501 Estates

This complex of apartments is very nice, very secure, and you can build a great community here. many duke students are leaving here, especially from Chile, Argentina and mexico.

Comfortable, Accesible, and family oriented

Great place for those who come with family and want a more peaceful area to live. Socializing is a pain-point (far away from 9th Street area), but you are in a more rural scenario.

Great neighborhood + 7 minutes by car to Fuqua

Great neighborhood, surrounded by amazing hikes and forest. The apartments are great, huge spaces, nice view. The only problem is that you are not near the 9 street area (10-12 minutes by car), so if you want to be near the party, this is not your place.

Cheaper and bigger

501 estates is a really good place. You can choose between apartments and houses. Rent prices are usually lower than the ninth street area, and you are near the forest.

If you have a pet, a first floor or a house would be the best choice. There are a lot of Duke people living here, and a group of friendly Latin-Americans looking to make this complex a Fuqua student hub. We do carpool between the student that are currently living here.

If you have a partner and/or kids, this is a really nice place to be.

Great place for a family.

I am a full-time student at Fuqua with two young children and 501 Estates has been great for us. It is not the most luxurious complex but it has a pool, dog park and they're building a new gym. I have a 3 bed/ 3.5 bath townhouse with a garage and it's very spacious.

Bang for your Buck

Century Trinity is an affordable place to live that is less than 10-minute drive from campus. The apartments are not the swankiest but are clean and moderately upgraded. The management can be a bit of a pain when you have to deal with them but my interactions with them have been minimal. It is not a walkable community and you definitely need a car or a neighbor with a car.

One perspective

The apartments themselves are nice enough. We moved there so we wouldn't have issues with loud neighbors, as we had heard families at Station 9 or Berkshire 9 might deal with. In retrospect, it would have been worth living at Station 9 or Berkshire 9 so as to be in closer proximity to my classmates. The noise level difference was negligible.

It is also not very secure. Several people's cars were broken into and the police officer who handled the situation said this happens every year at Century Trinity and Garret West.

Management is absolutely terrible to deal with, bordering on outright disrectfulness.
