Funnest place to live in while in college if you like to party. The rent is on the expensive side while still having to pay your electrical bill. DO NOT get the furniture package as its cheap, in terrible shape and you will get fined half way through the year for normal wear. Moved in last August and there were some ants coming in. Talked to the front office and they had an exterminator come in the next day and that problem was resolved. The Vie, which is the apartments beside The Republic is a pretty dangerous place as theres been 3+ shootings there the past school year; but The Republic cannot do anything about that. Pool is great, when its opened. The clubhouse is also great. Kitchens are really nice and the floor plans are open. Overall, Ive made a lot of great friends from other renters at The Republic and really enjoy living there. Every place is going to have its negative attributes, and to me, the pros of living here are lot greater than the cons.

I have had nothing but good experiences at The Republic. This is the only place I toured that actually looked exactly like the model. There are no scams here -- it really is this nice. It has a huge pool, volleyball nets, grills, etc. Also, there has never been a time where I put in a maintenance order and it wasn't taken care of within 24 hours, unless there was a part to be ordered. All of the staff is super nice and friendly.

The Republic is a great place to live. Ive lived there for the past year and will be returning to live there next year as well. They really give you your moneys worth. I didn't have to pay for a parking pass because the shuttle runs all day from 6am to 7pm. They have a large rec center where I would walk to go study instead of driving to the library. They have plenty of computers in the computer lab and also pool tables, a lounge, a gym and a very large pool with a volleyball court. The pool is amazing in the summer and everyone has fun while barbecuing and playing games. The rooms are a great size with large walk in closets and separate, private bathrooms. I recommend the republic to everyone.

I have lived here for almost a full year. This is the second place that I have lived in Raleigh and definitely my favorite. Maintenance is highly responsive. I had a dryer break down and I submitted a work order later at night online and maintenance was there to fix the issue the next day. When I am not working on school work there is so much to do with friends in your free time at the clubhouse. It is also the best place to live if you have a pet. Most of the people that live out there have dogs so it is a great way to create camaraderie among the residents.

The Republic at Raleigh has been a great place to live. The maintenance supervisors are very responsive to requests and do their very best to keep the space you're living in clean. The office staff is always friendly as well. I enjoy the furnished package and it is all quality furniture. Would recommend living here to a friend!

I have lived here for almost 2 years now and havent had a problem. The customer service and maintenance is top notch. The staff really tries to make you feel at home and tries to get everyone together at different events like Thanksgiving dinner, carving pumpkins, breakfast on the way to class, etc. the pool is amazing and so relaxing when the hot wearher finally comes. The housing is super nice and cozy and kept up to date. I have loved living here and highly recommend living her as a junior and senior in college. It can be loud but the Republic is always a fun time. The clubhouse is super nice too to study in and workout in the gym. Definitely check into living here its a 10 out of 10!!!

The Republic at Raleigh is in a great location and is very convenient for commuting to college. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating. The facility is very clean and well kept. The swimming pool is one of my favorite ammenaties at the Republic. I recommend the Republic to anyone looking for an amazing/adorable living experience.

Very nice place to live. If I was reviewing based off the apartment alone, Id give it 5 stars. HOWEVER, the front office is full of SCAMMERS. Provided us with all this busted up, worn out furniture upon moving in (which we pay for in the furniture package every month) and then proceeded to charge us for said busted up, worn out furniture being busted up and worn out halfway through the lease year! Basically paying them to replace cushions that should have been replaced way before I even moved in. Front office was unwilling to remove charges because of course theyre some scammers. Also refused to do anything about a racist roommate who called me and another roommate a racist epithet during an argument. Idk what kind of shoddy business practices management is running up in that office, but if you dont like being scammed out your money, run away!

Hated living here, terrible service. At one point our washer quit working and it took them over 2 weeks after first checking it to even fix it and I had clothes that needed to be washed so I ended up going to a laundromat. Also, you pay to much for what you get, I would expect better service since my rent went up from the already high price midway through the lease.

This place has some great features, but for me the negatives far outweigh the positives. The apartment is fairly nice and larger than most any other place you will find as a student. The front office has always been friendly. My issues are as follows: - The neighbors have no respect for you for example revving engines until four am was a consistent occurrence as was the screaming and shooting fireworks just because (it was March) - The pool is nice but again the people who live here don't respect it. It is not uncommon to find dozens of beer cans left as if the pool area is a dumping ground and there will always be a war of who can buy the loudest speaker and play it over everyone else. - The cost they told me before I signed the lease said that the $30 added to the $600 rent would generally cover most months as far as utilities. It has not covered one. My roommates are fairly conservative with power and we even went through October without AC except one night and we still incurred a charge of $22 apiece. Our first full month was $57 apiece so expect those extra charges. - Every fire alarm in our apartment is faulty, they will beep randomly and often and every so often the one in my room wakes me up with a strange sound like a tea kettle even though I have replaced the batteries twice - Back to the neighbors, I can't tell if there are a few bad ones intermittently spread out or it is just everyone but another thing that happened was the people who live behind us shot a sweet potato at my roommate's window in the middle of the night which subsequently splattered on his window. There are many other issues but I won't go into those. In conclusion, if you move in here you can expect to be kept up on weeknights, pay lots of money for utilities, wake up to the entire area being trashed after every weekend, dog owners too lazy to clean up their dog poop, and to grow to resent your neighbors but shout out to the cleaning staff for always being friendly. Update: AC went out when it was 90 degrees outside. Same day I told the office, it was fixed. Does not change the rating but maintenance was quick if you are concerned about that.

I've lived here the past two years and have really enjoyed it! Sometimes the people who live here make it a challenge but I have no complaints about the apartment complex itself!! I would recommend if you like townhouse style homes!

This is my first year living here. After living on campus and in Valentine Commons, this is by far the nicest place. It's nice having your bathroom in your bedroom and the rooms are big. The only downside is the price. It's easy to go over with utilities.

I have been here for 2 years, going on 3 with nothing with nothing good things to say about the Retreat. The pool is by far my favorite part, it is larger 3 of the 5 Great Lakes and there's enough good looking girls around to make all of NC State's engineering campus happy. The management is very friendly too, they have worked with me personally on several occasions and I have never had any issues regarding payments or maintenance. The apartments are far superior than the other housing developments in the area and it creates an awesome standard for good living for the student life.... it's pretty easy to make some new friends. Sure the rent is a little higher, but every dollar I've spent for it has been waaaaaay more than worth it. I don't think you'll regret living here if you decide to...heck, we'll probably end up running into each other at the pool over the summer and having a good time. My parent's love it as do the new dogs I just got.... if ya ever come by and check it out you'll probably find me or the pups at the pool. Great student living area.

I lived at the Retreat for it's first year open, and I could not agree more with the other review I just read. I would not recommend signing a lease here for students, or anyone for that matter. The management is poor, despite switching halfway through the year. College students with no responsibility and limited supervision run this place. Through an entire year I was unable to speak to an adult about any of our issues. Every single weekend the students treat the property like spring break, trashing the grounds and pool every single night. I've heard people drag racing up and down Wolf Wood drive, and either gunshots or fireworks on multiple occasions in the middle of the night. The apartments look great on the outside, but everything inside is cheap and flimsy. My biggest complaint is that people will steal things right off your back porch. This happened twice throughout the year and is unacceptable. No police presence, it's just college kids doing whatever they want. My only positive thing to say is that when something breaks, maintenance workers are usually there within one business day to fix the problem. For the price, this is NOT worth it. You can find better/cheaper options closer to NCSU or Meredith that will not give you all of these problems.
