    What, on the edge of a large city, just fifteen minutes from the city centre?

    I've said it before, I'll say it again, people must think Warwick's miles away from civilisation.

    Sheffield is apparently very safe. I've never had any problems in Leeds, myself, but I don't live in the Hyde Park/Headingley area.

    I would reckon stirling is pretty safe, or st andrews. Most unis are in pretty safe locations though, they don't tend to be in massively violent parts of town.

    York, unless you're an unlocked bicycle.

    Though according to that Independent article, we're 16th worst. Probably because of complacent cyclists.

    :p: To be fair, I did know about it, but decided against it -- mainly because I had quite a lot of language work to do but also because it sounded like it would be the usual tosh everyone should already know!

    I may be stereotypical but I hear that Glasgow is a very unsafe city. I think they are trying to make people think it is safe now, but even so I would never go there.
    You would never go there?

    That's such a shame, Glasgow is actually great. Not really rough like everyone makes out, of course it has its parts but don't all cities?

    I'm constantly in Glasgow and have never experienced any violence, and i always feel safe because there are always loads of people around.

    Id say in my year and nearly a half in Liverpool, Ive never had much hassle, and my student accom is in Edge Hill, which is a bit of a dodgy area. Though I know there's prostitutes and crack dens around.

    Other Uni cities Ive been to (to see mates), Manchester I reckon was pretty safe (as long as you dont hang round the wrong areas), and the other one is Glasgow which personally I thought was okay.

    Bath is very safe. I live here and have never had any trouble. I think as long as you're streetwise (eg. don't go to dodgy areas, don't be too rowdy, don't answer back to chavs etc) you should be pretty safe in any city. I think a lot of cities such as Manchester and Nottingham get slated safety-wise in the media due to a few dodgy areas that drag the whole city. I think people get so hyped about how 'safe' a place is. If places were really that bad then no one would live there! But yes, Bath is very 'safe'.

    The boring cities... York
    The f**k is York safest, this week one of my mates has had a brick lobbed through his window and another mate got mugged last night on his way to the shops, all within the first week of uni. Plus York is not a boring city at all, it's got great nightlife, great shops and is usually quite a friendly city.
