Best budget apartment close to campus.
Atera is about 12 minutes from campus and you can avoid highways completely! Never have to worry about traffic on 75. The complex is in the coveted Oaklawn area, but is older than most complexes around here. This complex and and all of Oaklawn are extremely LGBTQ+ friendly. It’s walking distance to two Krogers and other shops, restaurants, and bars. This is the cheapest place to live close to campus, is gated, and the apartments are quite roomy. However, the area isn’t the best. That being said, I’ve never felt unsafe here.
Cantabria at Turtle Creek Review
Love it! Very safe, great location
Decent price, good location
The rent is decent. The size, age, appliances, and natural light are great. The building is quiet and in a good, safe neighborhood. There’s also 24/7 onsite maintenance.
Great value and location
I love living at Cantabria Turtle Creek. It has a quiet neighborhood feel and the location can’t be beat.
This is a great apartment, if you have a car to get to campus!
This is a great apartment complex. It is pretty new, so the appliances and amenities are great. It's also a mixed used development, so it is located in a complex with a supermarket, movie theater, Costco, restaurants and other shops. It is very convenient. The only downside is it is not as close to campus, as it takes about 25 minutes to travel to school. You would need a car.
Comfortable apt in wooded complex
I have lived at Bridges for 2 years and really like it. The apartment is big, the bedrooms are far enough from each other that my roommate and I can have our own space. The views are very nice and it's generally very quiet.
The one drawback has been that management has has to replace the A/C unit 3 or 4 times due to leaks.
Very Good Option for Those on a Budget
Compared to the apartments of many Kenan-Flagler students, the price range at Bridges is on the low end. Carrboro has a number of fairly cheap options, not all of which are good. We are overall pleased with Bridges, and would recommend it to any incoming students.
Fine property, some issues
The layout of the apartment is nice, and the included gym membership is a welcome perk. The drive to campus is short, and it's easy to get to Carrboro and Franklin St. There are plenty of other students in the area so it's been easy to find carpool buddies.
Staff here are mostly great when we've had issues, however, we've had a fair number of those issues. The breaker to our apartment malfunctioned during the early winter and left us completely without power for a weekend. During a snowstorm our heat pump froze and we had to spend the night without heat. While maintenance was understanding and helpful, the property management was nevertheless unwilling to perform preventive maintenance before these things actually became issues. So, while a generally fine place to live, it has not been the smooth sailing I expected.
We like it
We like our apartment a lot. It's nothing fancy, but it has enough amenities and is significantly cheaper than what many of my classmates are paying at other locations. We enjoy the pool and having a lot of trees around us. After undergoing a ownership switch, the new ownership is upgrading the counters and appliances in many of the units. The location of the complex is great as it's very proximal to Carrboro.
Nice place in Carrboro.
Helpful staff, clean apartments. This year they are renewing all the appliances.
I have lived at the Bridges at Chapel Hill and I have really enjoyed it. The apartment complex is right on a bus line that comes very frequently, so it is easy to get to and from the UNC Campus. The office staff is always very helpful and they are very quick to fix anything that may be broken in the apartment. We also get a free O2 Fitness membership.
Home sweet home
My girlfriend, Sawyer, and I live here with our dog, Piper. We're a happy little family. We like the area. We are near both of our parents. And know the nice spots. Whether it's for walks with piper or margaritas with sawyer. I'm a happy man and this is my oasis.
The Harlowe is a very legitimate complex with respect to value and location. Right outside of DC and near pentagon city, etc, it is a good location and the pricing is relatively appropriate. Decent management, friendly environment. They are doing upgrades and the building seems to be headed into a terrific direction.
Review of The Harlowe
The experience has been overall very good. The location is not in walking distance to the metro, but it allows convenient proximity to a direct bus route that takes riders straight to the metro in the morning. They have recently updated the cosmetics of the building, i.e. painted the outside, new interior, updated fitness room, which has been very nice. There are many different kinds of residents who live there, so I find it nice that there is a diverse group of tenants, from single people to small families to couples, old and young. Overall good vibes.
Great location but small and dark
We're living in Bridges while we wait for our house to be built. Management is friendly and super helpful, maintenance is very prompt. They communicate well with residents and are straightforward about regular maintenance and inspections. However, the apartments are small, dark, and dingy. They're overdue for a major renovation. I'd put up with it better if the price was lower, but this is the downside of living in a college town. Neighborhood is very quiet, pool is nice, two different bus lines run near the property.
