Need part-time housing near UCONN?

Windham, Connecticut, United States
Rates from USD $65 | Weekly

House | Private Space | House Sitting Requested
Available Dates:
From June 1, 2024 until January 1, 2026


Greetings, we are a couple of academics working at UConn (Storrs). We're looking for commuter colleagues who need a place to sleep once or twice a week on a regular basis or just from time to time during the academic year (fall & spring). We have two bedrooms downstairs (queen bed and twin XL bed), and one full bathroom with sink, toilet and shower available. Each room has a space to work and sleep. There is a private entrance to the downstairs, and guests will have the entire lower level of the house as their private space. There is a staircase and door separating the two floors, so it's really like a separate apartment. We'll have plenty of extra amenities downstairs in case you need a toothbrush, bandaid, etc. If anything is missing, just let us know. If you have any concerns or issues, we'll be upstairs for help. You can call, text, or just knock. The downstairs does not have a full kitchen or laundry machines. This is why we think it would be best suited for commuters. In the fall, we hosted a graduate student for two nights a week and he said it was perfect for his needs at that time. We're still looking for someone for the 2024-25 academic year. If you're interested in our place, feel free to reach out and come meet us and see the place. We'll be happy to give you a tour. Or, PM me for a walk-through video. Let us know if you're interested.

Please take any mail into the house.
