Looking at craigslist it seems that I could very easily find a 1BR for 600 a month? Is this accurate? What are the main neighborhoods students live in? Ideally, I would like a place relatively quiet (away from undergrads), near some park with greenery to go running, and within a mile or mile and a half of classes? thanks
University City is cool and it's near the school, but it is kind of undergrad-y. I think you would like the Central West End. It's at the opposite end of the enormous park, it's a little more quieter and mature, but there's still a lot to do. Lots of grad students and medical school people in the area.
I'm not sure what housing is like in other areas, but I'm currently paying $625/month in rent + ~$18/month in electric (other utilities are included) for a studio in the CWE. This was one of the best deals I found (there were a few other apts that were cheaper, but they also tended to be older and/or kinda sketchy). Prices also tend to rise as you get closer to the busier parts of the CWE (i.e. near Drunken Fish). HTH.
