Hello everyone. I am a college student in my twenties living in Florida and I hope soon to be accepted into and attend Vanderbilt University. I will be moving to Nashville with my significant other and a couple of pets so on-campus housing is out of the question for me. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to where in Nashville as well as surroundings areas and towns would be ideal for me to search for a place to live in relation to my budget and access to Vanderbilt. I am estimating that our monthly budget for rent would be about 1,000 and although that may only afford an apartment, a townhouse would be ideal because of the pets. If anyone has any reccomendations or ideas, I would really appreciate it. Thank you so much!

Well, you can't do too far wrong looking anywhere around the Vandy area (except stay well south of Charlotte Pike).

I would keep areas north of Charlotte Pike in mind depending on your priorities. We have lived a few blocks north of Charlotte Pike for the last two years and had no problems with crime. It's a residential area, not a bar and club scene, and a lower income neighborhood, but you can cut rental costs significantly. If you have always lived in suburbia and aren't comfortable with city living, it's not for you, but it's cheap, and it's not nearly as bad as so many make it out to be.
