Whenever anyone asks me for an apartment recommendation in Columbus, I instantly recommend Colony Square. My wife and I love living here! We are graduate students at Ohio State, and it suits our living needs perfectly.

Pros of Colony Square
Its close to the OSU campus (roughly 2-2.5 miles away)
o Its just a 6-7 minute walk to the COTA bus station, which has buses that take you right to campus or down to the Short North, Arena District, etc.
o Its about a mile away from the awesome Columbus bike trails
o The proximity allows my wife and I to live quite comfortably with just one car.

It is very quiet and peaceful (which is not the norm for a lot of apartment buildings close to a major university.)

Management is extremely responsive to resident needs, friendly, and eager to help.

The apartments are clean and the grounds are well-kept. There is a really nice pool and some handy charcoal grills that residents can use.

It is cheaper than anything we found for similar quality. This is the game changer. We are married and had a nice two-bedroom apartment at CS for $620 rent/month this past year. There are undoubtedly cheaper places in Columbus, but I would honestly be surprised to find one with all the benefits of Colony Square for similar prices

Cons of Colony Square
The only real con for us has been cell phone reception (for Verizon). I have no idea if this affects all of Colony Square or just our apartment. Sometimes in our apartment there are dead zones where we lose reception. That said, its a problem easily solved, as a network extender from Verizon should solve any reception issues that you might have.

We have renewed our lease for another year, and, if we get jobs in Columbus, will likely stay at Colony Square for longer than that!

(Last year when we moved in (early July), the complex was already booked completely for the upcoming school year. If you are looking for apartments and are considering Colony Square, keep in mind that apartments here go quickly.)

Because it definitely feels that way after a few personal touches. They offer one and two bedroom apartments with great maitenance work. If something breaks, just give them a call. The manager's nice and the environment's friendly. There are flowers everywhere and a swimming pool with a four-dolphin fountain :O). The rent is reasonable and the water is free, unlike the townhouses in UA.

PROS: Friendly, nice, pleasant, inexpensive.
CONS: The surrounding neighborhood doesn't look as nice.

I've lived there for 3 years. Whenever we had problems, we would call the matentence and they would usually fix the problem in a day or so. The apartment manager, Greg, is also very nice! He is really deticated to taking care of the apartment complex, making sure it looks clean, beautiful and a safe environment for its tentants.
