I am from California and have been looking for rooms from craigslist, but it doesn't seem to be many rooms available at this time. I also looked at the UW off campus housing website Off-Campus Housing Affairs but unfortunately we do not have access to the listings. It is frustrating and ridiculous that postbacc result will come out during May for the programs starting in June. How do they expect the out of state students to find housing only a month before the school starts? If I understand right, we also have some requirements to complete like immunizations and HIPPA by April 20th or so.
Anyway, sparkyy, assuming I will be accepted by UW postbacc, I have a plan to visit Seattle some time in late March of early April to find my room hoping to be able to move in early June.
