Best Baton Rouge Neighborhoods for a College Student: Home Advice from a Senior

The three most important things in college:

1. Having Fun.

2. Where you live.

3. Your education.

To the parents reading this…just kidding! Education always comes first. ? Yet, it is crucial to have a safe, stable, and comfortable environment to live in. If you’re reading this you’re most likely a current or future college student looking for a home. Listed below are a variety of great college neighborhoods that are fairly close to LSU’s campus. 

Pelican Lakes

Hunters Trace

Lake Villas

University Villas

Nicholson Lakes

Lake Beau Pre

Magnolia Lakes


Average Sales Price of Homes: $280,000

There are loan program options for loans that offer as low as a 5% down payment. With 5% down, the estimated monthly payment is $2,000. With 25% down, your monthly mortgage payment would be estimated at $1,800 (These prices pertain to certain loan programs).

Average Rent Prices of Homes: $2,100-$2,300

Why live in a house instead of an apartment?

  • More private and prone to safety
  • Yard space
  • No pet fees (depending on an owner’s preference)

Although freshmen (who do not live within the 50-mile radius of campus) are required to live on campus their first year, considering these neighborhoods ahead of time will relieve the stress of finding places in the future.

Feel free to contact The Fields Group, Bobby Lauricella, or John Michael Moore with any other questions or concerns.
