  1. Boston rent is incredibly expensive, especially this year. Many of my NY friends say it’s worse than NYC. Expect to pay at least 1000/month per person if you’re lucky. Livable studios are going for 1800+. In-unit laundry brings that up to 2300-3k+International students beware of hyper-inflated prices: 3100 USD for 125 square feet is not a good deal! Also, I would not recommend living in Somerville or Jamaica Plains unless you don’t mind 1hr+ travel time just to get to campus (unless you bike – which has its own dangers).
