Default Type of apartments available near UNM

Going through Craiglist, I have been happy to see the frequency with which "one bedroom apartments" actually end up being small, free-standing, houses. But it seems like those are mostly available a little further out from Albuquerque's center. I'm just wondering about how many apartments of that sort are located near UNM's campus.

(I'm starting to think of not only relocating, but maybe doing graduate work at UNM, since I'm interested in changing careers, but doubt that I can find anything I'd want without further education. Although I must say that the further education I'm considering isn't exactly practical, but I already compromised once and got a practical degree in a field I thought I could live with. Now it's time to either go into something extremely in demand or do graduate work in something that actually excites me. I'm leaning toward the latter.) (But that's all an aside!) (Like you couldn't tell.)

Default Advice on apartments around UNM

Hi everyone!

I'll be attending University of New Mexico in the fall; I was wondering if anyone had any advice on chosing an apartment complex. I'm a graduate student, so not many parties lol, looking for somewhere safe.

I understand that there is some crime around ALBQ and the university like anywhere else), but I'm looking to walk to UNM.

Any advice on which side is the best, complexes, and so on would really be helpful!

Best wishes everyone!!!!

I suggest searching for other threads with zillions of posts on the same subject.
The people here are cranky and won't answer the same question twice.

You'll find lots of brilliant posts - by me - in some of the following:
( I used [ UNM apartment ] as a search criteria.)

If you put "Mortimer" in the search box, you'll really get the best results.

Relocating to UNM for grad school; need housing for under $500

moving to Albuquerque UNM job - 1yr rental

UNM and Albuquerque

Safety of Univ of New Mexico Campus and Surroundings?

My College Grad Getting 1st Job in Albuquerque...i have questions about the area

I know all about it, but I can't answer the same question twice or I'll be stoned - deservedly.

What's good? Like, crunchy?
What's safe? Secret service agents required?
What's affordable? $1/yr or $10,000/day?

Hi there!

We just moved here about 6 weeks ago. I work at UNM, and we live just off Central Avenue right opposite the University (near Yale).

Friends have told me this neighborhood is a good choice (near Nob Hill) and fairly safe. So far, I have found it really convenient for work, and there are some fun shops nearby. There are also plenty of folks around, and it seems pretty safe.
The staff at Cheeba Hut (cafe with sandwiches/salads) are nice, and also there is a good coffee shop - Winning Coffee.

I think the "university named" streets just off Central would be great for someone coming to study here. During term time the area would be fairly active, since there are so many students around.

Hope this helps.
Good luck

The apartments around the intersection of Indian School Rd NE and University are quite convenient (Netherwood Village and Citadel are the two I'm aware of) -- both are within an easy 5 minute or so walk to the Q parking lot, which is serviced by a free UNM shuttle that runs during the day. Once you're on the shuttle, it's less than 10 minutes to the main part of campus. As for safety, Netherwood Village has gated access, though I don't know about Citadel. And as far as affordable goes, well, that depends on your budget. Both are under $600/month if memory serves. There's another thread on this subject that I found to be very helpful when I was looking for apartments earlier: Graduate Student moving to ABQ (apartment complexes, renters, homes)

Thanks for yalls responses. Id like to find something affordable as in 500 or less a month and safe as in not in the ghetto etc. Im sorry, excuse my ignorance I just know nothing about Albuquerque and im sure cost of living there is much higher than here (memphis). Safety is a big concern obviously and from what ive heard albuquerque is an alright city, especially compared to here. I guess the area around the campus is good? A place less than a 15 or 20 minute drive to the campus would be best. Yalls help is greatly appreciated!

ledeuxiemerenard- that thread was very helpful thanks.
