DO NOT RENT FROM HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ESPECIALLY IF YOU WORK AT UMASS You know its one thing to have incredibly rude and noisy neighbors, utilities/amenities that never work and break easily, construction going on at all hours of the day for 4 weeks straight, parking spots taken away for said construction, and more, but it's another to have to worry about parking your car at your apt complex and getting paint spilled on it THEN having to be personally responsible for repairs. This place was not worth what we paid in time, money, stress and frustration. I would look elsewhere. Just unacceptable. **note: any oncoming resident physicians looking to live near by umass, be prepared for noises at all hours of the day and night. As renters who have mixed schedules including some night shifts, it was nearly impossible to get a full nights sleep here. Just FYI And to the review that said the noises are normal/common, its not. We have previously lived in complexes in shrewsbury and Worcester without problems like these: walls literally vibrating/shaking, screaming children past 12am, strange music all the time and dogs barking through the evening.
I am a little confused reading through all of these reviews of Princeton Properties. I lived at Princeton Place for a little over a year and want to address some of the concerns brought up by previous reviewers Dumpster Watchman: Yes, a man does sit in his car by the dumpsters. I, too, was creeped out by this in the beginning; however, I asked about him at the office and discovered that he monitors the trash. Recently, he hasn't been watching the trash as often, probably due to a previous comment. Since then I have seen the trash pile up two-three times during the week and management need to call for additional pickup. It is clear to me that he helps cut down on people illegally dumping their trash at our dumpsters. Indian population: Yes, there is a majority population of Indian families. This is no surprise due to the overall Indian population of Worcester/Shrewsbury, and our proximity to the hospitals nearby. It sounds like the previous reviewer is talking about how the cultural norms of these families are different than his/her own - which sounds like xenophobia, or even racism. Have a little tolerance for that which is unfamiliar around you. Price: Yes, Princeton Place is expensive. They do not advertise themselves as low-income or affordable housing, nor do they participate in rate-fixing. The price of rent includes a nice patio, well-kept grounds, swimming pool, playground, fitness center, tennis court, and assortment of grilling areas. There is also a dog park and loads of open parking. I decided to pay a premium for all of these amenities and the overall safety of the complex. Also, of course the rent is raised every year, have you seen the awful economy? Privacy / Noise: A previous reviewer noted that they frequently heard noise from the hallways and ceilings/floors. This is something that I sometimes have a complaint about as well, but this is a problem you will see anywhere. I chose to live here due to the high population of families, because areas with families have a safer atmosphere than other communities. Families are loud. This is the tradeoff. In closing, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time living at PP. I have always found management very helpful and knowledgeable, and have taken to time to meet the residents. Maintenance responds to requests quickly, rent is easily paid online, and the complex is safe. To me, this is a great place to live!

I did not have a pleasant experience attempting to set up a lease with this company. They were supposed to be affiliated with UMass, however, their specials and prices were not as advertised. They also refused to honor a special promo offered through my program. I found the leasing agent extremely terse and unhelpful. There are many other places to rent from. This place is mediocre at best and significantly overpriced.
