Why You Should Rent An Apartment Near LSU
September 30, 2018

If you’re looking for an apartment in Baton Rouge, you’ve probably noticed there are many options near LSU’s campus. If you’re a student the benefits are obvious. Easy commutes to classes and close to your all your college friends. But even if you’re not a student, check out an apartment near LSU for rent. Living near LSU can have its perks for young professionals too.

Still Close To Work

When you live near LSU, you’re close to more than the state’s flagship university. If you head down Nicholson Drive, you’re just minutes to downtown Baton Rouge. A commute to your downtown office will be the easiest part of your day. Or if you want to enjoy the restaurants and bars along Third Street, it’s a short Uber ride away. Mid-City is also easily reached from campus. Highland Road and Burbank Drive are right there too. You’ll have access to basically the entire city without having to rely on the interstates at all. Avoid the headaches and frustrations of Baton Rouge traffic!

Tailgating Champ

During the fall season, Baton Rouge’s social scene seems to center around LSU tailgating. And living near LSU means you’ll have your pick of tailgate spots. Not a football fan? You’ll be close to campus to cheer on the Tigers in basketball, gymnastics, or baseball. Not into sports at all? Enjoy LSU’s cultural contributions. Catch a play at the Swine Palace Theater or see one of the many concerts and shows hosted throughout campus.

Remembrance for Rent  

Maybe you miss the glory days of when you yourself were a student. Living close to campus can rekindle that nostalgia. You can eve live in the rhythm of the school year. Enjoy the quiet summers and holidays—without worrying about next semester’s classes! Visit Mike the Tiger or take a stroll under those stately oaks and broad magnolias. The lakes are also nearby for a run, bike ride, or dog walk. You can even get a quick ride to Tigerland if you’re really jonesing for a #throwback. Relive all your favorite memories without having to pay that annoying fee bill.

Decoding 1 Bedroom Apts in Downtown Baton Rouge
September 4, 2018

Apartment hunting can be difficult. It can seem even harder when you’re looking for a one bedroom. We can understand completely! In Baton Rouge especially, it can seem that all the rental properties focus on college students and their roommates. As a young professional, you should be proud to be at the point in your life and you should be enjoying it in a great apartment!  

You might be flying solo, but you’re not alone! The team at River House Apartments can walk with you through your search. Think of us as a resource to guide you through it all and you might end up wanting to live here too!

Decoding Apt Speak

Abbreviations have become more and more common in our everyday life thanks to texting and online chats. LOL, OMG, BRB are just a few. This might feel very 21st century, but description shortcuts have been used in apartment advertisements for decades. If you’re ISO (in search of) an apartment, you might have felt you needed to learn a new language. Decoding 1 bedroom apts in downtown Baton Rouge is essential if you’re going to rent! Below is a list of some of the more common terms. Use this to study up on your new vocabulary and become an apartment-hunting guru!


apt/apts: Apartment/Apartments

½ bath: Toilet and Sink Only

a/c: Air-Conditioned

appl: Appliances

avail: Available

BR: Bedroom

d/w: Dishwasher

da: Dining Area

dr: Dining Room

hw: Hardwood Floors

inc: Includes or Including

nr: Near

sf: Square Feet

s/s: Stainless Steel

studio: One-room apartment with a separate bathroom

util: Utilities (Gas and Electricity)

w/d: Washer/Dryer


ISO: 1 Bedroom Apt in Baton Rouge

Here in Baton Rouge, BR is also a favored way to shorten the name of our capital city. Don’t confuse BR for bedroom with BR for Baton Rouge! Now that you have this handy guide to reference, see if you can decode the below description.  

1BR/1BATH avail, 720 sf, hw, w/d & s/s appl inc, nr downtown & LSU   


Did you get it? Here’s the answer: It’s an available one-bedroom/one-bathroom apartment that’s 720 square feet and located near downtown Baton Rouge and LSU. It has hardwood floors and includes a washer, a dryer, and stainless steel appliances. Sounds pretty good, right? This apartment just happens to be a description of the Conti floor plan here at River House Apartments.

River House: Near Downtown

River House Apartments is located off Nicholson Drive a few blocks from downtown Baton Rouge and less than two miles from Tiger Stadium and LSU. Call us at (225) 230-0624 to check availability or stop by for a tour. You can even start the application process online now.

Your Baton Rouge Pet-Friendly Apartment
August 1, 2018

A Baton Rouge pet-friendly apartment can seem like a unicorn. Difficult to find and perhaps a little magical. A place might be pet-friendly but in a less-than-convenient location. Or you’d have to sacrifice other amenities to be able to live with your furry friend. At River House Apartments, we know the importance of man’s (and woman’s) best friend.

The Apartment You Want

Renee is a young adult looking for an apartment. We know her priorities: safe, washer/dryer included, and an on-site gym. And, of course, pet-friendly for her four-year-old cocker spaniel Shelby. But what about her pup’s needs and preferences? You might think all a pet needs is food and occasional cuddles. But many things affect your pup’s living situation satisfaction. We imagined what Shelby’s checklist might be for a pet-friendly apartment in Baton Rouge.

The Apartment Your Pet Wants

  • Room to Move: A girl likes her options. Sometimes Shelby wants to curl up cozy in the bedroom, other times she likes to chill on the kitchen floor. Renee should be able to go about her day without getting in her pup’s way.
  • Green Space: At their last place Shelby had to walk SO far to find the smallest piece of grass. And she had to be on a leash. Some resources such as baggies and a water source would be nice too. It’s hot out there for a spaniel.
  • Close to Work: Shelby’s a lady of leisure, so Renee has to work to support the both of them. She’d love it if Renee could easily come to visit at lunchtime (because maybe then Shelby would get a treat or two as well). She’d also home quickly in the evening for walks and playtime.

Your Baton Rouge Pet-Friendly Apartment

River House offers luxury living in Baton Rouge with many amenities. Our Bark Park is on-site and well lit. Lunchtime snuggles are within reach too! River House is minutes from LSU, downtown Baton Rouge, and MidCity. The gated facility provides security and peace of mind. Our 224 new apartment homes come in five different floor plans so you (and your pet) can choose the space that fits your needs. Call us to schedule a  tour at (225) 230-0624. Follow us on Facebook to keep up with our events.

At River House, what used to seem like a unicorn is within reach for you and your pet. Unless you have an actual pet unicorn, we might not be able to accommodate that.

We even have bike racks located throughout the property to enable our residents to stay active and you can even bring your pup along for the ride!
