Overview of Pittsburgh

College students and recent graduates are finding amazing cheap apartments in the eclectic neighborhoods of Pittsburgh.

Cheap apartments can be found in the neighborhoods surrounding Pittsburgh's 25 four-year colleges and universities. This housing is largely aimed at students, making it a great option for anyone looking to downsize or find an affordable apartment for rent after graduation. The search tools at Rent.com allow you to set your price range, ensuring that you'll find the perfect place that fits in your budget.

Finding a Cheap Apartment in Pittsburgh

The Shadyside and Oakland neighborhoods are convenient for students attending Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh, but many young professionals also take advantage of this affordable housing. These neighborhoods are home to great restaurants like the famous Primanti Bros. sandwich shop in Central Oakland, and the bars in Shadyside are filled with young people on Friday and Saturday nights. If you're looking to be a little closer to downtown companies like PNC Financial Services or Heinz, you may consider Mount Washington or Duquesne Heights; both overlook downtown Pittsburgh and offer a great view of the Monongahela River. While apartments in these neighborhoods vary in price, there are a number of great places for rent for under $1,000 per month. Some studio apartments can even be found for as low as $500 per month, but you can expect the majority to range between $750 and $950.

There are many ways to save as you move into your new apartment, including mixing and matching hand-me-down furniture. This Rent.com blog post explains how to do it for a cheap yet stylish apartment.
