Great place to live!

I have lived at University Park for a year and a half now, and in my opinion it is one of the better places to live in Ithaca for students in terms of value and price. Many of the other apartments near campus charge much more but do not have as many amenities. Included in the rent is a spacious floor plan, walk-in closet, and in-unit washer/dryer. It is a bit further away from Cornell's campus (about a 10 minute drive or bus ride), but I personally enjoy living somewhere that is a bit quieter and away from Collegetown. If you do not have a car, it is right next to a bus stop. It is a quieter place and I have never had any issues with noise.

I will add that before I moved in, this apartment was advertised as having a gym and pool, both of which have been closed the entire time I've lived there (probably due to Covid). So if those are amenities you're looking for, it doesn't actually have them. I also had some issues with the management when I first moved in (the wifi wasn't set up like it was supposed to be and I had to go to Spectrum myself to fix it). However, I believe they've had a change in management somewhat recently and have been a lot more responsive since then.

Fine for other Cornell Students

It's affordable and sizeable, but that's about it. Hasn't been updated in years, I've had packages stolen from my front door, and the gym/pool advertised haven't reopened since COVID. It's incredibly far from campus and downtown, and there's only 1 bus that only comes once per hour every day.

Good Place to Live

The rental price is reasonable (maybe a bit lower than normal years due to low occupancy rate this year).

Quiet as long as you have a good roommate.

The outlook of houses may seem old. The inside is fine.

It is in Lansing. The bus stop is right in the front, but may take some time to get to campus (20-30 min).

Surprisingly good value if you don't mind the distance from campus

Has really great square footage for the price (710-ish?). Has a small patio too. Technically has a pool and gym but they have been closed a long time. Near the airport so its far-ish from campus but right on the route 32 bus line so not a big problem. Management doesn't ever bother us which I like.

Quiet and beautiful community

1. Location: convenient. Walking distance to Ithaca Tofu, 5 mins drive to Target and Tops, 15 mins bus to Sage
2. Property management: very responsible, quick response and great service. Fast snow removal!
3. Apartment: new modeled, very big and bright. Heaters worked well during winter
4. Community: Cornell students and professionals, very quiet and safe. Free parking.

Not bad for the price, large apartments

I don't currently live here but it was a very OK apartment in Ithaca. It was certainly one of the best in terms of location, size, and price combined. It is right near the mall, right near a bus stop, right near some running trails, and a pretty good size. There are a lot of children in these complexes too and there are a few playgrounds and an elementary school all within walking distance.

Great price if you are able to drive to school

Apartment is good. Dated but sufficient. As long as you are able to get a decent parking situation near Cornell, the overall cost of living here is very cheap for the school year. 10-month leases available upon request. Nicer than some of the slumlord apartments in Collegetown. Real fireplace.
