Check them out and try to see if UCD has an RTD fee in their tuition. If they do that means that you get a sticker on your student ID card that allows you to ride the busses and light rail for "free". Good luck with finding a place that works for ya!

Just joined allnurses.com, I'll be starting the Traditional program as a 2nd degree B.S. student this summer! Eando and luce8888, I'll be moving from out-of-state as well (PA). My fiance and I are looking at 1 bedroom apartments in the Capitol Hill/Cheesman park neighborhood south of downtown Denver (we know some friends that live there and they speak very highly of the neighborhood). The on street parking situation is typical for city living, but it is close to the bus line on Colfax and about a 20-30 minute drive from campus. You can find a small studio for about $500-600/month. Hope that helps, can't wait to meet everyone!
- 0Mar 4, '13 by luce8888eando - I was looking at both of those too! I only know one person in Denver, but he advised me not to live in Aurora because there are a lot of dangerous areas. I'm sure there's good parts as well as bad parts, but that kind of scared me away! I have been looking into places in Denver - farther from campus but hopefully safer :/

That area is a mix of apartment buildings and converted Victorian homes. I've been scouting Craigslist which has been pretty helpful. It takes a bit of digging to find the affordable apartments, but I have come across some affordable studios (under $650). There are some good options to sublet too; it would be a pain to move in the middle of the program but might be worth considering if you can't afford to take an extra trip out and want some time to explore the region. I personally am not a fan of the suburbs but some of the cities around Denver (Northglenn, Littleton, Westminster, Englewood) are more reasonable than downtown if you're willing to deal with the commute.

thanks for the info! Just knowing the names of these neighborhoods are a great help, I am so clueless and google maps can be difficult to tell sometimes!
I have heard that Aurora is not the best place to live in. Trying to decide if I would rather live super close to campus or live a bit further out... I wonder how our class schedules will be like, but I imagine they will be pretty early everyday
anyways, have you planned when you will move out to colorado?
