I love this place. People in the leasing office are friendly and helpful. They can always solve my problem and treat me a cup of hot cocoa in the office. I never thought that this small apartment can be so much better than those big ones. You can pick up your package even on the midnight and the maintenance comes to help you on the same day or second day of your request. If the gym is bigger and have a study room where I can print, I will love it more! Thank you everyone for your hard work whole year! Appreciated!

Start I just think this apartment is very close to his choice, from the school to live for a period of time to find new house, but I don't have all over the city to find the cost performance is better than the apartment house

I've lived here for almost 9 months, and I want to be honest about the pros and cons of this place. 1. Room space and price are okay considering it is walking distance to campus. I am living in a study room with my gf and we each pay 750/month. 2. Internet is slow and unsteady but is free, and the only provider allowed is Comcast, you can pay to update the speed. 3. Facilities are SUPER old and broken, the AC kept crashing in my 9 months of living, the windows are sealed and can't be opened. The gyms sucks, it is the kind of place you will never want to go. 4. The securities are always friendly, but the thin, middle, aged black lady working in the front desk is SUPER rude, definitely the worst person I've ever seen. She always looks impatient while talking to you. And I've seen her playing phone games, with headphone on, chewing gum while talking to people, and she report my request to the mechanic gay. That lady is destroying the reputation of courts apt, she deserved to be fired!

I have very much enjoyed my stay at the courts. The courts is a great value for what you pay. I have been in a 2 bed 2 bath for two years for 550 per month and I plan on staying another year or two. The place is very homey with a grand alleyway entrance and a decent courtyard(which is currently going through some construction but is a good place for cookouts). My apartment itself is very comfortable after we have decorated and furnished it over the past couple years. Its a nice, humble place. It has a tiny kitchen, but it works well for one person at a time. If something is broken, they fix it in a pretty timely manner. Management is extremely friendly and easy to get along with, so I am not sure what a lot of these other comments are complaining about. Bottom line, the Courts is a very comfortable apartment for the price you pay (Half the cost of on campus and hundreds less than UCross/Summit). Once you start looking into cheaper options like Academic Properties and town houses you really start to lose a lot of quality. I would recommend.
