I enjoy my apartment community, especially in my own apartment, but the halls and elevators are usually not clean. Although we’ve already needed several repairs in the apartment, the maintenance people are nice and never take long to fix things. Still, it’s frustrating that the halls are usually dirty, people leave smelly trash outside their doors, and things like that. Despite that, overall I do enjoy my apartment and living experience.
Grandmarc is in a very convenient location and is generally pretty nice. My only complaint would be that it is usually not very clean and has weird smells as a result.
Occasionally very loud; system for noise complaints is unclear. Maintenance takes days/weeks to respond to very simple requests even with constant reminders.
I love the location and the units are a great size. I think that there could be better response time on the maintenance repairs such as the outside doors not locking.
My roommates are not the best but grandmarc location keeps me happy with the choice I’ve made. Plus the kitchen is very nice and the closet space is great.
Living here has been very great! the facilities are kept up well, i am in a great location, and i get to live with my close friends. everyone who works here is super nice as well
I really enjoy my apartment community because the living space is very nice, has everything I need, and many of my good friends live in the same building.
sometimes it is very noisy, and the wall is thin. I hate the noise and the heavy footstep of the person who is living above me, my room just shaking when he/she walks.
I love living here at Grandmarc. The maintenance staff is so helpful and is on call at all times if there is any problem at all. Not to mention, the staff in the lobby are always open to any sort of question a person may have and are super welcoming.
The apartment community at Grandmarc is unique. Housing primarily 2nd and 3rd year undergraduate students at the University of Virginia makes it a very close-knit and fun place to live. The actual apartment is very nice, and the staff is very accommodating.
I love everyone here. Everyone in this apartment is basically the same year as me. The parts that are a bit negative are the worn down stoves and the air conditioning, but other than that, I am enjoying living here.
Grandmarc is great. Even though limes end up in the pool and puke ends up outside my door on Friday mornings, I still feel like I am surrounded by a great group of people all the time.
Great location and service. I moved into grandmarc in August and have had very few problems since then. Anytime I do have a problem in my apartment (appliances, etc.), help is quick to come.
On Tuesday, Thrusday, Friday, and Saturday nights, it gets too loud. Moreover, there are many leaks and the leasing office got mad at me for calling about leaks.
Living here is great! Great staff and the units are super nice. Everything comes fully furnished which is great for a college student. It’s also nice to be so close to school.
Grand Marc is a welcoming community and most of my friends live here. It is quiet enough to concentrate and study and also fun during the weekends.
The WiFi is shaky but it’s clean and affordable! I really love the people who work at the front desk during the day, they are wonderful and very helpful!
The community here is great and everyone is very kind and welcoming! Living here is super fun! Everyone at the leasing office is always very nice and willing to help!
I have called maintenance so many times and they are quick, efficient, and so friendly. I love the grandmarc maintenance team and the relationship that i am slowly making with them.
Although it gets a little wild on the weekend, it’s a great location and most of my friends live here. I think it’s a great place to live second year
Although noisy on the weekend, Grandmarc offers a great location, a fun living community, and a variety of amenities that make my second year amazing!!
Great location, fun environment, and friendly people. The only issue we have had so far is the wifi, which crashed twice in one week. I'm very happy with my decision to live in grandmarc this year!
It is in a great location and the size of the apartments are great! I really like my balcony and they service any problems very quickly. I would choose this place again!
The location is extremely convenient. Being within walking distance to the Corner and Grounds takes off so much stress. The staff is always super helpful and accommodating. However, the hallways can get messy after weekends, and it takes awhile to be cleaned. Other than that, I love it.
Grandmarc has wonderful staff and is in a perfect location to access both the Corner and Grounds. One downfall is the lack of cleanliness in the hallways, but i know that that is usually a resident’s fault. I would also like if we could get the wifi to stop crashing and if our work orders would be fulfilled. Other than that, this was a wonderful place to live for my second year here at UVA.
I have loved living in grandmarc! It always smells good when I come home, and my room is spacious and has truly begun to feel like home. I am close to my classes and the corner and have been more involved as a result
Living in the grandmarc community has been a great experience so far everyone is nice and it’s a great location within minutes to the corner and everywhere I need to go
We never have wifi and the apartment is overpriced considering the noise level and lack of consistent amenities. Please fix the awful boingo wifi.
Good friends and convenient location. Also, right by the corner, so easy access to groceries. It's a 3 minute ride to grounds. Quick and efficient.
Its really loud, dirty and unsanitary. While the people are nice as a whole when you talk to them, they are very inconsiderate and leave messes everywhere. The staff is a bit catty.
Some things are broken and there should be more maps. The apartments are spacious and well furnished. There should be a basketball court instead of a pool.
Great besides broken things not being fixed. The kitchen is very nice and the bathroom is very nice, but the showers have bad water pressure and two of the four showers had major issues.
Maintenance is often unresponsive, I had to call multiple times over two weeks just to get my door knob fixed. Other than that, the elevators often go down, the WiFi has gone out twice in the span of two weeks.
I like my house a lot, the only problem about it is the noise and the bad wifi connection in my room. Except those 2 Grandmarc is a really nice place to live.
Overall no major problems, but maintenance is essentially nonexistent. Could be a lot worse, there usually aren’t many issues with noise and whatnot
A positive environment, friendly staff, and nice facilities are just a few of the reasons I love living and Grandmarc. I often study with my friends in the lobby!
My stay in grandmarc has been awesome thus far. My room and facilities have worked without error and my roommates and I get along great. Compared to living in dorms last year, it’s so convenient where grandmarc is located.
It is a good location with good people, but the wifi goes out frequently and the kitchen amenities are outdated. The parking is pretty overpriced as well. The pool is nice.
My time here at grandmarc, while short, had already been extraordinary. The Grandmarc community is amazing. My apartment and the common areas are modern and well maintained.
Been really awesome so far. Only main issue we had was with the wifi, for a 3-day period it wasn’t working. Other than that, the furnishings in the apartment have been good and everything's worked smoothly.
I really love it here at grandmarc. There are great people and my room/living room is fantastic. I haven't had any major problems with my room yet either.
