I'll be heading out there in several months to find an apartment / housing. I'm a 26 year old male. Based on the research I've on this forum, the areas I'd like to check out are:

Capitol Hill, Lodo, Highlands, City Park, Cheesman, Washington Park

My rent budget is $500. Am I pretty much SOL on a studio in one of these areas for that much? Any other areas nearby that MIGHT work with that figure? Shared housing perhaps?

I'd just like to get an idea at what I'll be seeing when I get there. Thanks.

For $500 per month. You should easily be able to find a Studio in Cap Hill. Search craigslist, westword and denver post. For $550 per month I rented a top/attic floor 1 bedroom 600sqft apt in Cap Hill which included all utilities plus cable TV, back in 2004. I don't think things have change all that much since then.

Also consider the Baker neighborhood.

For 500 you can easily find a studio in Cap Hill, Cheesman Park, City Park.

Housing in the Highlands tends to be more houses than apartments. If you're willing to room with someone, 500 will get you into that area.

They might exist, but you'd have to be lucky to find a studio in LODO or Washington Park for 500.

yup you should focus on Cap Hill, lots of for rent signs all over right now. I've seen dumpy studios on 14th for as low as $375. Plus in Cap Hill you are very close to Cheeseman and not really far at all from Wash Park and Lodo.
