Hi, I've been offered a job next summer with a few potential locations, one being Hanover, MD. My job would be at the Arundel Mills mall. I don't know much about the area so I had a few questions:

1. Would you recommend living here for a college student (compared to cities like Atlanta, Dallas, LA...)?

2. What are some affordable neighborhoods to live in, and how much are studio apartment rentals?

3. How's the public transportation? Would I need to bring my car?

Thanks for any help.

You CAN'T compare it to a city like Atlanta, Dallas, LA...
or even to Baltimore as this location is NOT in a city.

It's the heart of suburban blah.

Lol. I think you have the wrong impression of Hanover...
Comparing it to Atlanta, Dallas, and LA?
It's not even a city.
Arundel Mills is your run of the mill crowded suburban mall.

1) If you like generic suburbia, as the other poster mentioned, go for it.
2) I have no idea.
3) YES you would need a car.

It is not an area where short-term rentals for the summer are typical. I would try Craigslist for the Baltimore area or the Baltimore City Paper. Maybe you will find a student who needs a roommate for the summer. UMBC is close by, and several other colleges in the city. Or just list yourself in a housing wanted section.
