I saw people talking about housing. Don't live on Chittenden, that's where they riot. Seriously. They flip cars over and light them on fire there. Gateway is overpriced, but nice and right next to the law school. There's are a lot of apartments nearby, look at west 10th and down into the Short North (but be really careful on EAST 9th and down).
Chittenden isn't all that bad... There is one weekend of the year called Chitt Show, where things get a bit hectic. But it's all undergrads, which is why I wouldn't live there.
I would live in the Gateway, or somewhere west of High St. and south of campus. The Short North and Victorian Village are saturated with yo pros. If you bring a car or don't mind busing it to school, I'd live there.
