Calder commons is an overall a nice place to live. The staff is very friendly and maintenance is quick to assist us. However, the apartment building is becoming a little outdated especially with all of the new buildings that are being built.

I like the furniture though I really wish we had five desks instead of three. Our closet light is also very dim but not burnt out so we think it it a problem with the fixture. Besides that everything is good.
