I moved into a studio apartment here and it has been nothing but amazing! Having an in-unit washer/dryer is my favorite aspect and there is plenty of cabinet space for extra storage. I also love the pet walking area for my dog. Great community complex!

I normally don’t write reviews but felt compelled because of the great experience I’ve had with the Iconic team. Over the course of the year that I lived there, I required assistance from the housing office on a few occasions, and every time they were able to help answer my questions and resolve any issues I had.

It is really nice living here at Iconic amongst some of my friends. I’ve met a lot of great people here and would definitely recommend Iconic to everyone. The staff here is very helpful and attentive to all of my concerns and needs.


Louie M

Honestly, it’s a great place to stay if you are looking for housing next to SDSU. Compared to its competitors that are a mile or more away. You have the trolley right across which takes you into state and it’s way better than a bus like other places that offer.
