Law Student Roommate Finder

This page has been created for current and admitted KU School of Law students to find housing and roommates in the Lawrence area. If you are a current or incoming law student searching for housing and/or a roommate, please browse the listings below for options.

Submit a listing

Some students like living with other law students, but others prefer living with people not affiliated with the law school. The only recommendation we can make is to find a stable, non-worrisome living situation. The first year of law school can be busy and stressful; make your living environment as comfortable as possible.

Listing Type: Roommate
Seeking: Male/female law student
Address of property: 1336 Vermont, Apt D
Rent (per month): 300
Description of housing: Hello, my roommate is moving out next semester, so I am beginning the search for a new one. My place is a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment in a renovated house. It is a quick walk to Mass. St. (good for walking to and from the bars and coffee shops) and a 20-25 minute walk to Green Hall. I make the walk to and from class every day and don't mind at all. You can always get a parking pass if you hate walking, though. The apartment has a small kitchen (the only downside), a dining/studying room, a living room, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms. Your room would have a bathroom in it. It is a pretty big room—enough space for a bed, desk, dresser, etc. The closet is pretty small, but enough space for a hanging closet or the kind of detached closet you get at IKEA. Personally, I love the place. The landlords are super nice. It is close enough to campus, super close to downtown, and the street is mostly quiet. No pets, sadly. If you want pictures, email me. Or come by and check it out. $300 per person covers all utilities. The only thing left to pay is Internet  (and cable if you want it).

Listing Type: Roommate
Seeking: Male/female law student
Address of property: Negotiable
Rent (per month): Negotiable
Description of housing: I'm a 22-year-old female student  joining the KU Law class of 2018. I'd like to find a roommate or two in law/other grad school to live with, starting in August 2015. Pricing is negotiable, and I don't have a male/female preference. Ideally I'd like to find a place close to campus with safe parking and a decent kitchen, since I'm a total foodie and love to cook. Roomie bonus perk. Graduated this past May with an English degree and am taking a year off to work and save up some cash before school starts. I love running and yoga and being active, and typically I like to get up early and keep myself I don't anticipate being home terribly often, though I'd love to hang out with ya! I'm a very neat, organized, type-A person, but totally open-minded and can appreciate a good craft beer and live music. If you are in a similar situation, I'd love to chat. I am sorta clueless as to how Lawrence apartment hunting works so maybe we can figure it out together. Thanks a bunch!

Listing Type: Sublease
Seeking: Male/female law student
Address of property: 1942 Stewart Ave
Rent (per month): $670
Description of housing: 1BR/1BA within walking distance of the law school and Allen Fieldhouse. Basic cable is included, all other utilities are not included. There is an outdoor pool and a fitness center. Generally a lot of law students live there since it is so close to the law school. It is in a quiet, safe neighborhood. Dishwasher, garbage disposal, and washer/dryer included. Also, I am graduating and moving out permanently, so there is a possibility that whoever subleases will be able to continue renting the same apartment through the school year. This would save a ton of time and trouble in not moving again once school starts.
