Review of Campus Crossings
Great location and very accessible with the bus route near by. The furnishings are good but nothing to rave about--fairly good considering it's included in rent. The personnel are always pleasant and repairs are taken care of in a decently timely manner.
Extremely convenient, nice pool and gym, no problems.
Parking is not included, each apartment has a separate rental agreement and lease- regardless of sharing.
Travelling without a car is an issue in the US. CC is very conveniently located and has a dedicated free shuttle route for Emory. Moreover, one can just walk to Kroger for all groceries. The next biggest advantage is that this place comes fully furnished, so you don't have to go through the hassle of furnishing the apartment. It is also located pretty close to campus, and I bike often. The candler field is also in walkable distance- great for outdoor runs and sports. Although not super glamorous, CC is an extremely convenient option overall.
The only positive things to say about this apartment is it's somewhat cheap, close to campus, and close to a bus stop. Everything else about this apartment complex is horrible from start to finish. The staff is terrible and totally unhelpful
Royal Palm Court Review
Large beautiful apartment in West Philly
Convenient location relative to Penn campus. It’s not a quiet location, which was disruptive before I got used to it. Maintenance is responsive, and the leasing company office is a block away, so it is easy to get a hold of someone immediately. Internet from a non-mainstream provider (Campus Technologies) is wired into the building, but the internet works well, even when streaming in multiple tabs. Heat is centralized and hard to control, so the apartment temperature fluctuates dramatically. Air condition units are installed in the windows.
Westover Apartments Review
Good, spacious, cheep apartment
This company is obviously large and does not care about individual residents. It has taken me months to even get the basic utilities fixed in my unit. The neighborhood is very nice however.
You get what you pay for
It’s a cheap apartment complex. Rent is cheap, furnishings are cheap, materials are cheap. It’s fine and it gets the job done, but it’s definitely not somewhere I spend more time than I have to. The walls are thin, but luckily most other tenants are quiet because it’s all grad students.
Convenient for first year, new to area
Campus Crossings Apts are very convenient as a first year student. With a shuttle route that stops on the property going directly to campus, you can easily save money on a parking pass on campus. It is also furnished, if you are not interested in dealing with that hassle as well. Because most utilities and internet are included, we only pay one other bill per month (electricity; we choose not to have cable). The downside here is that you have to pay for parking at the complex ($65 covered, $85 covered and gated) which is absurd; and the furniture is not worth the price for the low quality. Otherwise, the upkeep of the property is very good. The pool is great in the summer and the gym, though tiny, has basic essential equipment. The staff is very friendly as well, and Kroger is a short walk away. Overall, good choice for first year, but after learning the area, I will be living elsewhere next year.
Great Place - No Pets
It's a great apartment but not pet friendly and extremely thin walls.
Everything you can ask for as an International Student
Campus Crossings is a fully furnished apartment complex with good management and maintenance staff. It has a pool, clubhouse, gym, yoga studio, tanning bed and a gazebo. The house is spacious and well designed with everything you need. Each room has a private bathroom and the tenants are respectful of each other's privacy and noise levels are low.
not bad for two years. fully furnished
