Everything about the act of moving is overwhelming. The packing, the unpacking, the logistics, the Marie Kondo-ing, the inevitable lovers’ quarrels, the parental spats, the suddenly elusive landlord.
And that says nothing of actually finding a new place.
But we’re here to help. Once again, we’ve assembled a list of the best apartments for rent in Pittsburgh this month.
As always, we’ve prioritized places with walkable neighborhoods, public transit access, and character (no plain cookie-cutter apartments here) — all in an effort to make apartment hunting a little easier.
Whether you’re looking for a new place or you’re just window-shopping, these 10 Pittsburgh apartments are worth your time (and money) right now. Get ’em while they’re hot (or while the listings are still up) — and check out what’s still available from last month.
So, in summary, while we can’t help you physically move your belongings — or maybe we can, next weekend is looking wide open — we can definitely help you in your search for that dream abode. Happy hunting, friends, and best of luck out there.
1 bedroom, $755 per month, available August 1
This first-floor one-bedroom unit is close to food, schools, retail, and public transit. It comes with an on-site washer and dryer and off-street parking.
Quick note: Tenants are responsible for electricity costs, and the heat in this unit is electric, so expect higher-than-normal bills in the winter. But the relatively affordable rental price on this apartment may be worth it.
Studio, $849 per month, available July 1
You wanted bamboo flooring in the living space, you got bamboo flooring in the living space. And this studio apartment, located within walking distance of Highland Park and the reservoir, also boasts an updated bathroom, access to a bike storage room, deliciously close proximity to Point Brugge, Tambellini’s Restaurant, and Park Place Cafe.
One bedroom, $899 per month, available August 5
In the middle of it all, this East Liberty one-bedroom unit is close to everything and probably everyone else you know currently living in Pittsburgh. It’s got a quirky layout and extremely walkable location. There’s laundry in the building, too. And did we mention the walkability?
Two bedrooms, $900 per month, available July 1
High ceilings. Big windows. Crown molding.

Close to parks, shopping, and public transit, this two-bedroom unit feels remote but isn’t. It has two decks, a private yard, large walk-in closets, and city views.
One bedroom, $1,250 per month, available now
A one-bedroom unit with exposed brick, its own washer and dryer, nine-foot high ceilings — and did we mention it’s Downtown? We won’t list all the nearby amenities here, but you’re waking up in the Cultural District and a stone’s throw from everything on the North Shore.
One bedroom, $1,530 per month, available July 1
Sleek, minimalist design, this Strip District one-bedroom may look like a Yeezy showroom, but it could actually be your home instead.