I am happy living here and enjoy the convenient location and nice amenities. I enjoy that it is fully furnished and that my friends all live close.
the location makes the living community the best. plus it has a reputation around grounds which means that many people are likely to live here, making it a fun enviroment
Overall, my Grandmarc experience has been really good! The management has been helpful when we had a problem with appliances. The only downfall is living train-track side and it being incredibly loud at night.
Very fun. The amouny of time I spend walking to class is made up by all of my friends living here. It maybe farther than dorms but it is a much better experience and this is only 5 days in. I love to cook and my lack of meal plan gets me to do it more often.
Having a great experience here. I particularly love the fact that I'm not paying for all the utilities. With all of the features and inclusions, it's definitely an amazing price for an apartment that I have now.
Love the building, room, and vibe! Everyone here has been very nice and welcoming and the community feels very tight knit. I'm excited for the rest of the year!
Really great location and convenient to be with friends and get to classes! The staff is really friendly and makes the move in process easy.
Big rooms, nice kitchen, big pool, nice gym, lots of friends its so great, I am living with 3 roommates that are nice and the door is easy to open which makes life easier
The building is loud and pretty dirty. Good location and layouts/apartment size is good, but not much else. Staff is pretty unhelpful. Not worth the money.
I am excited to live at GrandMarc because it is so close to the Corner. There are a lot of good restaurants nearby so the location is probably the best thing.
GrandMarc is awesome! Living there is so great and it is lots of fun. There is a gym, pool, and I get my own bedroom and bathroom. Super excited to be living here!
Overall, not a bad experience at Grandmarc. Noise levels have never been a problem except for the surrounding bars. Upkeep of the building and hallways leaves a lot to be desired.
I haven’t moved in yet but I have called grandmarc with questions regarding my apartments and future living situation. Everyone has been very helpful and kind!
A great place to live! Would not live anywhere else due to amenities and neatness. The location of the place is great as it is close to all of my classes!
Good place to live, too expensive. Excited to live here. Rewards points. Rewards points. Rewards points.Rewards points.Rewards points.Reward
Great so far! The location and atmosphere are truly unmatched for UVA students. I do wish the gym was a little bigger, but other than that I have no complaints!
Loud but friendly. A great community of people but hard to study on the weekends because of all the noise. Maintenance could be better but it's not terrible.
Nice place to live, pretty close to grounds, CA's and staff are quite friendly and are always there when you need assistance. The building is usually clean in an acceptable manner but can be better in that regard. Thumbs up otherwise.
I love grandmarc! It is the best place to stay. I haven’t moved in yet but I know it’s great because all of the my friends lived there last year
I felt like grandmarc was extremely safe and the people were really friendly. It wasn’t pretty loud sometimes but honestly it’s loud anywhere there are other students.
I am so super excited to be able to live here for my second year at the University of Virginia. I have heard so many good things about Grandmarc, and I am especially excited for the community that it will provide me with.
GrandMarc provides a wonderful community feel with a place to live and flourish! I'm a recent addition to the resident experience and I absolutely love the vibe of this place!
So far with my experience at Grandmarc, I have absolutely loved living there. I am always treated with the utmost respect and I very much so look forward to the rest of the year.
Living here is very convienent for class and social life. All my friends live here too and i love that it is furnished but i wish the furniture colors were different
I like grandmarc grandmarc is good and fun and cool and I like it and It is fun and cool and I really enjoy it and I love grandmarc and the people and I think Im close to my reward ight bet
It’s great and I’m excited to live there. I am glad i got to choose my roommates and that there were many types of apartments I could choose from.
It was great! let me start by saying that I have traveled long distances in conventional kayaks ranging from $2500 fiberglass ocean kayaks to the cheaper kind that most rental places have, these kayaks are not for long distance travel but great for shorter day trips. I bought these because I already own 2 5-air-chamber Coleman inflatables and have so much fun on them I wanted to buy 2 more so friends could come out with me and my husband, unfortunately Coleman has stopped making them, too bad because they are the best, and were only $80 each (p.s. I've had them for 10 years now). When I found these I read just about every review from good to bad but because the price is low I thought it would be worth the investment. I am 5'10" with long legs and 170 lbs, I was very comfortable and felt that I had enough room.
so far so good, have yet to move in but this community seems good. they’re very cooperative and have helped with all the questions that we have.
Grandmarc was very helpful throughout my moving process. They always kept me and my suitemates updated through every step of this stressful journey. I was very concerned about living in an apartment complex but they have soothed all of my worries.
Building has definately seen some wear, paint is peeling, elevators arent working. But otherwise building is very nice. Fitness center is OK, and theatre is no longer available. Staff is attentive, and rooms are very nice
My apartment community is great. I love the people I’m living with, they’re some of my best friends. I also have a wonderful amount of friends also living in Grandmarc. It’s also a great location!
Great place to live. Grandmarc is an awesome location and it’s always really fun. The rooms are clean and spacious. I love living with my friends.
one of the greatest perks is the location and the fact that so many people (mainly 2nd years) choose to live here, making it one of the best options
I think GrandMarc is the perfect location. The layout of our apartment is awesome! I love how close it is to the corner and how friendly all of the employees are
Love grandmarc! Location is perfect and very close to the corner. People are awesome and it's perfect that so many second year UVA students live there because all my friends are just steps away!
Great location and perfect for uva students wanting to live close to classes and the corner. Love the attached garage as well. The units are very spacious and I love that they’re already furnished!
I haven’t lived there yet but it is pricey considering we have to pay for electricity separately. The fact that it’s mostly second years is the only reason why I chose it.
I've only just begun living there, but I cant wait to move in in the fall! The emails and staff have been extremely helpful, and the apartments have been clean and pretty when I visited.
“Yes,” Ted said, “and we’ve already agreed that gravity is a curvature of space-time, like the curve of this bowl. Any baseball on Earth must move along the same curve of [] space-time, as this ball bearing moves along this bowl. Look.” He put the orange back in the bowl. “Here’s the Earth.” He put two fingers on opposite sides of the orange. “Here’s batter and fielder. Now, roll the ball bearing from one finger to the other, and you’ll find you have to accommodate the curve of the bowl. Either you flick the ball lightly and it will roll close to the orange, or you can give it a big flick and it will go way up the side of the bowl, before falling down again to the other side. But you can’t make this ball bearing do anything you want, because the ball bearing is moving along the curved bowl.
