Pros: There are a few friendly staff members, they do a lot of socializing events, hardwood floors, a lot of vistitor parking. Cons: Tight squeeze parking spaces when bigger vehicles are parked around you, hidden/ unexpected fees during and after move out, loft style apartment is too hot during summer with no circulating air, I could hear my neighbors constantly fighting through the thin walls, and good thing I have a hotspot on my phone because the internet was out for 1-2 of my last months there and needed internet in my apartment.

Moved my daughter in last week - staff and maintenance alike have been polite, helpful and able to resolve issues in a timely manner. Apartment has more than enough space and was freshly painted before arriving. Proximity to campus as well as Starbucks, TJ Maxx, Lowe's Food, Best Buy, etc, is a huge plus.

I helped my daughter move in two days ago. Everyone in the office was super helpful at check-in. Apartment was clean and ready to go. Had a minor plumbing issue and Maintenance Supervisor David was there within 10 minutes and had the problem fixed in another few minutes. Everyone at CEV made what can be a difficult process go very smoothly!

Finally! I move i yesterday, i was so excited. Alec and Erica were so helpful with moving me in. When i got to my apartment, David met me there and wanted to walk me through it. My roommate seems very nice from what I saw. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for an apartment!

Multiple disappointments here. Dirty apartments prior to move in. Condoms and beer bottles, caps, etc. mold on the walls. Extremely expensive for quality although their marketing is strong. ANY CO-SIGNERS please be aware that you are on the hook for all renewals whether you sign or not. Their leases are very broad and, of course, in their favor. Just be aware.

Nice place to live. Of course; like any place it can depend on your neighbors as far as experiences. Nice pool, workout area, even free expensive coffee 24/7. Internet and more included in rent. Mostly college kids/adults. Beware of glass on the ground. I didn't see any, just expect the obvious, it's almost 100% college kids and some party n there's always that one jerk who breaks a beer bottle... Don't be THAT PERSON...

Living here has been awesome for the year and a half I have been here. The lofts are awesome, tons of space for a single person to live in. Maintenance is super friendly and helpful, the front desk guys are super chill, and I can run to UNCW in under 2 minutes or walk in 5. They had a wifi issue because of spectrum which wasn't great, but now that its back I realize how fast the internet is. The pools are pretty sweet too and theres a solid community of mostly friendly people. Renewed and will be doing the same in the future!

Moved into a dirty apartment. I was going to clean it anyway but I mean C'mon so much dog hair and dust. The dog owner in the complex don't pick up the poo and we only got 1 parking decal and 1 key to the door. I asked for a decal and the office chick said they only give one and we can only get a 2nd key If the 1st gets lost and we'll have to pay $100 for it. Laundry, gym and a stand up tanning both of the latter are included in rent. Furnished or not with Wi-Fi included with rent along with pest control and water,/sewer and electrical service allowance of up to $30. Very peaceful and quiet, surprisingly. You don't have to be a student to live here and they do breakfast and other meals etc in the club house. Pool, outdoor bar, grill, TV and gas fueled fire pit. I can't wait for summer!

They have friendly service, its never noisy at night. They have good social events and the staff are very friendly. Very highly recommended. The pool is lovely and the gym is great. They give out free food once in a while and they do whatever they can to make the customers stay as welcome as possible.

Campus Evolution Villages in Wilmington, NC is a wonderful place to live. The location is perfect (practically right next to UNCW's campus), the pools are nice, and the units are cool to live in -- but what really makes this living experience one of the best is definitely the staff. The maintenance workers (lead by the ever-pleasant Paul Walker) are efficient and friendly. The office staff is fun to be around, and they're always feeding you free food! In particular I'd like to single out Tyler Minton -- he's always available if I have a question or concern in regards to my lease, unit, etc. He's friendly, helpful, and I get the sense that he truly cares about his residents. Thank you for making it so that I love where I live (:

I just moved out of CEV; it was an excellent place to live. The maintenance staff was always fixing problems fast. The staff in CEV inside were great especially Erica (Assistant General Manager) she was so helpful all the time and really nice. I would recommend students to live there. Get Erica (Assistant General Manager) she will have answers and help you with all you need.

This a great apartment complex for students and normal residents. The office staff does their best to accommodate to residential needs, and help solve any complications you may encounter. Highly recommend considering them if you're looking for a new place to live!

Good location if you're going to school BUT huge bug problem!! I would wake up, turn the light on, and see them scatter all over the floor. If you check behind the fridge, I found a pile of roaches hiding there and in the cabinets!! They were pretty quick with maintenance requests. Expensive compared to other newer apartments. Moving out next week.
