Hi I am moving to Arlington in the Fall. I have visited Arlington twice and I am vaguely familiar with some areas... I was hoping to live close to UTA since I am going to be a student. But, I dont want to end up living somewhere shady and unsafe for a young girl. Can anyone recomend me some apartment complexes?

I also am considering other areas in Arlington that may be nicer/safer but not more than 15 min away from UTA... suggestions appreciated!

I'd check out apartments on Green Oaks between Cooper and Fielder on the north side. Nice area with moderately priced apartments. River Legacy Park is there and there's always lots of younger people jogging, biking, etc.

check a crime map and call the Arlington police itself

the area around UTA is what I would call shady--there are also section 8 apartments in Arlington--quite a few of them--the city has higher % of poverty than you might think--there are gangs in Arlington as well--
North Green Oaks west of 157 does have quite a few apartments along there
same with east side of 157 but they are not that close to UTA
Arlington is "pocket" city--you can be in ok area and cross a street and it is quickly not so ok--
frankly I think it is very confusing to know when you are in a "nice" area sometimes--

Google map UTA and then search for "apartments"
you can range out from there
most of them are going to have some comments--probably some of those posted are clankers but you can see what your options are
you don't mention price--always a factor...
