Parking in particular areas of town are notorious. QueenAnne, Freemont, Belltown and U District among them. Many potential renters in these areas ocnsider the upside to the location worth it and resort to alternative means of transportation. In the case of the U district, you are appealing primarily to students or maybe a traveling professor. Definitely rent it, but I would try marketing on campus and in the campus newspaper in addition to Criag's List. If the price is right, they will come.
