Would not recommend Oxford, but unfortunately they own so much of Ann Arbor

I live in a basement apartment and I pay over $1000/month. The rent has gone up about $50 per month since I moved in about 2.5 years ago, with out improving anything in the apartment. Parking is outrageously expensive, $900/year. Although the doors to the building are "locked," packages are constantly being stolen. The property managers genuinely don't seem to care about the residents. I've had problems since moving in, but it is so close/convenient to the law school. There are 2 washers and 2 dryers in the basement that are always broken, so I have resorted to going to a laundromat since my second year living there. Location is ok, it's right by a bunch of frat houses and can get very loud/crazy during football season.

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.

super close to school. on campus and really convenient for someone like me who doesn't have a car (side note: there is a garage here and parking on the street is always available).
Pros: very close to school; food options nearby; 10 min walk to bus; 15-20min walk downtown

Cons: by a lot of fraternities and sororities so loud on football weekends.
Best part is that it's close to Ross and not far from downtown. It can be noisy however on weekends and game days with surrounding undergrad parties (although that died down really quickly once it got cold)!
Very safe and secure neighborhood. There are a couple of frat houses across the street which get noisy only during the football games. Otherwise, excellent neighborhood and location.
There are several restaurants and the hardware store nearby which is very convenient. It's a close walk to Ross and not far from downtown. But, there are several frats in the area. The building is sheltered from the noise but you can still hear them from time to time.
My location is a short walk to Ross, which is especially nice in the winter, and feels very safe. Cons are there are a lot of undergrads and it can get a little loud on weekends. It is also far from downtown Ann Arbor, where many restaurants and stores are.
Unfortunately also close to the fraternities that party ALL day on game day. Grocery stores are a drive or bus ride away, but bars and restaurants on State Street, Packard and South U are all walking distance which is really great.
Super close to Ross which is a plus. Heads up - lots of undergrads nearby, so for 12pm football games get ready to hear the music blasting by 7:30am on Saturdays.
