Although I declined SHU, I am from CT and thought I would give those of you not from the tri-state area a heads up- Stamford is crazy expensive to live in! (Like $1800+ for a 1B,1B!) You will be hard pressed to find anything cheap. Definitely find roommates to share a rental! Traffic is a nightmare! It took me 65 minutes to go 15 miles from Stamford to rt 8! The Merrit is awful if you are on during peak travel times (if you are heading south before 6am you should be good) It can take 2 hours to go the 40 miles from the main campus in Fairfield to Tandent center in Stamford if the pkwy is backed up  and there are no good alternate routes. I'm not sure about public transport in Stamford (we've take metro north into the city which was fine) there are buses. I would not advise getting a place too far from Tandent center- and definitely pay for the parking- it would be super stressful to have an exam and not be able to find a free on the street spot! Good luck to you guys! 

Thanks all though I have a family and trying to see which places other people are looking to live that are cheaper.

Ha Ha! There is nothing cheap in the gold coast of CT!! I would see if you can get in touch with current students and see where they lived and how that worked out for them. If you have school aged kids keep in mind the public schools vary tremendously- Trumbull, New Cannan, Greenwich, Ridgefield are excellent, others not so much (there are some great private schools). You could probably find lower rentals north and east of Stamford but you will pay in commute time (anything in Westchester will be $$$$). Good luck!
