Looking for a rental in C-U
There are several resources that can help you find a place in our fine city. We have two newspapers: the News Gazette and the Daily Illini (University of Illinois student paper). They both have print and online editions with ads for apartments and houses.
My favorite place to advertise is Craigslist because the ads are not limited in length; there’s no need to abbreviate; and there are pictures!! So you can really get a lot of information. But don’t disregard the ads without pictures because some of the smaller landlords may not have pictures.
Finally, you can drive through the areas you like and look for signs. Just remember that not all properties with units available, or houses, for that matter, have a sign. I rarely use signs for a variety of reasons.
