I enjoy living here

Maintence has been nice and comes anytime we have a problem. It can get a little loud at times. The staff does a great job trying to get residents engaged.

I have enjoyed my year living at The Commons

Decent rent and in close proximity to campus and downtown. It also has good amenities and I was happy to take advantage of the free parking. A few things in the apartment were difficult at times (washer/dryer and ice machine) but overall a good place to live for what you pay!
