I don't know, I haven't moved in yet. It looks like a good place to live, but I'm just trying to reach my one hundred and forty character limit.
Seems to be nice. The roommate selection process was very smooth and worked out how it should have. I cannot wait to move in. Looking forward to it.
The community is a great one to live in, Its clean and maintained well. Its only my first year living here and I already want to come back. The apartments are a good size for an individual just starting to become independent
Well sinve I haven't live here, I can’t really tell the good or bad...but I do received lots of kind email from Pointe. And my friends says it’s a nice place. I wish so.
The staff is very courteous, and helpful. The apartments are clean and well maintained. I would recommend the Pointe to anyone looking for housing at State College.
It has everything I need here and everyone is so friendly, I wouldn’t picture myself living anywhere else! It is the perfect distance from campus.
The pointe has been very timely in responding to any questions I've had and I cant wait to get moved in. I've only heard good things about the apartments
The Pointe facility is very nice and people are friendly, however the leasing process has had numerous bits of information that were not completely communicated to us and that were not less than pleasing. All in all becoming a resident has been fairly straight forward.
Good quality for a good price. I love having my own bathroom. I also love how the pointe organizes community activities so you can get to know other people who live there.
It was a great time filled with a fun experience that opened me up to new friends in an environment that gave me a fun filled year up at State College
These apartments seem very nice. I don’t move in until the end of August but I am excited. The reasons I chose the pointe to live include having my own bedroom and bathroom and the fact that it allows pets.
I did not have a good experience living here at all. The actual staff, not the CAs, are so rude and annoying. I've been charge for stupid things that were out of my control. I put in service request only to get ignored most of the time. Its also VERY, VERY, VERY, overpriced for complete TRASH. I will not recommend this complex to anyone.
The pointe is a great place to live. It is always very clean and if you need anything fixed in your apartment ( appliances, light bulb changes) they usually do it in one business day!
Very good experience here, nice people, good atmosphere. Clean apartment and the rooms are furnished very well. The living area is also extremely nice as well and love living here
It was nice, the apartments and rooms were nice. It was too far away from campus and was a little too expensive, but it wa still very nice. More events needed.
The staff are super helpful when I have any questions. They are very understanding that their residents are in college as well. I enjoy the pool area and the living situations. (Own room/bath)
i live here 3 years in a row. I love the place. People are super caring. The staff are fun. There are diversity in the neighborhood. I also play pokemon go and there are a lot of pokemons here
Great staff who are very helpful but the pointless $299 fee every year is kind of annoying. I have had a great experience and like living here.
I don’t currently live there yet, but I have only heard wonderful things about it. I had a few friends who lived there and I always loved to visit. The places are super spacious.
This property is beautiful, filled with amenities, and perfect for college. I especially love the 1:1 bed bath ratio which is nice for added privacy.
The maintenance request system never works. When it does, requests can take weeks to be filled. Our apartment has flooded 3 times and we've had mold twice. Requests are not filled in a timely manner.
It’s great! The people who work here are so helpful! Being a new resident I thought would be hard, but the staff has made it so easy to transition from Berks to University Park!
I enjoy the pointe very much! However somethings I find to be a bit crazy. Management does not seem to care much and they do not take responsibility for anything. The apartments can be nice. It all depends.
Not living here during the summer so 9-month leases would be amazing, please. However, your staff is always quick to send someone to fix something with is great.
Great experience! I think it is a wise way to use the amazon! This is my first time join this community and it really works! May others like it !
I love living here! I lived at a different complex during my junior year and HATED it! Moving here was so nice; getting my own bedroom and bathroom, spacious common area and nice kitchen! Not to mention all the amenities on the property! The only problem is that my room wasn't very clean when I moved in, but the staff was quick and very helpful in resolving this issue!
Living at the pointe has been one of my best decisions at Penn State! Having my own room and bathroom with easy bus transportation to campus has made the past 3 years at PSU a breeze.
The Pointe is a great community to be apart of. The space is great, the management is ver knowledgeable and willing to help. The rooms are great and yeah it’s all around great.
It is a good and beautiful place. We can use the gym, study room, computer room, basketball room and swimming pool. I love pointe, like my second home.
Apartment is perfect for what I need and want. Quiet community with all amenities I need. Free parking is a bonus. Love having the pool especially.
Located away from the downtown atmosphere, however good location and not too far from campus. Friendly staff and good amenities, as well as pet friendly.
Over pretty solid apartments. The stuff that comes with the apartments is usable but not the in the best condition all the time. I have found the internet to be shotty.
I love living at The Pointe! The amenities are top notch, as well as the service! I love having my own bedroom and bathroom, and a common area to share with my roommates!
Great apartment for the price definitely good value. However not the cleanest roommates and not the best matching system. Overall pretty good experience
I love The Pointe. I have been living there for a year now. It’s a great place for students, very quiet, wifi and parking are included. I would definitely recommend.
Overall very nice but could improve on communication a bit. Most of the emails we get are ads about things that nobody cares about so more direct communication and less nonsense would be nice
Its nice and clean here and i enjoy the staff who works here because they are very helpful to me. The apartment here is nice and clean. Everything is new and the bathrooms here are nice and tidy. So far i would recommend this place to anyone looking to live in a clean and nice environment. The bus is a bit far but otherwise everything is a nice distance.
I have yet to live at the pointe, however I am very excited to take advantage of all the amenities the property. I can't wait to live there this fall!
The apartments are well kept and clean. The pointe is very close to everything i need and to campus. The pool area is very nice and kept very clean.
Very nice place in all. The staff is very friendly and helpful at times but they do their best to get you questions answered. The only really problem is maintenance, sometimes they get your request and other times you're not sure. But other than that the amount of parking, the bus routes and the placement of the complex are really nice!
Terrible. The key cards always deactivate and has inconvenienced me many times. During the fall and spring semester we should of been told which days there was going to be construction on Atherton and the times because it has in-convinced many many people and made many of us late. The summer CATA bus schedule is inadequate, I have work at 7 AM and there is no bus to get me to campus on time, forcing me to spend money to get to work. When the yoga room was redone it was not cleaned properly afterwards so there was a lot of particles left over and dust in the air that was bad for us to be breathing in. There's a pool table and pool balls in the club house but no pool sticks. I don't know why the pool area has been closed off since all the snow and ice is gone. I can't use the out door furniture to sit outside on a nice day which is frustrating. Compared to other complexes, the expresso machine doesn't taste good its not quality and I was surprised to see there are no cups to use for it and disappointed in the "free printing" but you need your own paper. I was also disappointed to see that you can't connect to aux in the gym like many other places allow you to do.
Overall nice amenities, however the rooms were alittle cramped and applianced were alittle dated. Would of been nice to have the pool opened earlier in the year.
I have enjoyed my experience so far. The neighborhood and area are nice, the staff and management are responsive, and really decent amenities.
I really like the pointe because it is clean and quiet. The bus stop is also convinient and the ammenities are good. I also like the speed of the internet.
Pretty nice place in terms of living. It's nice to have your own bathroom and room, and the fact that it comes furnished is ideal. Fairly close to campus, so that's nice as well.
Maintenance is okay and It’s hard to get in contact with someone that can take care of your leasing issues. The property is nice it could be held up better.
I had a great experience at The Pointe. I thought that the pool area was always clean and taken care of which is something that isn't really done at other residential local locations.
I have lived here for one year now... and I love it. They have a great sense of community and are always willing to help should you need it. I highly recommend coming to check out this family-like environment!
The Pointe is a great place to live. Lived there for two years and enjoyed all of it. It’s great to have your own room and bathroom and is fairly priced for all the amenities that come with it.
This place was okay in general. It could be alot better if it was more clean. There can be alot of little spiders in like every room, but other then that its bad.
The apartment itself is great, and the amenities are wonderful, but the community is lacking. There are extremely inconsiderate residents here and the staff seem to not care most of the time.
I love the circumstance here. The view is so good！！the apartment is big enough. We may have our own bedroom and own bathroom. The staffs here are nice.
