Known for luxurious amenities and Southern charm, The Cottages of College Station has been revered as Texas A&M's premium choice for off-campus student housing.

We take the Aggie spirit of tradition seriously...The Cottages of College Station is truly second to none!
The Cotrages offer all kinds of incentives to move in there but do NOT let that lure you to move there. They will do everything they can including make things up when you move out so they recoup those incentives on the back end.
I have noticed that the only people that take the time to write a review are the ones that either didn't get their way, failed to read the lease at the beginning, or complained about the phones. Having lived here going on three years I can confidently say that I would live here another year if I was not graduating. They do answer their phones, management works until 5pm to answer any in person questions, and they have always been very nice and understanding. Everyone that I know that lives here has minor problems like maintenance taking a little while to get to your apartment. All in all most of the people that are commenting the awful comments have never lived at a truly awful apartment complex like I did my first year of college.
So....it seems that the way this complex operates is that they add "move out" charges to your college student's bill...threaten that if you do not pay in 30 days they will turn you over to a collection agency....yet they do NOT respond to emails asking for clarification or actually have someone answer their phones so you can talk to anyone. What a disgraceful way to run your business. I don't have a problem paying something if I think it is correct but to throw an arbitrary amount on your student's bill and threaten collection yet NOT have the decency to answer emails...facebook messages or phones is DISGRACEFUL. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE
My son is due to move in any day and I have been calling for 2 weeks leaving messages and no one is answering the phone so now I have to take off of work and drive up there. Very non-customer service oriented.
Management lied to me and said the rent was at it's lowest it would go. BS, The longer you wait the lower it goes. Then I was told that the old management all got fired. The new manager politely told me I signed a contract and would not change the price. Forget about anyone answering the phone. I had to drive up there to straighten out all the problems they made. Be careful what they tell you and what you sign and be ready to drive up there if you have a problem. This is a nightmare and my kids havent even moved in yet.
