Hello all,

I'll be attending grad school at Loyola in New Orleans this August. I am looking to rent as soon as I find a place I feel comfortable living in. As of now, I'm looking around the Up-Town area, but am open to suggestions. I have a few questions and would appreciate any advice.

1) Parking is very limited (from what I understand) around campus, so finding a place within walking distance or short bike ride would be preferable. Any advice about taking the street car (since Loyola is along St. Charles)?

2) How pet friendly is New Orleans? I have two larger dogs. Is it reasonable to find a small backyard Up-Town?

3) I understand that New Orleans (especially Up-Town) can change from block to block, assuming I live somewhere uptown, any spots I should steer toward or away from?

4) I'm a 22 year old Law student and am pretty easy going. I wouldn't mind the fact that the paint on the porch is peeling or that the floors creek... I'm expecting these things in an older home-- and I think it's kind of neat.

--Overall, I'd like a 2 bd/1 or 2 bath near Loyola/Tulane. How much should I expect to pay? Utilities?

If you have any insider's tips on finding rental properties... e.g. "rent by recommendation only", places to look, things to keep an eye out for, etc.-- I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you! I look forward to reading your responses!

Hi NOLA, I'm a fellow Loyno grad...OK, where to live. The Law School campus is at Broadway & St Charles(the old Dominican College for ladies)about 5 blocks from the main campus. Look for housing between Jefferson ave--The River--South Carrolton and Freret street. Most of the Tulane greek homes are on Broadway, so it may get a little LOUD! Mostly real safe in there.The closer to Audubon Park the better. Try craigslist and the Tulane bookstore. When you get an address post it in the forum as there are many who are helpful. BTW--The Tulane girls are to Die for... Good luck future Juris Doctor...

Be prepared to spend in the $1200-$1500 range for your preferences. Housing in the city has shot up, especially in that area. Hopefully you got a few roommates (*shrugs*) to ease the expenses a little.