Alodia was a medieval Nubian kingdom in what is now central and southern Sudan. Its capital was Soba, near modern-day Khartoum at the confluence of the Blue and White Nile rivers. In 580 it became a part of the Christian world, following the other two Nubian kingdoms, Nobadia and Makuria. Alodia reached its peak during the 9th–12th centuries, when it exceeded its northern neighbor and close ally, Makuria, in size, military power and economic prosperity. A large, multicultural state, Alodia was ruled by a powerful king and provincial governors appointed by him. Soba was a prosperous town and trading hub, and literacy in Nubian and Greek flourished. Goods arrived from Makuria, the Middle East, western Africa, India and even China. Alodia began a slow decline in the 12th century, possibly because of invasions from the south,
Maintenance requests have made my experience worse. Sometimes when I submit them, they take days to finally be fulfilled. Several things have needed to be repaired in my apartment this year.
I love it here I love the food days and I love the staff they are very attentive and willing to solve any issues that may come up in the apartment
I like the environment in the Pointe because I can walk around after dinner. Near to the bus station and the office staff are really helpful.
It’s a good apartment complex, although it is a decent ways away from downtown. The apartments are nice with a lot of space, and you’re right next to Walmart and other food places.
Great rooms, shared spaces, and community! A little far from campus and really wish they offered something other than 1-year leases. The management could be a little nicer as well.
The Pointe is a really nice place to stay. The pool is my favorite part. It is very close to a ton of places, like Wegmans and Target. The rooms are very cozy.
the community is always very well kept and clean, I love the different colored buildings and all the amenities that are available. The apartments are mostly well made, however my apartment was very dirty before I moved in so they should be cleaned better for new residents.
The pointe is a great location to live at. It is close to campus and they offer a bus pass for several local routes. The gym is great and so is the clubhouse. And management is great about contacting residents about inspections and construction updates! 10/10 would recommend.
Great Place to live, a good amount of distance from campus to feel connected to the great culture! Football games are great and the people around campus are even better!
The apartments a nice and the overall complex is nice.parking is a little tight at my building bc there are 4 that all feed to the same lot.
Think the overall experience has been great. The only thing that was annoying were the painters during the first semester. I feel like the staff is great and very helpful.
It’s mostly clean, sometimes maintenance requests take a long time to fulfill but generally it’s a nice place to live. The internet is usually pretty fast but recently it’s been slow.
The apartment has been great the past few months, ive had no issues paying rent or putting in requests. Planning to stay here through the remainder of college
I moved in here because the previous place I was at was bad. I'm so much more happier here. Great facilities and management is good and very welcoming.
Nice, friendly, and quite place to live. Great for a university student since it had different facilities in it and a great location with markets near it.
The apartments are very spacious and provide a great quiet place to live in. When we had an issue at the apartment maintenance came within a few days of the request!
I enjoy it there! I renewed my lease. But I feel like the management is poor they do not care about the residence. The snow care is awful. They are all about the money
The Pointe is a really nice place to live. They also provide a lot of different services. Overall, I am looking forward to living there with my friends.
Customer service will be very patient to answer questions, the speed of reply is also very timely. Although I have not checked in yet, the last time I went to see the room type, I felt that the environment and the staff's attitude were quite good. And the price is not more expensive than other places, the most important is the room is also very warm and comfortable.
Haven’t moved in yet but I’m excited to move in. The staff seems wonderful. The amenities are what sold me, they look amazing. And the design and look of the apartments are really beautiful
Clean and quiet apartment complex with a pool, gym, and bus stop. Close to shops and restaurants, but only a short drive away from downtown State College!
Love the atmosphere here at the pointe and all the amenities that are here. The staff is very generous and helpful. Its nice to have your own bathroom.
It’s been great living here! The staff is kind and usually on top of stuff. I feel safe and comfortable. My room needs new carpets and there’s a lot of mold but hey nothing perfect
There is really friendly staff always willing to help. I love all the amenities and I recommend the pointe to all my friends. Maintenance is excellent. Literally no complaints!
Location is great and the apartments are nice. Personal bathrooms and washer/dryer at your convenience. Staff is very nice. The pool is an awesome plus!
I still think the Pointe is the best. Better than the bryn and tremont. I experienced some difficulties with my bathroom and the maintenance comes right away to fix it. That is great.
Great living experience. Love the pointe love everything love my roommate. CATABUS come very often but I will not be living here next year. Bye
The apartments are nice and I like having my own room and bathroom, but the walls are very thin so it is easy to hear the people above us. As a whole, I am very pleased with the staff because of how they try to engage everyone and constantly update us with what is going on at The Pointe.
I love The Pointe Apartments. I like the fact that give out free food and organize a lot of activities. The only thing I don’t like is that there’s no one bedroom apartments
I love having my own room and bathroom. The location is okay but the room inspections are such an invasion of privacy. So that is why I will NOT renew my lease here or tell anybody I know to live here.
Kind staff, awesome amenities, great living environment, quick responses for any requests, interactive living environment, overall very comfortable place to reside.
The Pointe is the only student living place I’ve lived in postgrad and I’m glad I did. I give insight to them while hey still manage to teach me things daily. I approve
Love it here! Lots of activities and events on throughout the semesters. The gym, sauna and pool are great ways to make and spend time with friends.
It’s a bit noisy. Upstairs is always stomping. However, neighborhood is great. Seemingly safe. Maintanence is fast and does as needed. It’s pretty nice and convenient.
Awesome place to live awesome place to stay. Got to live near my friends and hang with them. Bus trips isn’t too bad. Room is alright, can’t complain either.
I couldn't ask for a better apartment. My only issue with the place is that my upstairs neighbors are very loud, but other than that, this place rules.
The apartment complex is really clean and looks really nice. However there sometimes isn’t enough parking. Love having my own room and bathroom, and an in unit washer and dryer. The location is great because of stores but it isn’t great for going out at night.
I haven’t really lived here yet, but you know, I’m trying to collect these points so I can get an amazon gift card. It’s one peri that I like about the pointe so far :)
The location is nice as well as the price. The insulation isn't very good though so the air conditioning or heat always has to be running to cool or heat the apartment which can really increase the utilities bill. There are also things such as our stovetop which is curved which makes it difficult to cook certain foods. My sink also leaks.
The Pointe is awesome!! A must stay if you're looking for the best possible place around! Great amenities, quiet community, and beautiful apartments.
I very much love this community. It has all the amenities that i need and it is very clean and quiet. The free food is also very well and convenient
The neighbors are disgusting and loud they leave trash in the hallway and have no regard for others. The steps are still broken in the front of the fifth building.
Overall, I like living at the pointe. Its spacious and quiet, but there could be some improvements. maintenance is not the quickest to come fix things, and sometimes communication between staff is not great. I had to email my emotional support dog paperwork about 3 times until everyone who needed to be aware of it was aware. They charged me pet fees because the correct people were not aware of what was going on.
I have a great experience being a resident of The Pointe. My favorite feature was the pool. I thought the staff was super helpful with transferring my lease to a new tenant which can normally be a very stressful process.
I love the food and the nachos. The staff is very helpful and the maintenance is very timely. I wish there was a community garden though! Thanks
Love having own bed/bath, and w/d in unit. Good condition, around a lot of good restaurants and stores.. bus system not great at accommodating # of students and not great timing
The pointe is a great place for college kids the only problem is the distance but the bus accomadates that. Its farily cheap and the staff is nice the room inspections are kinda of excessive though.
Love the amenities, only complaint is just the location not being closer to campus but it’s super convenient being close to Walmart and other shops.
Love having my own bedroom/bathroom. Room was a little dirty when I moved in but management handled it very well. I love using the pool when it’s open and the clubhouse gym is perfect for me!
Not bad a little over priced. The amenities are nice when the printer is working but I like the free hot cocoa and coffee. The rooms are nice also
Great location, is near all of the restaurants and isn't too far from campus, pricing is a little expensive for what you get especially considering you live with 3 other people, but the rooms and maintenance are pretty nice, living here for 4 semesters
I enjoy living here. There are plenty of amenities for the price, and the location is great. The apartment was a little dirty when we moved in, but it wasn't much trouble to clean.
Love how clean and well-kept the Pointe is. However, my maintenance problems have taken months at times to be answered. Overall, I have loved my experience living here and would recommend the Pointe.
It was a great experience. I enjoyed the environment. Only thing I didn’t like was the CATA bus. It was always late or it would pass me by even when I was running to the stop.
The Pointe is a decent place to live for the price. Compared to other off campus apartments for students, it has great amenities, such as free parking, a washer, dryer, dishwasher, pool, clubhouse, and events to participate in. However, it was very dirty when we first moved in, they seem to always be doing paint touch ups, and it is very moist inside.
