Q: What websites can I use to find off-campus housing?
A: Finding housing before beginning a post-doc at UCD can be time consuming.
To save time, post-docs in our department use several avenues to find roommates or housing. One popular website is craigslist (http://sacramento.craigslist.org). Craigslist is a classifieds website that advertises different housing options. Another popular source is the weekly Services for International Students and Scholars (SISS) Bulletin emailed to the bulletin subscribers every Friday afternoon.

Q: What are online resources I can use to furnish my room/home?
A: Websites commonly used to furnish your room/home include Craigslist-Sacramento (http://sacramento.craigslist.org/) and Davis Freecycle Yahoo Group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DavisFreecycle).
