I am not an agent, and believe when I say you DO NOT want to live in the Hilltop area. If it's cheap rent it's usually a bad area.

Rentals near campus are always expensive. If you drive and don't mind a little drive I would go to the suburbs!

A good real estate agent is very familiar with the neighborhoods where he or she shows properties. But because of legislation called the Fair Housing Act, the agent can't legally share all of that information with you.
I advise looking at the crime statics for the area. Trulia even provides this info, scroll down on the listing and click the crime tab.
Just use your own judgement, and feel free to call with questions or more info on your real estate needs.

Your best bet is to try http://www.crimereports.com . It shows a map with pins marking all of the police reports and what they were for.
