Got a question, how much should affordable college housing, or what I am really looking for is a single apartment, run around in Morgantown? I've been browsing around for some time, and see lots of apartments ranging from $500-800 but these seem to be the "directly off campus" types.

I don't want to be stationed exactly within 10 minute's walking distance, up to 30-60mins of biking is fine with me.

I read there are 1 BR homes? How much should rent for these cost for a college student?
(I am from the west, we don't have such things around here!)

Can I get by Morgantown decently year round with a bicycle for transportation in general errands? Or would I be looked as a fool to accomplish such a feat?

A bicycle is very doable in Morgantown most of the year, but the winters tend to be cold and snow is not uncommon. It would be very difficult then.
If you are a college student the public transportation in Morgantown is very good, and free for you to use. You can live away from campus but in the area and ride the bus/PRT to class or just about anywhere else with little difficulty.