Staff are friendly and helpful. When needed maintenance, I received the proper help I needed. However, the apartment needs a little updating.
The Pointe is okay. It’s expensive and far away from campus for the price. The interior of my apartment is very run down. They say they inspect them each summer but I don’t believe that. I chose The Pointe because I get my own bedroom and bathroom.
The pointe apartments has been a great experience for me. I enjoy the layout of the apartments a lot especially having my own bathroom. The staff and maintenance are very helpful.
It's pretty nice here other than the distance from campus. The VE is probably the greatest bus of the ones That go to off campus housing in the area
I have been in a few units at the Pointe and while there have been some issues (to be expected), my overall experience has been good. They offer things that I really look for, e.g. personal bed/bath and W/D in unit.
Hearing problems. Management unable to help. Few people told me one thing and I talk to manager and they said they won’t help me out finding a roommate. Before signing the lease, the management said they would help but when I need it they backed out.
A good spot to be while not being too far from campus. Being close to a supermarket like walmart is enough of an incentive for me! Make use of the bus
the pointe is phenomenal. Great pool area and club house very clean and nice community. Not too far from campus as well i can’t wait to live here again
Overall, the living quality at the pointe is good. The house are nearly the same us the sample house they show us in the clubhouse. The gym and study room are very nice.
Overall a decent apartment for the price. It is in walking distance of Walmart, Trader Joe’s, and a few restaurants. Lots of stores and restaurants on the V line as well
Office staff is friendly and informative, but the apartments are not well furnished. Sink was still dirty and I had to clean it myself. Smoke detector was low battery the other day and went off for 20 min at 1am.
I have lived at the Pointe for two years now and my experience has been great! I truly enjoy the amenities provided along with the great community events.
Overall great community, and great amenities. Higher quality apartments then what you will find downtown, but for the downside of being far away from campus. Biggest issue would be the amount that Pointe Employees come into your apartment, as I’ve already woken up to two employees in my bedroom while I’m sleeping in my underwear at 9am.
It’s a nice setup, not a huge fan of renting an individual room as opposed to splitting the cost of a single apartment, but it’s nice overall.
I love having my own room and my own bathroom. I also like that I can bring a pet if I want to and can use the pool/gym/courts/sauna whenever I want.
I love many things about the pointe. Having my own room and bathroom is my favorite followed by having a bacony to relax. I also enjoy being able to go to the pool and the office for free snacks.
I've had a good experience so far. Whenever I needed something fixed, you guys were always so quick to respond and fulfil my request. I hope next semester is good too.
Location is not prime, but it's not to bad if you have a car. They say the busses run till 2am but not the V, so it takes you forever to get home if you go out and usually end up taking a 13$ Uber.
The community is very nice and I enjoy the gym specifically a lot. I also like how fast maintenence responds to my requests. However when I moved in it was extremely dirty and I did have a bad experience with the office where I feel I had to unfairly pay an extra three hundred dollars.
Here at The Pointe, I love my apartment. I like that I have the privacy of my own bathroom, room and have features like the swimming pool and gym as well as a computer lab
Leasing staff seems to be nice, haven’t had anything faulty in our apartment besides the fact that it was filthy when we moved in and they left us with a broken sofa chair. haven’t had any real issues with maintenance. hard to find parking near our building
Nice quiet most of the time if you don’t like the hustle and bustle of downtown. Close to stores but a little far from campus. Really good place to have a pet as well.
It’s a very nice place to live! Location could just be better. The apartments are kept up very well and Maintenence responds to any requests quickly.
It’s very nice living here, place is spacious, great to have own bathroom, the workers are helpful. Parking is easy but can be hard for visitors to find a spot.
I honestly have very much enjoyed my experience at the pointe and have actually recommended it to others who are planning to go to state college
Great place to live, nice apartments, everyone is friendly. The amenities are amazing and there is always something to do around the complex.
The bus service is great and timely. I love living somewhere quiet and close to the resources of downtown like the WalMart makes grocery shopping sooo easy.
Perfect for 4 people if you don’t mind living a bit farther from campus. Good price for your own room, bathroom, and you get a laundry unit. Each apartment has a balcony or porch so it has a lot of space. Only problem is the distance from campus compared to downtown.
This is a quality place to live for a college student. It might be a little off campus but they provide transportation and the rent is cheap.
Maintenance is really sad...apartments are very dirty upon moving in. I have a huge hole in my wall that I put in a work order for and no one has come to fix it, its been 3 months... I like the location and layout of apartments.
The Pointe has very spacious rooms, your own bathroom, and a nice living room and kitchen. The staff there are very easy to deal with and maintenance requests are answered immediately.
I love the pointe! They were super nice about letting me do a 5 month lease next semester and you get so much for the price. I have my own room and bathroom which is rare.
Great place to live, management is quick and does a good job. Clubhouse is always warm and friendly, gym is always clean. Vomputer room very useful
The best environment to live in. It is great！！I love the
apartment. It is big enough to spend time with friends and roommates. The gym is good.
I think the pointe is a really good place to live due to its location and services. The whole community is really friendly and the houses are pretty good.
I really enjoy having my own bedroom and bathroom and made the choice to renew my lease for the next year! I use the clubhouse multiple times a week and love my free coffee.
Expensive but worth it considering the price. Only real problem is that living in apartment twenty forces you to walk for five minutes to reach bus.
The Pointe responds to issues in a timely manner, and provides a living environment similar to that of a hotel. I can always expect to get home and be met with luxury and sometimes nachos.
The only con is my unit is quite far from bus stop. Everything else is good. The maintenance is very quick, usually within a day. Sound proof between rooms is great but between floor is quite poor.
Since living at the Pointe, I have had a great experience. I really like having my own space and kitchen. The ability to escape from campus is also a great bonus.
The amenities here at The Pointe and very clean and easy to enjoy. Maintenance requests get completed fairly quickly. Most of the residents are pretty friendly.
Really nice apartments, great staff, maintenance is quick to fix issues, nice location (near tons of shopping places, restaurants, and only a few miles away from campus), and tons of amenities!
I have had zero issues with anything at the Pointe and have found Wendy and all of the resident assistants extremely accommodating and friendly. After having had many issues with the Bryn nextdoor, and friends with similar issues at the Tremont nextdoor, I was very wary about living here. But every question or concern I have had has been addressed almost immediately. Most importantly, there have been no issues with rent. They are very upfront about what you need to pay, and as long as you pay it, there are no issues. Everyone at the Pointe was extremely helpful in the renewal process when I had several questions. The complex is well-kept and goes out of its way to provide community experiences to residents.
I love it here. I love the separate bathrooms that everyone gets and the fact you have own laundry so you don’t have to go out to do it. It’s great here.
Friendly staff and good at keeping residents in the loop. Although, the constant renovations to the buildings can be loud and inconvenient. I wish they did that over breaks.
Really nice place to live. Apartments are great with your own bedroom and bathroom for a good rate. Close to campus and a bus pass is provided with the service fee which is really convenient.
Apartments are good. Furniture is dated. Walk to bus stop could be more convienent. I enjoy the activity days such as taco Tuesday or popcorn on mondays.
I am definitely glad I chose to live at The Pointe for my first off-campus experience! The community is nice to live in. This location is not too far from campus at all.
Enjoy the community and amenities offered at the pointe. Unlike the downtown area it is never too loud or rowdy. People are kind and respectful when I encounter them at the gym and pool.
The pointe is a great apartment complex that is in a convenient location close to stores, restaurants and campus. The bus system works well and is easy access to campus!
Living in the Pointe has been amazing! Living in an apartment with your own bedroom and bathroom is nice and being provided a bus pass is even better. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. I would recommend the Pointe to anyone.
The Pointe is in a great location, with some great restaurants and shops nearby. The staff is very nice and the clubhouse is awesome. Roomwise, the windows are a little drafty but the apartments are very cozy.
My experience at The Pointe was nothing less than fantastic. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a new apartment. This was a amazing place!
I love how friendly the staff is here and my roommate placement has turned out great! Lots of amenities, but I wish the maintenance was better.
Though living at the Pointe isn't within walking distance of campus for class in the morning, the quality of rooms, bathrooms, and overall living standards paired with the convenient shopping location exceeds the need to be close to campus.
