Yeah, I got that. But the term implies either:

A.) Demarcated areas in Nazi-occupied Poland where Jews were forced to live.

So again, WHY would you want to live in something called a 'student ghetto'?

No, you don't get it.

$800 is tough for a whole house anywhere close to the city. You can get a decent 1br or maybe 2 br apartment for that much if you go to the suburbs.

It sounds like that's what I'm going to need to do. Could you tell me what the suburbs are, and which ones to avoid?

Englewood and Littleton would probably be your best bets locationwise, but pickings are slim at you price point. If you go up to $1000 it will probably open more.

You posted the above in the cat forum a few weeks ago. Are you planning to bring all 5 of your cats with you? That will make the apartment search even more difficult. (In your opening post you mentioned 3 cats - hard enough.)

The E, F, and H Light Rail lines all stop very conveniently at the University station; if you are a student or employee you can get a great Eco Pass too. Take a look at a map of those lines, and expand your search area along those areas. Doing that should help you find something that fits your room and budget requirements; because the University neighborhood, as others have mentioned, can be quite pricey. There is no 'student ghetto' like in a lot of college towns, Denver is just a mid sized city with a couple Universities here. Good luck and enjoy Denver.

Good decision. You may consider the area around the Denver Tech Center along I-25. In addition to Denver, the suburbs in this area are Centennial, Greenwood Village, and Cherry Hills Village. There are some $800 a month apartments near I-25 and Hampden Ave which is south Denver, the Apartments are near the Southmoor light rail station and only a 10 minute ride to DU. They all seem like nice ones too. Pet deposits apply, but pets are welcome at most apartments in Denver.

Here are some of the apartments in this area. I used to work in this area and it's nice.

Wow! $800 a month in the tech center for 2 BR?

I was thinking further east on Evans has some places. Used to work in that area. Wouldn't define it as "ghetto" more like dumpy and cheap. That would be more realistic. Had a pan-handler come up to me in that area, and some dude holding a sign "need money for vodka" - at least he was honest.

The DTC is expensive but nice, :if: you can find something under 1K there go for it. Yes, Hampden is a good area, even Yale might have some places near the rail that would be affordable.
