A new housing development on University Avenue, Jefferson at Berry, offers affordable student housing in a residence hall-like setting. Per student-cost is $615 to $750 per bedroom. Jeff Crump (Housing Studies) said affordable housing is usually calculated as 30 percent of the total average income in a given region. "Student incomes are not concrete, Crump said, so the studies depend on a community's average income. 'The trick is that it depends on the median you use,' he said."
