Default Possible move to Denver

Okay, I might move up to Denver next year for community college. I was just wondering what would be a cheap apartment complex to live in, somewhere near Colfax? And how is the job market up there, like minumum wage jobs? I haven't really been able to find one down here in the Springs, so thats why im maybe moving to Denver.

Dude, you don't need to live in/near 'the hood' to get a cheap apartment here.

Cheap apartments can be found just about everywhere. Pick a college, and find a cheapo nearby.

I'd love to live near downtown Denver, but I highly doubt I could get a one bedroom apartment for $400 dollars or less.

True.

If you plan on living anywhere up here (on your own), you'll need to bump that up to at least $600, and then account for utilities and any other living costs.

You can always go to downtown anytime you want, you don't have to live near there to experience it.

If that's your budget, you should probably look to renting a room in a shared housing situation. And stay off Colfax.

Default 719 to 303


I'm also looking into moving to Denver from the Springs.

I was looking into the Capital Hill or the West Colfax Near Sun Valley.

I will be graduating this summer with a associates in Architecture and I figured most of the Architects offices will be in the Downtown area. I don't have a vehicle, so I'm dependent on bikes and public transit.

I also enjoy the metal scene, so I wanted to be near the Fillmore, The Ogden, the Church, Witches Brew. Which would place Capital hill on my top list. What places do you recommend with the 500-600 budget?

Why stay off Colfax? There are many great places to live and visit along Colfax. In his desired price range he can likely find a studio in the areas between Grant and Humbolt and Colfax and 12th or so.

I can't think of anywhere better for a person in their 20's to live but as close to Colfax as possible between the Capital and Colorado Blvd.
