This was my first year, staff has been great, and I loved how close to class and everything else it was. The price is a little high for my 2 Bedroom but compared to all the other places around here its pretty fair

Love living at VC, this is my second year and I'm moving to one of the larger 4 bedroom apartments with some friends. The staff has been so helpful through the entire process. I toured last weekend to show my mom the place, and the hallways look really rough but the staff told me that this was getting freshened up during the summer break.

Looking for student housing? Look no further! I could not imagine my college experience without this place! I have signed to live here for the 3rd consecutive year. Going into my senior year and having lived here since I was a sophomore, VC has been a dream. Great staff that selflessly puts the residents before themselves consistently, ideal location for walking to class, and fantastic amenities to enhance your experience here. Valentine Commons does not disappoint when looking for student housing, and compared to other local price points VC beats out all the competition!

Overpriced. Internet skips every 10 seconds or so, so forget streaming high quality sports games or anything of that sort. If you play video games, your ping spikes and you will lag online due to that. Packages are almost never received the same day they arrive to the building. Ive lived here for 2 years and had horrible roommates. The first year I complained regularly about this guy who would just leave his alarm on for hours and they did nothing even though it is in direct violation of the lease to do something of the sort. Second year, these guys have left the kitchen absolutely disgusting despite being warned about fees and such during inspections - nothing ever arose from that. Average furniture provided, everything gets squeaky and wobbly pretty fast. The gym is pretty small and not very noteworthy if you are actually trying to lift weights, but hey, if you really want to give yourself cancer they have tanning booths! The desk is typically nice but it is frustrating when the printer in the computer lab is broken more times than when it is fixed. Plus, paper is not provided? Seriously, the combined revenue of this property can afford you some printing paper for the residents to use. But, I havent heard anything better about the surrounding places. If I was to do it again, I would attempt to find a house near hillsborough to rent for cheaper while you get more amenities, space, and the same convenience that VC affords you. Also, diversify your staff. You have not had any non-white desk workers the entire length of my tenancy. Youre kinda asking to be sued for discrimination.

I've lived at VC the past 2 years. So much has changed at State, but I will say I have loved living in VC. The property is older, and some stuff is out of date, but from what I've heard from the staff they are working to update it, which is good. The staff has always been available to speak with me whenever i've had an issue, in person, email or even text. I will say that it's nice to know i can text the office whenever I have an issue so that i don't always have to come down to the desk. There is a maintenance guy, older guy, who is so friendly, and sings in the hallways while he goes around doing stuff. I will never say that this place is perfect but from my experience the staff has made it worth living. If I didn't graduate this year I would be resigning my lease. I think that the people who post all this negative stuff just don't really try to see the good side of things and are just looking for a way to complain. Give it a shot you will like it, i know i did.

so lets be honest...I moved into this place and didn't see the reviews for it until afterwards so I was pretty freaked out. I feel like that stuff I have read and hear really happened but I can say that since l moved into the building in August that has not been true anymore. I live in a 3 bedroom apartment with one of my friends and we got a random roommate and it's worked out really great. The building it ok, the apartment works for me and my friends and the staff is really nice. I'm not going to lie there have been a few problems here for example when i first moved in maintenance took forever to get anything fixed, but i guess they fired those guys because things got better pretty quick when the older guy on maintenance started working here. Internet has it's problems every now and then but they seem to be on top of getting it fixed when something does happen. The property manager is super nice, and I also see him around the building and down at the office and he is really easy to get in touch with and trys really hard to make everyone happy. Some of the students that work in the front dont seem to have it together but if the property manager hears them saying something wrong he comes out quick and corrects it. ***BE WARNED DONT FORGET TO PAY RENT...I forgot over christmas break and whoever the lady is that works in the office blew me and my parents up until i paid. i will never make that mistake again. The manager and the location make up for any issues that come up.. i haven't renewed yet but i'm sure i will, i say give the place a chance.

I love living at VC! This is my third year living here and I have signed to live here for my senior year as well. The location is perfect for me to make it to classes on time, as I often over sleep and need to make it to class in a short amount of time. While this is student housing, I think living here has prepared me for when I graduate and I am on my own. People on here are complaining about the price, but they are the cheapest in the area for being so close to campus. In summary, if you are looking to live near campus then there is no better place for you to live!

I love living at VC. It's super close to campus, so I can walk to all my classes and still get the campus life experience. The apartments are clean and new and give a unique student living experience. They have resident events frequently including lots of free food! My roommates and I love it so much, we renewed for next year!

Close to campus which is nice but overpriced, the gym is hardly a gym and has very little equipment. The halls and apartments smell musty and like weed all the time.

They gave us a apartment where a guy peed all over the furniture/carpet and didn't even clean the room before we moved in. Do not stay here if you have other choices. You'll fine it's expensive and not very convenient. Our room a was a 10 min Walk from our cars. Alsor quality checks, we were moved into a room with the absolute worst condition and nobody seed to when do a check before we came. We couldn't really move in until the whole place was re- carpeted.

The only good thing thing about this place was the staff. There was mold EVERYWHERE and so much iron in the water that my drains turned red. Everything got dusty again within an hour of cleaning it. They had people come in and spray for bugs (which we weren't told about) and they sprayed all of my shoes which then grew mold on them (which I'm allergic to). When I told a staff member to tell her boss so it wouldn't happen again, nothing was done about it. If you can live somewhere else, I highly recommend it.

My daughter has lived at Valentine Commons for 3 years now and it has been a great experience for her. The apartments are spacious and the staff is very attentive and helpful. The monthly rent is fair considering the location, amenities and the fact that everything is included. Safety is important as well and living at VC has given her mother and I piece of mind knowing she is safe. There have been a few occasions where maintenance requests have been submitted for her AC unit or misc. appliance repair but each time the issues have been fixed. For college living you can't beat it. I would highly recommend VC!

Good for location, not so great for everything else. Extremely loud neighbors, construction everywhere during summer (which can't be controlled but was still an inconvenience with it going on every road surrounding the parking garage), was told what looked like mold was mildew on our windows and we have "very sound windows" (I still think it was mold), and super tiny living quarters and accommodations for the amount paying to live there. If you want the location it's the perfect place. If you want cheaper living and larger, quieter living spaces, I'd highly suggest looking somewhere else.

My daughter lived there from August 2013 to Fall 2015. She entered as a freshman. I was very impressed with the welcome for new residents, check-in, food on yard and games. It all made her feel like a campus atmosphere. I was paying for two kids in college at the time and the rent was within reason with all utilities covered and if I was delayed I was given notice in a very nice way. I really appreciated our time there and the young people working are polite and helpful. No place will be perfect, but as a mom I felt safe with this place and my daughter had no big complaints. I have referred others I know since I work at a high school & any who may be in Raleigh area for college. I like the place and would say overall it's worth the stay! My daughter decided to relocate but just had to stop by to say Thank You.

These apartments were slapped together so quickly. There was paint runs on the interior doors to my daughters apt. Her roommates bathtub was chipped in several places, there wasn't a rod or door across the closet bedrooms, there was suppose to be a kitchen table and chairs there; when asked about them we were told we wouldn't get one. Where are the students suppose to eat, on the floor!! The four bedroom apts. kitchen is much smaller than the model we were shown. There is no place to put food like can goods or other items. We were told we would have an assigned parking space and that didn't happen. For the money we are paying each month I expected better.
