Living in Boone


Housing can be difficult to find in Boone, and Appalachian State does not currently offer any on-campus graduate student housing. Here are some ways graduates have found housing in the past:

  • Craigslist: This can be an option, but be careful and make sure to see the housing and the potential landlord in person to make a safe, informed decision.
  • Facebook- Students often post housing options and seek roommates through the GSGA Facebook page and the AppState Classifieds Facebook page.
  • Rental Companies in Boone: These pages list includes many of the local companies in Boone.


  • It is a good idea to look early, housing goes fast!
  • If you are not planning on buying a parking pass, check out the Appalcart routes near your housing options. Appalcart is completely free!
  • Consider winter accessibility when you are looking at places. Snow and ice can be concerns for 2-3 months of the school year.
