We recommend that you start looking for housing even before you arrive in the U.S. You will need time to figure out what will work best for you. It is best to not wait until the last minute to find an apartment. Below are some suggestions for housing that we know through connections.
There are several student-housing communities that provide residences at relatively low prices. CSCC http://cscc.umn.edu/ is a University of MN housing community serving student-families, married couples, domestic partners, single graduate students, and post doctorates. CTC http://www.umnctc.org/ is for all students and post-docs. Riverton community http://www.riverton.org/ is for all undergraduates and graduates.
