With Indiana University a three-minute drive from your front door, you don’t have to worry about being late for lectures when you live at Railway Manors. In summer, you can wake up a few minutes earlier and make the 17-minute walk to class instead, and use the bus stop down the road to get around town on weekends. When you need a change of scene, get your friends together for a camping trip to Monroe Lake, where you can spend an idyllic few days hiking, fishing and canoeing on the largest lake in the state.
After class, stop in at Convenient Food Mart to pick up a few essentials on your way home. Step into your spacious air-conditioned apartment, then set your groceries down on the counter in the kitchen. Take a few minutes to store everything away in the fridge, then fix yourself a snack and kick back on the living area couch. Use the free internet to stream your favourite series or get a head start on your assignments, then don your sneakers for a visit to nearby Rev. Ernest D Butler Park.
After perfecting your dunking skills on the park’s public basketball courts, or letting off steam with a scenic jog, come home for a shower in your private bathroom. With a washer dryer and a dishwasher included, keeping things shipshape is easy at Railway Manors – and if your appliances give you problems, the on-site maintenance team is just a quick call away. Later, head downtown to meet your friends for dinner – try Samira Restaurant for Afghan fare, or Cajun-Creole hotspot Uptown Café.
