Brown St

Good apartment. While it’s an older building with some random radiator noises, it has everything you need (A/C, dishwasher, laundry in building) and great location without the high price of 618 and more low key than the Yard.

Great for the price

The location is great, very close to campus and downtown alike. Our landlord is very responsive and takes care of things when we bring them up. That said, the apartment is relatively small, and walls are thin, so you can hear neighbors a lot. During school, this is fine, since you don't spend a lot of time in the apartment anyway. For the location and to avoid larger apartment complexes like the Yard, this is a great place to live.

Perfect location

The best part about living here is the location. You are 2 minutes to MBAs at 618 and the Yard, a 5 min drive to Woodbury, 15 min walk to Ross, and 10 min walk to downtown Ann Arbor. It's nice to live on a quiet street with mostly MBAs and other grad students. Lots of space!

823 Brown St

Apartment is spacious. Minor cosmetic issues and the building is older, but in very good condition still. Convenient access to Ross and Yard/618 at very affordable price.

Excellent for the price

Can't beat the location. Definitely recommend the split-level unit for extra sunlight. Management (Ali) is very responsive and quick to fix what you complain about

Great location, decent price

The apartment buildings here are a great location (between the yard and the big house), and the price is reasonable. However, you'll have to pay extra for off-street parking and even then management will kick you out of the parking spot on game days. The walls are quite thin, but there's a good MBA community here. It's a mix of couples and singles who want to be near Ross/the yard but who don't want the noise/price.

Good value

Newly renovated apartment with a sizeable kitchen and bedrooms. Great community with 6 units and almost all MBA students. However, the building is old, so shared things like the laundry are a pain. We’ve complained about it to the landlord a few times, but our clothes come out dirty. Overall though, good value for our unit. Great location, although a pain to get anywhere on game days.

Brown Street Review

Brown Street is a great place to live for MBA students. There's a good core group of us in this area, and it's nice to have that community. It's also close to the Yard and 618, where a lot of people live. Additionally, it's pretty close to Ross as well, with about a 15 minute walk. The places are being updated one by one, which is also nice and gives a more modern feel to older apartments.

Super convenient location, spacious apartment, older building

Great location - 15 min walk to Ross, central campus, downtown; 5 min walk to the stadium
Safe building - two doors
Unit - spacious, lots of room in living room/kitchen, but is an older building so it's less updated than other newer buildings
No pets allowed

Living on Brown Street

Best Value in Ann Arbor (In my opinion).

The apartment is clean and well maintained.

Management is exceedingly nice and friendly.

Convenient location to Ross, restaurants, the Yard, the Bus, and the Big House.

You'll hear the band practice and the train sometimes, but it is not as bad as some people make it out to be. I've never been woken up by either.

There were a few problems with the heat at first; however, management brought over space heaters and it was fixed in a few days.

Parking will be filled up on game day, so don't expect to use your car.

Overall, I've very much enjoyed living here.
