"Great place for students who study in Monterey Institute"

Van Buren St is popular with MIIS students, it is lively during the day due to many students attending classes in Monterey Institute of International Studies. Sometimes it gets loud especially in the weekends when students organize parties and barbeques. It is close to the main street and major bars and restaurants as well as a nice little corner shop called Troia’s Market where you can buy just about anything you need.

"Nice place to live while studying at MIIS"

Van Buren is a pretty cool street. It has some nice houses, is in very close proximity to most of the MIIS campus and not too far from downtown or Del Monte Beach. The rent tends to be pretty expensive for not the best deal, but I like my house. How cool is this street? It depends how cool you make it. Overall I recommend trying it out if you get a chance. The greenery is great. It is not too loud, but there is enough traffic to avoid any crime here. We have accidentally left our door wide open on a few occasions and never had anything stolen. The new Trader Joe's and the farmer's market on Tuesday also mean that groceries are not a problem. Good luck.
