Very Spacious

More space and nicer character than S9 for much less money, but easy access when you want to go to parties, etc. Updated appliances and new flooring. Beautiful windows, lots of entertaining space. Love being close to Harris Teeter and Whole Foods. H5 bus has a stop if you don't bring a car.
Giant windows bring in a lot of light at certain times of day, but the interior rooms are not well lit, and there is no overhead light in the bedrooms, so you need a lot of lamps. Kitchen prep space is a bit cramped. There are some Duke seniors, but most of the building is grad students or professionals, so very few loud parties. Overall great place to live.

Erwin Mill's is soooo much better than S9 or B9

The apartments are massive, tons of natural light, hardwood floors, tall ceilings, and they are closer to 9th street. I lived at S9 first year, and it is definitely acceptable but it is probably the biggest scam of the apartments in the area, my apartment at Erwin Mills is twice the size and only an extra 75$ a month. The reason everyone stays at S9 is because everyone lives at S9, which is nice but I don't think it is worth the premium to stay there.

Erwin Mills vs. Station 9 (S9)
Pros:
-No parking garage - faster to come and go and had no issues with security (unlike S9 that had homeless people living in peoples cars in the parking garage)
-No gym but close to Brodie (S9 gym is pretty terrible, gross, and dank)
-No valet trash - but it is easy to take bags to trashcan/recycle once a week (don't have to pay 25$ a month)
-The place feels like home, instead of a dorm
-No pool, (you can walk over to S9 or B9 for the couple months you are here when the pools are open)
-Management is fast and responsive (At S9 I had a leak coming from behind my washer that covered the entire kitchen area and almost went into the carpet of the living room, I shut off the valve and called management they said to just get some towels and mop it up and they will have someone come fix it on Monday, this was a Friday.)
-No bugs, which is impressive for a place of this size (S9 had a few large spiders, lots of silverfish, and a few roaches).

Cons:
Thin neighboring walls, overall this wasn't much of a problem because MBA's keep pretty long hours anyway, but could be an issue as there are a lot of Duke undergrads in the complex.

Great alternative to S9 and B9

Loft style apartments, brick walls, old mill building converted to apartments. Most residents are in other graduate programs.

Cons: no amenities (gym, pool etc)

Ninth Street Reviews

111 reviews
Tiny "neighborhood" (does this one street even count as a neighborhood?) but has several key institutions, like supermarket, 5-7 nicer restaurants, 2 bars (both dive-y), a Duke store, a Pure Barre, several cute coffee shops, and random hipster shops. Short walk to Whole Foods, Cocoa Cinnamon, and Duke's East Campus (and Brodie Gym).
Close to 24Hr open Harris Teeter supermarket and many other small restaurants (including the famous Heavenly Buffaloes). There have been in the last two years about 4 assault reports that occurred at the Harris Teeter parking lot.
Most Fuquans live in this area. The Harris Teeter is convenient for walking. 9th Street has a lot of cool stores and restaurants. Easy to get to Fuqua.
Its fine. Nothing special. Just where most of the MBA students stay. Access to grocery store and some shops/eateries on Ninth Street.
Walkable to two grocery stores and countless places to eat. Safe and close to all my classmates. What more could I want?
You're within easy walking distance to stores, restaurants, and other major apartments popular with Fuqua students.
The immediate surrounding area seems to be quite safe, but if you go further, it doesn't look that good.
The 9th Street corridor is really pretty great. You are within walking distance of everything you'd need from a barber and a bank to beer and books. It is probably 5-10% more expensive (between Harris Teeter, apartment, and other shops markup) than other areas of Durham, however it is a great community if you're single and want to socialize.
