I am moving from Lawrence, KS to go to school at the University of Wyoming in the fall of 2007. I have been searching the internet (newspapers, etc.) looking for rental property for an apartment. I know there probably isn't a lot available right now since it is the middle of the school year, but I was curious if anybody knew of particular Rental/Property Management businesses that usually have a lot of options to choose from, at an affordable rate. I realize that the cost of rent has gone up in the past few years, but again, I'm just a lousy old college student that isn't too wealthy .

I also have another question (or two) about the University itself, I suppose. I am moving there with my twin brother and we were curious about in-state residency (for tuition costs) and how to go about that. Our plan, for now, is to move there (if possible) at the beginning of the summer and work all summer and hopefully be able to attain "in-state" status. I have researched it a lot on the school's website, and have read through the 'regulations' and what-not. I guess my question is this: Does anyone know if the University is difficult to approve a student for in-state residency?

Thank you for your help, I look forward to hearing back from all of you!

I'm not sure about the residency. Our daughter goes there but of course is a resident. Call the university and ask. I know that for hunting you have to be here for one year.

You can also ask the U about rentals. If you call the admissions office they can either help you or send you to someone who can.

I hope you like UW. Our daughter is an RA this year. She is in pre-pharmacy and absolutely loves Laramie and the school

Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it. I just figured I would ask about the residency because there a bunch of stipulations that are involved with it, and didn't know if anybody might know!

As far as the 'recreation' part of Laramie, exactly how far away are running/hiking/biking trails. I know it is surrounded by several Nat'l Parks/Forests, but are there any actually in Laramie?

What about biking? Is it a "biker friendly" place? (That's kind of a random question, sorry ) Is everything pretty close? Just thought I would check. Thanks a lot for the help!

I would check with the admissions office of UW about residency.

The "recreation" part of Laramie - about 1/2 hour from town. No National Forest in Laramie.

Laramie is a very "bike friendly" town - according to my daughter who goes to UW. Laramie is not a very large town so everything in town is fairly close. In general - nothing in WY is very close.
