I am going to be moving to Cincinnati this June to start grad school. I am looking for a one bedroom apartment in the Hyde Park/Oakley/Mt Lookout Area that allows pets for around 600-650 a month that is hopefully within walking distance of bars/shops/restaurants. Any suggestions (I realize my budget is small but I'm hoping to find something)?

I found an apartment I liked called Tarpis Woods, but there are no reviews of it. It is managed by Uptown Rents and I have found some bad reviews about them so I am sort of nervous to rent.

Unfortunately, I can't help you with suggestions of any large complexes.

However, I do know that your goal is quite attainable. A lot of people have this impression that Hyde Park and surrounding areas are unaffordable, but there are TONS of small apartment buildings and duplexes advertising very affordable rents. Contrary to reputation, its an area with extremely diverse housing types and price points.

I'd suggest making the rounds along Observatory Ave, Erie Ave, Shaw, and maybe Delta. There are lots of smaller complexes and individual buildings which will have for rent signs out. The area around Shaw in particular seems to have some affordable rentals for a street with such a central location.

FYI, Hyde Park isn't the greatest for being within walking distance to bars that grad students would probably enjoy. Oakley Square and Mt Lookout Square are better.
