That is a rather large area that should have some choices depending on the price point. Have an agent set up a search, but also look at CL for non MLS rentals

Erik Sachs answered:
Ora-

The low income housing trust fund provides subsidies to landlords that have qualified units in their building. It differs from Section 8 vouchers because the subsidy stays with the unit, not the tenant. In order to qualify your units with the low income housing trust fund you need to find a third party servicer/case manager to provide tenants (the fund can provide a list of servicers). After you find the servicer, you fill out an application for your building and turn it in to the trust fund. The trust fund will only subsidize up to 33% of the total units in a building - this is also dependant upon the other subsides already in place in a building. Each building differs and the fund will only qualify certain units and rents in each buildings. I have several buildings that are funded by the low income housing trust fund.

I hope this helps.

There are many apartments available in all price ranges. Location, amenities and demand set the price of the rental. You as a tenant set the standard as far as your qualifications. Income, rental history, debt and credit may be factors that may be considered as far as setting your qualifications as a tenant. ... more

There is a lot of different things for rent. We agents can't comment on "nice" neighborhoods. Try to get a good leasing agent to help you out.

You can use $600 per bedroom as a loose rule of thumb for 2-3 bedroom rentals near campus.
South of 55th is more, but just south of the Midway and west of Drexel will get you lower rents, but fewer students in the area as well as being away form amenities like transportation, food and shopping. ... more

I came up with 3 from the MLS although I am not 100% clear on the school boundaries. The size of the dog can also be an issue. Let me know if you want to look at them.

Anna M Brocco answered:
Since rent to own properties may not be listed as such, consider working with an agent of your own. Keep in mind that rent to own can be risky and one could stand to lose a bit of money, therefore do inform yourself well, and consider consulting with an attorney who specializes in real estate beforehand.

If safety is your number one priority then stick to Wicker Park and Bucktown. You can also see Logan Square but not Humboldt Park.
