I will be moving to Louisville to attend U of L as a grad student in theatre. I am a 29 year old male.

I would like to live in an area that is populated by artists or kind of bohemian in atmosphere with coffee houses, small pubs, bookstores and such (and as low crime as possible) within $400 to 550 dollars a month and fairly close to campus and/or easily accessible by bus; efficiency or one bedroom is fine. I like to go out and have fun, but nothing real excessive. so I don't want any area that is real boring and quiet but not real wild either. Somewhere in between.

I have heard that the Highlands would be a nice area for artists and bohemian types but I don't really know of any other areas.

Also, I will not have a car in Louisville. What are the bus lines like? do they operate late at night, every day, etc.?

Any feedback or referral to old posts that address this would be greatly appreciated.

Definetly the Highlands or UL campus. Everything is close by in Highlands. Not sure about how the busses run, but I know you can usually find a pretty cheap apartment in one of the beautiful old homes. Good luck!

Without a car I'd recommend Old Louisville. Belknap Campus to Bardstown Road is 3 miles down Eastern Parkway, that would be a decent bus ride. OL has a bohemian vibe to it, the Highlands is just an exceptionally bohemian area, maybe the best one in any mid sized American city.
