What Our Residents Have to Say

4.4 rating | based on 412 reviews

I have not moved in yet let alone been to Tennessee and the staff over at The Commons have already made me feel so welcomed and like family. Always willing to answer any questions and help in any way. They are truly great and I can’t wait for move-in as well to meet them all in person!



Professional, knowledgeable, good attention to detail. Really well done.



I have been looking for student housing for months and there were several options to choose from, and l had the easiest time with Emily and her staff at The Commons. I can’t wait to spend my time at The Commons this school year ❤️❤️❤️



The Commons is a great place to live with an even better staff! They always do whatever they can to make things easier and less stressful for their residents, 10/10 recommend checking them out if you are looking for a place to live.



I lived at The Commons for 3 years while attending UT. It was close to campus, clean, and had a friendly and attentive staff.
