About Phoenix

Phoenix has short, mild winters and on average 330 days of sunshine each year—making it the perfect hot spot for students to find a range of apartment complexes, many with pools! Known as the Valley of the Sun, Phoenix is located in Maricopa County and is the most populous state capital in the United States.


Phoenix has a subtropical desert climate and was original known for growing cotton and citrus, but, after WWII, the city has experienced a population growth and a rise of high tech industries, with ample student housing for all income levels.


As students settle into their short-term housing, they may see some of Phoenix’s rare wildlife, such as desert tortoises, Gila monsters, bald eagles, coyotes, falcons, and roadrunners. Students will also enjoy Phoenix’s landscape, which is dotted with unusual species of cactus and various types of palm trees and agaves.


Other Phoenix highlights include taking a trip from a nearby apartment complex to a fun and exciting Phoenix Suns, Arizona Cardinals, or Arizona Diamondbacks game. Another Phoenix standout is the food! Student housing is often adjacent to some of Phoenix’s most popular Mexican restaurants as well as Indian, Spanish, and Brazilian options.


There are several fashionable apartment complexes near Phoenix’s thriving arts scene! Phoenix has several must-see performing arts venues such as The Phoenix Symphony Hall, home to the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra and the Arizona Opera, as well as the Orpheum Theatre. Students can also enjoy other cultural opportunities in Phoenix, such as the many museums located throughout the city, including the Phoenix Art Museum, Arizona Capitol Museum, and Musical Instrument Museum.


Most notably, Phoenix boasts amazing educational opportunities, such as several branches of Arizona State University (whose main campus is in Tempe). Student housing is located near ASU West Campus, ASU Downtown Campus, and Mesa (ASU Polytechnic Campus). There is also a branch of the University of Arizona College of Medicine and a satellite campus of Northern Arizona University. Additionally, students can enjoy apartment living near the Maricopa County Community College District, such as Phoenix College. Private institutions, including Grand Canyon University and Arizona Christian University also feature nearby student housing in Phoenix. The nation’s largest for-profit university, The University of Phoenix, is also located within the city limits.

By: Joe smith on July 8, 2015
Moving into Crystal Creek apartments was one of the worst decisions I ever made. The staff literally NEVER answers the phone, the security gates do not work, appliances and maintenance were a joke, and upon move out, Crystal Creek charged me an insane amount, including $150.00 for a painting fee and another $75.00 for a cleaning fee, despite the fact that I left the apartment in immaculate condition. In my past 13 years of renting, have NEVER ONCE lost a deposit until I lived at Crystal Creek. And when I spoke with the Apartment Manager (calmly and professionally might I add) not only were the charges not explained to me, but she upped the cost!! I would never recommend renting at Crystal Creek.