The community here has been great and has definitely been an important part of the mentally- and physically-healthy living situation all around.
I have yet to move in, however, I believe that the process of roommate matching and how early one must sign their lease to get a spot in grandmarc is less than ideal. Signing a lease early on in first semester of first year is not ideal for anyone. If there was a way to move back when housing is requested that would make the whole process much more enjoyable.
Living at Grandmarc is a worthwhile experience because it is centrally located to the corner, it’s safe, and an easy walk to grounds, comparable to the distance to dorms.
I love it here at grandmarc, it is a really cool place. I have the 4 occ 2 bedroom and enjoy the living room. However I live in front of the corner so it is a bit noisy.
i am super excited to be living in grandmarc this year! A lot of people talk about how good it is and I have also seen it personally. Im excited
Great location by The Corner. Also has friendly staff and amenities, such as a fitness center and pool. Apartments are spacious and very clean.
Been pretty good so far. Nice people anannaanwnnendjsk Siemens Siemens ieejnawkrn sooee prods. Eoxixnr eodo Diane kekene ekeks rkdkcnrrj dmdmd
Noise is a real downside, and needs some updating and maintenance. Convenient and a great community but it’s obvious why people don’t live here for more than a year
My experience and Grandmarc has been great simply becaude the location is wonderful. However, I am very disappointed with the upkeep of the building. There is trash in the stare wells consistently, the pool is disgusting (obviously not cleaned), and the AC HAS BEEN BROKEN IN THE GYM FOR FOREVER.
It’s a cool place. The pool is very nice. It feels like you’re at a hotel. I also used the gym a lot, except they don’t clean the gym. I know this because there was a ton of dust all over the equipment
So far, Grandmarc has been very helpful in the lease-signing process. When my roommate and I toured, the tour guide was very respectful and knowledgable, and the room looked great.
I had a good stay at Grandmarc. The staff was mostly helpful and I had a fun experience living in the apartment I lived in. The amenities were nice and sufficient for my needs. However, the cleanliness of the main areas could have been better.
Very close to ground that my brother genuinely spent more time in his studio than here. The workout facility is open 24/7, 365 days a year. It's open al the time that we genuinely had it all for ourselves in the winter break while everyone was away. Love it.
Overall it was a solid experience living here. I enjoyed the kindness of the staff and overall support provided. Building could have been cleaner, but it was nice.
I’ve enjoyed living in Grandmarc for the most part. Maintenance is slow and the grounds sometimes go unkept too long. But noise level, room size, and location are all good.
My experience as a resident at GrandMarc has been very stress free. The furnished apartments help the move in process. The community has lots of activities as well.
Bad maintenance, good location, poor value for the price. Everything breaks in the apartment and doesn't get fixed until months later. Would never live here again.
Grandmarc has so many benefits. The amenities included are pristine and the price is unreal. I love living in this community because there's always people around to hangout with.
i have had a blast living at grandmarc because of its close proximity to the corner and so many second years also live here. one con is that this place becomes party central on the weekends and the halls, etc. are usually trashed as a result.
Leasing office is disorganized. Apartment is great. Love my place. Hallways/elevators and stairwells are messy sometimes and should be cleaned more often
I love my apartment and the Grandmarc community. The location is perfect for class and for social outings. The apartment itself is great because there is room for four people to live comfortably and the furniture is nice.
Living in grandmarc compared to dorms has been an interesting experience. I enjoy the liveliness and energetic atmosphere. However, we have had a number of difficulties in the apartment, especially regarding the garbage disposal and the bathroom.
I love Grandmarc overall! The apartment is nice, maintenance is responsive to our needs, and so many second years live in the building - it's really fun and convenient. The walls are a little thin so it gets noisy but it's definitely livable.
Great staff! Super receptive to resident requests and I love all of the initiative the staff takes to offer free food and host events. The work staff is also very quick
Staff was very helpful as I was searching for an apartment. They're all very friendly and requests are taken care of quickly. There are a few weak points here and there but my experience is a pleasant one.
I love my apartment and the Grandmarc community. The location is perfect for class and for social outings. The apartment itself is great because there is room for four people to live comfortably and the furniture is nice.
Living here has been great. I love the pool area, and all our appliances have worked all year long. I live in a single occupancy double room, and its awesome. The rooms are huge, and so are the beds. Having my own bathroom is nice too.
I have had wonderful experiences here. The apartments are beautiful and the staff is very kind and welcoming. This will be the third year that I will be living at Grandmarc!
Two burners on my stovetop have been broken all year and the light bulb in the fridge never worked even when we first moved it. The walls are really thin, but other than those things, I'm really enjoying grandmarc
I love living here! Grandmarc has a great location and the staff is always friendly and very helpful when we need them. It is so much fun living here!
The free food is great! The hallways are always very gross though, and I’ve almost stepped in puke a few times. I appreciate that they’re locking the front door now
Great complex. Very quite in my side of the building. Very convenient that printing is free. The lobby is a great place to study. Very good pricing too!
My resident experience so far has been great, the only problem that I have encounter has been that the elevator between the split level often does not work. Other than that my experience has been great.
The building is decent, not cleaned very often. There isn’t really a sense of community between residents. The staff tried their best to be helpful.
I love having my own room and bathroom. The hallways can be very messy and it can be quite loud but other than that it is a fine place to live for a second year.
Great so far. Lots of good perks and close to the corner. Maintenance is good and quick to come when things need to be fixed. Overall, great experience.
Grandmarc is a great place to live because it's such a hub for UVA second years and almost all of my friends live in the same building this year.
Loud and there are cockroaches everywhere but the location is good with respect to the corner. However, trekking for 25 minutes to get to the e-school every morning has been a struggle this semester. Overall its a decent place to live. Its well known so its kind of a good meeting place for friends and good place to have gatherings
The apartment and the building especially are not clean. It is always very loud and the staff is not very helpful about fixing it. The couches and chairs are the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat on.
