It's definitely closer than Bywater.
Pauger looks to be at least two miles from the hospital. The hospital, I believe, is within the limits of the Mid-City historic district.

Oh Geez...if you want to get technical...

The existing LSU hospital is not in the official Mid City Neighborhood which ends at Broad St. It's not in the Mid City Historic District which ends at Tulane between Galvez and Claiborne. However, it is in Planning District 4, which is referred to the Mid City District. So yes and no.

The 1900 block of Pauger St is exactly 1.5 miles away from Tulane and S. Roman, which is the edge of the hospital complex. The intersection of Canal and Carrollton is exactly 1.6 miles away from the same spot. So, if you lived near Carrollton or on the other side of it, you would be further away.

We're splitting hairs here. The point is that Mid City and Bywater are arguably safer options with similar rents compared with that part of the 7th Ward.

I just graduated from LSUHSC New Orleans. Most people I know who weren't already living here, didn't have family or friends to stay with, or weren't residing in school housing had apartments in Metairie because it was more affordable and centrally located to clinical facilities and school itself. Keep in mind that if you're a nursing student, it's highly likely that you'll never be assigned a single rotation at LSU Interim. All of my clinical rotations except for 1 were at Ochsner facilities all over the city, including the Northshore.

If you want to live in the city, look in Mid City or Uptown. Contact your advisor or someone in school administration to see what their suggestions are for housing and/or if they know someone who is interested in rooming. They're used to it because campus housing can't accommodate even a quarter of the current student population.

Thanks for everyones help!
I would prefer to be in mid city and did find some places. Renting a place is proving difficult living 11 hours away and not being able to take time away from work. Any thoughts about these addresses?

3032 Orleans Ave
&
4143 Canal

If they're anything close in price, definitely go with Canal.

I second that.

That area on Orleans is certainly not the nicest part of town, although it is also far from the worst. If you head up a few blocks (towards Carrollton), it turns into a very nice area within a matter of literally three or four blocks. Again, though, that area itself isn't the best.

That area of Canal would be fine.
