Western Michigan University Off-Campus Housing Guide When to search

At some campuses across the country, as soon as students unpack their bags, they have to start looking for a new place to live. Fortunately for students in Kalamazoo, the apartment and housing search season doesn't start until a few months after school's back in session. Students who really know who they want to live with and know where they would like to live begin searching in October. From October into November student searches increase. If you're looking for a simple studio or one bedroom, you can wait, but if you want first chances at the best off-campus places in Kalamazoo, you need to begin the search process in October.



If you're not an early adopter, there's a secondary season for student rentals that kicks off in January after winter break. Consulting with your parents is a great idea when making your off-campus housing decision. Waiting until January does come with the risk of losing opportunities to some of the better deals and apartments. Waiting until January might have less large bedroom units which typically rent first.

Life in Kalamazoo, MI Where to Have Fun

Things to Do

If you're a tailgating amateur, you will have plenty of opportunities to become the grill master at Bronco football games. During the end of summer and fall semester cheering on the football team is one of the only plans you need for your weekends. Winters are long in Michigan, so finding something to do can be hard, but everyone bears the cold to funnel into Lawson Arena to cheer on the Bronco hockey team.



If you're really trying to become a Kalamazoo local, attending a show and concert in the beautiful Miller Auditorium on campus is a necessity. Shopping and eating at the South Kalamazoo Mall is another way to spend a relaxing afternoon within a short distance from campus. At the Den Party Store, you must purchase at least one Den Pop to receive the full Bronco experience. Lastly, if you have time with your busy class schedule, there are over 350 Registered Student Organizations for any interests that you could ever have.

Dining

After a Bronco football game, when your school pride's been poured out and you're ready to re-fuel, a popular pub across from the stadium called Waldo's has cheap drink specials. If your night does not end with Waldo's, Insomnia Cookies or Pita Pit can fill your cravings until 3 A.M. Listed are some bars and restaurants that you should take note of:



  • Big Deals Sports Bar
  • University Roadhouse
  • Gallagher's Eatery
  • Rugger's Up & Under

Outdoors

Biking or running the 17-mile-long Kalamazoo River Valley Trail is a great excuse to spend time outdoors. Only a short drive away from Western Michigan's campus is Lake Michigan. Lake Michigan is a great place to swim and relax on the beach while enjoying the shoreline scenery.



The winters can be long in Michigan limiting many outdoor activities. A highlight to enjoy the snow is skiing or snowboarding. Two popular hills for students close to campus is Timber Ridge and Bittersweet Ski Resort.
