That is a bit of a tall order, but a quick craigslist search pulled up a few in Roger's Park and Edgewater (both on the northside) and a few elsewhere in the city. Before you jump on them, look them over carefully, I'd admittedly be a bit wary of a $500 studio and would want to make sure that the building is okay before I committed to a lease. Sometimes if places appear to be 'too good to be true' they are, as I once painfully learned when I rented a one bedroom apartment in Roger's Park 15 years ago (which turned out to be the longest 8 months of my life trying to get out of a bug and rodent infested apartment with a collapsing ceiling in the closet, windows that wouldn't shut, and neighbors whose idea of how to spend a Friday night was shooting at each other in the street). Roger's Park has gotten a bit better since then, but I know there are still apartments like that around waiting for someone who is either desperate or naive enough to rent them like I was (being 19 with little money is a dangerous combination of desperation and naivety).
