  • Available December 2016.  One fully furnished bedroom in a townhouse apartment in East Bloomington.  The apartment is a two bedroom townhouse in Knightridge Apartments. It has 1 1/2 baths, with a kitchen and living area downstairs.  The complex has a pool and is located about two miles east of campus. It is the last stop for the 6 bus, which runs every 20 minutes during the school year. The apartment has its own washer and dryer (which can be hard to come by in this town), a patio frequented by squirrels, chipmunks, and birds (giving the allusion of being among nature), a sound system, a movie projector for the occasional movie night, and one personable cat.  I am a 35 year old male doctoral student in Sociology with an interest in aesthetics and cultural tastes.  I love to bake and enjoy cooking elaborate meals. As such, the kitchen stays pretty well stocked both with ingredients and with utensils and appliances.  I have one cat who mostly just lays around but nevertheless makes for good company. I tend to clean as a means of procrastination so the downstairs stays pretty tidy. I also have a car and make frequent trips to the grocery store, so if you don't have a car or would like to carpool that could easily be arranged.  I am asking for $400 a month flat rate, including water, electricity, and internet.  I am open to international students, as well as people of any gender, race, or sexual orientation.

    Rent: $400/mo., includes utilities and internet.

  • Large sunny single-family home for rent from mid-October 2017 to end-of-June 2018.  An earlier start date to coincide with the beginning of the fall semester is negotiable. The living area is on three levels. Main level with kitchen, dining room, TV room, living room, bedroom, bathroom. Upper level with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and one study. Lower level with recreational room, exercise room, study and bathroom.  There is a large swimming pool (with automatic cover) that can be opened in early May (weather allowing) and an outdoor hot tub. If you opt to open the pool we will give you detailed instructions on how to care for it.  In the living room there is a grand piano (Steinway O-180) and a hi-fi system. There is a three car garage and we have two cars (Prius and Jeep) which we plan to leave in the driveway, leaving two useable garages. Use of the cars is negotiable.  In the winter the tenants have to clear the sidewalk in case of snow. Leaf removal will be arranged by us. In the spring the tenants should mow the lawn at least every two weeks (takes about an hour); a local company will start up and set the irrigation system. We have two very personable outdoor/indoor cats that we wish the tenant to take care of (feed once a day, let the cats in at least for the night). If this is a problem, we will try to re-home the cats. The neighborhood is Hyde Park and is about 2 miles from the main IU campus; we have a couple of bicycles that the tenant can use. The house is situated in a non-thru street with little traffic. There are nearby parks one of which is within walking distance.
