I am a medical student at OSU looking for a 2 bed/ 1 bath or better for $700 or less, preferrably closs to campus, downtown, near gahanna, upper arlington, or another safe neighborhood. I have a 3 yr old Rat Terrior, only 10 lbs, and I am looking to sign a lease beginning June 1st or this year. Depending on how nice the property is I am willing to sign a lease for 2 years. I love windows and I’d prefer wood or tile floors over carpet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.January 30, 2013 9:50 pm at 9:50 pm #532640January 30, 2013 10:34 pm at 10:34 pm #532641

Craigslist all the way. There are plenty of listing near the med center if you just do a search for “med center” or “Victorian village”January 30, 2013 11:06 pm at 11:06 pm #532642

Just walk/bike/drive around and look for signs. I’ve always found that’s where you’ll find the good apartments that don’t have 20 other people looking at them. Craigslist is great, but it gets competitive.January 30, 2013 11:31 pm at 11:31 pm #532643

I’ve been on craigslist every day since Dec. 21st and there are way too many expensive apartment complexes posting messages 100 times a day. But I did look at Metro-rentals and I haven’t found anything in my price range that also allows pets. :-/ Thank you for the great suggestions though! What areas do you typically ride around in?January 30, 2013 11:50 pm at 11:50 pm #532644

if you want 2 bedrooms for less than 700 near campus you might need to look east campus and at the more student oriented housing sites.
up it to 8 or 900 and you’ll have an easier time somewhere like grandview, clintonville, maybe vv/north vv if you look hard.January 31, 2013 2:49 am at 2:49 am #532645

Yeah, I’m thinking a 2 bedroom in those areas for $700 is probably going to be pretty hard to come by.
We’ve got apartment listings posted here too, but they go fast and I don’t think there’s anything in your price range in those areas:January 31, 2013 2:49 am at 2:49 am #532646

Like the previous poster said.
Best rentals generally don’t need much more than a sign in the yard.January 31, 2013 4:29 am at 4:29 am #532647

It’s just slightly above your price, but Governours Square is reasonably safe and allows pets. http://www.bellapartmentliving.com/OH/Columbus/Governours-Square/
Rental market in Columbus has a supply/demand mismatch right now, so you’ll either have to pay a bit more or accept some compromises in the amenities or location.January 31, 2013 12:35 pm at 12:35 pm #532648

Agreed with the posters suggesting what you want may not be possible.

This one seems nice. $750, quaint neighborhood, allows dogs.
