We may be moving to Charlotte b/c my husband may attend grad school there. We want to live fairly close to the University (University of NC - Charlotte) and I was wondering if the area around the Univ is considered a safe area to live? any recommendation on apartments that a good place to live or apts definitely to stay away from? Thanks.

If you want an apartment close to the university, you might want to take a look at http://www.thepiedmontativymeadow.com/ My son currently lives there, and it seems much quieter, cleaner than most in the area.

Use the search feature above and type in "University area". This topic has been previously discussed so I am sure you will find posts that answer some of your questions. In my opinion, you should look to live north of the campus or even northwest, but not south. Good luck.

if you want pm me. I just got back from a 3 day visit we checked out 13 apartments in that area all around the school. There are actually over 50 apartment complexes in that area alone. The two that we narrowed down to are autumn park and dominion norcroft. Most were nice and in busy but safe feeling areas but for instance the piedmont was not a spacious enough floorplan as were some of the others. They were all beautiful apartments but I think that we found the 2 best. Now its just impossible to narrow between the two. Another spectacular one was colonial legacy park which included washer dryer and cable. The 2 bedroom actually ended up being a 3 bedroom b/c the "study" was actually as big as the other 2 bedrooms and had its own closet and was only 965 a month. Very nice apartment just slightly out of our price range. Again if you have any questions feel free to ask from a fresh opinion of the area with the same goal. There are these maps that a lot of the apartments give out that are fold out fun maps that acutally show the whole area and where EVERYTHING is with a list on the back of all the restaurants and apts and stores and all that. It came in VERY handy as there is so much in that area.

Thumbs up University Area CLT

University Area CLT is definitely safe. Downtown is where you should be a little more concerned. I grew up in that area.
