    Hi guys,
    I will be studying in london from september 16, and I booked at a private hall in vauxhall area(Spring mews,Fresh student living).After that I've heard that vauxhall area is dangerous for a 18 yr girl like me,since I will have to walk like 8 mins to the train station late in the afternoon and I am really concerned about this.

    Can anyone who knows about the area tell me a bit about how safe it is and whether I should seek for a safer area to stay?(Im an international student so I dont know london very well)

    Thanks xx

    Vauxhall is very safe, 10mn away from Pimlico and Victoria, still part of central London.

    Hm, because I've heard that it might be dangerous at night, like many drunk people in the streets etc... but thanks

    Drunk people are everywhere, including very prestigious places such as picaddilly circus, Vauxhall is not particularily dangerous, it's a small community with not that many residential areas, I'd say its particularly quiet

    Do you know whether Waterloo is a nicer and safer area compared to Vauxhall?

    Hi Napa,

    Hoping we can help out a little - and reassure you that Vauxhall is a really nice area and has been noted as an up and coming location to live. Safety is extremely important for any student staying so we can definitely understand you wanting to know more about the area.

    Vauxhall really does have a community feel to it, amenities are within walking distance of Spring Mews and there are many local events to attend to help those living in the area to settle in as well as the amazing events we hold on site. In terms of safety, Vauxhall is not highlighted as a dangerous area but as with anywhere you are we would always recommend students to be proactive in ensuring their own safety such as keeping to main roads, keeping your valuable items in bags or pockets when not needed, letting people know where you are going etc.

    Check out these links which may provide further information:

    Thanks
