I'm going to William Mitchell next month and am looking for somewhere to live. Can anyone recommend good areas for me? I'm 23 and I'll have a car and a dog. I would be happy living in Minneapolis or St. Paul as long as the area is nice and I'll be close to other students/young people. I'd like to pay around $1200-$1300 per month.

Apartments near Grand Avenue within walking distance of the school. The blocks slowly get worse as you go north from Summit Ave, south of Summit are great neighborhoods. For Mpls, Uptown area.

Thank you. I found a really nice place called Victoria Park which is, I believe, as far south as Victoria street runs. Its about 2 miles from the school. Is this a good area (safe, clean, etc.)? Obviously I'd need to drive to school everyday.

Edit: It's in the West 7th neighborhood.

W 7th is ok, but I wouldn't rate it high, working class area. I looked at a few homes in that area a few years ago when I was buying a house, I chose against it. There's a somewhat newer big complex on the river next to downtown St. Paul on Shepard road. I don't know if they are all condo's and not apartments or if it'll be within your price range.

I feel like you can get within a block or two of William Mitchell for $1200.

My cousin went to William Mitchell and they lived on St. Clair and Victoria in a 3 bedroom upstairs apartment of a duplex for $1200. This was about 5 years ago.

With group projects and study groups, living near school makes life a lot easier (I didn't go there, but friends did). Try to stay close to campus.

Yeah, for that price it shouldn't be hard to find something walking distance to WH.

There's a huge apartment building (220units) going up on the corner of Snelling and Selby with under ground heated parking and it will have a Whole Foods on the mail floor,about a mile from WM. but it won't be ready until early 2016.

Since you are willing to pay a decent amount I would recommend Riverview at Upper Landing.

It's close to downtown St. Paul and walking distance from the bars on W. 7th as well as the Xcel center.

Victoria Park is nice. I agree you might want to be closer.
