If you live near Lexington and are interested, my friend Emily has an apartment for rent close to UK's campus! It's recently renovated, in a secure building with a pool. It's 1-bedroom with an open floor plan. Rent is $600 per month and the only utility is KU. It runs less than $30 per month. Some months it's like half that. Let me know if you're interested and I'll get you in touch with her! You can also check out her blog and comment to her there, too.
