Urban was a great experience for my Senior JMU student! She loved being near downtown yet within walking distance to the campus. Management was awesome, always tending to their needs in a timely manner. Loved the wood floors, granite countertops, sliding doors.

DON'T DO IT! Living in urban only appears nice, but it isn't. Signing the paperwork more or less allows the management to bend you over, tie you down, and penetrate your sweet, sweet butt. $2000 is what they said we owed in fees after my roommate… See More
