You and your boyfriend should move neighborhood that is close to a train stop, preferably on the east-side. Look at Cabbagetown, Inman Park, Kirkwood or Candler Park. Did someone actually mention mapelton? That is a horrible idea. If you really don't care about where you live then mapelton is fine. It is an ugly little right-wing infested sprawl-burg. You can get a little place for around $650 in most of these places, even cheaper in Kirkwood.

You really don't have to look far. In fact, the Old Fourth Ward/Inman Park area are a five minute drive from campus, or 20 minutes by foot and transit. Here's a more comprehensive list of neighborhoods where you can find affordable apartments/houses to rent in the midst of vibrant activity centers that cater towards a younger crowd. Note that all are within a couple of miles of GSU's campus.
  • Old Fourth Ward
  • Inman Park
  • Little Five Points
  • Cabbagetown
  • Poncey Highland/Virginia Highland
  • Midtown
  • Castleberry Hill
  • Midtown West
  • East Atlanta

One more thing to note, a good rule of thumb is to take follow Highland Ave from Downtown to Virginia Highland. It's along this stretch of the corridor that you will find a lot of new apartment communities, shops, restaurants, and bars that I think you and your boyfriend will absolutely love. Good luck!
