Hi there.

I will likely be coming into Harrisburg in the next couple weeks to take part in a final interview at Harrisburg U of Science & Tech.

While I am in town, I will likely scout the area for possible housing locations/options. Would appreciate insight and recommendations. Here is a rundown of me:

-Single male in mid 40s (I have a demanding cat).

-I'd prefer to rent an apartment, condo, duplex, or even small house if it makes sense price-wise. Would like to keep rent to $1,250 or less (including utilities).

-Would prefer to not live directly downtown in the city...but rather a suburb or outskirt city.

-Would like my commute to campus to be around 30 mins or less.

-I understand crime can happen anywhere, and to a certain extent it does....but safety ranks high on my list of priorities.

-Am not opposed to living a little off the beaten path as long as I have a modest drive to somewhat of a social scene and basic necessities (restaurants, bars, grocery store, etc). Having said that, I am also fine living in a more populated area given it meets my criteria.

-Just for some background about my past, I have lived in small towns, suburbs, big cities, and spent some time abroad as well...so I've been exposed to a wide variety of settings. They all have their good points and bad points...but I think the items listed above is what I would want at this point in my life.

Thank you in advance and let me know if you need any other info to make it easier to assist in your recommendations.
