Pretty much always, if its safe and nice you can't afford it.

We need more detail about which areas you are considering

This is a super difficult question to answer without knowing a little more about your budget and preferred general location - London is very expensive and of the 32 boroughs there are many 'nicer' parts

No budget? If there's no budget to worry about - definitely consider City (very quiet at all times), anywhere west of KCL for quite a while is lovely (i.e. Mayfair, Knightsbridge, Marylebone, Chelsea, Westminster, Kensington, Fitzrovia, Belgravia - all extremely expensive though, is budget really not a problem??). If you're willing to commute ~30 minutes then lots of options open up to you including Hampstead, etc..

Look at the general election map, the areas that voted red are generally less nice than those voted blue/orange. The bigger the red majority, the worse.

Crime rate map in comparison

Not getting into politics, but the Pearson correlation coefficient is so significant it's beyond reasonable doubt

What is your budget? :confused:
Will you be walking to uni or requiring car parking?

I've lived all over London during the last seven years; houseshares, flats and bedsits.
Best areas are Chelsea, Ealing, Hampstead, Kew, Mayfair, South Kensington and Wimbledon Chase.
The very worst areas are Brent, Croydon, Hackney, Lambeth, Shadwell, Shepherd's Bush, Southwark and Roehampton.
