Great central location and kindest staff in Durham!

I moved into the UA Durham location in early September and have really enjoyed the community. My three favorite things are: 1) Location - It's super easy to get downtown and the 9th street. There are also great running locations nearby! 2) Charm - The building is older, built around the 1930s. While this lends itself to older appliances (radiators) and wear, I appreciate how well it was built. This is especially true in comparison to some former "new" apartment buildings I've experienced in the past where everything breaks way too easily. I also like having wooden floors and beautiful counter tops. 3) The management team/leasing office: All of the folks I work with are helpful, kind and attentive. Every work order I have submitted has been followed up with in less than 24 hours and usually includes a note from the manager. They also put together some awesome monthly events and try to engage tenants with community activities and festive celebrations. After just one month, I was comfortable to renew my lease for another year. I think that speaks loudly to the great experience I have had thus far!

Property Manager at University Apartments - Durham responded to this review

Thank you for the wonderful feedback! We hope you continue to enjoy calling University Apartments home!


Bad Quality

The hallways are not maintained. I have seen spider webs with roaches caught in them that have been there for weeks. If you can afford a better apartment then go for it.

Great location, great price, and superb staff

Great location and very affordable! I definitely recommend this place to anyone. Despite being close to a busy road, I had no issues with noise. It was close to everything; a 5-minute bus ride to Duke and a 10-minute drive to everything else. The management is superb. They are very friendly and helpful. I had to move out due to COVID, and they made the whole process to leave the lease very easy. It is an old building so it comes with some disadvantages like run-down bathrooms but overall the apartment itself is great. Plenty of storage and kitchen space. Lots of windows. Plus, I only had to pay for internet and energy in terms of utilities so the utility bill was very small too! Overall, a great place.
