I'm going to UTA for grad school. I'm moving from Lawrence, KS. I'm single, have no kids nor attachments and am young. Price is not an issue. I'd like to be near campus and I've heard west near Martin High is a nice area.

Move south of 20, towards Mansfield. The closer you get to Mansfield the safer the area..

My daughter goes to UTA and we are in the process of relocating her because of the safety issue ..
The College its self is fine. But the Housing around the College , Homes and Apartments are just not to me in a low crime area.
It is better for her to make the small commute north to the college.. 8 miles or so on Cooper..

And on my earlier post.. 20 is I-20 , Interstate 20.

There is a way for you to see for your self. go to Dallas-Fort Worth News | WFAA.com .. it is a tv station here. go to the drop down menu under NEW.. look for crime map.. at the top right above the map click Arlington. When the map loads .. you can see the areas around the College on COOPER .. 20 is south.
You will not see to much on the map to the west because that is out of the Area they cover. But you can see the Arlington area pretty good.. Mansfield is south on Cooper south of I20.

Good Luck.

North Arlington, South Arlington, and West Arlington (Lake Arl.) are all nice areas. Central Arlington around UTA has some rough apts and East Arlington is in general kind of run down. In general I would say most of the parts of Arlington that are desirable are near the Green Oaks loop.

The Martin area is very nice but you can go further north and find good neighborhoods close to UTA. Generally south of Division, west of Cooper or Davis is pretty good. The Park Row/Bowen area might be something to consider for the right balance of distance and livability.
