  • University of Memphis

    The University of Memphis

    The University of Memphis maybe small by US standards, but is highly regarded when it comes to academics. With a great student-teacher ratio of 22:1, and a broad, well-organized range of schools and degrees, it is one of Tennessee's best.

    America's Musical Soul

    The greater Memphis area is quite busy, including nearby counties in Arkansas and Missisippi as it does. Memphis is home to a huge number of different faiths as well as races, and an enormous part of America's musical heritage.

    My Memphis Neighborhood

    If you want your housing to be close to school, the East Memphis/Colonial/Yorkshire area is the neighborhood where you'll be searching for an apartment. Southside and River Oaks/Kirby/Balmoral are also neighborhoods close to school. With a walkability score of only 69 out of 100, you'll be able to do without the car occasionally ... but will be fairly trapped without one. A car will expand your neighborhood choices, though!

    Germantown is ranked one of the safest communities of its size in the Southeast - important in Memphis, and is a tightly knit community. This is one of the neighborhoods that offers you the best chance to study in peace, as well as getting to know the natural Tennessee.

    At Home in Memphis

    Memphis is one of the most affordable places to find apartment rentals in the entire United States - there is a huge selection of housing and apartments for rent for under $400 per month, and quite a few of these are clustered around the university district. The area around Parkway Village/Oakhaven is one of those with the densest housing options, and is not too far from University of Memphis.

    Ribs and BBQ, Subs and Steak

    Memphis is known as one of the heartlands of America, and you can find all kinds of traditional Southern fare in the area. When the cafeteria no longer appeals, Corky's Ribs and BBQ offers a tasty alternative, and if you have early classes, Brother Juniper's Breakfast and Brunch will be a lifesaver.

    Memphis's nightlife is understandably focused on the blues, roots and soul music that the area is famous for. The Cove, a dive bar a short distance north of school, is a favorite hangout for students, while Epalenque and J&B Lounge are also popular.

  • The University of Memphis

    You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog, going to the University of Memphis. Well you ain’t never rented an off-campus apartment and you ain’t no friend of mine. There is an easy way to become my friend, and that is to rent an off-campus apartment. I can’t promise that Elviswill be your friend, because he’s dead. (Or issssss he????) Maybe if he had aspirations to go the University of Memphis he wouldn’t have let himself go and gone into hiding. Why is the U of M so flippin’ great? Because everybody in the whole school block likes dancin’ to the jailhouse rock. Another reason is that the U of M has a variety of majors and research opportunities, and focuses on preparing students for life after college by teaching them the practical and theoretical skills for being successful. Professors are approachable and ready to give one-on-one help in office hours. When the Memphis Tigers aren’t studying, they are playing hard at football, soccer, baseball, basketball etc. IM sports are also a great way for students to get involved in athletics and meet people. “I Want You I Need You I Love You” Most people don’t know that this famous Elvis tune was written about his off-campus apartment in Memphis. Renting an apartment is easy in this town as there are plenty of complexes surrounding campus that are both affordable and desirable. To make things even easier for prospective renters, our apartment guide is available to help you search for a place and location that works for you. Living off campus gives students the chance to get all shook up about living in such a swingin’ town that is full of history and things to do. Campus is only fifteen minutes from downtown, and is surrounded by great hangout spots like Poplar Avenue and Beale Street, which are full of bars, clubs, restaurants and shops. Most students get around Memphis on bike or by way of the MATA bus, so getting around is just a shake rattle and roll. Once you get your new apartment and nail the bus system, there will be nothing keeping you from hitting up every single bar in Memphis, and slowly but surely, becoming a fat Elvis version of yourself from all the beer consumption. Don’t be a £ Let’s not blame Elvis for getting fat. Everyone is allowed to put on their Freshman Fifteen and when he died, (by “died,” I mean “went into hiding”) he lost all the weight anyway. People often see the new and improved Elvis hanging out in spots like the Bardog Tavern, sippin’ on a lite beer. Most don’t recognize the King because of his new body and reconstructed plastic face, but I promise you that you probably also sat next to him at Hi-Tone Café and witnessed him bobbin’ his head to the tunes of the local bands that play there. If the King of Rock N’ Roll chose to place Graceland in Memphis, TN, then you know that this town has gotta be poppin’. Take advantage of going to school in the area and rent an off-campus apartment so you can play the “Where’s Elvis” game all day every day.
