    I was in St Louis this week looking for housing, and I found a great deal on a one bedroom apartment in downtwon St. Louis at Tucker and Locust (Jefferson Arms apartments). I absolutely love the building. It is a safe part of downtown and the place has a zillion amenities and it is only $525 a month including all utilities except phone and cable. My only concern is if there are any other students planning on living downtown.

    I know the Central West End is popular, but it is very pricey for even a studio apartment. Soulard is nice but there was a waitlist on every property I called. The south and southwest suburbs are nice but the areas are very residential and lacking a lot of potential entertainment. Please let me know if you or anyone you know has lived or will be living downtown. Thanks!

    I suspect you will not find many students that live there. That area is becoming more popular, though. I have always wanted to live in downtown St. Louis, but I felt that it was somewhat dead in the evenings. There is a reason that the central west end is expensive: its a nice, active area to live. If I were you, I would spend a little more time trying to find something in Soulard. It is always very active, and the old houses are terrific. I don't think that you would have a hard time finding something there.

    I live in the South City area and love it, but as you mentioned it is in a very residential. Lots of kids and families makes it pleasant, but kind of boring. It's cheap, though.

    hey,

    i wanted to be close to the school, and i wanted to hopefully find an apt i could live in for four years (and 3rd/4th year, it'll be even more important to be close to school). i'm living in the central west end in the west end terrace in a 2 bedroom/2 bath for 875 a month (with roommate). it's a bit more than places farther away, but decide what's important to you. for more money you are closer, for less you are farther away. also, park 44 had studios for 450/month. if you are a wash u student, olin is really cheap if you can stand to live in a dorm (my days of twin beds are over, but 3000/year, it's a great deal).

    I though that my rent ($260) was too expensive
