Campus Crossings is convenient but not the best place
I have liked my experience there. It is a convenient place next to Emory, fully furnished and there's a shuttle going to and coming from Emory every 15-30 minutes. Having said, customer service is not really great and the internet is at most times extremely slow. Still a good place to live in given rent cost.
Dangerous. Awful management.
A few anecdotes:
-When I first moved in, my apartment had a gas leak and the leasing office agent rudely dismissed it as not an emergency. Fortunately the repairman for my building passed by and overheard our conversation, and offered to come fix it right away.
-I also emailed about other move-in questions (where the dumpster was located, etc), had to email a few times before they responded, and the answers were cursory and completely unhelpful.
-My fire alarm was broken for 2 months before it was fixed.
-I've had three packages stolen and management hasn't acted on my complaints at all.
-The free shuttle that they advertise is notoriously unreliable (service often stops without explanation) and slow. The leasing office flat out denies that service has stopped and generally does nothing about it.
-The actual quality of the apartments is horrible--the building materials are all super cheap. Also, the street can feel unsafe at night, and the area can get very loud sometimes (cars drag racing on the street, music blaring from the street over).
Stay away! Management is a disaster--the people in the leasing office have a truly terrible attitude and dealing with them is such a headache that I'd often rather live with the maintenance issues that come up rather than try to persuade them to fix the problem.
Convenient, well maintained
Campus Crossings is quite perfect for Emory Students, especially international students, given its proximity to Emory, great shuttle access, good facilities and furnished apartments.
Convenience at a Price
Convenient for students who do not wish to purchase furniture and/or who do not have access to a car.
Very convenient but don't expect much customer service
Campus Crossings is a great place to live at overall due to the convenience it offers. It is fully furnished including a bed, desk, chair, microwave, living-room table, sofa, dryer, washing machine and dish washer. However, customer service is nowhere near perfect and needs improvement. Your requests will not always be met on time or at all plus they are a bit slow to fix stuff. The convenience still outweighs those issues which is why i renewed my lease.
Campus Crossings Reviews
Very convenient location and amazing shuttle services. Perfect for people NOT owning a car. Kroger is just 2 mins walk away.
Campus Crossings offers furnished units and has a Emory shuttle stop, which makes it easier for someone moving from another country with no vehicle.
Managment is really bad
I love the apartment for the reason it is conveniently located, with a Kroger near by and a shuttle service to campus and most importantly all my friends live in the complex.
But the management of the complex is really bad. there are frequent internet snafoos and the charges for routine maintenance stuff like carpet cleaning are really high.
Overall, I would rate it to be an average
Convenient for international students
Arriving a few days before the start of the program, I did not want to indulge in buying furniture for the apartment and as such Campus Crossings was a great place. Comes furnished, right next to Krogers, frequent shuttle service and comes with in-house laundry. I would say the convenience trumps any drawbacks.
Campus Crossing at Briarcliff
The apartments are well maintained and the best part is they come with electrical equipments - washer, dryer, dishwasher etc. However the experience can be improved if the management was better. They take a long time to resolve residents' issues and some times it is noisy as it is mostly students who live here.
Pretty good, but could use more natural light
Overall: this apartment is a good price for what you get and has lots of closets and wood floors, but is lacking in amenities and natural light.
Large, good layout for furniture. Slightly strange paneling on walls that makes hanging pictures somewhat challenging, but adds visual interest. Large closet with light.
Small side of medium. Three windows. Medium-sized closet. Not much to say.
This is a very ugly but functional room. Small but good gas stove, full-size fridge, "mini" dishwasher. Two medium countertops and lots of cabinets. Room for a small table. Plumbing can be testy and I wish there was a sink sprayer and garbage disposal. The worst part is the faux linoleum tiling, which is really hideous and peels up at every edge.
Small and lacks storage inside, but has a large closet outside the door. Hot water is pretty dependable. Big, deep bathtub, which I love, but for some reason someone painted over the porcelain. Now the paint flakes off. Textured window for privacy. Plumbing can be testy.
The radiators are also unpredictable (sometimes are on when it's warm and off when it's cold, and they have a tendency to clang in the middle of the night. There is one radiator in each room (the bedroom, bathroom, living room, and kitchen).
The apartment and surrounding area feel safe to me. You must enter a code and use a key to get in.
There is a creepy laundry room in the basement that takes quarters, but I use the awesome card-operated laundromat across the street.
10 minute walks to 46th St MFL Station and liquor store, 10~15 to grocery store. Several bus routes are within a few blocks. Less than 5 minutes to 34 trolley. Convenient to shopping and restaurants along Baltimore as well as around 44th and Walnut/Locust.
I paid a reasonable pet deposit for my two cats to be here.
Ample free street parking. This area does not require a permit.
Great apartment complex for grad students
As an Emory grad student, I love living here. The community is only for grad students. The apartment itself is very modern and comes fully furnished, which is great when you're just moving to Atlanta for school. Safe neighborhood and has a beautiful outdoor pool and indoor gym.
Easy place to live during school
Living here was fine. I felt like it was safe even though there was some crime in the parking lot because it was gated and my room was on the interior. There were a couple of nights where noise was an issue, especially by the pool. Overall I was happy with my decision to live here just because it was so convenient.
Very convenient location and great for students! There is a shuttle stop right outside the apartment and the supermarket is only a 3 minute walk away. Safe neighborhood and great management. The apartment has a nice fitness room and outdoor swimming pool.
Campus Crossings is Great Student Living
I have had a great experience living at Campus Crossings. The rooms are furnished, come with washer dryer in unit, there is a gym and pool downstairs and a shuttle that picks up right in front of the complex and goes directly to campus. Rooms are clean and affordable for students.
