The up: Location, location, location. Within walking distance of campus, shops and restaurants.

If you want to live in a prime location, look no further than Holly Park Apartments. The complex’s 192 units in eight buildings do not come furnished, but the location makes the price worth it.
Holly Park is a short walk from campus and includes two ways to get there — up East Main Street or along a path behind the complex that comes out near Tri-Towers. The complex is also right across the street from Acme, which makes grocery shopping convenient.
Gas, water, sewer, trash, Internet and parking are all included in rent. Tenants pay for electric and cable.
Pets: $300 deposit ($100 non-refundable), $15 per month for cats, $23 per month for dogs (must be insured, not a pit bull or pit bull mix)
