Off-Campus Housing

A photo of manna manna
I'm exploring the on and off campus housing in Victoria BC, as I hope to attend UVic. I was hoping someone would be able to tell me which would be more beneficial, as well as the costs and safety of Victoria's neighbourhoods.

Some background info: I come from a small city of 10,000 people in Saskatchewan and rarely travel to larger areas, certainly not alone.

Victoria's pretty safe, unless you get run over by some senior who's gone blind and refuses to give up his license.

LOL Victoria is soooo safe, the ONLY issues we have are with drugs. Around UVic is probably the most student friendly area (I know, obvious right:P) and that's Saanich. Nothing in Victoria is inexpensive regarding housing, but student oriented housing is close to UVic

Thank you for your help! Are there any areas that are particularly bad for drugs or is it an all around thing?

Ya Victoria is super safe so don't worry and I don't think it counts as a "big city" it's not that big is it? compared to Vancouver
