  • 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.
