This place is terrible. I lived there for a year thinking it would be a great time but it was far from it. The walls are paper thin so when you're trying to study of sleep, you can hear everything next… Full Review ▶

Just this late spring into summer, I visited Nittany Crossing in hopes to find a nice place to live. When I arrived there, the staff seemed very laid back and friendly, from what I could tell. I took the tour of… Full Review ▶

HORRIBLE TO SAY THE LEAST. Do not live there. Staff is not helpful at all. Upon move in, the key would not go into the door lock. Their answer was to jiggle the key to the right then to the left,… Full Review ▶

HORRIBLE. Save yourself, do not live here. Mean, unhelpful staff members. Apartment was dirty and many things were broken/falling apart when I moved in. Toilet was broken, windows had mold all around them, floors and appliances were dirty, microwave didn't work,… Full Review ▶

Come see for yourself, but when you get here, get a parking pass because if you don't, you WILL get towed. Also, wear a biohazard suit because you will be walking through disgusting mold-filled apartments. You can hop in the pool,… Full Review ▶

DO NOT live at this place! They are horrible, nasty people. They think because you signed a lease they have complete control over you. All they will do is cause you problems and stress. I know several people who have had… Full Review ▶

I would discourage anyone from renting from this property. The property management is only willing to speak with you when you want to rent but when issues arise they suddenly are unavailable. The place is unsafe as our apartment was robbed.… Full Review ▶

The girls in the office are very rude! Watch out for any existing damage when moving in...document everything and take piks because they will try and charge you for damages that were there before you moved in. Full Review ▶

This place is very bad. When I looked at the reviews before I moved in I thought the bad rating was just kids complaining, since all the apartments in the area have generally unfavorable reviews. However, this place is very poor.… Full Review ▶

If you are signing a lease with them, I would encourage you to rethink this decision. Reasons: 1. You have no control over the room you are signing for and what you get might be not livable. In particular, they have… Full Review ▶
