The Heights with their good and bad sides

In general the housing at the Heights is not bad. The rooms and kitchens are nice and you'll have plenty of space. You'll also certainly find a lot of other Duke and especially Fuqua and Duke Law students. Some ammenities, such as the coffee bar, the awesome pool and the BBQ area are really cool about the Heights.
However, I think that the rent is highly overpriced.
After a while of living here you will see that a few things become annoying, such as if for no obvious reason the garbage would not be picked up. Also, lately a few incidents of strangers roaming around the property have been reported. The area around the Heights (Duke Manor) is sketchy at night and I would recommend to be cautious when walking after dark given criminal incidents have been reported before.
If you're ok with the above-mentioned conditions and look for a fun place that can be made a cozy home, then the Heights will be a good choice for your time in Durham!

Great housing with new kitchen and up-to-date bathrooms. The only problem is cockroaches...we've found more than our fair share even with having the apartment spray for them

Pros/Cons

Pros: Great buildings, location, and amenities.

Cons: Although close to campus, it is a sketchy location (one break in, etc.). Awful managers that are extortionists and hate college kids.

Home for MMS

Like:
- A lot of people from MMS. Some undergrads and PHD.
- Nice pool with BBQ.
- Relatively safe place. I feel me safe both outside and inside
- Clean and a very few insects.

Dislike:
- Price
- GYM is small and doesn't have machines except for cardio
- Poor breakfast. I would suggest to bring more snacks instead
- No adjust for AC or HEAT

Overall great some small problems now and then

Living in Heights is mostly great - it's close to school and most of my classmates in the program. Their service staff are also responsive. However, my roommate did experience unfixed continuous water leakage problem for a few months.

Nothing special; just "average"

Expensive, but convenient if you're in the MMS program. It's about a 6 minute drive to Fuqua. The only reason I chose the Heights over other places, was that most of the MMS lives here, so it's convenient for hanging out, carpooling, and for team meetings. We usually meets in the team rooms in the club house that are open 24/7. However, other than that, there are other places that are nearly the same distance to Fuqua (Lofts and Trinity Commons, for example) that offer better amenities for the same price. The gym at the heights is small, basic, and always packed. The pool is okay; but closes at dawn. The club house doesn't have much going on (no printer, no game room, very basic coffee machine, no snack bar), so the other apt complexes are much better as far as amenities. Maintenance is good and fast. Generally quiet and peaceful. I live facing the pool and still never had issues with loud noises when I need to study. Bryan at the leasing office is great, helpful and personable; Adaisha is horrible and has the personality of a piece of paper. I live in a basic 1/1 and the apt size is decent, but there's no storage other than your closet. (No place to even store a vacuum cleaner, for example!) I can't speak to the apt size/features of the other neighborhoods nearby, because I've only been in their common areas. There are no shops, restaurants or grocery stores walking distance to the LaSalle area in general, which I don't like. This whole area is kind of dead... you can't just walk and get food next door. Looking back, I'd live in the 9th street area. It's lively, there's a lot more going on, Harris Teeter is right there, many cute restaurants, shops, etc. I didn't even consider it when I moved to Durham, because I thought 9th street was "far", but it really isn't! If you have a car it's only a 9 minute drive from Fuqua (a mile farther than the Heights). Living at the heights is just "meh" for what you pay, and the cons (or more like, lack of anything special or that makes it stand out) outweighs the pro of living in the same building as your friends/team. You can always come here for meetings and to hang out, then go back home to your way nicer apartment complex at Trinity, Lofts, or 9th Street! Hope this helps :)

Very nice apartment close to Fuqua

The newest apartment-only four years. It has nice environment and decorations. Vey clean and organized. Elevators are new and convenient. Only thing is that leasing office is not very helpful when you need them.

Erwin - LaSalle Reviews

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.
Campus Walk has Belmont and Lofts close by which have a park and pool, so it's a pretty walk down the lane. The Millenium hotel is also close-by so that's a plus. There is also a set of eateries and a spa down the lane.

But the thing that makes Campus Walk ideal for me is proximity to the bus stop and the campus. There is not many non-students here, so when all the students know and interact with each other, it feels nice.

I haven't heard of too many mugging or break-in incidents yet, so it's a relatively safe neighbourhood.
The complex that the Belmont is in is very nice. There are speed bumps for safety, plenty of parking, and the fact that it is gated makes me feel extra secure. The only thing that I don't like about the surrounding area is that people cross the busy street all of the time, and at all hours of the day in order to get to the bus. During the day isn't as big of a problem, but there are no crosswalks and at night it is very hard to see people in the street since it is curvy and poorly lit.
The Belmont is one of the nicer properties in the area. I didn't think the places across the street were as good. They are probably about 30% Duke people and the rest are regular Durham residents. If you go further down LaSalle, it is less safe. The apt complex next to the Belmont is a bit sketchy.
The neighborhood feels very safe. When I first moved in, management sent out a note that two cars had been stolen from the garage, which seemed concerning but I heard that the cars had been left unlocked or something to that effect. I am careful about locking my car in general and have never felt any issues around safety in this neighborhood. It is quite convenient to have a few restaurants/UPS in the adjacent complex.
Next door to plaza with Chipotle, TGIF, UPS, and several other restaurants. Very short walk to another plaza with more restaurants and a wine/cider bar. 20-minute walk to class or to the hospital or to just about any other University amenity. Quiet! Bus stop very close by (though I've never used it). Occasional homeless beggars in plaza next door. Not a big Fuqua social scene here, though (but you can always change that!). A professor told my mother that this is the only neighborhood he would want his daughter to live in had she gone to Duke (for safety reasons primarily).
The close neighborhood is very safe with all the other appartments nearby. Further up the road towards Kroger, it seems less safe. I have never experienced any trouble, but there are always some strangers just standing next to the road, which might make some people worried.
This neighborhood is directly across the street from campus. It's also right next to a plaza with lots of food options - Chipotle, TGIF, Jimmy Johns, etc. There's a bus stop right by the complex, which can be a convenient way to get around Durham.
