You can find a cheap studio apartment by browsing the listings of apartments for rent on websites such as Apartments.com and ApartmentGuide.com. Choose your preferred location and price range to select studio apartments from the list of available properties.
You can also search for cheap studio apartments through Sublet.com. Sublet.com lists apartments for rent by renters. Select the Find Rentals tab at the top of the Sublet.com home page, and enter your region and state in the menu that appears in the middle of the screen. Enter the specific area or city to reveal a list of apartments matching the search criteria. Deselect the check boxes under Size so that only the studio box has a check. Use the sliding bar under Rent to adjust the search to fit the budget for the studio apartment. Search results update as you move the rent bar to reflect studio apartments within the designated price range.
