Hi All,
I am from Cairo, Egypt. And I going to visit Nashville, TN for a short term in order to visit Vanderbilt Univesity (VU) for ONLY three months.

I have some questions about housing in Nashville and I shall be grateful if you help me for these concerns.

I need to find a suitable condo to live in Nashville in the range of ~800$/month. Actually, when I am searching over the internet to find a suitable housing with these range. I find somthing very good and full furnished such as
- Hickory View Apartments (1 BED 1 BATH) ~500$
- Lenox Village Town Center (1 BED 1 BATH) ~800$
But They are very far from the university ( in the south in Nolensville RD). And I have NO car and I can NOT buy a car for just three months of stay. However, Is there options of renting a used old car monthly?. So I can stay there and use the car for transportation to/from VU. if yes, How much dose it and the fee of gas?
- velocity in the gulch( studio ~900$). What about it?
It is in the downtown so It may have no vacancy unit. Can I find something like this far up to 3 mile from VU so the price may be ~800$.

The second solution is unfurnished apartment like :
Chateau Apartments
Village South Apartments
Royal Arms Nashville
Bransford House
East River Place
Cumberland Retreat Apartments
They are in the rage of (1 -3) mile from the university so I can use a bicycle (if I can rent a one). but they are unfurnished so I need to buy a furnishes in a suitable prices for three months. Can I?
In summary, I need to get a good house for ONLY THREE MONTHS(safe "low crime rate" in range of ~$800, perfer familiy oriented Neighborhood or student oriented Neighborhood, suitable transportation method to be used in the city during the 3 months "such as Bicycle (rent or buy)") .
So Do you have any advice?
And the most important issue I concern about is the SAFETY. I see many people here in the forum asking about the safety of the Nashville neighborhood. I am from Cairo/Egypt where we haven't to worry about safety and I have never face a problem like this. Any advise please?

Where can I rent a bicycle and how much is it in the month?
Appreciated your help and understanding.

Default Vanderbilt should be available to help you find housing

If you are coming to study or work at Vanderbilt, they have an Office of Housing and Residential Education that should be able to help you. There is a website that they provide to help you search listings: https://apphost1a.its.vanderbilt.edu/housing/Main/

Unfortunately, you might not yet have your VUNetID (which appears to be needed to use the search function), in which case you should contact the office at 615-322-2591. Their office hours are 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Friday.
