A luxurious stay

I have had a great experience with heights. We have a great clubhouse. We have free breakfast during the weekdays. Although the breakfast is not that great. The apartment is secure, and all the fittings in the apartment are of excellent quality.

Great with some maybes...

I loved living here, but I was dissuaded to use some of the communal amenities for rowdiness from the other residents. I never used the pool after hearing that some residents were throwing plants and other things in the pool. Additionally, sometimes noise was a problem from the younger tenants. The management was great, but you just had to make sure you followed up if you needed something. Would definitely recommend it.

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.

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 :)

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.

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.
