This is a Woodlouse in the Suborder Oniscidea, and according to BugGuide, they are found:  “wherever cool, dark, moist places are available to shelter woodlice from dryness and heat during the day.”  They are generally found outdoors, or in basements, so we are guessing you are in a ground floor apartment.
