What Other Students Are Saying

Here’s what some of your new neighbors at CountrySide are saying about the lifestyle and amenities.

Having your own private bathroom is key. I can't explain how important that is. Second, all the buildings have locked security. The grounds are well kept and include pool, hot tub, exercise room, volleyball, basketball. Also, very important is that there is tons of free parking for yourself and visitors. The bus picks you up right outside.


This is my first year here and I love it. It is ingenious. Each bedroom has a private full bath and a huge walk-in closet. Everything is included in the rent, even the pool and exercise room. And cable and internet and utilities. I haven't had to worry about going over budget. I am so happy I found this place.


I've lived here five years, and I've never wanted to leave. The rooms are great -- private bathroom, walk-in closet. The common rooms are decorated by the owners -- mine is really colorful. The place is pretty quiet and safe, and there's a ton of no-decal parking! And the bus system is the best.