I love living here. Staff is super friendly and very understandable. 10/10! I like having my own room and bathroom.
The computer lab is a great place to study and there is always free printing.
It is a very good apartment complex. They have very attentive staff and they care about all of your needs. They also offer good food and I like that.
I like everything so far I just with they would fix the steps because I don't want to trip and fall every time I go to leave the apartment. Other than that it's just stuff that was already here when we moved in, but everything is pretty much okay
Very nice place to live. Safe community with lots of amenities and offerings to their residents. I really enjoy having my own bedroom and bathroom, and the WiFi so far has been great.
The rooms are very satisfactory and there are no problems with it. The o ly reason there aren't five stars is that my upstairs neighbors are extremely loud and were very rude when confronted about it.
I'm loving the community so far, my only issue has been that it seems like all of the appliances are barely holding together and something else breaks like every week.
The Pointe is a nice complex in state college. The work on the place is mediocre, but staff and strong amenities do it well. Overall a fine place to reside.
Beautiful setting and friendly roommates! My roommates and I do enjoy living together and we cook together and have dinner together. Also, we share the food taken from home. However, the fire alarm makes me really unhappy because I don't know why when I was showering one day, it rang!!! It's horrible!!!!!
Love the Pointe! Great community and wonderful living. The ammentities are awesome, pool when it’s warm, indoor basketball court, gym, sauna, they have it all!
Yeah apartment was pretty dirty when I moved in but it has been a pretty good experience so far. I like the pool and complimentary give aways!
I really enjoy this place because of how spacious it is. The only thing I didn’t like was how dirty it was before we got here and all the noise from workers painting.
Good place for a good price. Close to campus and the buses come often. Renovated the gym and it got a lot better. From what I here definitely a lot better than other places around here.
Really nice place and good community. The kitchen has nice appliances, which was a big plus for me. The only problem I have had so far was I had to clean it before I moved in, but other than that it is a really nice place to live.
This is a great place to live. A lot of people live here and they are all very friendly. The staff is very friendly as well and they will help you with any issues you have
I love how convenient the point is located to shopping and transportation to downtown. Also I have had fast responses to my work order requests and the maintenance personnel have been very thorough and have left notes about what was done when they came in while we were out.
The community itself is amazing, the staff and maintenance is really helpful and is always there when we need them. The quality of the apartments isn’t the best but they are good enough for what a college student needs.
So far, Living at the Pointe has been super comfortable, I never regret coming here, the only problem I had personally was the small toilet but otherwise, living here is awesome! :)
Outside of being a little off campus, The Pointe is wonderful. More space than i thought i'd have The amenities (Pool, Gym, Sauna) make living here that much better.
So far everything has been great. The management is really nice and helpful. They answer all my questions whenever I need to know something important.
overall good, a few lighting/furniture problems when first moving in. the pool/clubhouse area is great. I like getting tea/hot chocolate whenever I want a warm drink and going to the gym is very convenient
Big apartment with your own room and bathroom, free parking, pool, free printing and a free bus pass. Buses don’t run very late so it is frustrating
Very nice overall. Everything is good so far. Haven’t had any problems getting from here too campus. Enjoy the pool and the fitness center. The study room is also very helpful.
It’s great. The people are nice, the apartments are great and it’s a fun, safe community that has lots of great amenities. Lots of friends up here!
There are many great benefits of living here, the pool, food and great bus routes. Maintenance requests are answered quickly and efficiently. The only "issue" is the matter of visitors parking, I will we had passes because there never seem to be enough. Other then that, I would definitely recommend living here!
Great place to live. Some things could have been cleaner on move in. At first glance everything looked great but I noticed more and more things that could have been prepped before moving in. The pool and volleyball court are nice additions and it’s great that bus passes are provided.
Absolutely love it. Spacious and clean. Maintenance very on top of service orders. Buses run very well to and from campus, and for the most part is always on time.
It's a five-minute walk from walmart and other supermarkets. The bus station is right next to the apartment！The environment is good, too. The interior is well equipped.
It is amazing living here. The quality of the apartment and the included furniture is impeccable. The staff is very friendly and makes me feel important. I recommend the Pointe to everyone.
nice apartments, individual leases and great amenities! buss pass is included and convenient. comes furnished. appliances could use some updating.
Deffiently a 5 start. It's always clean and quite here so it's very ideal for s college student. Rooms are actually spacious and individual bathrooms are the best
The apartment when we first moved in wasn’t cleaned or painted all that well. There needs to be some kind f inspection after the cleaners and painters do their work. The washer flooded out kitchen, other than that the facilities are nice.
Pretty good, staff is responsive, just some things in the appartment are meh but in comparison to other places it’s pretty good. It is a little pricey but you also have access to a gym, pool, volleyball court and game room
nice student living, own room and bathroom, staff is nice, kinda far from campus, but sometimes that's a good thing... lot of retail options
The amenities at the pointe are a definite upside. I have used the gym multiple times as well as the printer. The only actual complaints I have revolve around the community transfer policy. Having a "quota" for community transfers is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen from an apartment complex. Not all of your residences are your typical college age resident and can go home to mom and dad in between semesters.
My experience at the pointe has been different. I love having my own bedroom and bath but the only default is the maintenance. For a simple task maintance will take almost 1 week to come and fix it.
Location, and bedrooms great! Although we Wish we had better electronic appliances. The washing machines are super old so it gets hard to wash clothes
I like living off campus, it's different than what I'm used to everyday. However, a few maintenane requests had to be put in immediately after move-in, as I had a clogged sink, a couch with springs starting to spring up, and wasps getting between my screen window and glass. Otherwise, it's pretty nice.
I love living at The Pointe! Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. The maintenance team is quick to fix any problems in my apartment, and the lease price covers an abundance of amenities.
So far everything's been good but unfortunately my entrance key-card is not working decently. I have been to the office at least 10 times already to let them recode my card. Not the most convinient thing to do.
The Pointe has good rate among all apartment complexes in State College. Supportive and helpful staff members. The quality of the apartment is very nice and convenient
The Pointe is great! The apartments are homie, the location is close to places, and the club house and pool are so convenient! The bus passes are also a plus.
Living at the pointe has been not only convienient (includes a bus pass for transportation to and from campus), but has made me feel like I have a home at Penn State.
Little response from the office when there is an issue. I had a worked walk into my apartment when I wasn't fully dressed. Called to speak with someone, and they seemed to brush it off. Otherwise, I love my apartment. It feels like home.
The pointe is an interesting place. It’s quiet and not to bad. Community is good, and walk to say Walmart isn’t to bad. The pointe has something for you to do whether it’s working out, to basketball, to volleyball.
I just moved in and move in was easy and smooth and I have great roommates. However it is clear that my apartment had not been cleaned from the previous tenent and I spent about an hour scrubbing my bathroom and sweeping the common area.
The staff is always willing to help you when you go into the office and they always make sure that you are getting what you need. Then they have activities and events that engage you with The Pointe community.
This place is pretty good for its worth. You get your own room and bathroom, while the living area and kitchen is usually shared between you and a couple of roommates. There's also a public gym and computer lounge for residents to use. A bus pass is provided free of charge to get to and from campus.
The policies suck but living with my own room and bathroom and separate rent bills is honestly the only reason I’m living here for two years.
Pointe is good location, wish the office were a bit more flexible in meeting needs. Also washing machine and some appliances are outdated considering the rent we pay
The Pointe offers a lot of things that are amazing. For example, everyone getting their own personal bedroom and bathroom is a huge plus for me. This way you have a private area that you can make your own. Another thing that is great is the washer dryer in the unit. This makes laundry SO much easier. Overall this is a great place to live.
The apartment community at The Pointe is usually quiet and relaxing and rarely loud and crowded. The furniture in the apartments could be nicer and their cleaning crew does a terrible job, the maintenance guys reek of cigarettes which lingers in the apartment for hours and I wish they allowed double occupancy rooms to cut down on the cost of rent.
The staff at the Pointe are fantastic individuals! They are cooperative and willing to help you in any way possible. The apartment complex was also reasonably clean and quiet.
My experience at the point has been great. The amenities provided by the point are great, such as the pool and the volleyball court. Happy to live here!
I had a great experience living at The Pointe. I think it is a perfect place to be if you are looking for clean and quiet. The complexes are very nice.
