I don’t live there, but I know from my recent home search that you can get heat maps of crimes (with police blotter descriptions) on Trulia.com if you have an address in the area to search (or you could click on a house/condo for sale listing in the area and find it that way). It really helped us figure out where to avoid!

@labmouse:  Ohhh, my ex bf’s sister and Brother-In-Law lived out there while he was attending law school! I’d say it isn’t bad, a lot of grad/doctoral/law students. It’s right off the interstate and close to basically everything you’d need. Have you tried PadMapper? It’s a really great app to find apartments.

A friend of ours lives near there.  It seemed safe and reasonably convenient.  To echo Marisa- she was a grad student.

What is your husband’s specialty?

Darling Husband and I lived in Coralville for about a year while I interned at a U of Iowa facility. We lived off of 22nd ave. Close enough to the mall, but not so close we had to deal with the traffic. It is a really nice area, I kind of miss it sometimes 🙂 Iowa City has a pretty decent bar scene, but I wouldn’t want to live downtown. PM me if you want any more specific location info/recommendations 🙂 You will enjoy it there, I’m sure!
