Nice facility with poor management

Rooms and amenities are very nice, but we have had far too many issues with management. The location is good, but the train is noisy.

Nice location, good quality of apartment and common areas

Very nice complex with good quality of both the apartments and the common areas. Location is great (5 minutes walking distance from B9/S9 and 9th street, 7 minutes driving distance from Fuqua). The complex is close to a train crossing but it didn't bother my studying and sleeping experience

Really enjoyed

Though there are not as many MBAs as we would like, apartment is great, management has been so easy to work with, commute is easy.

Average Apt - overpriced

This apartment knows that they have business from students and therefore charges more than rent should be in Durham, NC. The management never wants to take responsibility for anything that happens in the apartment. The apartments are spacious and there is light depending on which side of the building you are on, but it is also right next to an active train and has pest control problems. Its not a terrible apartment but I would recommend living elsewhere.

Nice finishes and space to live, management sometimes slow

Overall, I like living in Bmain. I have not had any bugs (roaches) in my apartment, which is on the 2nd floor; I would suggest not living on the ground level, as that seems to be worse wrt roaches. The common spaces are lovely. Printing is somewhat frustrating, as they use an outside vendor and if there is no paper on a weekend, you have to wait until the next week to hopefully have paper. Walls are thin, as is the case in any newer building in my experience. Packages easy to pick up and food delivery never an issue. DO NOT live on the side facing the train. I live in the original building, parallel to the train tracks, not facing the train, and I think it's generally brighter/nicer than the other, larger building. I seem to have taller ceilings than than units in the other building as well.

Bad management

Poor management, cockroach issue than management poorly handles, amenities are not always working

Over priced

Right by the train, which is very disturbing and too loud for anyone to get used to it. The train runs all day and throughout the night. This was a point that the management lied about when I signed my lease.

Ninth Street Reviews

264 reviews
Neighborhood has been great. Haven't been commuting to school all that frequently for obvious reasons, but takes less than 10 minutes to do so. I can grab everything I need and meet with friends all within walking distance. Durham could use more street lights in general, but in terms of safety, I think 9th street is your best option!
Best place to live hands down. Next to the supermarket, so many food options and many complexes in the area. Near downtown and Duke. Great if you’re new in town because it is super safe. Perfect if you have a car because the only downside is that depending on what Duke school you’re in it might not be walking distance.
Ninth Street is super walkable and majority of Fuquans live in the area. Definitely worth it to pay a little more to live in walking distance of so many classmates. Plus the restaurants on Ninth Street are great, and a short walk (~3 mins) to East Campus to use the walking trail!
Everything is close: other complexes like S9, B9; bars like flying bull, the tavern, supermarkets like Harris Teeter or Whole Foods, East campus hiking route.

You can get to the school by bus (45 mi) or by car (10 min). Carpooling is very commom.
Neighborhood is fine. All the Duke grad students live in the same area so it makes for a pleasant student community, and there are some decent restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance.
Harris Teeter and Whole Foods are right nearby, and the area feels generally safe. 5 min from the highway if you need to drive outside of Durham. ~10 min to get to the WaDuke/Science Drive.
The 9th St. neighborhood is great because it is within walking distance to all of the shops and restaurants on 9th St. It could be better if it were closer to Fuqua and/or downtown Durham.
All the restaurants around the 9th street area are within 5 mins walk from the complex. The campus is an 8-10 minute drive. Downtown Durham is also an 8-10 minute drive away.
