Recent Southern Management Corporation reviews
I love this complex. It has a pool, basketball court, small soccer field, and exercise room. There is access to a park with larger sports fields and access to a seven-mile paved trail very close by. The complex is very diverse, which is really nice. There are a lot of families with young kids here, which I think makes it feel homey and also means it is pretty quiet at night. The walls are thick enough to where I generally don't hear noise from outside my apartment, anyway. I've never felt unsafe living here, and I've had packages delivered that have sat in front of my door for days when I've been away, so I think that speaks to safety/security as well. Maintenance is quick to address any issues. I haven't seen any evidence of pests, and the common areas are kept clean. It is a short walk to a Ride On bus stop and a Metrobus stop. Laundry is in the basement of my building which is nice. The bathroom and kitchen are nice, with an electric stove and oven and a nice shower/tub. The only kind of weird thing is that management controls when you can switch from A/C to heat in the fall and from heat to A/C in the spring, but that doesn't really bother me. Otherwise, I have full control over the temperature in my apartment, and utilities are covered by the rent as well so it's nice not having to deal with paying those separately. Can't recommend this place enough, really!
Silver Spring Towers
Ok for students. Rent is however above the budget of most International Students without roommates.
Good Place to Live
The management team is great and the service team is also very responsive with any issues we have. The neighbors are friendly, the building is very safe, and we are also within walking distance of downtown Silver Spring. The only issue we have had is a mice problem. The building is older and mice keep coming in no matter what preventative measures we take.
Affordable Housing Worth the Commute
Clean, quick response to maintenance requests, gym, convenience store in building.
Quiet, clean community.
Affordable, friendly, and location is good. Aesthetics below average.
I thoroughly enjoy living at Summit Hills. I have not encountered any problems that have not been able to be fixed. And would definitely recommend.
Location is awesome
Great location. Affordable rent. Spacious parking and good management.
Great experience here so far
Very responsive. 24h maintenance and parking. Everything included. Walking distance to metro. Border of DC. No need to worry about parking
Cheaper than D.C. Near the Red Line. Fairly far from campus. Downtown Silver Spring has some restaurants. Grocery stores nearby. Can be pet friendly. Relatively responsive maintenance. Safe area, day and night.
Great complex outside of the city!
This apartment is a great option for students who don't mind being a bit of a metro ride away from campus. My two bedroom apartment is huge, so it's a great space for roommates. The bedrooms are both pretty big, and the common areas have a lot of space too. The walls within our apartment seem to be good at blocking out noise, but my roommate has complained that she can hear our neighbors on the other side of her bedroom. The other residents of the complex are a mix of other students, young working professionals, and young families. We have a great pool, a gym, and other amenities like a small market and dry cleaners. Management is great as well--every building has a manager that's there from 9-5, and repairs are completed in a timely manner. The distance from school can be a bit of a hassle if you're someone who tends to run late, as the commute is about 45 minutes to an hour with walking time and the metro ride combined (although Uber/Lyft takes closer to 30 minutes). Silver Spring is a great area that has all the activity of DC...with better parking.
Old but spacious
The buildings are relatively old but the apartments are very spacious. There are several buildings in the community and they all share the facilities which include tennis courts, a big swimming pool, a very large gym, mini golf course, dog park, and visitor parking (in addition to plenty of parking for people who live in the community). The silver spring metro station is only a 10-15 mins walk away. The only downside for me has been the carpeted apartments because of allergies. Otherwise I highly recommend this community.
Summit Hills is a great place to live for graduate students because the rent is decent for the area and includes all utilities. Parking is included as well as entrance to the gym.
The facilities are decent but not the newest depending on the building you are in. The property managers and staff are very helpful with making any changes and repairs that need to be made. Usually takes no more than 24 hrs for them to respond.
The entire property is located 10-15 minutes from downtown Silver Spring and easily accessible by bus and train. Property is a 15 minute walk to Silver Spring Metro stop.
There is a pool that is open between Memorial day and Labor Day and is always nicely maintained. The gym needs work and new equipment but has all the basics.
you get what you pay for
I wanted to live alone and kent village fit in my budget to do that. my rent was only above 1000s in my fourth yr and this includes a 25$ pet rent. but i will say, the neighborhood is a little rough and there is a commute to get to school (20 mins w/o traffic and 30-45 w/ traffic).
Get a car
If you have a car, it’s 20 min easy drive down Georgia ave straight to school
Lots of students live at Summit, so can car pool, metro also close
Good location with food and amenities in walking distance
Pet friendly, management friendly, 24h gatehouse, 24h gym, convenient store and dry cleaning on site
Technically maryland address but on border of dc, much cheaper apt for size relative to dc
