I've been living at Duke Manor for almost a two months now, and so far it has been great. The community itself is pretty active, you always see people walking around, at the fitness center, or hanging out by the pool.… Full Review ▶

DO NOT MOVE INTO DUKE MANOR. The first order of business is the roach pandemic. So aside from sharing your apartment complex with creatures, the student package is misrepresented. We've been paying the front office for 3 months only to find… Full Review ▶

Don't do it!!!! Also, don't be fooled by the positive reviews; the hookers in the rental office are writing them. If you are accustomed to living with roaches; bed-bugs; prostitutes; and drug-dealers----by all means, you are in the perfect place! Full Review ▶
