I will be a new doctoral student this fall. I am looking for an apartment or studio within walking distance to UMBC since I do not have a car. I have read about Kendale, Westland, Oaklee, and other apartments. I live out of state and would like any information that you can share or recommendations of where to live. Also, if you know of anyone that is looking to rent their place please let me know. I have also found out about the office of off-campus housing and the listing of places along the UMBC bus line. I would appreciate any specific places that you would recommend for July or August. I am looking for something budget but also in a safer area to walk. Thanks.
