Great property with (generally) helpful staff/maintenance

"The Morgan Reserve" (formerly Springs of Chapel Hill) is the sister community to Morgan Station (formerly Alta Springs). The Reserve has upgraded finishes as well as its own pavilion with grills, TV, and fireplace. The property has been a great place to live. They usually host ~3 community events per month (taco night, Chick Fil A breakfast, yoga, etc.). Convenient to both Chapel Hill and Durham. Very minor maintenance issues have been attended to promptly. Our only real issue has been with one particular staff member

Great place to live

Springs of Chapel Hill is the sister community to Alta Springs, where many first year MBA's live. "Springs" is tucked inside the Alta community, and shares amenities like the pool, rec room, gym, etc. The apartments themselves are a bit newer than Alta, with slightly nicer finishes. Great kitchen, lots of big windows for natural light, nice neighbors. Beautiful, spacious apartment. I love living here because it's close to so many of my classmates, which is helpful for carpooling, but also a bit removed for those times when I need my own space. My only criticisms of Springs are that the walls are not great at keeping out sounds from neighboring apartments (even my quiet ones), and due to the shared amenities, it's a bit of a walk to get to the pool, gym, and leasing office for package pickup.

Springs of Chapel Hill

It's a more spacious version of a standard apartment, fairly new. It meets my needs - I have a spacious bedroom and closet, and my own bathroom. The kitchen is large and the appliances are in good condition. It's also nice for pets - they have two dog parks.

Close and Convenient, but Expensive.

The apartment is nice, and convenient to interstate and campus. Unless sharing, the price can be expensive for a 2 bedroom. The amenities are nice, and appliances new. The only issue I have with those is they went with a cheaper oven, instead of a nicer flat top without all the mess of the metal coils. Overall, it has been a good experience.
