Our son loved it there! Great place for any "Gopher" to take up residence. Ryan D was awesome to work with in the office and David B (his manager). Great customer service and follow-up. They genuinely care about the residents and taking care of them.

It's nice looking and great size but just horribly managed. The couches are cheep and ugly. The gym has hardly anything.

The Knoll is one of the most high quality apartments on campus. Everything is kept up and maintenance will come the next day!

The Knoll was a great place to live and I would live there again! I really never had issues with the apartment, and if I did, they were fixed the next day. The apartment rooms are high quality and the amenities (rooftop lounges, courtyard, club rooms, and workout rooms) are great. The management was very friendly and I loved how they have someone at the front desk almost 24/7! If you have a car I would recommend getting a parking permit for the garage.

I am reviewing the Knoll as a parent. I am giving the Knoll a 5/5 rating based on convenience to campus (on University and 11th), cleanliness, noise level, size of apartments, and safety. Our daughter lives with 3 girls at the Knoll this year. Our son lived at Doran's 412 Lofts last year. We have nothing but great things to say about our kids experiences at the Doran Properties. The apartments are organized to move in on the day and time they say you will move in. Everything is in its place and ready for you to move in. The halls and all common areas are neat and clean. The bathrooms in the apartments are huge, perfect for two or more roommates. There are oversize kitchens, ready for some great get-togethers. Appliances are top of the line and if there are any issues with them working, someone from management will be ready to assist. Parking is available and works out great on the snow emergency days like we had this year. Noise can always be an issue in any apartment complex, but Doran acts immediately on any complaints. If you have someone who is committed to their studies they will enjoy the Knoll, and if you have a child that enjoys meeting people, the Knoll is the place to be. This year, when there were many safety issues on campus, not once did we worry about our daughter and her roommates. The Knoll is well lit inside and out. The management is always aware of the happenings of the campus. The Knoll and other Doran Properties may be off campus housing, but management always knows what is going on with campus activities and alerts the residents. I would recommend the Knoll and other Doran Properties for any students looking for a place to live while going to the University of Minnesota. Go Gophers!

Excellent and friendly management! We have never had to wait more than a day for maintenance to come. My roommates and I love living in The Knoll because the management makes it easy to be a resident. With students' busy school schedules, sometimes it is hard to worry about the extra little things that come with having one's own apartment. The Knoll is great because we don't have to send reminders and worry about getting things fixed, asking once is enough.

Ratings are on a scale of 1 (below average) to 10 (above average) and can include test scores, college readiness, academic progress, advanced courses, equity, discipline and attendance data. We also advise parents to visit schools, consider other information on school performance and programs, and consider family needs as part of the school selection process.
