Good Apartment but "Meh" Building

I live in a 1 bed, 1 bath apartment near Packard and State. It's about a 3-5 minute walk to Ross and about a 10-15 minute walk downtown, so it's very easy to get places. While it is close to the undergrads/frats, noise isn't an issue.

Overall, the apartment has been good. It's between 700-800 sq feet, which is more than enough space for one person, and given that the rent is less than 1k, it is a good value. The apartment is two levels: the kitchen and main room are on the first level and the bedroom and bathroom are on the second level. Kind of weird, but it works.

There are a mix of grad students/MBAs and undergraduates who live in the building.

The biggest downsides are that the kitchen is very small and the building is old so the exterior hallway has an interesting odor (but that doesn't carry through to my apartment). Oxford isn't the most responsive or organized management company, but the maintenance crew is terrific - super responsive and very friendly.

Good location but not so good management

Apartment is 6 mins away walking distance. There are also few food options available, close to IM building, and a bus stop. However, Oxford company is not-so accomodating and rent will increase every year. Maintenance is very responsive and good but the washer/dryer breaks all the time. Giving it a good rate only because of convenience.

Close to campus

It's only a 6-7 minute walk from Ross and the apartment is decent. Rooms can be furnished or unfurnished for the same price, so it was easy when I moved from out of state.

Value for money

Based on the proximity to Ross, I feel it offers a no-frills experience. The place comes furnished with bar stools, couches and a twin bed and closet

My experience

It's been a good experience so far, as the units in this building are fully furnished and make it an easy moving experience.

Great Location at an Affordable Price

More like dorm living but the price and location cannot be beat.

Great Location, rundown building, responsive maintenance

Oxford manages several properties but doesn't have adequate manpower in their office. Getting anything administrative done takes a long time and several follow-up calls. However, the location to Ross is very good, even though the inside of the building is quite run down. I live in a 4 bdrm/2 bath with roommates. Two people share one bathroom. The kitchen is small, and the fridge is definitely too small. They could have placed a larger one in the space. There is no A/C on the first floor (which is a problem in the months of Aug-Sept (maybe Oct) but there are individual units upstairs in the 3 bedrooms. There is heat throughout, but it's electric. It comes with 1 parking spot, so 1 roommate pays more for a slightly larger room and parking spot. We have had several maintenance issues, but that staff is very responsive.

Decent, but older

The building is less than 5 minutes from Ross and about 10-15 from downtown. The apartment is a good size but the kitchen is very small and the building is on the older side.
