Did you ever think how much it would cost you to rent your college dorm?
I got to thinking about this over the past week when I regretted that I never took up the offer to live in the Student Village my Junior year at Boston University. Take a look at the view.
BU's Student Village (StuVee) is comprised mostly of quads roughly 1100 sq ft each, 4 bed, 2 bath, and a shared kitchen. It costs $4993 a month, or $1200 a student.
Now, put your grown-up hat on. This apartment is to die for. The building boasts 24 hr security (something that was a huge pain in the ass when you had to check in your BF every evening, but think of how many of us would KILL for a doorman building), a cafe downstairs, and access to the city's most ridiculous fitness center/arena.
Here's the upriver view from the 25th floor student lounge. You bet your ass this is the place to study to be see and be seen.
You wanna see where I ended up??
In a 7x9 ft room in a very cute brownstone in South Campus.
It was off the beaten path over the Mass Pike in Brookline. Second floor of a walk up. Super cute.
But I was clueless on the decor!!!
I can only think of what I could do NOW to a dorm room.
