I'll echo Portland as well but its not that cheap. Olympia, WA might work.

Those of you suggesting Portland probably never tried to live there because it does not have a below average COL. Here's a link to a website that gives a list of cities from most to least expensive.

FWIW, Portland isn't any more or less accepting of eccentric or odd people than most places but if you do fall into that category and you can afford to live there, go for it because you probably will be okay and the surrounding areas are really beautiful.

I asked for explanation why. Portland isn't cheap either, but it's medium-tier cost enough that I'll let it slide

I should've also added "and below average crime," but thanks anyway.

It may depend on the size of the college town or even its location. Ann Arbor MI comes to mind in that regard.