Grandmarc is kind of an okay place to live the location is great but I'm not going to live there again next year because it is too expensive for what it is.
I love my room and the staff is really friendly. The kitchen is huge and the living room is such a good size to have friends over. Grandmarc is such a fun place to live at!
Excellent service. Maintenance is always on time and the rooms are nice and spacious. Staff puts on good events during stressful times such as finals
My experience has been good overall. The office has been helpful with any issues that have occurred. Sometimes the elevator does not work which is inconvenient.
I'm mainly attracted to the location of Grandmarc since it's right on the corner, which is super convenient when wanting to walk to class or go hang out on the corner.
I love my roommates which makes all the difference because the apartment is pretty small. The location makes up for the not so great appliances.
I've really enjoyed the occasional resident appreciation gifts such as the breakfast in bed. The only thing that could be improved in is the hot tub. Why on Earth can't it be fixed? Just do it. Then maybe I'll want to renew a lease here.
Its alright kind it of dirty gets really load and the people just barge in your room when they wanna check it probably wont live her again nit home ly
Im having a great time. Grandmarc is really providing all i need and more in order for me to succeed here at UVA. My living situation is immaculate.
I lived in this place for two months and I really liked here. People are nice and helpful, so I am going to stay here again next semester I guess.
Good place to live. Very close to grounds, only about a ~10 minute walk to the lawn. Fairly quiet and clean. Strong sense of community. Overall a positive experience.
The maintenence service has been incredible so far. They always come when there is an emergency no matter what time or what day. They are always polite and respectful of the tenants' privacy.
Is in a great location. I cannot complain about much for the place. Some problems getting lease done quickly but that's because it was a sublease. All in all good
I love living close to grounds, and with all my friends nearby to me. Many second years live in Grandmarc, so it is great to just have to walk down a flight of stairs to hangout with them!
fine ogg booka hakka lakka idk what to write I dont really care just tryna see what this is tryna get points am I almost at 140 oh 12 away and im done
It's been a great experience living in grandmarc so far. People have been kind, nice, warm, welcoming, and congenial. I really appreciate the community of 2nd years that are in Grandmarc
Nice living situation. Not that good service. It is fairly slow and inept. Rent is also overpriced. Environment is good though. Would prefer management to keep the hallways and lobby cleaner.
I like my apartment but I feel like the building is dirty and loud, the staff reallly aren’t that helpful usually. Location is great though.
I love the convivence of Grandmarc's location. It has been a huge improvement from living in dorms last year. The only problem I have been having is that the split floor elevator keeps breaking.
The community is a bit noisy at times, but the location is great and the apartments are priced reasonably. It’s great to live in a large community like Grandmarc
The grandmarc has nice apartments with nice furniture but is a very loud place. Also, when submitting maintenance requests we have never really had our problems fixed. Sometimes they just don’t even show up..
I enjoy living in gmarc because of the social aspect that comes with it. A lot of my friends live here which makes it easy to hang out or meet up. However, the maintenance is a pretty significant issue. I have made several maintenance orders, but nobody ever responded to them. We have also had a couple of issues with the apartment such as leaking toilet, broken bed etc. unfortunately the pool is also disgusting since nobody seems to ever clean it. Noise is also somewhat of an issue. The walls are extremely thin making it easy to hear through them. Our upstairs neighbor for example walks and jumps (it seems like) very loudly. So loud sometimes I am almost concerned that our ceiling is gonna collapse. Other than that my experience has been enjoyable so far.
While Grandmarc has been a great place for me to easily sign seperate leases and love with my friends, I have found the building to be pretty disorganized. It’s reputation as dirty is not wrong (although you can of course choose to keep your own unit clean). The location and price along with it being unfurnished is unbeatable but I hope they restart this place under the new owndership
I like living here, but it can be a bit loud and sometimes the stairwells have a lot of trash in them which is gross.Other than that, my experience has been pretty good.
Too many maintenance issues that were left untouched for several weeks. Even when I was told they would come the next day, they wouldn’t for successive weeks. Aside from that it’s been great!
I like living in Grandmarc but it can be a little loud and is not somewhere I want to be during my fourth year of college. I also like my apartment because I have a very big room
Apartment is large and nice stairwells are just a little smelly / messy. Love the location - wish it was easier to get a parking spot on the same floor of the garage as your apartment
Great time living here, great people and amenities are clean. Love the gym and the staff. Proximity to corner is amazing and the commute to classes is fun.
The apartment itself is nice. It’s a great location to the corner and all my class which is very convenient. Also, it’s a nice size for 4 people.
Excellent living conditions all around. Nothing to complain about. However, sometimes the hallways have trash from other residents and I believe that should be dealt with.
Grandmarc has a prime location which attracts many students. The rooms are also furnished which is one reason I liked the idea of living here.
Nice apartment, furnished, nothing was broken and was fairly clean. The outside security is somewhat lacking as the doors sometimes will just open without using a key. Overall good living experience so far.
I really liked the location of GrandMarc. It is convenient when I have to go to class in the morning but is also really nice when I am going out and having a good time with my friends at night.
The management has been helpful when approached, yet we put in a few work orders for safety concerns in our apartment in the beginning of move-in, the safety concerns (our door) have still not been resolved. The work team came by our room two weeks ago and told us it would be fixed within 48 hours, yet it has not been fixed nor has the team approached us again to give us an update.
Wish there was cross-ventilation, but I'm in a nice and cozy apartment and served by some great staff. Internet and cable services aren't the best, but all other amenities are various and useful.
The staff here have been really friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, the place itself gets very dirty and gross during the weekends due to its residents. Nevertheless, the staff does what they can to make it enjoyable.
Living at grandmarc is great, I love the gym and the study areas! The people in the lobby are always really helpful and knowledgable. Wouldn't want to live anywhere else!
The 2 bed 2 bath apartment is a great size and so far the only complaints I have are with the administration. It takes awhile to get anything done, and sometimes gets annoying due to the high cost of living at Grandmarc.
