Hi Seattle,

I'm helping my GF move to UW for grad school and am trying to get an idea of apartments in that part of town. I'm guessing there are some pretty dumpy college places, but any idea what a clean(er) efficiency might run? Are there areas that should be avoided? How's bus service? I would prefer a larger company type rental just because it'll be easier to arrange long distance. I've done the craigslist rental thing here in Denver and in Minneapolis and have had very mixed results.

This is a "temporary" move (temporary in the semi-permanent grad school sense) and its complicated, but technically she'll be a visiting student for a year to end of grad school so I don't think campus housing is an option at this point.

Thanks in advance!

Bus service for the University District is excellent -- comfortable buses, several routes, going in various directions, and pretty frequently. Not to worry. She can go from the center of the U District and be in downtown Seattle in about 12 minutes.

Here is another resource for apartments, the combined classifieds of the two leading newspapers for Seattle. All the neighborhoods near the U District would probably work well. The U District is filled with apartment buildings that are nice to extremely nice, but undergrads being who they are the area can get noisy at nights, especially on the weekends.
