I lived in a neighborhood about 2 miles from campus. I lived off of Saint Andrews Place. I think that was the name of the neighborhood also. Saint Andrews Place is off of Metzerott. I lived there for 2 years during college and always felt completely safe.

I lived for two years at University Square Apartments in Old Greenbelt!! the apartments were huge and as a PG Teacher i had a discount! Although it was a 1 bedroom and was close to $1000...it was a great area! i felt secluded even though i really wasn't-but old greenbelt has that feel....in my building were mostly diverse families with a few other teachers and an apartment with a couple guys who went to UM college park-they caught the shuttle that came within one block of our apartments! I highly recommend this area-and if you can get a job at greenbelt elementary school it is nice! (not where i taught but went to workshops there)......

For instance, some guy unaffiliated with UMD got assaulted and mugged outside of an off-campus CVS a few days ago. Plus, there are many reports of random persons being mugged while walking from the CP Metro station late at night.
It happens from time to time, but CP is no where near as unsafe as was being portrayed here.

Default close to CP?

Sorry guys, as someone who has worked for the College Park Police Dept. (yes, there is one, as opposed to the uninformed post about them maybe getting one in a couple years), I'd have to say your best bet is as far away from College Park as you're willing to go. Walking distance isn't going to be the safest, not by a long shot. My personal recommendation is to go into Montgomery County. Probably north/northeast of Silver Spring. The commute might be about a half-hour long during rush hour(skip the beltway), but at least you'll feel safer once you get home.

Way to make things better. Scare all the good people away, let all the bad ones come. Is the new CP police department that desperate for work?
