Hello,

I am looking to move close to Emory University for a position. Could you tell me what apartments and area to live would be best..

1. Budget=600-800 a month
2. House/Condo/Townhome=apartment safe area
3. Employment Status=driving to Emory or train
4. Children=no children and single
5. Suburban or Urban lifestyle=a mix of both
6. Easy access to public transit=important in case of any car issues
7. Preferable demographics of desired neighborhood=diversity

Thank you!

Sorry for the public reply, but I've run out of "direct messages" for the day apparently. Not sure what that's all about. Anyway, if you will email me at the address I sent you I'd be more than happy to tell you more. Thanks!!

The neighborhoods that surround the Emory campus are:

Druid Hills
North Druid Hills
Decatur
North Decatur
Virginia-Highland
Morningside
Candler Park

Safety is not really an issue in any of these neighborhoods, but none of them IMO are particularly diverse; of any of them, I would say North Druid Hills and Candler Park have the most diversity.
What are you looking for in an apartment? Candler Park, Virginia-Highland, Druid Hills and Decatur will offer you mostly older, early 20th century apartment buildings; North Decatur and North Druid Hills contain newer, more 'amenity-oriented' apartment complexes. I think your budget is workable, but let us know what you have in mind as far as the type and style of housing that you desire.

I am definitely looking for amenity-oriented, so probably newer but I am not ruling out older if I don't have to make calls for repairs. Also looking for the 30 something and older crowd for less noise. Looking for either a 1 or 2 bedroom to start out. Diversity is a plus!

I would focus on the North Druid Hills area. Nice, safe, with a lot of housing options...and very accessible to the city center.
Here are some complexes that are popular with Emory students and personnel.
