	XA (!), 

	I'm not advocating for Columbia housing, I'm merely speaking
from my experience with them. I think it's an option worth looking into
considering that's the first option for most Columbia students. It's not
cheap but it is reasonable since there are a number of advantages that
come with it. 

	In any case, Valon, again good luck and hope you find something
soon! Let me know once you're settled. We can go out for a coffee or
something - it's always fun to meet fellow Albanians!

		University housing is NEVER cheap. Even their off-campus
alternatives are not cheap (unless you can afford to pay 800+ to share).
On the other hand, International House at Columbia sucks! You pay 500 or
600 for a hole, literally a hole without even a private bathroom or
kitchen-just enough space for a bed. Those rooms are uninhabitable and
without Air conditioning (from what I've seen), and you can hardly even
study there.  I would merely suggest Valon to find housing in the Bronx,
specifically in the Riverdale Area, where he can find something both
affordable and spacious and comfortable. If Valon is interested, I can
look up some phone numbers of Albanians who are in the real estate
business in the Bronx.

		Tung Valon,

		I would suggest contacting Columbia housing as that's
one of the best options around here. The application deadline is
probably long due but it's still worth trying. They usually give housing
priority to international students so emphasise that in your
correspondence with them ( i.e. if you are an international student).
You can find their info on the Columbia website. 


		Another option is the International House located on
123rd st and Riverside Drive. The rent is reasonable and it's not too
far from the campus. Friends of mine who live there seem to like it.
Hope this information helps! 


		Good luck with you search!
