Great Location

Great location for Johnson students, less than 5 min walk to Breazzano and about 10-15 min walk to Sage. Also close to the engineering quad. Very close to food and stores in Collegetown. Close (but pricy) parking options, but be sure to rent early if you have a car as spaces do sell out. Can be a bit loud on north/street side

Overall Pretty Solid

Overall its a good place to live. It is close to the engineering quad and to some of the dining halls which is nice. It is fairly well maintained. They could take out the trash more often and the hallways often smell bad, but the rooms are fine. I would get a room far away from the trash room to be safe.

Close to campus!

The best part about this apartment is that it's located very close to the law school. However, it's somewhat overpriced considering how small it is.

Pros and Cons of Collegetown Center

I liked the location of the apartment. It is located close to the South side of the campus (e.g. Engineering Quad, Arts Quad, McGraw tower). It is also very convenient to live here because there are nearby grocery stores (e.g. 7-11), and nearby restaurants (e.g. Collegetown Bagels). The rental company is located down the street, a few minutes walk from the apartment.

There is concierge available at the front desk of the lobby, throughout most parts of the day. You can pick up package at the front desk. They can also borrow you a cart where you can use, for example, when moving in or for groceries.

However, the main downside of this apartment to me is the not so new furnitures within the room. You can tell from the styles and the stains on the furnitures that they are of some age.

For those who are sensitive to sound, this might not be the best place to live in. The walls don’t seem to be sound proof. You can hear the noises of your neighbors (e.g. playing music with speakers) and noises from the road outside (e.g. cars driving by).

The internet fee is not included in the rent. You will need to pay a one-time fee at the start of your rental period, after a free trial period, and will need to bring your own router for Wi-Fi.

Quiet

I like it but I also hate it.The bus is convenient as is the gym and study rooms. Caveat with the study rooms is that it is very rare that the area is quiet

Good location, but expensive

CTC is very close to law school, so it would say that its location is perfect. However, it is an old building with thin wall. If your neighbor is a noisy person, you might be stressed out a lot.

Location is great. Everything else is Ok!

The location can't be beat. The front desk is awesome and great at collecting packages and helping you with whatever you need. The rooms are ok, and the rental company is just OK too.
