Hey Y'all! My name is Robert and I will be moving to the Orlando area between September and December 2013. I have applied and got accepted to UCF's Rosen College of Hospitality Management. I am looking for an apartment somewhere between Downtown Orlando and Lake Buena Vista. The college campus is located off Universal Boulevard and Florida 528 Toll (Martin Anderson Beachline Expy) near the convention center. My search parameters are pretty broad. I would like the Southern Border to be W Osceola Parkway. The Western Border to be S Apopka/Vineland Road. The northern border to be Conway Road. And the Eastern border S Orange Blossom Trail. I am not opposed to living downtown as well even though it doesn't fall into this general area. Closeness to the parks is not necessarily a priority as working and schooling full time will eat much of my free time. I am looking for safe and affordable. My budget maxes out around 1250 per month. I have looked at a couple places, the Vinings at Westwood, Camden World Gateway, various Millenia area apartments, Lofts at SoDo, SkyHouse, and 55 West. Has anyone lived or had friends live in any of these apartments? Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I am NOT interested in purchasing a home, but wouldn't be opposed to renting a home or condo. Are any neighborhoods better than others? I've looked at Dr. Phillips but it is a little out of my budgets range. Anyways, I can't wait for the move and to be closer to my favorite place in the World, WDW. Hopefully I can meet some of y'all in the parks starting this fall and we can become great friends.
