Overview of Providence

With five major universities, including Providence College and Rhode Island College, Providence has many cheap apartments that might be attractive to people in school or just starting out on their own. Using the Rent.com search filters can help you find a cheap apartment in Providence that fits your budget.

Even with limited funds, you can still have a great time in Rhode Island's capital city. Waterplace Park hosts the WaterFire festival every summer in addition to free concerts, and it's a great place to take a stroll or a run along the Providence River. You'll find restaurants, cafes, and bars nearby in Downtown Providence, and depending on where you live, you can walk there or take a RIPTA city bus.

Finding a Cheap Apartment in Providence

Neighborhoods in Providence have a lot of spirit, and communities in the south side of town find a way to blend the city's historical roots with the cultures of people from Latin America and young people looking for new opportunities. Here, rents for one-bedroom apartments often run between $900 and $1,200.

If you'd like to live closer to the college scene northwest of downtown, find a buddy or two and go in together for a two-bedroom apartment for $1,100 - $1,400. Sharing space can get you closer to the action and give you a fun experience with friends.

What to Search for in Cheap Apartments in Providence

Since Providence is near the water and far enough north, living without an air conditioner can be a practical way to save money on your energy bill. With the snowy winters, you should try to find a place that has a newer heating system and covered parking. This will keep you warm and cozy while inside, and it will save you from circling the icy roads searching for a spot to park.

Most cheap apartments for rent have a small kitchen with a stove, oven and refrigerator, and they may or may not have a dishwasher. If that's a deal-breaker for you, Rent.com's search filter can help you find a suitable apartment. The living room should have enough space for your TV, computer and a couch or two, and the bedroom and bathroom should be pretty basic yet comfortable.
