That depends on what college you are commuting to and what type of property you are looking for. This is a quiet neighborhood that is quite removed from the city and parties would probably disturb the neighbors easily. If you aren't the partying types then its an amazingly peaceful view property.

No, it's not a good place for college students life to live there. It looks too relaxing and a little far from campus community.

Hi Herzogr,

I'll assume you're UCLA or Santa Monica College students based on proximity to both campuses. If not, then I'll make the quick note that it's not near any other campuses.... so I'll lend my advice as both a resident who lives in the area and a father of a UCLA student:

the good

High rollin. Who wouldn't want to live in Bel Air during their college years, right? Great space, incredible views, very remote to keep you from those pesky on campus distractions (translation, no excuses not to study!) Again assuming you're at UCLA it should be a short trip to campus at most times.

the bad

Roscomare is like a freeway and is very secluded from the city. There are no sidewalks and the roads are narrow, there are many hills and the road to campus winds a bit. (translation, forget walking to campus and polish your safety skills if riding a bike.) I'd highly suggest a scooter to get you to and from campus.

Another note - traffic. early morning beginning @ 7:30am out the West Gate and up Roscomare from the West Gate in the early afternoon. This is the only way in or out so if Roscomare is backed up you're out of luck, unless you drive around the mountain.

There are a lot of students living in or around this area and overall it's very convenient to campus, but takes some planning to really make it work.

Good luck in school!

If you're asking whether not it's a safe area, yes, it is. It's in Bel Air, one of L.A.'s most exclusive neighborhoods. And if the college students are going to UCLA, it would be an easy commute for them.

I hope this helps. Feel free to contact me if you'd like more info.

This looks like a great place for three college students to live, within a few miles of UCLA. There are three bedrooms and plenty of space.

Please let me know if you would like me to schedule an appointment for you to view the property at no cost. I am a real estate agent with Rodeo Realty and I live just a few minutes away from this property. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have.

Best Regards,
