I've lived in Ivy Commons apartments for three years and overall it's been a really good place to live. I started in a two bedroom with a roommate and when I got married, my husband and I moved into a one… Full Review ▶


This is a great place to live if you want to be close to school. It is also a great place to live if you are fond of cockroaches invading every inch of your apartment Full Review ▶


I am utterly disappointed at the staff's response to the maintenance issues. It seems like they just don't care. They don't properly respond to phone calls even if you leave voicemail. They don't seem to care even if you send email… Full Review ▶


First off, I want to say that while I am choosing not to recommend this place, it actually isn't that bad. If you're looking at Ivy Commons, I assume it is because you are 1. a student at NC State, and… Full Review ▶


In general, I like my apartment. I particularly like the trees and the brick buildings. And I am happy to have gotten to know some nice people who live around me. There are some great folks here. A number of residents… Full Review ▶


Me and my husband had our first apartment at Ivy Commons. It was a great beginning for our relationship. It was never too noisy, I felt safe, and it was awesome rent! we always look back with great memories and overall… Full Review ▶


Well, the buildings that are on Avent Ferry became very insecure and extremely noisy for the past 6 months...The environment and the staff used to be nice, yet everything has changed. Police came to my door twice to ask if I… Full Review ▶

I'm writing from the perspective of a potential tenants to those interested in getting a place at Ivy Commons. The apartment complex looks wonderful, the rooms are spacious, but renters beware! The staff is probably some of the most difficult-to-deal-with human… Full Review ▶


This is truly a great place to live. Just a stones throw away from the new campus and near the old one too! And it is quiet for the most part. A few bugs, but can get worked out. All in… Full Review ▶


The repairman attempted to tow my cars twice. Be careful, they never give a notice to warn you. They just tow...My car was towed as there was a small crack on the mirror and they claimed they couldn't see the sticker,… Full Review ▶


I have lived at Ivy Commons in a one bedroom with my fiance for a year now. The first year made me want to pull my hair out! I live on the first floor and the people above me played music… Full Review ▶


I spent 3 years in a 2 bedroom at $600 a month and 1 year in a single bedroom. The 2 bedroom was amazing at about 1000 sq ft. It was very well laid out and had plenty of open space… Full Review ▶


I am happily living at Ivy Commons since the last 2 years and I think this is the best place to leave around Campus. I am very happy that they have 0-tolerance policy to dog owners. I mean who likes to… Full Review ▶


I lived a 1 bedroom for 1 year and 2 bedroom for 2 years between crest rd. and
Avent Ferry for 3 years. The 2 bedroom seemed to be very reasonable at $600/month.
The location is great with a short walk… Full Review ▶


If you're looking for a nice, affordable, quiet apartment complex near NC State and downtown, then Ivy Commons is the place for you. It doesn't have some of the ammenities that other apartment complexes do (pools, fitness center, etc), but you… Full Review ▶


Ivy Commons has been great since Ammons-Pittman has taken over the service contract for most of the condominiums. AP took over in late 2002 and has been very responsive to resident concerns in all aspects. They are quick to resolve problems… Full Review ▶
