I'm a grad student and have lived at Fairview Apartments for about 1.5 years so far and it's been an absolutely excellent place to live. Cannot say enough good things about this apartment building and the people who manage it.

The location is perfect and so convenient: 10-15 minute flat walk to Cornell campus for class, 10 minute walk to Collegetown and CTB, quick 2-minute drive or 15 minute walk to East Hill Plaza for groceries, 20 minute walk downtown to the Commons, and on the edge of a quiet, safe residential neighborhood that's nice for running in. It's pretty much central to everything and there is a bus stop right outside of the building.

I did my research, and from a price standpoint, a 1-bedroom in Fairview is about $300-400 cheaper than comparable options in other buildings in the area, so it's an incredible deal. All utilities (gas, heat, water, electricity, internet) are included in the monthly rent, which is amazing. Exercise equipment on site and laundry in the basement. Apartments are large and spacious, with lots of natural light, and you can request to have them furnished for a very small upcharge.

The best part is the staff, particularly the lovely, warm people in the front office--Mi Jin and Gabriela are amazing! They take the time to get to know tenants and are incredibly professional and responsive to their needs. The occasional maintenance issue I've reported has been fixed on the same day, usually within an hour. All the staff have been a delight to interact with and get to know, and they help make Fairview such a great place to live.

I had a good time living here for one year. It is 10 minute walk to the ag quad, has a bus station right outside, and the maintenance services come quickly after requests. Our townhouse is spacious and has its own washing machine and dryer, which is really convenient. Perfect spot for my first year which provide a fun and friendly environment.

My first review on google. Lived in the highrise building for the last two years. I highly recommend fairview apartment!
Decent price with really convenient commute. 10 minutes to CTB, 15 minutes to Philips Hall. Bus stop right outside the apartment but u dont really need it cuz Uber. Not a walking distance to PC fresh geocery(at least I dont feel like spend an hour walking).
The particular studio I lived is in excellent shape. Air-conditioned and heated. It's also carpeted. But as I know not every unit is carpeted. Did I mention spacious? Walk-in closet and a small storage room. Laundry is in the basement. There are like six or eight washer(cant really remember) and six dryer.
The best part is their staffs. Ronelle is always nice and kind. And, if you need help, just talk to her. Their other staffs are always busy maintaining. As for bad appliances and so, it's usually a one-day fix. In winter, they clean snow more often than the apts my friends stayed. Last winter, I had to help my friend shovel his car out. Actually, they not only maintain but also renew.
For parking extra fee is required. There are also sheltered parking spaces if you need it. It's acceptable cuz the parking around Cornell is very tight.


This is a wonderful place to live. I have lived here for a year and I find this is the wonderful place I’m looking for. The location is perfect for students in Cornell, not too far from class, and the building is in good condition.
The managers are helpful and they can solve all problems, they’re very nice people and they made the apartment perfect