The apartments are very big and the furniture is nice compared to most places. It is pretty noisy most nights. Also, no one ever fixed our door and it’s been a month
Great location, great ammenity. I love the gym and the staffs. If you love music and party, this may be the place for you. If you don't like anything loud (like myself), Friday nights and Saturday nights could be a little bothering. Overall, it is a nice place.

At first, it was hard to connect to the wifi and it took a while but once we got situated the apartment is very nice. I like it being furnished and the fact that the location is right on the Corner and close to grounds
The apartment is very spacious and conveniently located. The neighborhood is pretty noisy though. Music from bars, restaurants, and fraternities can be heard on most nights. My apartment also overlooks the train tracks which isn't ideal when a train comes by at 4 am. Earplugs are a must
im liking it a lot so far. The first 1 week the WiFi was no where to be seen so that was a little annoying. But I love my apt overall and the pool and the community in general.
I have loved living here. I actually left, lived somewhere else, and came back. It truly feels like home. The apartments are spacious with the perfect amount of privacy and common area. And the community in the complex is very friendly.
Generally a good place. People are nice here, staffs are helpful. But it is not a quite place even at late night. There is a railway track outside my room, train passes serveral times a day, including late mid night, which is quite annoying. Besides, there is always someone having parties with very loud music until even after 3am. This situation continues since I moved in. Hope there should be an improvement of the window in order to prevent noise.
Honestly speaking, GrandMarc at Corner is doing pretty good. The staff is friendly and helpful, and I can see that they have the passion for this job. I will definitely recommend this apartment.
really great community of people and the location is very central and near all the greatest hotspots. this is a popular option for a reason and i am excited for the year.
It looks nice and welcoming. When I went to visit the community seemed very welcoming and it’s something I look forward to when I move in this semester.
I absolutely loved living in Grandmarc because of how easy the staff was to work with. The office is conveniently located and open for many hours every single day of the week. Events and amenities really enhanced the experience.
Great location! I love how close Grandmarc is to the corner and grounds! It is such a convenient place to live since its in close proximity to food and shops!
Great set up and great apartment right in the heart of Charlottesville, Virginia, which is such a great college town and home to University of Virginia.
When first beginning my apartment search the people at grandmarc were so incredibly helpful and really made me feel at home about the process of moving into my first apartment! I have yet to actually move in but signing all the lease papers, guarantor forms, etc. was a very smooth process because of the grandmarc staff. Thank you!
I had a good time but maintenance was bad. It maintenance was better and staff helped to fix issues with my drywall then I would have rated the experience higher
Exactly what I expected from grandmarc. Not a bad place to live but not too great. Kind of shabby and sometimes smells bad. Servicible for 2nd year but not much else
Grandmarc is fully furnished and kept well. It’s at a great location and was a great spot for my second year. I hope other people choose to live here because it’s such a simple choice.
Y'all provide several amenities that other complexes do not have. I appreciate how nice the community is and everything that I have at my finger tips. The personal space in my apartment is nice, and the provided furniture is very helpful when moving in.
So happy I picked Grandmarc. The process of signing up with them was super easy and its at an awesome location! I've heard so many great things about them. Can't wait until move in day.
Good and close to grounds! Nice amenities like the gym, study area, furnished, and each resident has their own bedroom and bathroom as well as washer dryer in unit
This is a great apartment that has a peaceful and kind community. It has been a great place to stay for the past year and I am looking forward to the rest of my time here
Moving in, the apartment was not clean and very run-down. Overall, not a great experience with the quality of the furniture/cabinets/appliances.
THE RESIDENT EXPERIENCE WAS RELATIVELY GOOD, JUST FOR THE PRICE THAT I WAS PAYING I FEEL THAT THE PRICE WAS HIGH. THE UTILITIES AND SMALL THINGS (SHOWER CURTAIN, ETC) BREAK FAR TOO OFTEN, BUT MAINTENANCE IS RATHER PROMPT AT FIXING THESE PROBLEMS WHICH IS APPRECIATED.
The staff are friendly and helpful! Great location for going out, which also means Grandmarc is loud and can messy on the weekends, but it’s clear that the staff are doing their best to keep everything nice. There are a lot of cool amenities like the gym and lounge downstairs. There is a pool, but it’s often closed because of glass in it, and I wouldn’t ever swim in it. Overall Grandmarc was a good place to live as a second year but I wouldn’t want to live there again
The quality of the apartment wasnt great nor was the maintenance service, which we needed frequently. Other than that, i think we got what we paid for
I have really enjoyed my time living at Grandmarc. It is a great location and a lot of my friends live here as well. It is fully furnished which has been very nice.
Loved my living experience. Good location, nice facilities and staff, liked having a furnished apartment. I do however wish the amenities had been kept up with better. For instance, there were never disinfectant wipes or cleaner in the gym, which is a huge must. The printer was usually faulty as well, which made it a hassle to get things done. I also had continuous problems with our smoke alarm system throughout the year. That being said, I had a great time living here, and I thank the staff for their commitment to pleasing the residents.
The apartment is really decent, maintenance guys are so funny and nice, location is perfect, pizza parties are clutch, subletting is really really hard
the staff is extremely helpful but the building itself is very loud. It is sometimes hard to fall asleep because you can hear the music from next door loud and clear
I enjoy living in grandmarc. However, it has some electrical issues in our apartment that have continually been patch fixed instead of actually resolved.
Grandmarc has been a great place to live this year. There are always fun things going on for all of the residents, and I love having a gym right downstairs.
The loving home that is Grandmarc is truly an institution of magnificent splendor, greatly augmenting my college experience beyond my wildest of imaginations.
I love living here! I live with my best friends and the amenities are great! It's a really fun community to be a part of. It has great school spirit and a welcoming feeling.
The community is good, I haven't met a lot of new people but I already knew some people living in grandmarc. It has been a good place to live because it is convenient.
GrandMarc is a great place for people who love the social/partying aspect of college. However, it can be very loud. Additionally, the price you pay for the quality you receive isn't great.
The staff is very accommodating and always willing to help. The appliances in the apartments need to be upgraded. It can be very loud on weekend nights, but that is expected for a college-student community.
