The apartments themselves are fine enough, but the incompetence of the management/office staff has left me wishing I had not chosen to live here. In just the first week: 1. I had a scheduled move-in date, but the apartment was not… Full Review ▶

I, Marie Jones and husband K. Ba'Khyr, both Spiritual leaders, have not been in such a good natured environment as Kingswood. The management team is beyond Ph.D professionals. There is nothing like awakening in nature, surrounding this complex with the singing… Full Review ▶

The apartment complex is OK, nothing special and the main benefit is the good closeness to UNC.

Kingsood's real big draw is its low pricing. But now Chapel Hill, and especially surrounding areas (e.g. Carrboro, Durham) have apartments with similar prices as Kingswood, if not cheaper. I really don't recommend this place at all...

While these are affordable for the area, they
are truly "low-rent" apartments. The community is primarily college students, low income families and migrant workers.