Trade off to location is that it is near all the groceries and great places for food. My main complaint is that they have a weird path from the parking lot in front of the club house to the parking lot by building 5 & 6. Should just be paved, it looks awful and people drive over it anyways, makes no sense to be driving around 6 buildings internally when my building is on the street
I like the sense of community that comes with living at The Pointe Apartments. Free parking is hard to come by in State College, so that was a huge bonus.
Great place to live. Away from the noise of campus and downtown and walking distance from grocery stores. You get your own bedroom and bathroom which is great amenity.
The Pointe has a very friendly staff. They are always very attentive and are prompt with helping. The pet policy is very good and the facilities are very clean.
My experience at the pointe was near perfection. The apartment setup is individualized, and comes with all of your needs! I would recommend anyone to live here because of the staff and students.
The staff is friendly but can be very rude at times. This place is okay. I think it’s a bit pricey for what you is available to you. The building is very far from the bus stop and walking up 3 flights of stairs is healthy but not fun, especially with groceries.
The Pointe has a very beach-like feel to it due to the colorful buildings, the pool, the grill, and the volleyball court. Though these features work to build a sense of community, it is still nice to live in a place where you have the privacy of your own room and bathroom.
It is really well maintained and at a really good location, with just a 5 minute walking distance to Walmart and Megabus Stop. The bus stop is right outside the apartment complex as well.
The pointe so far has been pretty good. I only moved in last year and I will be moving from a 2 person to a three person apartment in order to save some money.
I really enjoy living here. Great location geographically. Not many places have private bathrooms AND in-unit laundry. Built-in bus pass and cable help make up for the steep rent.
Friendly staff and location is convenient convenient, both for shopping and getting to campus. The units could use some updating to the appliances.
Great place to live! Very nice to have your own room and bathroom. Very convenient location to campus if you have a car because the bus is a pain.
I lived here for 3 years in a 4 bed/ 4 bath and over all it is not a bad place to live. Rent is a bit high but other than that it is great !
Good place for a good price. Close to campus and busses come often. Renovating a lot so it will be even better. Host lots of events throughout the year and is deffinetly better than some other places around.
I love how spacious my apartment is, I was able to move my room around and redecorate. Whenever I have a problem, I call maintenance and they quickly resolve it.
Very good overall. The neighborhood is safe, roommate matching system is good, fair price, the staffs are really nice, and the location is pretty good too.
everyone is so nice and friendly. The roomates I had were perfect. We never had any noise issues, and the staff are always timely when we needed any services.
I love having my own bathroom. This is a huge plus compared to other apartment complexes in the State College area. I also like winning rewards!
It was pretty dope. I saw zombies and tigers came from the forest to tell me stories of the land of milk and cookies. Bottom line, their service is cool
The community is nice but so many things break in this apartment we pay far to much money for this apartment to be falling apart. Honestly other then that was not a bad experience living here
My overall experience at The Pointe was really good. A great community with a great staff who take care of the residents. The amenities were always well maintained. In addition, The Pointe always offered free food and fun events to make the living expirence even better.
Great apartment complex for a great price. The clubhouse and pool are awesome, great places to hang put with friends. The staff is nice and helpful too.
The quality of living here was medium-high (7.5-8). However, the unexpected fees for paying utilities and rent insurance were a nuance. Management does a good job of solving student’s problems.
I have really enjoyed living at the Pointe! The amenities are great! During the week the staff provides some snacks in the office for residents. I have already signed my lease for the upcoming school year.
It's been a good experience. When you start taking advantages of what they offer and meet people around, it becomes better. Loving the gym, and specially the basket cort.
The pointe is an ideal place to live if you’re looking for a convenient location to campus and stores. The community is very peaceful and quiet and has a lot of new amenities being built
The pointe is a great place to live. I really love living there. Great people and great environment. Can't wait to move in in the this fall.
The community is well kept and maintained. The Apartments are a little dirty when first moved in, a good cleaning is all that is needed. Maintenence is quick on repairs.
Not too bad at all. I enjoyed living here for three years and will be moving out now. Internet was kind of slow but overall the experience was not too bad
The people above me are very loud. i wish that the walls were a bit thicker. I also wish that there was more parking and visitors parking because it is always full and hard to find a spot
The Pointe is a great place to live for undergraduate students like myself! When I first got here the CATA buses are very convenient because it runs every 20 minutes on week days.
Things have slowly been improving, which makes it better. Before, it took forever for maintenance to respond, but they've been awesome lately. Unfortunately, the women in the office don't seem too thrilled, and it shows. It makes us uncomfortable to enter the office. Otherwise, things are improving.
This apartment is a nice break from campus. Having my own room and bathroom is an obvious plus. Ain’t no twin beds out here! Plowing/shoveling sucks. Should pave the weird cross between the lot in front of the club house to buildings 5, 6, and so on
The Pointe has great amenities and having your own bedroom AND bathroom is awesome. The apartments are nicely kept inside and maintenance is always willing to help out!
RA sucks, other stuff were fine. secretly raised my rent by $20. The air conditioner was loud, and it doesn't have a sensor on each room, so it's rather too hot or too cold. Fridge make weird sounds
Actual hell because of my constant rude and passive agressive roomate. Apparently not allowed to move units to help my mental health and actually be able to use the kitchen and living room.
The Pointe really is an awesome place to live. Especially summer because of the incredible pool but the entire clubhouse is net. I always liked how clean and quiet it was there.
This place has a nice exterior, but once you peel it back, it gets bad. They treat you like you don't matter. They take weeks to answer your maintenance requests. They make you feel belittled when you want help. If you want to live here, pray that your apartment never gets an issue after syllabus week, and don't bother with the office unless you absolutely have to. Nice gym though.
I have enjoyed for the most part my time at the Pointe. One of my biggest concerns is that I have reported about neighboring residents smoking near my apartment and leaving their cigarettes all near my apartment. The inside of the apartment is great and I have had no problems inside since I have been at the Pointe!
I toured the apartments for next semester at school, and I cannot wait to move in. Everything looks in good shape. Maintenance and staff are very kind which is very reassuring.
My first year was good. I moved in in a clean apartment and maintenance was quick to respond when requested. However, my second year, I moved to a different unit and one of my roommates just renewed his lease from the year before so the common areas were not cleaned.

Overall, the Pointe community is great. There are plenty of amenities for a pretty great price. I did not rate it five stars because when my roommates and I first moved in, the apartment was not clean and the paint job was not the greatest, but that didn't surprise me since our rent was not too bad for having our own bedroom and bathroom. They have recently updated the computer lab, gym, and are adding other ammenities. I would renew my lease if I wasn't graduating this semester.
The units and amenities themselves are very nice. My interactions with management over the last two years, however, have not been very nice.
The pointe is a great place to live in state college. It is relatively close to campus with a bus system to take you to campus and downtown.
The Pointe is a great neighborhood. Maintenance comes almost automatically, and the staff is always ready to help. I also love the 24 hours on call service that they have, because I get locked out of my apartment at random times.
The pointe resident provides a peaceful and friendly environment perfect for college students. The service and facilities that it provides is beyond exceptional
Had a great time living at the Pointe. Only compliant would Elawuit. Terrible internet and the cable would go out randomly. Other than that everything else is fine.
I love my bedroom and the balcony provided to us. Maintenance is quick to help and the staff is very kind and professional. I wish EDR management had more leasing options.
My experience with the pointe apartments at state college have been everything that I could have wanted. The community here including the staff are perfect!
The apartment itself is a lot better than you'd expect, with each person having their own room and bathroom. Living space is shared, though that's not really a big issue. Otherwise, there isn't too much incentive to join in on any community activities, so you can make your circle as big or as small as you want.
It’s a great apartment. You get your own bedroom and bathroom. There’s a clubhouse with a gym. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well.
It is so great here and the staff is super great because they are very involved and host great events at the main building.
I love having my own bathroom.
The Pointe is a great place to stay! The rooms are cozy and comfortable, the clubhouse is great, the pool is perfect for those days you need to relax, and its in such a great spot locally!
Good overall experience. Friendly and helpful staff. There were a lot of appealing amenities such as the gym, basketball court and pool area.
