Notice: Dear all,

a friend and I are looking for a place to stay in Boston/Cambridge from June 24-30, in order to attend the LSA Institute there. We rent an apartment for the remainder of the event, but that will not be available before June 30.

If you have a place to sublet or know someone who would like to sublet a place to two Ph.D. students for that one week, please let me know.
Thank you.

J. Wohlgemuth
