Im down here this week looking for an apartment thats relatively close to the downtown UTSA campus. Im coming from Chicago area and will be a grad student of architecture in the fall. I have a car but prefer to live within walking distance in the event that it breaks down. my price range is roughly $500, it can be a studio or one bedroom ( i dont need a lot of space). Know of any that are safe????

Hate the be the bearer of bad news, but you probably won't get very far with $500 anywhere nice in SA without having a roommate. Especially in the downtown area..unless you move outside the trendy lofty areas on downtown into the more seedy near "side" anythings (and this is coming from someone who works on the near westside). And yes, the relocation sticky is a good one.

$500 might be pushing it but if you can stretch to $700 or so you could probably live within biking distance in Lavaca or King William (small apartments). Downtown UTSA is on the very west end of downtown, bordering a not so great 'hood. Now, that area is also revitalizing, but at a slooooow pace. So you're better off looking into the Southtown neighborhoods. I'm not sure any of the downtown/north 'hoods are close enough for biking, esp. at night. UTSA is kind of situated in an odd place.