I love living at the pointe. They offer so much like a pool and gym and study room. And you get your own privacy in your home. They also offer free parking for your visitors!
quiet, nice quality and community, reply to maintenance really fast, could improve furnitures, hope can provide mail lockers for UPS not just for USPS
I truly enjoy staying at the Pointe in State College. Overall, the community is nice and up-kept. I appreciate the fact that the staff is so helpful and respectful. So far, if i had an issue it always has been solved.
Nice way to get away from the crowded downtown area. Reasonable price for all amenities provided to us. Parking is free but around certain areas there isn’t many spots.
The room was dirty when we got here but that was because our roommate had lived her the year prior. Maintenance is always very timely. The volleyball courts are awesome my friends and I use it all the time.
The Pointe is a great place to live they offer free snacks on Tuesday nights (nachos or hot dogs), offer on the go breakfast by the bus stop and I love that they have an outdoor pool. The staff is really professional and nice. The only thing I wish they had were elevators because I live on the third floor and bringing everything up two flights of stairs is not what I want to do all the time I grocery shop.
I have had such an amazing experience. The roommate match system worked perfect, and I love that we all have our own room and bathroom. I wish that our hot water tanks would last longer. I could not ask for anything more from the Pointe. You guys are great.
I have been living here since Junior year and am generally satsified with my experience. Maintenance is one of the best. They are very helpful and fix the problem within a day or two. They also have free food during the week in the clubhouse. The location is great.
Good place to live. Close to campus and the bus pass is provided. Has a good gym for apartments and the rooms are nice for the price. Basically everything is what you would expect it to be.
With an upcoming remodeling of the club house I'm excited to see how the few things that could be fixed are indeed improved. I enjoy the perks that the Pointe offers, so I'd recommend this place, especially with their referral deals.
Apartments need to be maintained in better condition. Maintenance is pretty good.
Icy sidewalks should be cleared to a better extent.
More meatball subs events!
I really like how the pointe offers a shuttle to campus at different times of the day/night. This makes it very convenient to get to class. A+ quality
So far, I really like living here. The location is very convenient.
Maintenance is good as well. Really quick respond.
The amenities are nice as well
The Pointe is great, I made a lot of friends their and the staff is very kind and helpful. The complex is well managed and the pool is a great amenity.
This place is nice, but does need work and may not be worth the price. My bathroom wasn't clean when I moved in. The heating never works the way it should. The gym doesn't have any wipes to clean the equipment. And the computer lab has three computers that can actually print. But two of them sometimes don't work.
The pointe is a great community to live at if you're looking for somewhere close to walmart or any grocery store. But it is a bit inconvenient to go to campus and it is too expensive.
Great place to live. Rooms just the right size. Nice pool and other amenities like the work out room and game room. They even stood outside and provided breakfast for tenants at the bus stop.
Excellent staff and location. First-rate amenities and great neighbors. Only downside: limited parking. I have lives here about 2 years and I love it.
I love it here. I love my apartment. The only complaint I have is that my upstairs neighbors like to stomp 24/7 and it drives us all bananas
I have ya d a great experience living at the pointe! It’s comfortable, they’re quick to help you with any problems, and on top of that it’s beautiful!
I really enjoy living at the pointe. There are so many amenities that if we need anything its usually there. I just wish the staff was friendlier and apartments were cleaner upon move in.
I am happy overall with my own personal experience in the community, but it gets a little noisy at times--not at the fault of the apartment complex. I also am not the biggest fan of the decision to use swipe cards as keys. I would much rather prefer a physical key and lock as I feel it is more reliable and easier to keep track of.
I’ve enjoyed living here and have had nothing but pleasant interactions with office staff and property managers. They are quick to reply and make processes as simple and streamlined as possible.
Everything here is a great exprience. Especially the friendly neighborhood. People never party that much like other places. It is quite and safe. A great place for off campus housing.
The Pointe is very clean and fun. There's plenty of privacy and activities to do as well as quite places to study. I think The Pointe is cool
Some of the maintenance requests like our kitchen light takes a long time but most of the maintenance is fast. Sometimes things break or are sub par but are still manageable and work. It’s a good amount of space so i like it.
The Pointe was pretty understanding when I wanted to move apartments and they allowed me to do it as soon as possible. The workers are very kind as well.
This is a great place to stay at. convenient location (Walmart, Trader Joes, Bestbuy, etc. etc.) and buses come to and from campus very frequently.
The Pointe has good living conditions and has a good range of facilities available for residents such as a gym, study room with accessible computers, and an indoor basketball court.
The community overall is welcoming, and the apartment complex itself initiates fun events for tenants. However, one complaint on my end is that some other tenants above my apartment are extremely loud and jump around because they "exercise".
It is always clean, maintenance is fast, and my problems are quickly resolved. The apartments themselves are nice and provide adequate climate control.
So far my experience at The Pointe has been above average. Because I have never lived in another apartment I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. Among the few complaints I do have is that I feel as though maintenance isn't always the best and the community isn't as connected as it was made to seem.
Sauna needs to be built and computers in study room should be able to support Google Chrome, some do but not all. Dog litter stations need trash bags replaced as well.
Maintenance is very timely. The apartment is nice for a college apartment. I wish for the pet policy you only had to pay the 200$ and not have to pay the monthly fee as well.
The room is cold and dry. Some parts a little bit old and need updates. However, I enjoy its location, gym, and the bus stop. I signed up for the next year lease
The Pointe amenities are great and always in good shape. It is farther from campus, but with the free parking spaces and free bus pass, it is an easy commute.
I have had a wonderful experience as a Pointe resident. I was frequently in the office in and out with random questions and was always treated with such manners and timeliness. They really are great at responding to your needs and questions quickly.
The pointe is a good place to live in state college. I think it is convenient to have your own bedroom and bathroom as opposed to other complexes.
The apartment was dirty when we moved in, but after that, anything that needed to be fixed was quickly fixed by maintenance. The Clubhouse is nice.
I like here since I can do exercise whenever I want and I like the food that is offered by the office. Also, the bus stop is pretty close so it is easy to go to school.
It’s very nice to stay at Pointe community for two years at state college. Some emergency situations the staff and maintenance team handled out
Nice getaway from campus, helpful staff, quick maintenance response, convenient to local restaurants. Snow clean up could be better, they don’t really show up till about 10 an after snowfall and only shovel steps up to second floor, not to third.
My experience was ok.. I had a bad roommate which didn't help my experience. Overall the pointe was accommodating. I enjoyed that we had a gym.
Great place to live, friendly community and the staff in the office is always helpful and quick to answer questions. The free food is always a plus, too!
Very impressed with how kindly I have been treated so far, and am very excited to move in this summer. Very positive experience so far, and I recommend to anyone looking for a place to live at University Park.
It's a nice place to be. It is about a 35 min walk from campus, but the bus is actually very easy to get on if you plan for it.
The apartment is just what I need. You also get opportunities for free food and snacks.
I really enjoy living at the Pointe, it has been a wonderful experience thus far and I totally love having my own bathroom and a full sized bed
The pool located in the club house is where I spent my days during the warm weather. Its always clean and relaxing. The gym is located in the perfect spot with easy access day or night.
So far I have had a fairly decent experience at The Pointe. My favorite thing has to be the events that have been held. The free food, poker night, volleyball tournament, and finals week prep really gave a sense of community to the complex. Additionally the maintenance crew has been quick and reliable with our problems. My one gripe is that the apartments could have been cleaned better in between different residents moving in and out, however there was nothing that we could not handle on our own as far as cleaning goes.
the apartments are excellent. great privacy with your own room and bathroom. the shared spaces are spacious and i love that every apartment has its own washer, dryer, and balcony. the free food the office provides is also a nice touch
Everything is always kept clean throughout the complex. Snow removal could be a lot better but landscaping in the summer/fall is excellent. The amenities are awesome!
I have lived at the Pointe for a little over 4 months now and I love it! The apartment itself has been great, and there are a lot of opportunities for community involvement that make it a great place to live!
Overall, I like the experience I have had the the pointe. Everything has worked well since the day we moved in and the price was good. The only bad thing was it was NOT cleaned when we first moved in.
I loved the apartment layout and amenities, didn’t mind the location, but thought some things were made a bit more difficult than they should/could have been. Apartment cleanliness during move-in could definitely improve, and more resident-management interaction would really benefit both parties. The casino night , nacho bars, etc. really help build a relationship.
The noise levels are a little high but over all a great experience, the daily free food in the main lobby is awesome and they throw great events
The living experience is very good. The staff is friendly and the maintenance requests are responsive. Overall it’s a very good place to live.
