HPT is great!
I love living at HPT, management is extremely responsive and fast about fixing any issues. There is communal laundry, but I have never had any issues and am always able to find an open machine. Packages are secure and I am never worried about anything being stolen. The doormen are extremely friendly, and in my experience, all residents are considerate and cordial with one another.
Small and pricey, but amazing community and peaceful surroundings
I've loved my experience at Lincoln Place. Management is surprisingly responsive. That includes maintenance, pest control, etc. There are parking garages for an add'l fee, which include a ton of storage. There are also parking spots for a smaller add'l fee.
Outside the apartment, there is a ton of green space including an adorable grassy dog park. There are tons of communal grills. Amenities include a gym and pool--both high quality. It's walkable to several restaurants and grocery stores, including a Ralph's and Whole Foods. Depending on when you would leave for school, it's anywhere from a 20-45 min drive to UCLA.
The apartments themselves are on the smaller side, but you are paying for quality builds. Also, you don't share walls with anyone--only a floor or ceiling, depending on whether you are in a lower or upper unit. There are only four apartments per building, and many buildings (it kind of resembles a florida retirement condo community, but filled with young people and pets). Highly recommend!
Chestnut Hall Apartment Review
The location is amazing. It's close to a bunch of cafes and restaurants. Close to SEPTA trolley and bus stations. Since it is on Penn's campus, there's always security officers patrolling the area, making it super safe. However, there are some downsides. The management is not responsive. There is not much maintenance/cleaning done on the first floor/floor hallways. No amenities. Utility fees can be expensive in the winter months.
When I first came to check out apartments around AU, Vaughan Place came highly recommended. Great tour, everyone treated us very nicely while we were checking it out, and made a big show of welcoming us. Since living there, it's just an okay spot. I'm mostly happy it's close to campus, and grocery stores, and it's a safe spot for me and my cat. Management could be more responsive and kinder but they manage a big property, so it's understandable.
The Residences at Capital Crescent Trail Review
fine just don't have an issue necessary for managment interaction
Sometimes slow response to maintenance, but great experience otherwise!
Amazing location, small gym, nice staff, quiet building that feels small in a good way. Also high ceilings! Pricey for 1 person but has been great to split with my partner.
Great place to live!
The location is amazing, it's very close to Penn (my school), rooms are extremely spacious, square footage is MUCH better compared to other apartments in the area that are more expensive! Amenities are beautiful -- the gym has everything you could want, there are BEAUTIFUL common sitting spaces and a REALLY nice roof to host friends. Ceilings are really high which make for great acoustics. Only odd thing is that there are no ceiling lights so you need a few floor lamps.
Expensive but safe
The experience has been great though the cost is much higher than what I would have liked
Decent Living Experience Outside of Boulder
I've lived in the same apartment at Meadow Creek since moving to Colorado for law school in Aug. 2021. The property has some downfalls including: (1) lack of insulation so noise from other residents carries; (2) old buildings (specifically pipes) which has resulted in water being shut off multiple times to repair; and (3) certain amenities breaking (i.e. pool and hot tub). That being said, it's only 15-20 minutes to the school, the size of the apartments are decent, and the cost is lower compared to most other apartments in the area. Would definitely recommend touring first to see if it's something you'd like and I would not live on the 1st floor because of the noise issues.
Parc Mosaic Review
Pretty Good, but Expensive
Good choice overall
Convenient apartment, usually need to take transit to school or walk ~45 minutes
Chestnut Hall Review
Nice apartment, no complaints
Great apartment for grad students
My roommate and I love The Sterling. The apartment is about a 25 minute walk to the law school. It is also very close to great restaurants (including an amazing sushi restaurant & bagel shop right under the building). There is a pool and gym at the top floor. Our only complaint is that the temperature is difficult to control because there is not central AC.
Great choice for law students
I really enjoy living in Left Bank; it's relatively close to the law school building (about a 5-7 minute walk), the interior looks modern and spacious (high ceilings), and there are many amenities that tenants can take advantage of, such as the gym, study rooms, theater, community kitchen, and rooftop. It is a bit on the pricier side, but if you're planning on living with others, it's worth it!
