Grayson Cottages is a great place to live. The spacious households are wonderful, especially for pet owners. The community is friendly and quiet and I've never had a single issue. The staff is very helpful as well, which is sometimes a hard thing to come by in student housing facilities.

– Michelle L

This is the best place I have lived my entire college career and I plan to stay until I graduate. It has a lot of great benefits for a reasonable price compared to rival apartment companies. I highly recommend living here if you prefer a home rather than an apartment and if you hate hearing apartment noise.

– Melissa B

I'm very happy with the services, staff, and community. Everything has been convenient and all of my requests have been met! Wish I could stay here next year but I'm graduating.
