Berkshire Main Review

Truly enjoy living here while at Fuqua. It's close enough to s9 (3-minute walk) where the majority of my class lives while also having a little separation for my partner and me. The only negative thus far is a little noise from the train which quickly turned into background noise after a week or two. Highly recommend the property overall.

Berkshire Review

Good building. The apartments are very nice and the building is walkable to Duke/Duke Law. The main issue is sometimes they do not take adequate care of the building and could be more proactive with pest control during the summer

Everything Great Except Roaches

Building is ideally located close to 9th Street and campus, the amenities (business center, pool, grills, gym) are great, the leasing office and maintenance are very responsive. However, there are roaches everywhere. Despite repeated pest control, spraying Raid, and placing traps, roaches come into our apartment regularly even though we have a corner apartment on the top floor.

Slightly better space for the money compared to other 9th St options

I chose Bmain because a 1 bedroom here was cheaper than 810 or S9. It also has slightly nicer amenities and is quieter than S9. There aren't as many Fuqua students here, but it hasn't been a problem because S9 (where most students live) is just behind the building. Management is hit or miss, the other day they left a weird passive aggressive note about trash collection on everyone's doors. They also repainted the garage without any notice and threatened to tow people's cars. Other than that though, I'm pretty happy with the space, location, and amenities.

Amazing amenities, space and location

The building is very nice, the gym is very well equipped and the common areas are amazing and include grilling spaces, pool, dog park, business center, etc. it’s very calm and you will be close to B9, S9 and Harry’s teeter (7 minute walk) Many restaurants near by and 10 minute walk to ninth street so you are close enough to where everything happens but far enough to not be in the middle of all the partying.

Berk Main

It’s a very nice place to live, but it is expensive, management is pushy about their improvement projects which are disruptive to daily life, and repairs take a long time.

Close to Duke, nice area

Really nice area and walking distance to Duke (15 mins to med school). Can hear the train go by several times a day, and the noise level depends on what side of the building you’re on. Parking in gated garage below the building with direct access to the buildings (interior doors, feels safe).

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.
