Going to U of Lou? Yes, there are area's to avoid. Same for Sullivan. Do you need to be within walking distance? Male or Female? (Yes, I am somewhat chivalrous, let it go.) What is your rental budget? Will you be working while in school?

Tom, do you really know Old Louisville that well to tell the OP that there are "areas to avoid?" Why do you say that?

Judging by the OP's name, he may be working at UofL's health sciences campus? interndoc, please be more specific.

Did I say anything about Old Louisville, but since you mentioned it, I would not want my daughter living there, especially more than 5 blocks north of Hill. Would you not worry about your child?

Sullivan School of Pharmacy is located at corner of I-264 (Watterson X-way) and US 31 E (Bardstown Rd). Central Park is 5 miles away due west. You will find excellent, but somewhat premium housing all along Bardstown Road north of I-264. DSL/Broadband will run $ 35-75.00 per month.

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 safe, Central Park would get a 3 or 4 from me. Others may be a bit more comfortable and give it a 6 or 7, but above 7 would be foolish to me.

Yes, for the most part. It is the most diverse neighborhood in Louisville, with blacks whites, college students, gays, retirees, and everything in between. It is also by far the densest neighborhood in the city with over 12,000 people per square mile in parts. if you like urban, you will like it. The area is a bit lacking in retail, but there are nice corner bars and restaurants, and the architecture is nothing short of stunning. The area is known as Old Louisville. Search my posts for it.

That said, given the location of your school, I would also strongly consider and possibly lean towards renting a home on any road that crosses Bardstown or Baxter Avenue between Broadway and I-264. Simply search craigslist for these areas.

Also, given your lower end price range, you wont find the nicest place, but if you look hard enough, you can find a decent place. Between the Highlands and Old Louisville, you will find germantown, which is very safe, nice, well located, and cheaper than the Highlands (Bardstown road area).

Also, some words to the wise. If it rents for 450, usually there is something less than desirable about the unit or the location. Also, stay away from Broadway Management Company. They are slumlords. If you find something you like, run it by me and I will let you know. Just search craigslist.
