I'll 2nd Jashrema's comments about Jamestown apartments.

I was about to submit a reply and SAY THE SAME THING, before I read JASHREMA's message.

I do not live here, but just a few blocks away.....in another apartment building. This is the best side of town to live on. At this location, you will be 5 minutes from U.T., 7 minutes from the MAIN shopping mail, 2 minutes from expressway. Close to major stores and grocery stores. Everything you need, is right here and the apartment complex has a pool and tennis court. It is tucked away in a residential neighborhood. Not like on a major thoroughfare, where you have to listen to beeping cars drive by, all day.

Send me a private message if you like....if you have futher questions or need directions.

Park Lane Luxury Apartments is in walking distance of Toledo Museum of Art and their glass pavilion. Riverfront Apartments as downtown as it gets- great views and great location but there are income restrictions. If you don't want to live in downtown Toledo, try Tracy Creek Apartments or Preston Gardens (Levis Commons). They are both really nice. Sylvan Lakes in Sylvania is pretty nice too. Sylvania, in my opinion, is the nicest suburb of Toledo. They have really good road and grounds maintenace, a downtown area, and it's hip.

Lake of the woods at bancroft and mccord is SUPER nice....right at toledo, springfield, sylvania border. You're across from Mr. Freeze too....you won't know how nice that is until you move there and it's summer.

To be honest, I wouldn't want to move too far from campus. I went to school at UT, both undergrad and grad. You'll want to to be closer, but no in the "student" housing apartments located right near campus. Stay west of campus. East is much older, much more inner city, much more crime. Lake of the Woods and Giant Oak are both real nice, right next to each other, and quick shot down Dorr or Bancroft to get to campus.

Some of the other areas mentioned aren't as nice, older buildings, and while not really "far" from campus, the commute will get old if you are constantly running back and forth from campus. It's nice to have the option to go home during breaks in the day.

I've lived in a TON of places around UT and most of my friends have lived in the others, so feel free to ask questions on some you find.

Just stay away from the university area and completely avoid north Toledo....it's nothing but crime.

I'm in the same position and am stuck between Hamlet at Maumee and Tracy Creek. Both seem like really nice areas, but I'm from the Cleveland area so don't really know which to choose.

Congratulations on coming to Toledo for Grad School. I've found my experience here very enlightening :-)

I made this because of all the recent posts about graduate students moving to Toledo:
