Worth...all of those who are going to be going to Tx Wesleyan...it is in a VERY CRAPPY part of town. If you're wanting to live close to the university, dorms probably would be best...but don't be runnin' around at night by yourself...EVER!! The good news is, you don't have to go too far from there to be in a pretty decent part of town...the bad news is with all the traffic, even a short way can take 20-30 minutes. There are tons of apartment complexes in town...too many to list. Here is an apartment locator that says they are a *free service (no definition for the *) 817-696-9995. SW Ft Worth/Hulen area is pretty nice...lots of apartments out there. Lots of students in the area with Tx Wesleyan, TCU, UTA, UNT, TCOM all in or around Ft. Worth.

Apr 3, '04Joined: Oct '03; Posts: 10I thought I would give a little input here. I was in Ft. Worth this past week. While there I looked at the apt. situation. There are TONS of apt. buildings. I also looked into the extended stay type places. There is one in the Fossil Creek area...off the 820 loop at N. Beach...called Budget Suites. If you get the budget package, it is $699 a month for a one bedroom. This includes electricity, water, local phone....you have a kitchen also. You can go up to a more expensive rate and add maid service, and some other ammenities. Thought you might want to consider this also.