Grandmarc is a large apartment complex in a great location. Some residents can be inconsiderate, but overall I generally like living here. The apartment and amenities are nice, but the walls are thin and there is a lot of noise at night.
Grandmarc can be noisy and the hallways/stairwells get very dirty at times, especially on the weekends. But it is in a good location, the rooms are fairly sized, and the maintenance requests are fixed in a timely manner.
The office is really helpful and they always put on great events for the residents. living in grandmarc is great. the facilities are nice and clean.
There are a lot of things available as residents including the gym and I like how many events the front office holds with food in the lobby on certain days
amenities are nice and fun to live here! Gym does tend to run out of wipes which is gross and walls are thin, also is very pricy, but best you can get for cville!
I really enjoy this apartment complex and all of its amenities. Since I am from out of state the fact that furniture and a bed is included really makes this apartment complex simple and easy.
The location is great and is a convenient place for undergraduate students. The lack of cleanliness of the hallways is maybe the only complaint I would have.
Grandmarc has been fine in my experience, there's a great sense of community because many second years do live here. It is a typical college apartment, so know what you're signing up for (it can be loud and gross, especially on weekends)
Community is great due to close proximity to many friends and to the corner. Although the quality of the apartment and hall is very worn down, it is still enjoyable
Overall, I really enjoy grandmarc for its location. The furniture is not of the best quality, but it feels spacious and overall provides a solid apartment experience. I would recomend grandmarc to anyone looking for an apartment at UVA.
Really nice apartment, extremely flexible leasing options, fun and useful events, wide range of staff hours, fast service, and good facilities.
I really enjoy living at GrandMarc. The only downsides are the noise (from the train, bars, parties, etc.) and the price of rent and especially parking. The facility is nice, and the gym is a good plus.
I like the people at the office like CJ but I feel like maintanence is not at its top. The middle door is broken and its not being fixed for a long time.
pretty awesome! i love living there. its pretty chill. They always have free food and are always helpful. super nice. would definitely reccommend others to live there
I like GrandMarc! I think it’s a great community and great quality place to live. But the hallways can be messy/the elevators stop working, which can be super annoying.
It has been so much fun living in Grandmarc! My room is so spacious and the view from my balcony is great. I would highly recommend living here.
Apartment looks nice upon first impression but over time you start to notice that everything is done cheaply and quickly without care to quality.
When work orders are put in they take awhile to be addressed and when maintenance does come they don’t really fix the problem and so later on the problem reoccurs
Conveniently located and nice amenities. Gym is small and hallways are messy. Sometimes too loud. Maintenance is quick to fix problems and front desk staff is polite and friendly.
Although it could be loud at times, I have really enjoyed living here. Maintenance was very quick to help when we had a problem and the staff at the front office is very helpful.
Living at Grandmarc has been a satisfying experience so far. The location is great and it’s nice to live in a building with many if my other friends as neighbors.
I love living in grandmarc. The apartment is lovely. Parking and a washer and dryer are a huge bonus. My only complaint is the noise from other tenants, but it's college so I suppose it's to be expected. Maintenance and front desk staff are great as well. On top of all of that the location, right behind the corner, is the best!
Not as promising as expected. Nothing works properly, the walls are very thin, the maintenance is rude, and the dryers are very bad at drying clothes.
The grandmarc community has been very good so far. The people around us are helpful and kind and it was easy to settle in here. The front desk is always helpful
The building is nice. I love the parking, the security, having a laundry machine in my apartment. I love having a kitchen and being able to go out on my balcony to watch the sunset.
Good apartment and living space, excellent location on the corner makes it convenient to everything. Highly recommend living here, prompt response to maintenance requests too
It is a very nice apartment. I think the paint could be redone soon, but this place has everything I need. The maintenance responds very fast. The bathrooms need better ventilation because it gets very hot.
The lobby is always very clean and the gym is generally clean, too. Sometimes it's a little loud, but any college housing will be. Overall, a nice place to live.
Excellent apartment complex, maintenance was always fast. Didn't have many problems. Knowledgeable staff, great location right on the Corner
I love the community except I did have an issue with getting a fan replaced earlier in the year. The conflict has since been resolved. It is no longer an issue.
I like grandmarc a lot. The facilities are nice and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I feel safe here and the location is amazing for socializing and class.
Really good service and apartment conditions. The only negative point I can think of is that every maintenance you need, it will probably be charged.
Clean apartment, great proximity to restaurants, entertainment, and campus, convenient off-street parking, nice amenities, and simple billing.
Great location and it is nice that most of my friends live here. Perfect for second years! Lots of space. One improvement would be the hallways being cleaner
Grandmarc is great! The location is perfect and I love the gym. It's so nice to live behind the corner, and I like that when I walk home late at night there are always safety ambassadors out.
Good location and good effort with community programs. However, room quality is cheap and there are some maintenance issues throughout the building.
A little expensive but I like living here. The dryers are absolutely awful though i have to dry my clothes 3 sometimes 4 times. Also my shower had a huge leak in the ceiling that still hasn't been completely finished fixing up.
The main stairwell near the lobby usually is cleaned and smells good. Also love the free WSJ. Glad to have a windon overlooking the street-not too loud for me and I like the location
Nice community, I have enjoyed living there. Helpful with all questions and quick with maintenance requests. Good location. Secure parking deck with gate
Great! Love the amenities, and the staff and maintence workers! Also the theater room is a good plus as well as location! So far I have no complaints
Really nice. Large living area and plenty of room. Love being able to use the gym. Walls are pretty thin so it's tough to sleep sometimes but that seems unavoidable
Very good. Leasing professional was very helpful for my friend and I. CJ was his name. His persistence and work is the reason we have signed up
The GrandMarc at the Corner has become party central for the UVA and Charlottesville community. There are parties almost every single night which creates an incessant amount of noise, litter, drunk people, and marijuana smoke within the complex and the paper-thin walls exacerbate the noise problems. Though some members of the staff are helpful, others are completely incompetent. Definitely not worth the incredibly high price of rent as the only positive component of the experience is its location.
