Spiraling rents are wreaking havoc on faculty college students


BERKELEY, Calif. — When she transferred to the College of California, Berkeley, JoLynn Kelly cut up a bunk mattress in a tiny loft condo — and the $2,800 a month it value to hire.

“I needed to get a mortgage only for that,” stated Kelly, now a senior who plans to grow to be a math trainer. After racking up $16,800 in debt, she lastly moved out and now commutes from her mother and father’ home, half-hour away on the uncommon events when there isn’t visitors.

“It’s insane,” she stated of the price of housing on this metropolis east of San Francisco. “Everyone seems to be both taking out loans, or another person is paying for it or they’re commuting.”
