Ideally I want to live near enough campus so that I can walk (I like the exercise and I hate looking for parking, don't need students scratching my car) to class. I'm open to a one or 2 bedroom place. At my undergrad the only grad housing they had was situated with the "family housing" wing and I did not want to deal with kids while I was trying to study. Is that how the housing at LSU is? Or are grad students, who don't have kids, segregated from those that do have kids?
It's definitely worth looking in to. East campus apartments are pretty nice and quiet for the price, plus you'd get roomed with a law student (or at least a grad student I believe). I still believe it's a mix of ugs and grads because I know for a fact ugs can stay at ECA.
Your other close walkable off campus options are mostly located in the North Gate area.

I know the 1bdrs at these places are in high demand but they usually have a lot of 2s to go around. They are a bit pricy (given their location) but I guess you have to weigh the pros/cons.
I'd definitely check up on what the situation is with ECA on Saturday. Whatever you do, don't stay in graduate dorms though lol.
