Hi, I am starting my studies at SU in the fall, and I had a couple of questions. I searched around the web site, hopefully these questions have not been asked before

1. As I understand, car travel is easy in and around Syracuse. How important is it to live within walking distance to SU, especially in the winter? Would I regret it in January if my apartment is 5 miles away?
2. What is the parking situation around SU, can one find a parking spot easily?
3. I looked around the web for information regarding apartment complexes. Many have very poor reviews, even though on this web site they were recommended. Now, I know that most people who are happy with their apartments would not post online comments, so these ratings might be biased.. But are there any complexes or landlords that you might advise against?

BTW: I am married, my wife will not be living with me full time, and I am looking for a 1-bedroom apartment that would be clean, relatively soundproof, and safe. Everything else is negotiable.

Thank you in advance, all comments welcome!

1. you should be fine if you get an apartment 5 miles away. For the most part, the roads are cleared in a timely manner during the winter months.

2. Parking can be a pain, but i suggest that you contact the Parking Services at SU: Parking Website Many people park at the Manley lots and take the shuttle to campus.

3. There are some and you can tell once you see them.

Here are some guides you can look at: Syracuse Apartment Rentals | Syracuse NY Apartment Finder
