I'm starting at UMD, College Park in the fall as a PhD student so I'm gonna be broke most of the time and I'm looking for a cheap apartment

I'm looking for a decent place to live (preferably a studio) that's affordable but not in a place where I"ll be fearing for my life that's near the University or at least driving distance.

Traffic's no issue (I live outside of LA) so does anyone know of some areas where I should start my search?

I've been staring at maps for ages and I've had no luck myself.

I think you'll find plenty of affordable places right in College Park. I don't know specific neighborhoods, though. Another option is Takoma Park, which is a nice, eclectic neighborhood near College Park.

Go to Apartments for rent: Apartment Guide, your free apartment finder and put in College Park, Adelphi, Takoma Park, Greenbelt.

The main streets around UMD are University Blvd, Metzerrot, US Rt. 1. . . New Hampshire Ave is up a little bit.

There are pockets of bad sprinkled throughout but UMD College Park is a city unto itself and I think you'll be o.k. with apartments in that area. . . maybe a room for rent in someone's basement also - College Park is the address of the campus.
