We found our own place rather than going with my husband's school-provided housing. We've been happy with this, but there's no air conditioner in the apartment, and that will be a problem soon. Since we bought all our other furniture (including washer/dryer and fridge), is it out of line to ask (politely of course) if his school might be able to provide a new or used air conditioner? The tall ones (which it seems like we'll need for a two-person apartment) can be quite pricey.
If the school can't or won't provide an air conditioner, where are good places to look for decently priced ones? Homeplus? Hi-Mart? Are air conditioners something that can be bought used?