Been really good so far. My friends are here so that's nice. People here are nice. There is a place for me to park. There is a towing service that wants to each car.
The Pointe is a quality living experience for the State College area. The apartments are spacious and convenient. Separate, locked rooms are secure. Maintenance is timely.
Very Friendly environment with awesome staff! There is a clubhouse to do workouts so you do not have to come to campus, and maintenance requests for issues in the apartment come by very fast
The apartments are nice, but the staff seems very unorganized. It takes forever yo get a hold of maintenance, and sometimes they never respond. Snowing? Don't count on the sidewalks being done.
Parties and Free foods.
It's nice that it is placed just next to the Walmart complex, so grocery shopping is easy; Best Buy and other shops are close. Also, they give you a bus pass.
I have lived here for 7 months now, the community is great and the location is perfect! The staff is very nice and I couldn’t have asked for a better place to live.
I enjoy the Pointe very much. Whenever you submit maintenance requests they're very timely and nice if you accidentally lock yourself out of your room. The almost-weekly free food is great, too. The on-site facilities are very nice as well. However, the only thing I didn't like was the cleanliness of my room upon initial arrival. Overall, very nice.
Everything here is just how i expected the only issues i have had are the ones due to wifi connection. The WiFi here is not the best but everything else is great. Maintence is extremely friendly and helpful when they get to you.
Great living at the pointe was great. I lived here for two years and enjoyed it a lot. I had some very nice roommates and my time here was very enjoyable.
Apartment complex is very understanding and accommodating to one's needs. The only complaint is that the apartment could be cleaner when I moved in.
It has been okay so far. I like having my own space which most apartments do not offer. Maintenance does not take too long to come fix things so that’s good
The apartments are very cozy and have everything a college student could need. Only downside is there is a small draft from the windows. Everything is very close and the clubhouse is great.
Moved in to a place with a ton wrong, my complaints go unnoticed. Price is good though for a solid apartment. I wouldn't discouraged anyone from moving here.
The pointe is a nice place to be at, i like that i have my own bedroom and bathroom, and the fact that theres a free coffee machine in the clubhouse
Pros: you get your own bedroom and bathroom; pool; good furniture and space for the price; i liked that they had a roommate matching service which I used successfully last semester to find my great roommates
Cons: buses can get backed up sometimes; farther from campus; electricity/gas bill is higher than told
The Pointe has many events and has free food often. Sometimes maintenance doesn’t fix what you would like them to. But the busses to campus are regular and always full.
It’s been a good ride so far, i live with three other people and it has been much better than I expected, since 4 is quite a mumber. The service is good and although they have old furniture it was kept in good conditions
An unnecessary 300 dollar "renovation fee" when they literally do nothing. Moving in, my apartment was filthy. But other than that, it's pretty good for the most part.
I am very pleased with The Pointe. I love all of the community events the company offers, including, but not limited to, the complimentary Nacho Tuesdays And Weenie Wednesdays. Also, the staff is always so friendly and willing to help. Every time I have put a maintenance request in, the issues are attended to within a reasonable amount of time.
If you're looking for a fun and exciting living experience in State College, look no further than The Pointe! We have amped up the apartment lifestyle by providing our residents with an interactive boxing machine, indoor basketball court, sand volleyball court and pool parties like the city's never seen! Our residents enjoy a carefree rental package that covers cable, internet and furniture, so they can focus on their studies or enjoy cheering on Penn State Men's Hockey while our attentive management staff takes care of the details. Did we mention that we're just 5 minutes from Pennsylvania State University? Close enough to get to campus on our express shuttle but separated just enough to enjoy the privacy of off-campus living.
Iv had a good experience so far. I renewed my apartment a third year in a row and then I will graduate. The only problem is the buses but thats out of the pointes control.
I love having my own room. This complex is amazing. The parking situation is great. The furniture is all nice and the people are prompt with helping.
I've lived in a 4-bedroom apartment for the past year and a half. The apartment is pretty big and comes with plenty of furniture. Rooms all have full-sized beds, a full closet, dresser, desk, and chair. When I first moved in, the apartment was filthy. They claim they clean the apartments before you move in but that definitely was not the case here. When we called to complain, they sent some cleaning people who did not really do much anyway. My roommates, our parents, and I had to completely clean the place before moving anything in. While living here, maintenance has been pretty responsive; however, don't expect them to try to fix your washer/dryer when something is clearly wrong with it. Ours has ruined several of our clothing items. The AC/heating unit does not cool down/heat the apartment evenly. Two rooms are always too hot and two rooms are always too cold. This could be due to the doors' and windows' terrible insulations. You can feel the cold coming in just sitting and standing near a window/door. Also, during the summer (while we weren't living in the apartment) they automatically kicked on the AC for whatever reason, causing our utilities bill to be pretty expensive even though we weren't even living there. The pool area is nice. The gym is decent but could be bigger. They used to have a tanning bed, but never replaced it when it broke which was disappointing. They give you a bus pass which is nice, but the CATA bus system can be inaccurate sometimes. There is guest parking spaces, but not nearly enough. There are way too many resident parking spots, which they could easily turn into guest parking. It's a decent place to live if you're looking for a quiet place away from campus and downtown distractions. They definitely need to do some work to fix of the apartments (walls, floors, crown molding, and CLEAN!!)
Apartments are nice but a little too expensive. Sometimes they have fun things in the clubhouse like casino night. Maintenance requests are usually completed pretty quickly.
The Pointe is a pretty good place to live. The buses run often enough so you can get to campus or downtown when you need too. There are also stores and restaurants within walking distance of my apartment.
My roommate and I are very happy with the new apt. we were given. The new place matches all of our criteria and requests. Thank you so much!
Really nice place but the VE busses can be a pain. It’s nice having my own bedroom and bathroom. Maintenance staff are quick to help out when needed.
I love it here. Waiting for the bus kinda stinks. But great facilities, especially the gym, love it!! The pool is beautiful. Love how the rooms and living space is set up
Living at the pointe has been amazing! Management has been helpful with every question I have, every problem I have, and is quick to find solutions to problems within the community.
I love it here at the pointe apartements. I am very close to the bus stop and the lobby area. I like these things cause they are very convienient
It is a cozy community at the pointe. Not too loud or quite. I’ve never had problems with neighbors, and the do a swell job with community activities.
The pointe is a cool place. its great having your own bedroom and bathroom. the only thing that sucks is the wifi is terrible and there is barely any visitor parking.
The quarterly inspections are a little too much. I am unconformable with people checking my apartment, I don't think adults should be treated that way.
The only downfall is the keys are like hotel keys and if you leave it near your phone it deactivates. So it's just annoying if you come home late and try to swipe in and it doesn't work.
Friendly staff, good buildings, nice to have own bedroom and bathroom, convenient location from campus and near stores like walmart, nice parking
Pro: close to walmart, bus stop, community pool, gym, table tennis table, overall friendly staff, hot dog on occasions.
Con: too crowded bus stop, really thin wall and ground, sometimes noisy.
Lots of things to make residents feel special. such as the free food during the weekdays or the special events. even just having the clubhouse is nice.
I love the perks that the Pointe offers. And now that there the complex is pet friendly it's even merrier. There are only a couple of things that I'd suggest changing, more visitor parking spots, trash cans in the public areas and walking paths, better quality cable, the signla for the TV channels, fluctuate and are very inconsistent in some important channels, like ESPN, and replacing the chairs at the computer lab.
It is pretty nice, but some apartments are dirty upon move-in. My apartment was not extremely dirty but still required some cleaning in order to comfortably live there.
For the most part the community surrounding me is pleasant and I haven't had very many issues. The only issue i've had is our neighbors upstairs being excessively loud.
It’s a quite complex perfect for people who don’t like the crowds of craziness of down town. Maintenance is the best and come almost as soon as you send out the request!
they said they would fix stuff and never come. Left a wet dirty plunger on our living room floor. Place was dirty moving in. But you win some and you lose some
Overall ok, I enjoy to live in the environment where has complete facility like gym, and all other staff, etc. The location of the apartment is nice.
I moved to Penn State this fall, and I came to The Pointe. It was not my best experience, but I thank God anyways. I received the apt not in good condiction. The water quality is not the best. I have to buy mineral water every month even to cook. So, my experience is not 100% good.
