Best for Grad Students

Great for graduate students, more affordable 9th street option and a strong community.

Well located property

Station 9 is a huge apartment complex on ninth street. Since more than 90% Fuquans stay in / around ninth street area, this is a good location. The rent is on the costlier side for sure, considering that the building / amenities are not the latest. For a 2-year stay, it's a good deal though.

Good social life and convenient location

The location is good - surrounded by some other new apartments and the 24-hours grocery store Harris Teeters. The drive to school is about 10 minutes. You can also take a bus to school. It is easy to find people to share an Uber together for school.

A lot of MBA students stays in Station Nine or nearby. So the social life is really good. But it also makes the rent a bit pricey. I think the utilities and club facilities in Station Nine are basic but they are charging a high price for it.

The apartments are generally very spacious.

Convenient to hang out with friends

Most of the MBA students living in nine street area. It's easier to hang out with friends, schedule meetings and borrowing daily supplement from your friends. H5 bus brings you directly to Fuqua.

Uncertainty at S9 w/ New Management

Station Nine (S9) is in a great area and many people live in the community, greatly raising its value. However, the complex amenities, management service, and apartment fixtures are not really worth the price. There will be new management soon, which plans to update many of the amenities and fixtures, but I don't know the timetable for that to happen, and in the meantime, I expect an increase in rent. There are several other complexes in the area that I would consider before choosing S9, but if you are single and enjoy loudly hanging out with friends, then it might be the perfect place for you.

You get what you pay for

Very good overall, best value in the area. Not nearly as nice or well furnished as Berkshire 9 or Berkshire Main.

Overrated

The prices are overrated, however, this is where the majority of Fuquans live (S9/B9 area). If I had another chance, I would consider looking at the prices at Berkshire Main

Not great, not bad

The best perk of living at S9 is that you will share a complex with many of your classmates. My apartment itself has tons of light and high ceilings, but is a bit dated. If I didn't live here I would live at B9, but as a FY MBA student you can't go wrong at S9.

Expensive for Durham, NC but nice facilities

The facilities are relatively nice and I have enjoyed my time at Station Nine, although I do think the rent is incredibly overpriced. The Clubhouse is a bit small so if you're trying to crank out some work or hang out with friends over coffee - Berkshire Ninth or the Berkshire Main apartment complexes are better suited.

Ninth Street Reviews

111 reviews
Tiny "neighborhood" (does this one street even count as a neighborhood?) but has several key institutions, like supermarket, 5-7 nicer restaurants, 2 bars (both dive-y), a Duke store, a Pure Barre, several cute coffee shops, and random hipster shops. Short walk to Whole Foods, Cocoa Cinnamon, and Duke's East Campus (and Brodie Gym).
Close to 24Hr open Harris Teeter supermarket and many other small restaurants (including the famous Heavenly Buffaloes). There have been in the last two years about 4 assault reports that occurred at the Harris Teeter parking lot.
Most Fuquans live in this area. The Harris Teeter is convenient for walking. 9th Street has a lot of cool stores and restaurants. Easy to get to Fuqua.
Its fine. Nothing special. Just where most of the MBA students stay. Access to grocery store and some shops/eateries on Ninth Street.
Walkable to two grocery stores and countless places to eat. Safe and close to all my classmates. What more could I want?
You're within easy walking distance to stores, restaurants, and other major apartments popular with Fuqua students.
The immediate surrounding area seems to be quite safe, but if you go further, it doesn't look that good.
The 9th Street corridor is really pretty great. You are within walking distance of everything you'd need from a barber and a bank to beer and books. It is probably 5-10% more expensive (between Harris Teeter, apartment, and other shops markup) than other areas of Durham, however it is a great community if you're single and want to socialize.
