Hello all,
I will be moving to Charlotte in the summer to attend graduate school at UNCC. I currently live in New Jersey so it's difficult to be able to find housing when i'm not in Charlotte. I was wondering if anyone had any specific apartment complexes that would I should look at, or any ones to avoid.
They don't need to meet all of these requirements as that would be nearly impossible, but here are just some of the things I'm looking for:

Studio or 1 bedroom
furnished
no more than $650 a month
walking distance to UNCC (not necessarily walking distance to anything else because I will have a car)
washer dryer in apt or on site
not anywhere near undergrads/partying
lively scene or young professionals

Thanks.

Look at Walden Court, Ashford Place on N. Tryon. You can walk to the free campus shuttle from there. There are fewer party scenes there, more grad students and young professionals. There are also several restaruants and a grocery store within walking distance.

I don't think those are furnished though.

walking distance to UNCC + not anywhere near undergrads/partying + lively scene or young professionals = tough bill to fill. Good luck!

I have been a grad student here at UNCC for 4+ years. Compared to other universities the party scene is so quiet in general (compared to Big 10 universities....). I have yet to see a single party make the news and nary a couch lit of fire.

My preferred location is Ashford Green. West side of campus, seems peaceful.
Ashford Green in Charlotte, NC - Charlotte, North Carolina Apartment Rentals | JMG Realty, Inc (http://www.ashfordgreenjmg.com/ - broken link)

Especially if you are in Physics, Engineering , Bioinformatics as these buildings are across the street. The grocery store is nearby as is the local par 3 golf course and the flying saucer ( a pub).

Many students in our program live here and seem content with the place. Though I do not know what they are paying.

Good luck, and if you have any questions about UNCC life, let me know.

Try the Housing Department at UNCC - it probably has graduate student housing on campus or can assist. That has been my experience....
