Jun 2019: I lived at The District for the 2016-2017 school year and I never felt safe there. The back entrance was almost always broken (either the key fob wouldn't scan, so the apartment would just unlock the door, or someone just shattered the glass door to get in). For two weeks the door was shattered and the administration did nothing about it. Since it was so easy to get in, many homeless people came in during the night and walked the halls. Once, someone knocked on my door and yelled, "Security!". I looked through the peephole and it was not someone associated with the apartment complex. I still shudder when I think about what that man could have done to me if I had opened the door.
Parents, do NOT let your children live here. They are unsafe and could get seriously hurt.
I have lived at The Vic for two years now and love it. I have never felt unsafe.
May 2019: What an absolutely awful place to live. Pfalzgraf Communities is the worst. Everything the employees tell you is a lie. The new owners have spent insane amounts of money to make this place look nice. This is only skin deep. The apartments themselves get no improvements. They posted a picture with a kitchenette, maybe the display unit has one, but none of the rental units have them. Half the laundry machines are always broken.
They are going to sell you on a half a dozen amenities, that they will lock down and take away with no explanation. The internet service they claim is fantastic is unreliable at best. Every floor floods during heavy rain, bugs are everywhere, the parking lot is always full of trash.
don't be fooled. Review from Google
Apr 2019: This is an amazing place to live, front desk staff are kind and truly good people, maintenance is always imoroving the building and is prompt to fix any issue in your room. They have renovated the building beautifully along with the courtyard, comouter lab, and pool. Never had an issue with bad neighbors, its clean and safe here. Couldnt be happier with my living situation here. Review from Google
Mar 2019: Although things are improving there are still a lot of things that need to be fixed. For example, the kitchen oven doors are broken and some of them don't work, and the kitchen trash overflows a lot. Then the game and computer room should be open 24/7, or at least way longer than midnight and 6pm. I feel like since we're college students our amenities should be geared towards college students. Most college students do their hw late at night or after work and class so it's pointless to have rooms like that when we can't fully utilize them so to the hours put on them. If cameras are in place their should be no reason why the both the gameroom and computer/group room can't stay open 24/7. The security for the building needs to improve as well. Other than that the district is a pretty good place to stay I like that everything is all included into one price and no overages. Also I like the events and fun things they do for the residents Review from Google
Mar 2019: I have lived here for 2 years. 3 stars because although its far from perfect its hard to beat for the price in this area.
First the good. New ownership has genuinely improved this place a lot. new paint, elevators redone, courtyard redone, better internet allegedly in the works. They put their money where there mouth is for sure. Also the staff is very friendly (The girl at the front desk has my name and room number memorized, and I don't even see her that much). and for the price its hard to beat being equal distance from the center of downtown and college hill. plus all the utilities are included. Just pay the rent and everything else is taken care of.
Now the bad: heat and a/c is an ancient system that has to be switched over buildingwide, which results in 80+ degree apartments with no remedy in the spring when it starts to really warm up, and cold apartments in the fall when it starts to cool off Review from Google
Mar 2019: Hi! We are currently under new management with Pfalzgraf Communities and we will be unveiling our renovated resort style pool at the end of May 2019. We have also added a renovated unit as of March 2019 and this will be at a different market rate from the classic unit. We would love to invite you to stop by for a tour of our newly renovated amenities! We are sure that you would love it. Should you decide to lease for 12 months, we will also pay for one of your classes!! We look forward to seeing you soon!! Review from Google
Mar 2019: As a resident, I have always been greeted warmly by the staff and had an overall positive experience. As a parent, I would feel very comfortable with my son or daughter living here. The staff goes out of their way to interact with those residing in the apartments- this is very important to me, because it demonstrates their commitment to the community and the often young residents. I would recommend this place to others; it is quiet and condusive to a positive college experience. (No kitchens in the apartment also mean parents can rest easily, knowing inexperienced cooks won't burn down the place!) Thank you to the staff for this wonderful second home! Review from Google
Sep 2018: Nice, peaceful place to live. Elvis Presley walks the hallways! Review from Google
What is the benefit of a relet over a sublease? A relet is a much cleaner agreement. The original leasee is no longer liable for any unpaid rent, or damages. This means there is a clean cut-over and has much less risk to the original leasee. While there is usually a little cost involved with th...read more
Sep 2018: I've been living at the District for almost 2 years and I have no complaints. The staff are really helpful and respectful which is a plus. Walking to and from my desired destination I feel safe because to get in the building you have to have a FOB and that's for all doors. The new owners are remodeling the building so it looks nice. As long as you come in before 5:30 you can take a free tour of the building. Review from Google
Aug 2018: I was here for 2 years. August 2014 to 2016. They didn't have my carpet and bathroom fixed before I moved in. It's quite pricy I think. Before I moved in there were rumors about rodents creeping in, but I can't quite remember seeing one. The place improved a lot. Review from Google
May 2018: No AC or Heat control. Not the most comfortably place to live. But a good price Review from Google
Apr 2018: I've been living here for the past 4 months (Jan 2017 to April 2018) and have zerocomplaints to post. All amenities are free and the office has always been helpful. A new company just recently took new ownership of the building and has been fixing it up, including paint jobs and maintenance work. The doors operate on FOBs so I've never felt unsafe. Review from Google
Mar 2018: Pretty great experience and its a single bedroom its a great community and also comes with some great perks such as a awesome front desk and service from everyone there! Friendly , quick to fix small issues and they even allow events to be hosted in the lounge and for artist there to participate in the art of the building. If your looking for somewhere permanent this is not it , unless you live minimally and don't mind mind some rather small and minor problems that come at any building or place you live . kitchen downstairs , gym , and pool , also a nice lounge area to relax and do work. P.S LOVE THE STAFF Review from Google
Dec 2017: Awful place to live if you're a college student. The wifi is spotty at best, really only working at the level a student needs it to during the middle of the day; good luck if it's after 8pm. The "quiet time" they advertise during finals week really means "time for all unnecessary maintenance." The entire week of finals I have been woken up at 7am due to the excessive amount of noise around the complex. The only thing keeping me here is the price, which quite honestly is becoming less appealing. Review from Google
Aug 2017: DO NOT LIVE HERE. Man, where do you even begin. This old building and its facilities require seemingly daily repairs, there is literally always something broken and nothing gets fixed quickly. One of the entry doors was out of order for over a month during my 2 month stay. The AC constantly went out, and when it was on it wasn't exactly effective, with no possibility of your room being below 74 degrees.
The apartments have no lights! There is a tiny light at the door and that is it other then the bathroom. You could see the foundation between the end of the floor molding and the beginning of the floor. The hallways reeked of mold and cigarette smoke. The pool was open for all of 3 days before being closed and emptied due to vandalism. Wifi was spotty at best. Road noise is awful for those on lower floors. Elevators ran amuck and residents wer Review from Google
Jun 2017: You get what you pay for. Safety was always a problem with the door constantly being broken or kicked down. The noise from tenants was constant. And most importantly, my apartment had a severe moldproblem that made me sick. It was never addressed and when I moved out they moved someone else right in. I complained more than once and wish that I would have taken it further. Do not rent here. Review from Google
Apr 2017: Management is amazing and always helpful, but be seriously warned, the internet is AWFUL. Really slow, goes off many times and jumps among different routers. The internet service providers can only do so much if the hardware on site does not function properly so it is fruitless to call them. If you are willing to pay more to get your own internet line this place is great.

