Default cheap and SAFE areas near Sac State?

I plan on moving to Sacramento at the beginning of next for the Spring semester at Sac State.

However, Since I live in southern California I haven't been able to find time to make the trip up there too check out apartments and the closest person I know to Sacramento is in Folsom (which i know isn't far away, but he's also new to the sacramento area)

A few things I'm looking for are
- safe possibly gated apartments.
- also cheap, i am a poor college student
- close to campus


I think overall feeling safe is the most important. After reading reviews online about gun shots, break ins and the like it hasn't left me with the warm fuzzies. what areas should I stay away from, or more importantly what apartments should i stay away from?


thanks for the help in advanced. i really appreciate it!

ohh cool, i'm going to be looking for the same thing in like 6 months. i grew up in sac and I'm transfering back to sac state from sdsu. Go on the csus website and check the housing department. they have a pretty good database of off campus apartments. try to stay north of 50 and south of northrop when lookin on a map. Also see about finding a place in midtown. Thats where I'm planning on living... its just west of 99 and has a bunch of cafes, bars and clubs situating amongst nice older houses/condos. lots of young people and good nightlife there, plus if you ride the hornet shuttle its only like 5 min from campus.

Cheapest you will find in that area is La Riviera drive, otherwise prepare to commute.

this should help you find an apartment. Try to stay on or near La Riviera drive. If you go south of the campus you will be in a high theft area.
Check online for maps of sacramento and follow la riviera drive or pull it up on maps.google.com
