Best option for MBAs

If you're an MBA, there's no question about how convenient Baity is. You don't need to carpool to school, since you are a few minutes away by foot. Say you have class in the morning and an interview in the afternoon, you don't need to ware a suit all day, you can just go home to change. You're also near the UNC buses routes and have access to the P2P van.
Life is easy in Baity, and the value you get for your money is second to none in the area.
The only bad thing is that there's nothing near to it, besides school.

Mason Farm Apartments

Could not possibly be any closer to the Kenan-Flagler Business School (3 min walk to class). Building is secure 24/7 with electronic key and all utilities to include internet and cable are included in the monthly rent. Because the complex is not located on a bus line, all residents can call the P2P service on campus after 7pm and receive a free can pick-up which takes you to Franklin Street.

Inhuman leasing office staff

Location, value and the neighborhood are all perfect except the inhuman leasing office staff. They don't take letters mailed to your apartment if the recipient is not on your lease, even if the recipient is your significant other or your parents, no matter how important those letter are. And to add someone onto your lease requires a lot of procedures. You may need a lawyer or a notary. Even if you told them, due to time constraint, could you just make one exception? They said no, and still mail the letters back to the sender. Their rational is, we want to protect our tenants. We don't want our tenants to get letters they don't want. Plus, our systems only allow us to take letters with recipients on the lease. And if they accidentally signed on your package, and if you ask, "why would you sign a package that doesn't belong to you?" Their response is, "we don't have time to check the recipient's name!!!"
I didn't see any leasing office act in such an inhuman and rude way like this one. Not sure if it is because the office is managed by the school, so it is more bureaucratic or what.

Baity Hill at Mason Farm Road

For a graduate student looking to avoid the stress and headache of finding a place to live, look no further than Baity Hill. It's graduate student housing that has everything you need, and nothing you don't. All utilities are included in the rent, and it's about a two (2) minute walk to Kenan Flagler Business School. The apartments are clean, quiet, offer plenty of light, have decent (perfectly functional but not the most modern) appliances, and are very secure. The maintenance staff always responds very quickly (although I haven't had to use them much). Overall, it's a no brainer if you are looking for convenience and affordability.

One big bonus - UNC offers free shuttle service to Baity Hill residents to and from Franklin Street (and other places around town). So you also save a bunch on taxi fares/Uber.

Close to the School

Baity is awesome. Clean, affordable, safe, laundry room is very cheap and easy to use at $1/.50 per load. There are a good number of MBAs here as well.

Location and price make this a great choice

I love living here. It's about 8 minutes to walk to the b-school. It's not the nicest place around, and you'll probably hear your neighbors more than you like, but you'll also get to know them. This is a very social place to live, if you're the right person. I am married and have 3 kids (tight squeeze), and this place feels super safe. Low traffic, playground on site, and tons of friends to play with. Elementary school (for my oldest) is awesome. Families get preference in getting spots, with leftovers going to international students (single, roommates). Maintenance responds promptly when you have issues. You can pay rent with a credit card - I'm cashing in on the miles! No smoking allowed anywhere near the buildings (since they're on campus) and no pets allowed.
Overall, totally worth it.

Best for First Year and Exchange Students

Great place if you need to be just a short walk away from the school. Don't have to drive to school so that's a big plus and you are still on campus. Definitely recommended. Apartments are very clean and professionally managed and are great value for your money.

Baity Hill Reviews

10 reviews
Baity Hill accommodates singles, couples, and families, and the neighborhood is very diverse. There are common areas to meet within the community, and you have great access to different areas of campus. The area is very safe at all hours, with minimal noise. Grocery stores are just a couple of miles away - you can get there by driving, convenient public transit, or the UNC shuttle service.
Neighborhood feels super safe. Little kids will like the playground on-site. Lots of friends for them to play with. Elementary school (Glenwood) is awesome, if not old. Plenty of community events to meet people and for kids to play. I like it here, and recommend it to most people.
Very quiet. You walk to school in no time. Getting to Franklin street means taking the (free) P2P or Uber/drive if you are going anywhere else.
You'd heat the occasional screams of a child in the hallway of from next door but where won't you... Its a generally calm neighborhood with respectful and polite residents (predominantly other graduate students)
Family oriented so quiet, but free shuttle provided to take you to Franklin Street.
Safe place for families. No through traffic, and a small playground.
Awesome place, however it is not close to any type of commerce
Pros:
close to business school;
safe area;
quiet;
lots of sunshine; Cons: no nearby grocery stores; a bit boorish management.
