Apartment: Coventry Terrace
Location: 3033 July Street - walking distance from the north gates of LSU
Contact Information: (225)344-9387 Office only open M-F (answering service catches calls when office not open)
Size: 1 bedroom, 1 bath, small walk-in closet, kitchen, joint dining room/living room (relatively small apartment)
Cost: $575
Would you recommend? Depends. There may be better deals across the Baton Rouge area. If living close to campus is very important to you then it is a good place. The complex is pretty quite and low key. The management is very nice and is very responsive to any problems you have. Though the building is pretty old, the interiors are well maintained and appliances are regularly updated as needed.
Additional Comments: The complex has a small pool area. The apartment complex is pretty old and the cable outlet is in an odd place, since it was wired in after apartments were built. You will need an extra long cable to extend it to where you want it in the apartment. Also, if you plan on running cable to multiple places
in your apartment, then you will need to buy a splitter or two.

Apartment: Southgate Towers
Location: Nicholson Drive, a couple miles south of campus
Contact Information: http://www.southgatetowers.com
Size: 1 bedroom (600 sq. ft.)
Cost: $1000/mo. This includes water, gas, cable, and internet. The only utility you have to pay is electric.
Would you recommend? yes
Additional Comments: The cost is steep, but there are a lot of amenities including a nice parking garage, good security, a swimming pool, gym, computer room, and concierge desk. Plus it's really close to campus, and there is a bus that picks you up right in front of the building and drops you off right in front of Lockett. So you save on gas by not driving, and with the utilities included in the price, it makes it more reasonable.
