"ACTUALLY, most of the
really nice housing is never ad-
vertised, it is usually found by
word of mouth. In more cases
than not it passes from friend
to friend," said Williams.
Business in the rental alen-
cies so far has been brisk/Maize
and Blue has rented all their
units, and Off-Campus Housing
reports that about 300 people a
week come to seek rental in-
formation.
"If I were a student looking
for housing, I'd be out tight

now," said Doug Milkey, manag-
er of Campus Rentals. "The
more convenient and nicer
places do get taken real fast."
"I'VE BEEN in the position
of looking for housing during
the summer," Keller agreed,
"and what's left is the most
overpriced and worst housing

"By that time, the landlords
know you are desperate and in
no position to bargain."
The Tenants Union warns
against signing leases in which
fundamental tenant rights -
such as the right to rent strike
or the right to a jury trial -
are waived. Although these
clauses will not stand up in
court,sthey often work to the
tenant's disadvantage.

More students in recent years
have begun to consider group
living situations as an alterna-
tive to dorme or apartment liv-
ing. Students are becoming in-
terested in cooperatives and,
after a decline in the sixties,
fraternities and sororities.
Fraternities and sororities
claim to offer an atmosphere
that is more like a home, with
an emphasis on friendship and
social activities.
A ROUGH average of rates
for the 50 campus fraternities
and sororities with roughly. 20
meals per week is $1,550 for two
terms. Many are higher and
many are lower. Such a rate
often includes a fee for social
functions.

Most fraternities and sorori-
ties gain members through a
process called "rush." Students
interested in joining usually in-
troduce themselves at various
houses, at which members con-
duct tours and introduce the
house itself.
Different houses, particularly
the fraternities, employ widely
differing rush practices, from
the very casual to the strictly
scheduled.
STILL BY FAR the cheapest
way to live on campus is a co-
operative house. 520 people cur-
rently live in the 22 coops of the
Inter-Cooperative Council.
All decisions in coops are
made by the members, includ-
ing the rent, which averages
about $135 per month.

(Continued from Page 1)
cent rent subletting.
What a realtor is pleased to
call a "unit" can mean, any-'
thing from a palatial suite to
a converted broom closet. Eft
ficiencies are one-room apart-
ments with kitchen and bath-
room "built-in"; an apartment
generally separates them into
several rooms.
Apartment hunters should ask
several questions of the land-
lord or current tenant: -
- Is the lease eight or twelve
months? If twelve months, how
is subletting generally handled?
- Are utilities, gas, and tele-
phone included in monthly rent?
- Is there a suitable mainte-
nance agreement written into
the contract?
- How much is the damage
deposit (money paidto insure
that the tenant does not leave°
without paying rent)?
THERE ARE SEVERAL dis-
tinct "student ghetto" neighbor-
hoods in the campus area which
have high concentrations of ren-
tal housing.
North of Huron St. from Glen
Ave. to about Fifth St. is a dis-
trict of older frame and brick
houses, many of which are for
rent either as apartments or
as buildings. This area includes

several houses which have been
designated city historic sites, is
fairly quiet away from Division
St. and is populated largely by
graduate students. Rents are
higher close to St. Joseph's Hos-
pital.
South of campus along Forest
and Church streets is a mix of
modern apartment complexes,
frame houses and fraternities.
Southeast of this area, in a dis-
trict bordering Burns Park, are
residential dwellings and a num-
ber of older rental houses. The
streets are winding and park-
ing is difficult, but the park
provides a welcome diversion,
especially in summer.
For about five blocks east of
campus, almost every house be-
tween Geddes Rd. and S. Uni-
versity is for rent - north of
Geddes and near the new IM
building are several squat,
square apartment buildings.
And if you don't mind the
hike (or bike), beyond down-
town is the West Side. Many
west siders stay in town all
year, and there is something
of a community feeling among
its residents - they even pub-
lish a newsletter.
Although many management
companies issue lists of avail-
able units, small landlords do
not. The only way to approach
some landlords is by going door-
to-door and knocking on inter-
esting houses.
