Most colleges and universities try to put on a good face to the rest of the community. After all, in order to exist the higher educational facilities need students to attend. Not all colleges can be located on land grants with pristine, multi-billion dollars estates surrounding it. In the real world, people need college everywhere, including the hood. While almost every major metro has local community colleges within the city itself, these are the top 10 colleges considered in hood locations.
1. University of Hartford
West Hartford, Connecticut
200 Bloomfield Ave, West Hartford CT 06117
While you could end up in worse places, West Hartford is right on the fringe of being a college hood location or just being a less than desirable spot.
2. University of Baltimore
1420 N Charles St. Baltimore, MD 21201
Not everything in Baltimore is bad, but it often seems like it is. The Wire wasn’t joking around when it poked at Baltimore, the drug problem and the issues the city faced in general. There’s a reason why two schools from Baltimore are on this hood college address list.
3. North Carolina Central University
Durham, North Carolina
1801, Fayetteville St. Druham, NC 27701
At least here there is good basketball played not too far away.
4. Morgan State University
1700 E Cold Spring Ln, Baltimore, MD 21251
Another Baltimore spot. Visit the campus and you’ll understand why.
5. New Jersey Institute of Technology
Newark, New Jersey
150 Bleeker St, Newark, NJ 07102
Tech colleges don’t have big campuses, so the buildings are forced anywhere. Newark is not the greatest spot.
6. Washington University in St. Louis
St. Louis, Missouri
1 Brookings Dr, St. Louis, MO 63130
Just a stone’s throw from Ferguson, this part of St. Louis is rather rough.
7. Temple University
1801 N Broad St, Philadelphia, MA 19122
Temple is a good school. The neighborhood is not.
8. Southern University and A & M College
Baton Rouge, LA
801 Harding Blvd, Baton Rouge, LA 70813
At least LSU is close by.
9. Wayne State University
42 W Warren Ave, Detroit, MI 48202
Midtown Detroit. Enough said.
10. Texas Southern University
3100 Cleburne St, Houston, TX 77004
Houston has some nice spots to check out. This is in the hood of the city.
