I am a foreign student, and will be at LA in August to start my graduate program with my husband.

Can you please recommend a safe place to rent for the two years we'll be in LA.

We prefer a place near bus station or any sort of public transportation that goes to the campus.

Most important is the safety of the place budget up to $2000

If you enjoy an urban environment, try Downtown LA. There's a metro line that goes directly to USC, so the commute to school would be quick--say, 15min--and easy. Downtown is a great walkable neighborhood--everything you need for day-to-day life is within a few blocks. And, there are buses and metro lines that go to various other parts of the city for when you want to get out and explore.

More and more USC students are moving downtown, so you'd probably be living near some of your friends/colleagues. And you can definitely find a nice place for under $2000.

Good luck!

As far away from the USC campus as practical and possible.

Thank you both for your replies.

As for the downtown, is it safe to live there? isn't there any place near the beach and at the same time has the transportation options as the downtown?

That is what everybody says Patrolman, can you please be more specific and suggest some areas? and Is two weeks befor the semester starts enough to find an appartment?

You may want to look into Culver City and some neighborhoods near there like Palms,Cheviot Hills, Rancho Park along La Cienega on the east.. The Metro Expo rail line has a stop in Culver City that will get you to USC in 20 minutes. Palms has a good sizable UCLA and SMC student population because of cheaper rental prices.

When I was attending USC, I lived in Los Feliz and could take the bus down Vermont to the campus. Long ride, but it was worth it, IMHO.