Really comfortable stay overall. Started here last year. My friends and I love the atmosphere here off campus. Would recommend to prospective residents.
I absolutely love it here, it is very spacious and there are plenty of amenities. The individual lease option is great. The only thing is that it is far from campus. I would recommend adding studio apartments.
For the price, this apartment experience is pretty good. Having your own room and bathroom, a nice kitchen, and a washer and dryer in each unit is so convenient and important to a great living experience. The unit has pretty much everything you need to be comfortable, and the design is modern so you feel good about where you're staying.
I love living here for the most part. Maintenance can be a pain sometimes because there’s no way to know when they’ll be here to fix a problem. Other than that it’s great living here.
No problems. Could use more recycling/ a better recycling system. Occasionally the noise levels are too much, however it isn't that back and is only on the weekends. Although I do not care for the constant radio playing at the clubhouse.
The apartment is okay. There are little problems when it comes to needing fixes and when there is, things usually get fixed right away. The only bad thing is the trash that is left around in the grass, etc, and not cleaned up.

good apartment community, great apartment community, excellent apartment community, wonderful apartment community, good apartment community.
The apartment is clean and modern compared to other apartments in the area. Maintaine always answers requests within a few days and the office staff is helpful
I have a had a nice experience at The Pointe. I wish their was more kitchen counter space but besides that, I have no complaints. Maintenance is good!
The Pointe is a nice place to get away from the sometimes busy and chaotic downtown apartments. There are lots of amenities and it comes at a competitive price. The only draw back I have found so far is the initial state of the apartment when we moved in. It was filthy and our dryer didn’t even work
If I had to choose where to live off campus again, I wouldn’t choose anyplace else. The Pointe has been a great place for my roommates and I to stay.
While the maintenance crew needs to step up their game and there are occasionally problems with the apartment, the pointe is in my opinion the best place to live on vairo boulevard
If you don't wanna live in crowded place, the Pointe is the place to live. You'll get a gym, a bus pass and fairly good apartment space. They also have free food sometimes.
The Pointe has fun and special activities on some weekends that get community members involved. I also like that they have popcorn Fridays and other events and giveaways.
The location is too far from campus and sucks especially cause of the construction on Atherton. The costs of ubers on the weekends add up along with on campus parking. You need to make it more affordable and worth it for students to live here.
The rooms are very spacious, the beds are extremely comfortable. The private bathrooms are a great accommodation. The amenities such as the gym and lounge area well kept and always available.
Pointe apartments are not good at all. They are broken down. Washer and dryer don't work properly. Utility bills are through the roof. Also, the walls are paper thin so you can hear every little noise. There are much better deals out there. I am not living here ever again
Love the environment! Just a nice community to be in. Office staff are friendly and the free services are great. The gym is well taken care of
This is a good college community with a lot of fun activities. It is quiet, so it's easy to study. Maintenance requests are easy to submit, and they usually come within a day or two.
Safe department to leave, quick maintenance. This is my second year live here, and I will renew for next year also. Strongly recommended to leave at the pointe if you prefer apartment over a townhouse and prefer have your own bathroom.
Though I don't feel like there are alot of events to meet people my overall experience with management and staff is great. I love when they have food in the club house and when there are events
It is nice and quite, and eveyone is really helpful. The gum and computer room are really convenient.
The apartments are really clean as well.
Living at the pointe was very comfortable. It's definitely way cheaper than living on campus since you have your own bedroom and bathroom. And it's pretty close to walmart and other stores like segments. Nice experience
Cozy, safe place to live with affordable rates. Neighbors are friendly. Great amenities - gym, computer lab, pool, recreation room, etc. Close to Walmart and other stores for convenience.
Enjoy having my own room and bathroom, location is a little far from campus for having friends over, apartments are almost guaranteed to be dirty upon move in and you will most likely have to clean them yourselves, and management can be very difficult to deal with at times. Also the rising prices make it a lot less desirable, shell out the extra 50 or so for a newer complex.
When I first moved in some things were not as clean as I would have hoped, but overall compared to other places it was a lot better. The rooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable and maintenance crew is amazing!!!!
The apartments themselves were a bit mesy in move in and my sink kept leaking however staff was very considerate and spent a lot of time trying to help me.
I came into my apartment through The Pointe's roommate matching and I was surprised and pleased with the my new roommates. It made transitioning to a new apartment on my own much easier.
The apartment complex is great to live in. The pool, gym, nachos and popcorn all make it a welcoming place. However, the cleanliness of the rooms could be improved. Our apartment has repeatedly asked to have our air vents and sprinklers cleaned because we truly believe they are a health and safety hazard and it is week 8 and they have yet to be cleaned.
Good place to live. Close to campus and the bus pass is provided. Has a good gym for apartments and the rooms are nice for the price. Basically everything is what you would expect it to be.
Pretty nice place, quiet and has nice amenities. Friendly staff, good transport options to campus and near to Walmart as well. Affordable rent.
The Pointe is a good bang for your buck. The move in process is super easy and the apartments are spacious, some heavy cleaning is needed when you move in.
Overall, nice place to live, but upon moving in my apartment was trashed. The Pointe did send cleaners to clean, however the point is it should have been clean before I moved in. My carpet was not replaced until a week later and it was installed incorrectly, I'm still waiting for that mistake to be fixed now 7 weeks later. I do not appreciate moving into a gross apartment.
I like living at the pointe its fund because all my friends live close by and you guys have the little nacho bar thats really fun also. You guys should add a hot tub or a sauna
My apartment its really been comfortable and enough for me to live I really like how the space is distributed and overall is a really good place. Plus I love how the whole community is mantain.
I really like the amenities that are offered such as the pool, computer lab, gym, game room, tanning bed, ect. It is also really nice to have your own personal bedroom and bathroom. Appliances could use some updating and apartments could be cleaned better upon move in.
Very clean and convenient apartment complex. The staffs are fast and helpful. Most importantly, the rate is much lower than other places. Highly recommended
I decided to live at the Pointe because of the four bedroom and four bathroom accommodation. I love living here mostly for that reason. Aside from that, the community is great and its never too noisy.
I love it here. It’s a little far from campus but we have a bus that takes us directly there and not to mention everything we need shopping wise is right beside us.
The atmosphere at the Pointe is great. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Our apartment is in great shape and is a great value compared to some other apartments at State College. Glad we resigned.
Great place to live, if there are any problems, the office is always quick to respond! Nice that it's a little bit away from campus so it's like an oasis
Really enjoy living here. I enjoy all of the different amenities that are present in my apartment. My room mates are cool too they do not suck
Great Overall. Love all the equipments and utilities! The indoor basketball court is one of the greatest! Wonderful views. It's just a little bit noisy on weekends.
The neighborhood is quiet, with stores and restaurants conveniently located. The maintenance team and staff are awesome and quick to respond to any questions and issues.
I love the pointe. I love its facility and how i have my bathroom in my room. maintenance needs some work though. there are some parts of my room that needs repair.
It is the third year that I am living here. The overall quality is good. However, the facilities in our apartment seems pretty old and it takes time for repair.
The community is a great place to live. There is enough parking for everyone and the apartments are spacious and I really enjoy having my own bedroom and bathroom. I also like the fact that each apartment has a washing machine and a dryer, it makes washing my clothes very easy and stress free.
The Pointe is a fantastic place to live! The apartments are clean and spacious, the staff is always helpful, and free food is provided often! I could not ask for a better place to call home!
Great place to live, relatively quiet and awesome accommodations. I wasn't entirely sure about the whole apartment thing after living in the dorms, but it worked out and I love it.
It's ok I guess. I would like to say that the third floor of the apartments are absolutely filthy. I'm talking about the walkways of course.
I think the Pointe is a very nice and comfortable place to live in State College. The amenities given to us are very nice as well as the comfortable living spaces.
I like the surrounding environment and how I am close to the bus stop. Nice facility and staff members. So complaints so far. Hope to live here next year
I have had a really good experience here at The Pointe. The size of the apartment is great, the clubhouse is well kept and it has a good atmosphere. However, taking the bus everyday is the only downside.
The Pointe is a good place to live. The staff seems to honestly care and want to help you. The location is a bit away from State College, but the bus or a car fixes that. The apartments are good and even if you don't like your roommate you wont really notice them unless you go out of your way.
