This is all so helpful! Thanks everyone for this aid in guiding us in the area. My hubs will be there this weekend and plans to look in UCity and near Maple/Shrewbury...but mostly U City. Through Wash U we were connected to some possible housing very close to campus that they reserve for faculty/staff... He will also be looking into that option. Most of those homes are just off the edge of campus. I looked at the crime stats on that area (South of Delmar and north of Forest Pkwy - in between N Big Bend and S Skinker) and the area looks pretty safe, based on that. Is that an ok location?

It's OK but a lot of undergraduate students also live there. Could be rather noisy and raucous for a a young family. I suggest a little farther away in University Park. There are a lot of grad students who are married with kids who want to have a little distance from the undergraduate kids. The area just north of campus has more petty crime than University Park, too.

^agree. The single family homes just north of campus are amazing (Ames Place, Parkview) with prices to match, but the apartments (which tend to be somewhat segregated from the beautiful single family homes) tend to be more run down looking. I'd for sure check out the multi-units on Pershing just north of FPP, but the multi-families between Kingsbury and Delmar would be less nice for a family. U Park is a mile (maybe mile and a half) from there but you can probably score a nicer unit and environment for your family there.