Feb 2017: This was by far the best apartment I've lived in. Quiet place to live. The numerous amenities are a plus. I enjoyed the gym and pool the most. I also liked that it was secure access to the all buildings. Also there is usually security on staff at night, that was cool. My experience with the leasing office was amazing. Whenever I needed Tabitha or Gillian they were always available and willing to help. Definitely going to miss living at this place! Review from Google
Jan 2017: I have to say, I've been living here for about 4 months now and I love it! I love the leasing agents, who are so nice & helpful, and the price really can't be beat. It's unfortunate that a lot of the negative reviews I've read seem to be false in some way, as I have loved living here and knew what I was getting into upon move in. A lot of reviewers are complaining about the actual room itself, which you can get a detailed tour of before move in if you just ask, so complaining about that doesn't really make sense unless you didn't take a tour and had no idea what you're getting into upon moving in. But yeah, I have lived in 1 other apartment in Greensboro and in comparison, this place is The Ritz!

Dec 2016: The management at the District often times do not address the safety of residents in a serious way such as ensuring that everyone's security is of the utmost importance and also handling problems that are of a serious nature such as assault, stalking, and other crime-related activities. They need to update the building from start to finish so to better provide an adequate and holistic atmosphere for all those students residing within it's walls. The pool often times was not cleaned resulting in several moles and other algae-related organisms to grow within its boundaries. Overall, the complex needs to improve significantly and also do a more thorough background check on potential residents who are planning to call this place home. Review from Google
Oct 2015: District at West Market, Is a nice place, in a great location in the downtown, Greensboro, NC area, The building has a remodel work out room, with new equipment, plus yoga room, at great game room, with 70 inch TV, The studios are painted, and remodel with nice furniture, full cable upgrade with internet that is Wi-Fi through out the entire building, nice plush swimming pool that is 9 feet deep in a court yard area, upgrade laundry room with new tile floors, and laundry price are very reasonable, The staff are very excellent, they have been patient with me thought all my problems, The building well kept up and clean, no bugs or rodents, Great atmosphere, with also a kitchen area with 3 flat top stoves to cook on, with a large, spacious dinning room.

Oct 2015: I've been staying at The District since August 2015 and I've been loving it. My experience here has been one of a kind and I wouldn't trade it. Here you can study in a peaceful environment and after studies you can go to the gym or even head to the game room for some fun. The staff here is excellent with assisting residents. The District is a great place to live giving you your own space for a goodcost downtown.
