I need help finding a safe inexpensive rental for my sister. She is currently attending the UTSA downtown campus and has to drive a long way to school. Can anyone suggest a safe area? Thank you.

Your sister's best bet is probably the area around San Antonio College, just north of downtown, including the Tobin Hill area. It's an area that sees plenty of college students and apartment resident turnover. Not a dangerous part of town at all, and getting better by the day, with plenty of cheap apartments in converted old houses or small apartment buildings. Most of these places will be very basic and pretty run down. But cheap.

What's inexpensive?
There are many apartments in King William and Lavaca, some of which are inexpensive, but it varies. You'll need to look on a space by space basis.

Maybe, but we'll have a better shot at giving you good recommendations if you give us the following:
  • Rent - What is an acceptable price range for her?
  • Radius - How many miles from campus is still close for her?

Agreed! OP, I live in the SAC area and it's a great and affordable area.

If she absolutely needs to live near UTSA downtown, I'd also recommend the: Towne Center Apartments.

It's literally a few minutes away from UTSA downtown (on the inside of the highway IH 35). She would be near Market Square, Santa Rosa Hospital, Central Library, Wells Fargo Bank (across from Market Square), and even the University Health System Brady Green clinic. She could even walk about 5 minutes to the Fox Tech High School track, and go running there for exercise.

The apartments are WONDERFUL! It's quiet, safe, beautiful place and very affordable!

A family member of mine has lived there for 5 years; he only pays $360.00 (senior citizen $30-40.00 discount) for a spacious efficiency on the third floor. He has a balcony and the manager always gets things fixed right away.
