If you ever want to have people over, don't live here! The security is on a power trip and will shut down any party over 5 people. I would not recommend living here. The owners are not college student friendly.

Puffton is conveniently located about 3 minutes away from UMass and 5 minutes away from downtown Amherst. These are truly the ONLY positive things I can say about this place. It is overflowing with rowdy, disrespectful, drunk undergraduates. They are super loud and they leave beer… See More

Some may say this complex is over-priced, but you are paying for location. The proximity to campus and the constant buses can't be beat. However, if you're looking for posh facilities and apartment fixings, Puffton probably isn't for you. The construction is cheap and the bedrooms… See More
