at night)
- But downtown is more convenient unless you'll work on Science Hill.
- AC isn't necessary in New Haven during most summers, but temperatures do fluctuate.
- Be wary of top-floor apartments, unless the apartment has air-conditioning. Greenhouse-like effects can make life very miserable, with temperatures in attics rising above 110 F on hot days.
