Although Madison College doesn’t offer student housing, there are options nearby for students who need a place to live. Getting a roommate, either a friend or a fellow student, might lower costs a bit.
Subletting means leasing an apartment from a current tenant. This is another way to save money, as they generally are willing to rent for a bit less than the property owner. This might also be a good option if you do not want to sign a full year lease, or are looking for shorter term housing. However, be careful to make sure to leave a paper trail, such as signing a sublet contract.
Madison College students are eligible for a free bus pass to help with transportation to/from classes. Pick this up on your campus!
