How to Find a Room Near You for College Students

The search for a home is no longer as easy as it used to be, according to a new survey by Boston Homestay that reveals the top destinations for college and graduate students looking to live close to family.

The Boston Globe surveyed 2,500 households for its 2015 “College Life” survey, which surveyed more than 2,000 people between 18 and 30 years old.

The survey revealed that in 2016, about a third of respondents who had recently graduated from college had been living with roommates or other close family members for the past six months.

The top three destinations were Boston, San Francisco and New York City, according the survey.

The top cities were home to nearly two-thirds of those surveyed who had been to college, the survey found.

Boston is the top choice for students looking for a place to live near family, with nearly three-quarters of respondents living in the city.

San Francisco was second with more than a quarter of respondents in the Bay Area.

New York was third with more people living in New York than in other areas of the country, the Globe reported.

While living with relatives is common, the Boston Globe survey also found that most people who had not yet graduated were considering a move to the city, and most students are now living there.

A majority of those who had never attended college said they were considering it.

The survey also showed that most students who were planning to attend college did not have roommates in mind, but some were considering them.

Students who were considering going to college in the future said they would probably live with their parents or in a dorm, while those planning to study overseas said they might choose to live with roommators.

The Globe also reported that more than half of students who had completed high school in the past year said they had a close family member who was also attending college.

The students who said they planned to attend a college in 2018 were also more likely to have close family, including spouses and children.

Only about one-third of students said they knew their close family’s age or age at graduation, while 40 percent said they didn’t know.
