Search Craigslist.org for apt/housing. Search on Kean University or Union, Hillside, or Elizabeth. Many people are renting out their homes these days because they can't sell.

Is anyone familiar with University Centre and/or this area and is the walk from University Centre to the rail station a dangerous one? Some of her classes are in the evening, so she would be regularly walking home from the station after dark. Any information would be greatly appreciated!! Also, if anyone is familiar with the off-campus housing options within walking distance of Kean University, I would welcome any advice.
I live in University Centre Apartments in Newark. I've been out late around the area and I've never had a problem. She would get on the light rail at Warren St (that way she can get the downtown fair for .65 instead of $1.35). The walk from here to Warren St station is safe. It's right along NJIT campus and the police dept is right there. NJIT soccer stadium is right there too and it's always lit up, it lights up the whole street between U-Centre and Warren St. station. It's safe there 24 hours a day. It's about as safe as you can get in NWK. I've lived here for a year now and I love it.

Have you ever been to University Heights? I live in the University Centre apts and walk back from the Warren Street station all the time at all times of the day and night and I've never had a problem or felt unsafe. The neighborhood around U Heights, NJIT and Rutgers-Newark is probably safer than a lot if not most neighborhoods in Elizabeth.

Well said! University Heights is very safe and there is no need to entertain fears. I bet most ney sayers have never been to Newark before. Take a ride there and have a feel of the city. Yes you would see some negativity but what do expect for a city of its size? There are good places in Newark and that must be acknowledged.

I second what twista6002 said. I went to school at Rutgers Newark and had a few friends who lived in University Centre. The building itself is completely safe (security + gated entrance). As long as she isn't walking west of Norfolk she'll be fine.