Grand Marc is a great place to live, I just think that the furniture could be upgraded or there could be an option to bring your own furniture and get a discount off the lease.
Two major things need to be improved upon: firstly, sometimes the ink in the lobby printer is out. This issue should be taken care of before the printing quality is affected. Also, the study room are often locked or unusable because so many chairs are stacked in them.
The staff is professional and the facility is nice. I have had issues with how maintenance left my apartment but they were resolved. overall I like it here.
Mostly good! A lot of unit appliances are older though and while they don't warrant replacing now they are really annoying to use. (Ex squeaking dishwasher and washing machine and dryer). Basically our apartment condition wasn't the newest or undamaged, but other than that no complaints.
I like living here, but elevators need to stop breaking. That has been very frustrating. The management had been very nice/helpful. But if the elevators were consistently running I would be much happier
I've really enjoyed living at Grandmarc this year. There is a very convenient living environment for students. I like that there is a sense of community
I have renewed my lease, so I obviously enjoy living here. The rooms are big and the furniture is decent. I will say it is far more expensive than most places, but the price reflects the space in my two bedroom apartment.
great!i love living in Grandmarc and i am considering about renewing. The apartments are nice and the amentities are awesome. I would recommand to others!
You guys have a good service, but noise level can he high. Also, it is unfortunate when maintenance workers barge in. It's rude and sometimes they leave a mess.
I think Grandmarc is doing really well to maintain the overall complex. I do wish that amenities services like pool cleaning could start later in the day.

I appreciate how often your office is open! And how easy it is to get a new key. Maintenance is also done very quickly after a request is submitted.
I enjoy living here a lot, great employees, always available to help with anything you need. Grandmarc does a good job of making the premises clean and in good shape
Really seems clean so far. Previous inhabitants told me to expect trash in the hallways but I havent seen it. Main office members have been very helpful to me when the work order form was running slow.
It's been a great experience thus far with the staff and living experience. I haven't ran into much issues at all but if I did the staff was pretty quick about dealing with it
So far living at GrandMarc has been a good experience. The apartment that we moved in to was in pretty good shape. We don't hear too much noise from our location in the building. The extra amenities are very nice as well, especially the gym.
So far great!! I was locked out at midnight on a Friday night and all of my roommates were away for the weekend. Someone was on call to come let me in!!
So far, I have had nothing short of a positive experience at Grandmarc. Although the noise and messiness of the space may at times be overwhelming, Grandmarc does it's best to handle it professionally
Grandmarc is a great place to live! The units are nice. They have nice furniture and comfortable beds. The location is great as well. Grandmarc is so close to the corner!
Grandmarc is great, the only problem is the occasional miscommunication when maintenance requests are put in. Sometimes maintenance people take weeks to come fix a problem and sometimes someone fixes something and someone else comes to fix it a week later. Also, I had a maintenance problem that the person couldn't fix.
Pretty good. Enjoying everything so far. Just wish others would take care of the area (grassy areas and pool for example). Some people can be inconsiderate especially around the pool area.
Not very fast with maintanence repairs, but once there got it fixed in one visit. Then another person came the next day to make sure it was all ok
Grandmarc rep really helped place me in the apartment that was best for me. Did the random roommate match system and have had a great time so far with my roomie. Problems stem mainly from trash everywhere and broken ice chip maker.
Our apartment is in good condition. Although our maintenance requests were fulfilled slowly, they were handled well. I would like to see a recycling program for the building.
GrandMarc is one of the cleaned places I've lived. The staff are always so nice and accommodating. Its close proximity to the Corner, features included in the rent, and friendly community make it the perfect place to live at UVA!
Building has been relatively clean which is nice. Noise level not too loud. Front desk has been courteous and helpful. Convenient being near the corner and all the shops and restaurants that the corner offers.
I really enjoy the living experience at GrandMarc. It is fun, safe, and easy. I dont have many complaints except for that the elevator is falling apart.
Friendly service, great apartments, and the common areas are always super clean. Move in day was pretty hectic though, and I think it would have been better to spread move in over more days/times.
I love the grandmarc environment and our apartment is super beautiful/functional. We were having some trouble with our microwave and maintenance people came to fix it very soon after we submitted a work order.
Love my apartment, would like the stairwells to be a little cleaner but if that's the worst of my issues than we're fine. Heard some pretty bad things about moving out at the end of the year/absurd cleaning charges, hopefully that's not true.
Grandmarc has honestly made my second year at UVA better than I could possibly imagine. I was able to live steps away from so many of my friends which eased the transition away from dorm style living.
Expensive but comfortable and fun! Can be noisy at night, probably not ideal for non-students or even grad students. Overall, I was pretty satisfied with the quality for the location and price.
Doing well! I feel safe and secure in my apartment and enjoy the availability of parking, since it's so hard to find in Charlottesville. I've enjoyed my stay.
I think grandmarc has made living very easy and is in a great location. A few things that I wish I could change are:
-No new residents assigned to us by grandmarc for the summer (was not notified when I signed the lease)
-Closer trash disposal
The apartment was nice. Spacious patio, clean enough when we moved in. However, the appliances were low quality. We had a leaking toilet for a month or so before they came to fix it and once they did it didnt end up solving the problem. The computer system would glitch and give you undeserved late fees for rent and other things. They over priced for repairs.
Furniture is cheap, something always needs fixing. Hoping I get security deposit back
But maintenance does come really quickly
The rent was always expensive but increased even more for this year. Tried to lease current apartment & they couldn't even give me same rate even though I've paid rent here for months!
Overall, living at GrandMarc has been a good experience. The only problem I have found so far is noise. People are very inconsiderate and make noise at odd hours of the day and night.
It's a bit loud, but having this many college students around its not the fault of the facility. Location is awesome, staff is helpful and friendly, I've very much enjoyed living here!
This is my second year living at Grandmarc and I cannot ask for a better place to call my home. My bedroom and closet are huge and can fit all my stuff. The staff is always very responsive to my needs and work above and beyond my expectations. I will also be living here next year since it is very close to classes.
Very Quick on repairs. Called about a broken fan that was having an issue with the light. Filled out a form and grandmarc came the next day to fix it.
