My opinions on all the apartments I saw (I'll try to post more info when I have time):
Glen Eagle Village: Spacious one bedrooms for a great price ($850-$875 a month). Seemingly nice and somewhat private community as you go a bit deeper. Well maintained and landscaped. Get a fully renovated apartment as they’re pretty awesome for only $20 more a month (bigger bathrooms and new kitchen). Also has a really nice balcony and you can have cats. Only downside was that the management was a bit unprofessional, but really personable!
Oak Tree Apartments: A tiny bit cheaper than Glen Eagle ($790-$885), but the apartments were not nearly as nice. They have no plans to renovate, so everything seemed a bit outdated. I also saw a lot of bad reviews online for bug complaints in Oak Tree. Same floor plan as an unrenovated Glen Eagle, but seems less well-maintained.
Apts. at Pine Brook: Really professional and nice staff and very nice private community. The community had really beautiful landscaping. Rent is going to be $900-930 all included but electricity. Spacious and nice apartment, can have cats, had a “den” (basically a second bedroom). The only thing I didn’t like was that the carpet was orange-brown and really ugly (not to mention what kind of stains and dirt that carpet could hide).
Colonial Garden Apartments: The apartments themselves were actually nice and spacious for about $835 a month, but the complex was filthy and didn’t have good security. There was a burrito spilled on the stairs going up to my apartment (it looked like it had been there awhile). Sketchy area as well (my mom got hit on by a creeper outside the apartment). Parking seemed like a real issue as well (limited spaces). But the proximity to campus was great. The leasing agent was pretty unprofessional.
The Varsity Apartments: Really sketchy area, I didn’t even go into the apartments – they seemed a little run down from even the outside with no personal space. I don’t know the price either.
Studio Green: I liked the single bedroom but for $930 a month it really isn’t a good deal (and it’s going to go up to $960 a month). All included in rent (even satellite and internet). Well maintained and friendly staff (also seemed to have pretty good security). The apartment was pretty darn small though compared to others on this list.
Hope this helps!
