I will also apologize for driving this topic into the ground...but I will be moving to St. Louis in August to continue my graduate studies at SLU. I don't know the area that well, but I have been advised by some people to look at the Central West End and University City areas. I'd be more than happy with the Downtown environment as well, but being a poor graduate student, rent is my biggest issue.

Any advice on some relatively inexpensive apartments/lofts in the CWE/UC areas? Or any other areas that are not too far from SLU itself.

Thanks!

What will your studies be in? SLU just opened a new law school building downtown, so if law is your field you may want to consider downtown. Many of the loft rehabs have a few income restricted units which are great for students. The Paul Brown building is an example.

Will you be relying on public transportation or do you have a car? Also, do you have an ideal range for rent?

If you are looking downtown check out the Paul Brown, Merchandise Mart, Millenium Apt, Gentrys Landing, and Gallery 400. Usually more affordable for students.

I'll be in the clinical psychology PhD program, so I'll be on the main campus primarily. I'd like to rely on public transportation if possible, but I will have the ability to drive. I'd like to keep rent under $1000 if possible. I realize that may eliminate most of the downtown options.
