Gainsborough/St. Stephen St. Area

By Marc Larocque

Gainsborough and Symphony are some of the most expensive streets in town. Ranging from $3,200 to $4,200 a month for a three-room, these apartments might seem difficult to afford for some students, but Jillian Jewett, a middler nursing major who lives on St. Stephen Street, said the location makes the apartments worth it. “During the week you’re only five minutes to campus and classes, and on the weekends you’re only 10 minutes to shopping, restaurants and bars,” Jewett said. “It’s a great neighborhood with lots of college kids, and stuff going on all the time.” The ratio of student to non-student residents is about seven to 10 in this area, according to the university’s off-campus housing services office.
