Hi everyone,

For those of you who don't know, I will be moving to Columbia towards
the end of this Summer to begin a masters degree in music at Mizzou.
I am currently in the process of looking for housing.

I have done some research into living on campus, but I'm not sold yet,
and there is a good chance I would be too late to get an apartment
there.  I was amazed at all the options for living off campus.  This
is the first time I've ever looked into housing on my own, and I want
to find a place that I will like.

I would like somewhere with easy access to campus.  I also have a lot
of technology, including a braille embossor, that I will need to set
up.  My guide dog will be with me as well.  I would love somewhere
with a dishwasher and laundry in the building.  (If I lived in the on
campus apartments, I would not have a dishwasher. :()

If any of you have any ideas, advice, or could point me to someone who
could help, I would much appreciate it.  I haven't nailed down an
exact price range because I wanted to see what might be available.
Thank you all for any possible suggestions.
