Spacious Apt close to school

This is a great apartment! It is so conveniently located, close to school and right down the street from the Y! Its perfect! The carpet in the hallways is a little dirty and the elevators don't work sometimes but the location is great and the apt itself is very spacious and cozy! They also have a gym downstairs which is super convenient during winters and the Y is right around the corner all other times! Also there's a bunch of good places to eat right nearby! The terrace is really cool as well! Overall wonderful place to live!

My home away from home

I have been living here for almost 3 yrs now and I really like it! The apt is cozy & comfortable! It is conveniently located within walking distance to campus and on the connector route! There's also a bunch of great restaurants and bars located within walking distance from the apt! They have a conveniently located gym on the 1st floor. Though I did like it better when the gym was located on the 16th floor and you had a great view of downtown while you worked out! They have a nice little swimming pool on the terrace, overlooking the Jefferson and me and my girlfriends have had some nice, quiet evenings there with a bottle of wine! The views from the terrace are what I love the most! The apt itself is cozy. Our apt has windows facing Broad St and we don't always get a lot of sunlight in the apt. But for a 1br, its a huge apt with plenty of storage space!

Towers on Franklin..Great Place close to campus

I have been living in this apartment complex for 3 years now and I like it because of its convenience factor! Its close to campus and has an in-building gym! The management has been trying to improve the building considerably lately. It has a very nice terrace with a pool that overlooks the Jefferson and has a very nice view looking out to the river.

Getting around Monroe Ward


Monroe Ward Reviews

4 reviews
Some parts may seem sketchy, but not as much as if you further downtown. It is a very becoming place, and there are lots of young people living around. Plus, it is still in the VCU vicinity, and thus it policed by their police, not only Richmond police. There is a public library around the corner; amazing restaurant, and a famous historical inn.
It is close/basically on VCU campus so those areas aren't too unsafe. However, certain areas are very sketchy. Right behind our apartment feels very unsafe. Lots of restaurants nearby on Broad St.
It's kind of on the border with downtown; but we are surrounded by growing trendy restaraunt scene, city library, and classy Franklin street neighborhood (VCU area with its security). Thus, although there are homeless people walking around, generally, I don't feel unsafe walking by myself in the evening. In short, it's not as dangerous as people may think, but of course it is not perfect.
This isn't the safest of neighborhoods, but it s very conveniently located close to campus and has a bunch of good restaurants, bars and public transit in the vicinity!
