A luxurious stay

7 management rating Reviewed by on

I have had a great experience with heights. We have a great clubhouse. We have free breakfast during the weekdays. Although the breakfast is not that great. The apartment is secure, and all the fittings in the apartment are of excellent quality.

Great with some maybes...

I loved living here, but I was dissuaded to use some of the communal amenities for rowdiness from the other residents. I never used the pool after hearing that some residents were throwing plants and other things in the pool. Additionally, sometimes noise was a problem from the younger tenants. The management was great, but you just had to make sure you followed up if you needed something. Would definitely recommend it.

The Heights with their good and bad sides

7 management rating Reviewed by on

In general the housing at the Heights is not bad. The rooms and kitchens are nice and you'll have plenty of space. You'll also certainly find a lot of other Duke and especially Fuqua and Duke Law students. Some ammenities, such as the coffee bar, the awesome pool and the BBQ area are really cool about the Heights.
However, I think that the rent is highly overpriced.
After a while of living here you will see that a few things become annoying, such as if for no obvious reason the garbage would not be picked up. Also, lately a few incidents of strangers roaming around the property have been reported. The area around the Heights (Duke Manor) is sketchy at night and I would recommend to be cautious when walking after dark given criminal incidents have been reported before.
If you're ok with the above-mentioned conditions and look for a fun place that can be made a cozy home, then the Heights will be a good choice for your time in Durham!

Great housing with new kitchen and up-to-date bathrooms. The only problem is cockroaches...we've found more than our fair share even with having the apartment spray for them

Pros/Cons

1 management rating Reviewed by on

Pros: Great buildings, location, and amenities.

Cons: Although close to campus, it is a sketchy location (one break in, etc.). Awful managers that are extortionists and hate college kids.

Hidden costs

A lot of extra costs come in above the basic rent: water, electricity, garbage disposal, convenience fee for payments,...

Home for MMS

9 management rating Reviewed by on

Like:
- A lot of people from MMS. Some undergrads and PHD.
- Nice pool with BBQ.
- Relatively safe place. I feel me safe both outside and inside
- Clean and a very few insects.

Dislike:
- Price
- GYM is small and doesn't have machines except for cardio
- Poor breakfast. I would suggest to bring more snacks instead
- No adjust for AC or HEAT

Really good place to live

LOTS of MMS students live here, it's a short walk from a grocery store. It's a long walk from Fuqua but there is a bus that goes there every 30 minutes

Most MMS students

5 management rating Reviewed by on

The biggest advantage of staying at the Heights is that most MMS students stay there. However a lot has changed over my course of being at the Heights. Heights was known for its parties , but now the management has become really strict and shuts down the pool area at sunset and also shuts down the common area and gym at midnight. We used to have free printing at the start, but 1 month into the lease the management removed all the printers from the common area.

The security here is a joke. Heights prides itself to be a gated community but there is literally no boundary wall surrounding the community. You need your key or enter a code to enter your apartment building, but even that is useless as literally everyone in Durham knows the building code. That being said it is still safer than the likes of Poplar west and Campus Walk.

For the rent one pays, the Lofts and Trinity Common are much better than the Heights.

Most of the program lives here, so it's very convenient for pregames and team meetings. The pool and gym are nice amenities but nothing crazy.
