University District — 4.7/10 Rating (based on 3 neighborhood reviews)
Crime and Grime. TONS of property crime and a constant risk of being mugged or worse. Be prepared to dodge needles, rogue homeless people, and a variety of drunks. Only good thing about the neighborhood is the cheap food nearby, and the short walk to campus.

Love Seattle and everything that goes on there! Recommend living in Seattle instead of the suburbs.

Not a great area to live in general. Only real upsides are being close to UW campus and close to basic necessities like supermarkets, bus lines, etc.
