I will be relocating to Kentucky in August for grad school and I need some information on apartments/condos/lofts for rent.

Although I am a student, I do not want to live in a noisy college neighborhood. I do, however, still want to live within a close proximity to UK. I hear the traffic is bad so I do not want a long commute.

I am planning a trip up there in May to apartment hunt but I want a solid list of places to visit before then. Any information would be great. My price range is anywhere from $400 to $600 for a one bedroom. I have heard the downtown area is nice. Thoughts?

I'd recommend living on the other side of Downtown along the North Broadway area near Transylvania Univ. (a small private college)

UK has so many students that basically any apartment on the South End is party central

Redding Rd. and Alumni Dr. past New Circle Rd. seem like good spots. Both are about a 10 minute drive to the K Lot. I am sure there are alot of students, but if you avoid the larger complexes, you should be okay. Just drive around the area and look for UK parking permits, UK stuff hanging in the window, and beer cans all over the place. You know, typical undergrad stuff.

We are presently living at Grand Reserve (on the corner of Tates Creek and MOW) waiting to move into a house. I have been here for 8 months and so far havent seen too many people over the age of 25 except my husband and myself. I am pretty sure that the vast majority of people that live here are grad students and people that are relocating like us. It is about 10 min from the campus and is a very nice gated community. A great pool and gym and many free services. We have a 3 bedroom two bath and it rents for about 1200 per month. If you have any one that you can share with it is a great place to live. I am not sure of the rents on a 1 bedroom but might be worth a look.
You get a garage too. Also animals are permitted

I just finished grad school at UK. My first year, I lived in an efficiency owned by Young’s Med Center Apartments. It was right across from the Law School, 659 S. Limestone (which turns into Nicholasville Rd.). It was only $360 in 2003. It’s not the nicest apartment ever, but I think it was a good value for the location. My apartment parking was closer to campus than most commuter lots. There are only 12 units and the neighbors were quiet at the time. It’s close to a hospital and a fire station, so there are a lot of sirens. Good Luck!
