1 BR value at CTT

Casa Roma is cheaper than the other buildings at CTT because it is older. There is no Central air and the apartment looks older. But you get all the conveniences of CTT - the shuttle picks up at my door, there's a gym on the 4th floor, there's also a bridge on the 4th floor that connects to the rest of CTT and can get you to the larger gym quickly, there's also covered parking under the building which is great for snow (for a fee). Cons of CTT is there are no security cameras, washing machines and dryers suck and take quarters only, and people smoke in their apartments (which apparently isn't punishable). Overall a decent value for the convenience of the shuttle, camaraderie of other classmates being close by in the complex/in the building, and being able to live by yourself.

Better options elsewhere

CTT is good if you want the same pricey housing you had in undergrad. Management is unfriendly and unresponsive.

CTT is overpriced but easy

I lived here all 3 years. The apartments are WAY overpriced, almost NYC rent costs. The older buildings are very old/don't have much storage space. They also often don't have AC (but this can be solved with a window unit). I didn't move because almost all my friends live here, which made getting home after late library nights or going out easier/safer. I also stayed because I have a car and they have covered parking under the buildings (although its expensive - 800/year). It is not the closest option to campus but it is nice to get away from the law school/collegetown area. The gym is nice enough. It's never that full and it has almost everything you need. It is a student apartment complex. Very basic. Does not feel very adultish but it is good enough.

My biggest complaint is that it is extremely overpriced.
A major plus is the shuttle service to the law school.

Loud, but clean/spacious

Pros:
Really, really spacious. I visited almost all of the other buildings (as I'm looking to move for next year) and this was definitely the biggest 2 bedroom I saw.

Gorgeous natural light. I have an apartment that faces the fountain, and wow, the view is beautiful.

HUGE bathroom! It's so big, I don't know what to do with the space!

Cons:
Casa Roma is one of the louder properties with lots of "party people"... as I found out ONCE I moved in. My neighbors are super loud, so sometimes I wake up at 2 or 3 am due to loud music/loud people in the hallway. The walls are SUPER thin, so Casa Roma is definitely not built for sensitive sleepers.

It's BEYOND annoying that I have to pick up my packages at management. No other building has to do this.

Casa Roma Life

Casa Roma is a nice apartment for a budget. You don't get a lot of the amenities that CTT residents may get, but the discount in rent makes up for it. You also get a much larger room for the price you pay. The only gripe I have is that the laundry drying is really slow, but otherwise it is a good place to live.

Good Apartment But Overpriced

The main incentive for paying the CTT rent price is the shuttle to school (which is fantastic) and the gym. I'm willing to pay higher rent for these perks. But the apartment itself doesn't seem any better than my friends apartments in other complexes. Average size. The management can be rude at times, too, in my personal experience. Walls are especially thin-and management doesn't care if you're losing sleep because of it.

Great for Grad Students

The main feature of the apartments are the huge desks. They're perfect for graduate students, with tons of storage and shelving. The building is generally quiet, albeit I personally have bad upstairs neighbors that management refuses to acknowledge (noise cancelling headphones help). Beyond that, the south side of the building has a great view of the fountain which is very pleasant to sleep to. Laundry unit not in apartment is a downside, and there are few laundry facilities within the building that can sometimes be crowded, but not bad.