It's pretty nice, but can get louder due to other residents or fire alarms. The furniture it comes with is nice. The appliances are fairly new too.
The administration is slow moving and a lot of issues with the apartment tbat I had to fill out on my room condition report. It also took over a week to get a new mail key and my screen door fell off the hinges
This place is so fun. I love living here. I've befriended a bunch of people on my hall, two of whom I hang out with almost every day. I've really enjoyed my experience here.
Grandmarc is very good location to live in. The main thing is just following through with making sure that maintenance requests are completed.
GrandMarc has been a decent living experience. Overall, the facility is pretty nice, but it isn't taken care of by the residents. GrandMarc is essentially always loud, and you can count on having some of the worst neighbors. However, it is college so if you are expecting a quiet living experience you have come to the wrong place.
I believe that Grandmarc truly wants to provide a positive experience for its residents. However, the cleanliness level is subpar at best, and messes/spills in the community areas, such as hallways and staircases, remain for weeks at a time before they are cleaned up. Even with extremely high priority spills, like puke, I find it still present for a minimum of two weeks. This makes it impossible to have a satisfactory experience with Grandmarc.
GrandMarc has a great location, only a couple of minute walk from the corner. However, the apartment is very loud and flooded with trash after the weekends.
Great amenities, spacious closets, perfect location. The pool and patio are fun with friends, the workout room is well-equipped and convinient.
You are doing okay. Sadly customer service wasn't ideal at first, but since the first few mishaps, things have improved significantly. Great location!
Good! Maintenance requests get done quickly and it is not extremely noisy where I live. It's a great location on the Corner, making walks to class quick
My only real issue with Grandmarc is the noise. You can clearly hear the music from Biltmore and Crozet almost every night until 2am, and the train is a constant distraction too. However, I understand location is not really an issue that can be solved. On the other hand, I've had great experiences with the staff and repairmen.
A/C has not been working for a month and we've been unable to speak to a representative as anyone we've been able to talk to has said they can't help us, we've been overcharged on electricity for now two straight months and have had no help on that front either
Very spacious, nice bathrooms. The employees are very helpful and communicate things well and in a timely manner. Sometime the stairwells are dirty, but that's college kids.
I like grandmarc a lot, but there are definitely some issues. We've had some broken things and it's a little loud, but it's got some nice services and a great location.
I am very happy I chose to live at GrandMarc this year. The amenities that are included are just not an option anywhere else. I really enjoy the fact everything is included in the rent (except elcectricity) and the apartments come furnished. My only complaint is that the dryer isn't very good at drying large loads; it takes a couple cycles to dry the.
I absolutely love grandmarc! I never really use the pool, but the fitness center is so convenient! Having the parking garage is also a great bonus!
Grandmarc is awesome. Liz, the property manager, is so helpful and always willing to answer my questions. As a first year, I was so intimidated by the whole idea of finding housing and signing a lease myself but Liz and Grandmarc made it easy! Now I'm a second year and I'm so glad I decided to live here!
You've been doing ok. There have been some persistent maintenance problems with outside doors not working with our keys, which is incredibly frustrating.
GrandMarc is awesome. Kimberly, CJ, Shawn, Neal, and the CA staff do an awesome job keeping the place organized and making sure we have fun.
I really like living here! Sometimes it gets a little loud, but since I got earplugs it's been fine. I also don't like how disrespectful people can be with throwing stuff at the pool area from balconys.
Amenities are nice, location is great, and each apartment is relatively clean and new. I love living on the corner which is just a few steps away from class and great restaurants and shopping.
Great! The customer service is great, the employees at the leasing office are very welcoming and helpful. Though I wish you all replied to emails and phone calls better.
The maintenance is a little slow (i.e. fixing the key hole in the front door), but I love living here with so many second years. It's a great apartment and really fun.
Grandmarc is just okay - the wait time for maintenance is too long and the facility is kind of shabby. There is a patch in the wall on the fifth floor that hasn't been painted over since the first week of school... There are always things wrong, things missing, things broken, etc. There is typically a lot of trash around the facility that doesn't get cleaned up for weeks at a time and I typically prefer to keep my family out of my apartment because I don't want them to know they pay so much money for the facility to be so gross.
We are so thankful to have you here with us at GrandMarc at the Corner. And just to show you how much, we're inviting you to our new resident rewards program - Community Rewards.
This is just one more way for us to say thank you for being a part of the family here at GrandMarc at the Corner, and the next 20 people that join have a pretty cool gift waiting for them!
This is my second year living at GrandMarc and definitely not my last. GrandMarc at the corner has great spacious floor plans, huge closets. Office staff is always there to help!
Living at Grandmarc last year and then again this year has been a pretty good experience. The staff is so kind and they're always willing to answer questions
The place is really nice, it's furnished. It gets pretty loud sometimes, and not b/c of other residents! Workers get real loud (trash cans in the garage!!) which is not fun. Overall pretty nice place though.
Apartment itself is nice but I pay way too much to worry about stepping in puke and broken glass in the hallways. Also, the door leading in to the left side of the building has been broken for a week and I have to walk all the way around. Normally these things are not huge problems, but when I'm paying the price of a "luxury" apartment, I want things to work and I want things clean.
Great living space, plenty of room, but maintenance is slow. Very convenient that you can pay rent online and the jets are plastic so no need for a locksmith when you get locked out.
Grandmarc is great and very close to the Corner which is even better. the front desk is always available and is extremely helpful with any issues that occur.
Super convenient with good size rooms and nice amenities. The only major downside is that common areas particularly stairwells are not well kept.
Most of the amenities are functional and nice-to-have, but some things (dishwasher, dryer) could use an upgrade. Just seems like a lot of use has worn on them a bit. Most of the residents here are pretty bad tenants (i.e, trash everywhere and broken lights and elevators), so good looks in dealing with them.
The location is really convenient and having my own room is really nice. The kitchen is a lot bigger than the one I had last year, but the floor could've been cleaned better.
I have had s great experience living at Grandmarc on the Corner. It is in a prime location and the apartments are nice. I enjoy the window in my room and having my own bathroom.
