Is it a good place or a bad place? I'm going to visit my friend that I met from online the other day, and we have been talking on the phone for a while. She goes to old dominion university. Thanks for your inputs in advance.

The complex is nice but the surrounding area is not. Watch your back around there. Lots of crime occurs right outside The District.

The areas around ODU are known as Park Place and they have some problems although the city has been trying hard to work them out. The West Ghent area after the underpass on Hampton BLVD/Colley Ave. going towards the Hospital. Typically those apartments are pretty nice and are college 'goer' friendly the last time I checked and less crime.

Ghent is nice, but what he was referring to is an actual apartment complex just off the ODU campus.

Not far from downtown Norfolk, but still pretty urban. Depends on who you ask; stay on the main roads, go in the daytime.
