Here is a good starter list of secured credit cards.  This is only a list of suggestions.  Please make sure that you do your research & carefully review each card before applying.

Secured Credit Cards

Reporting Rent Payments

If secured credit cards aren't your thing or you're looking for additional ways to build credit, services such as Rent Reporters, will help you get your rent payments reported to the credit bureaus.  These services will coordinate with your landlord to get the information needed added to your credit report.  These are paid services so make sure that you do your research before paying.
