From dorms to apartment living, Statesboro, Georgia has many housing options for students. However, finding the ideal place to live that is affordable and of great quality can be stressful. I’ve put together a list of (most of) the residences available in Statesboro.

Southern Downs

Southern Downs’ clubhouse is 24 hours which is perfect if you want to play pool with your friends at 2 a.m. or watch television all night.

Floor Plans: Prices may vary

  • 2 Bedroom/2 Bathroom: $529
  • 2 Bedroom/2 ½ Bathroom: $549
  • 3 Bedroom/2 Bathroom: $449
  • 4 Bedroom/2 Bathroom: $349
  • Amenities (May differ with floorplan): Washer & Dryer, walk-in closets, etc

 

Savannah Bell, a junior anthropology major, said, “Southern Downs is a nice place to live, and the pool is super nice. The only thing is that the apartments are a little small, and there’s not a whole lot of storage space. Other than that, it’s a great place for the rent price.”

Axis

Don’t worry about buying a parking pass on campus because Axis is located on Georgia Southern’s bus route. You can even take a dip in the hot tub before going to class.

Floor Plans: Prices may vary

  • 2 Bedroom/2 Bathroom: $525
  • 3 Bedroom/3 Bathroom: $440
  • 4 Bedroom/4 Bathroom: $400

Amenities (May differ with floor plan):  Fully furnished, washer & dryer, internet, cable (HBO & Cinemax included), community amenities, etc.

Russell Land, a junior mathematics major, said, “Some people are turned off by Axis from their crime in the past, but I think it is one of the safest places to live near campus. It is a gated community with a security guard. It is now only exclusive to students, and it is a ten minute walk to any building on campus. It is also close to the blue bus route. For the price, it has got to be the best value in Statesboro. Most places like Hamptons, Aspen, etc. are not worth the price.”
