Good value but old building

Pros: Very close to Ross, relatively cheap for Ann Arbor

Cons: Its and old building so lots of old building problems, management frequently needs to shut off water to make a repair, do NOT live on the first floor or you will hear the water pipes a lot, but I moved to the fourth floor and have not had problems since.

Forest Plaza

Simple apartment - lots of space, great location close to Ross building, radiator heating, old kitchen, fairly thin walls, the carpeting is old and ripped, and it is hard to fit couches into the apartments due to narrow hallways and small elevators.

Great location but old building

Pros: It is relatively cheap for Ann Arbor and you cannot beat the location (about 5 min walk from Ross). In terms of sq ft you get a good amount of space for your money. If you do not want roommates this is probably your best option without spending a ton.

Cons: It is an old building and has a lot of old building problems. The worst is the water pipes, which are extremely loud once they turn the heat on for the winter (imagine loud banging on the walls in the middle of the night, every night). I have also had several issues with apartment above me leaking and causing water damage, not to mention smaller things like constantly blowing a fuse.

Overall a really good option for the summer, but if you are a light sleeper the water pipes issue makes sleeping here in the winter really challenging.

Great location and space, but absolutely no frills

You can get a good price considering how close it is from Ross and the amount of space available, but don't expect a nice entrance, amenities, or any fancy extras. As you save a good amount on rent, my suggestion is to get nice furniture and make the apartment "looks like yours".

Good value for $

My apartment is huge and adequate and a 5 minute walk from Ross. I’ve had some maintenance issues given the building is old and the radiator is really loud in the winter, but for the price and living alone it’s really a great spot.

Affordable & Close to campus, terrible management

The apt is spacious -- way more room than I need. The building is very old and pipes, toilets, etc. break a lot and there are often repairs that are needed, plus old appliances. Repair people good about responding quickly to issues. How good your experience is largely depends on which apartment space you pick, so choose wisely. On the positive side, it is so close to campus, and is one of the more affordable options for living alone; it's nice to have your own space outside of Ross sometimes. The number one criteria for me was being near campus bc I wanted to spend the least amount of time possible commuting to class during winter, and I wanted to live alone affordably. Will warn that it's on the undergrad side of campus so you'll definitely hear sororities practicing rush songs during the fall, or undergrads cracking open beers and blasting music at 7am on game days, but honestly it's a college town, so I'm not sure how much that's different from anywhere else.

Perfect for living alone but close to school and other Rossers

Old building, but VERY spacious apartments. A ton of Rossers in the building. 3-5 minute walk to campus. Management company is not the best, but the convenience of Forest Plaza makes them bearable.
