Moving to Santa Cruz in less than a month. Help with living options.
I am an American 28 year old male. I am moving to Santa Cruz to teach for the next two years. I will have about $500 a month to rent a place. I don't feel the need to use all $500, but am willing to. I believe my school is in the Southwest part of the 4th ring and would like to be able to walk or ride my bike to school. I think I will have the option of having a roommate. I was hoping people could give me some advice about living in an apartment or a house. Some common prices for each, probably a 2 bedroom for an apartment. I have seen that some of the apartments have pools and community BBQ areas. Would this be a good spot for me to meet new people instead of living in a house? Let me know if you need any more info.
