No. Neither UW or SU are in "good" locations, unless you overlook crime. Even then, UW is far superior as its right on Lake Washington and that opens up a lot for the spring and summer (canoozing).
Both are in fine locations. Seattle is not Camden. Don't talk on your phone or listen to your ipod while walking after dark. Put your laptop in a closed bag so you can't tell there's a laptop in there. In other words, act like you live in a city.
UW's campus is gorgeous. SU's campus is less so.
Act like you live in the ghetto, and you'll be fine. There are more rapes than they let on.
Although getting the usual armed robbery, break-in, or mugging alert is always comforting.
Here's a link to Seattle U's Clery-Act-required report on violence on and around campus: (down below). 0 reported rapes on campus in the past 3 years. 0 reported rapes off-campus in the past 2 (no data for 2008). Actual statistics are better than you saying "there are more rapes than they let on."
(I have no doubt that there are rapes on campus, but they are not getting reported. By comparison, the UW had 10 rapes reported in the past few years.)
