I am going to either Santa Clara University or UC Hastings in the fall. But for one small fact: it's frickin' expensive to live there! Yes, I've checked out craigslist, and found some pretty cheap places. I pretty much am willing to live anywhere, as long as wherever I will end up is within walking distance, or easily accessible by public transportation. I'll be fine with just a single room to myself, and a bathroom to use. I could also live in the university's housing, and live off loans, if necessary. I know several people here live in the bay area, so I'm wondering if there's anyone who has any tips, looking for a place, have connections, or anything?
