Austin is a safe city in almost every regard. Congress Avenue, 6th Street, the market district, warehouse district are all well lit and populated at night. People walk down S. Congress and downtown at night and
university area is considered quite safe for a campus of its size. As any prudent person knows, lock your car, hide the possessions inside and know your surroundings and you'll find to be a generally safe city.
