Roommates, Shared housing, Rental resourcesEECS doesn't have a roommate matching service for our incoming students, but we can point you to some resources to assist you in finding a roommate for off-campus living.
For incoming students: Around June of every year the Assistant Dean for Graduate Studies in McCormick, Bruce Lindvall, sends an email introducing all incoming graduate students so they can reach out to each other to locate potential roommates. If you are an incoming student you will have this list. If you don't, we can forward it to you (contact the EECS Graduate Office), but please note that if you are not an incoming student, we will not send the list.
You could also search on your own using these services:
The Bulletin Board outside the EECS Grad Office, Tech L351. This bulletin board is set aside for posting fliers to assist in finding roommates or housing. You'll have to go there in person to look at it -- the grad office staff can't check it for you
