Butler University Off Campus Apartments
Ready for an Apartment near BU?
Butler is regarded as one of the best schools in the country for academic quality, probably due in part to its tight focus on the liberal arts and sciences. You'll always speak to a teacher, rather than a teaching assistant, and class sizes at your new school are nice and intimate!
Number One City for Graduates
Indianapolis is home to Butler University, and you've chosen well in terms of location of your college. Indianapolis was recently ranked #1 of the top ten cities for recent graduates, owing to a diverse economy and growing number of opportunities. The twelfth largest city in the world is also known as the world's 'Racing Capital' ... although college will no doubt pass quite slowly sometimes!
Will Drive for Food
Indianapolis is quite a car-dependent city - although Butler University is quite close to the city center, the area around your school gets a walk score of only 35 out of 100. Pizza and coffee are quite close by, but you'll need to walk over three quarters of a mile for other amenities.
Butler Service to These Neighborhoods
Wynnedale, Spring Hill, Crows Nest and the delicious-sounding Rocky Ripple are all neighborhoods located ideally for Butler University students. The general area of all these neighborhoods is known as the Near North, a part of the city with a mix of commercial and residential facilities, great diversity in apartments and housing for rent, and near to medical facilities as well as shopping!
Fast Living in Indianapolis, City of Racing
The near north neighborhoods have plenty of housing for students, mostly at extremely reasonable prices. You can also look just east and west of the city for quite a selection of apartments for rent. Indianapolis is one of the few US cities where student apartments of decent quality can be found for under $400 per month.
Racy Entertainment and Fast Food in the City of Racing
While Indianapolis is mostly known for its motorsport, nightlife and dining in Indianapolis is actually quite varied. If you're looking for lunchtime sustenance, China King is cheap, cheerful and close to school. Puck's indy/metro style café is delicious and highly recommended, but does have a dress code and some substantial price tags. Head into the city for Yat's Cajun/Creole food and Café Patachou's delicious brunches.
As well as night time formula one cars, check out the Melody Inn - only a short stroll from school, and one of the city's best reviewed bars and nightlife venues. Talbott Street is a fun night out for gay and straight alike, especially on a Friday with $2.50 drink specials.

Is Indianapolis a town where I'll need a car to get to work?

The city is sprawling, and with no light rail system, almost all residents drive cars as their only mode of transportation.
