Dodgy Areas for living in York!Watch
I am about to start looking for accomodation in the York area (probably around a mile away from campus). Please can you warn me of any dodgy kinda areas! I've heard Tang Hall is a bit dodgy at times?
Would appreciate all opinions
I used to live on Hull Road and that was fine, and had some friends in Badger Hill too. Badger Hill's a pretty nice area.
However there are certain areas that have a negative image. Tang Hall is one and Clifton is another.
Just try to stay near the city centre and you'll have a great time
I would recommend Fulford though, as lots of students live there and there is an Aldi and it's generally a lovely area. Close to the river too and about 20mins walk from campus.
There are some parts that aren't quite as pleasant, sure, but it's a relative thing. Pretty much, York is wonderful and any issues will be the exception to the rule.
Plus, there are loads of nice student houses, and it is close to the university with great bus links into town.
I've been to a few of the student houses around the burton stone lane area before though and they seem generally fine.. someone said they had their house broken into once though out of term time other than that though I guess it's alright.
