Excellent choice for Duke Students living near west campus

I have stayed here for almost two years. It is a townhouse with 2b and 2b upstairs, and living room and kitchen and another 0.5 bathroom downstairs. My place is owned by an old English couple who are very very nice! All of the utilities and furniture are included. It is an excellent choice for families, couples, friends living near west campus. There is a bus stop just around the corner and walking distance is 20 minutes walk.

Great Value

Blue Crest has the best value among the nearby neighbourhoods. One thing need to point out is it doesn't have a whole management agency but owned by individual. It is very important to find a good landlord. Your landlord largely determines your renting experience. I am lucky to have a very nice landlord and he cleans the apartment throughly before we move in, even gives us a microwave and toaster as gifts.

Privacy guaranteed with lots of space

Its a two story town house, giving lots of privacy. The living room and kithchen is on the first floor and there's two bedrooms on the second floor, bathrooms for each bedrooms, and another bathroom in the first floor. High ceiling for the first floor and spacious kitchen. Great place to have pets. The drawback is that there is no gym and that there isn't another security system for the gates but I had no problem with that so far.

Erwin - LaSalle Reviews

123 reviews
There are food options nearby and most graduate students live in the neighborhood which makes planning social events easy. Not always the safest neighborhood but you always have a group of fellow students looking out for you.
Frequent crime reports.
I myself have woken up at night due to clearly audible shots fired (maybe 1mile away) and once reported a shooting after coming home late around 3AM which turned out to have happened at Duke Manor.
Intrusion may happen, therefore keep the doors locked.
Also, I would try to avoid a 1st floor apartment with direct access through the patio.
The neighborhood is really unsafe and you'll often hear about people get robbed on gunpoint on LaSalle street. There is literally nothing in the area, except a few restaurants at Erwin Street and Krogers which is 15 minute walk from the Heights.
It is highly recommended to not walk around in this area post sunset.
Great and safe neighborhood - quite close to most useful and day to day necessities. I'd say if you're commuting to West Campus it makes most sense for you to stay here!
Living in Erwin-Lasalle is very close to Duke University West campus schools such as Engineering, Environment, Graduate, Medicine.
Close to school. Quiet enough. Duke neurology and Millennium Hotel are nearby. Though no restaurants or stores nearby.
The neighbourhood is safe during the day, but make sure to stay indoors and not wander during the night.
Campus Walk is well located both in terms of proximity to both the campus and basic amenities. However, after 6 pm at nights, the neighbourhood gets very lonely which makes it all the more unsafe to venture.
Recently there have been many break-ins in and around apartments in the neighbourhood, although no one was harmed.
