Hi guys,

I've accepted a faculty position at LSU and moving to Baton Rouge with my fiance. We are looking to rent for the first year and am looking for good neighborhoods to live in. Being close to LSU is a plus but not necessary if there aren't any nice young professional places near it other than student apartments. Monthly rent of up to $2000 is fine. Also do you know if there are any high rises in Baton Rouge?

You can afford any neighborhood for that price. I'd look downtown, Garden District, Beauregard Town, Spanish Town, Mid-City South, Capital Heights, and Southdowns.

Any highrise type of living would be downtown or Perkins Rowe condos.

There's isn't much at all when it comes to high rise residences in Baton Rouge, but you will easily find a nice place anywhere in town for $2,000/month.

Working at LSU, I'd look for a place in the Garden District, Southdowns, or downtown (north of Government Street). Living close to work is a major plus in Baton Rouge, as many of us have daily commuting nightmares.
