Beyond these three options, there numerous other hotels in the area. Be sure to ask about access to public transportation and the university when booking
If you need less expensive accommodations, AirBnB (https://www.airbnb.com/) is your best option. The university is located on the west side and easily accessible by bus. And so, finding a place on the west side and close to bus service will make your life easier. Ask your potential AirBnB host about ease of access to the university and feel free to contact Irene (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need advice about a rental location.
Regardless of your choice, please do not wait until the last minute to book your accommodations!
