My lease started July 17th. Did I move in that day? NO. When I went into my new home to fill out the move in inspection I found the house was not "Move in ready" like Gina (The Property Manager) said.… Full Review ▶


Sonora Canyon apartment lies by omission. Whatever it takes to get you to sign the lease. Once they have you... if you try to leave they will get you with hidden fees... those "read the fine print" fees. I have a… Full Review ▶

The apartments are clean, spacious, and very nice. The only problem is that within the neighborhood we have bad people. On October of last year, a woman was shot. If you don t believe me, take a look at the following… Full Review ▶

Illegals everywhere, cops must be called to the pool NIGHTLY. Home invasions and robbery happen quite often, not to mention at LEAST 2 cars a month are either broken into or stolen. I have talked to many residents and have heard… Full Review ▶

Prospective Resident

I am currently living in Oakland and have since 2007. Now if anyone here is familiar with Oakland, please keep that in mind as far as what I would already know about what is "unsafe" and "ghetto". haha I am looking… Full Review ▶


The staff is fake friendly, when they leave at night, every mexican that knows someone living there goes in the pool, cops there all hours, illegal 45yr male living there that was convicted for child molesting, i wouldnt live there with… Full Review ▶

I am surprised to be reading the reviews. I have lived there for almost 2 years and never had a problem with anybody. It is a quiet place to live, there have been times when I forgot to lock my door… Full Review ▶


You'd be luckier living on the streets than coming here. The apartment manager is a joke. Extremely rude and unwilling to help when we had a problem with the neighbors. They seem to allow noise at all hours of the night… Full Review ▶


While I was in a serious crunch, University Green was able to provide move in breaks that allowed me to save money over other apartments. While the place was new at the time, the problems came more from the surrounding neighborhood… Full Review ▶


garbage...keep looking or you will be sorry Full Review ▶


Wow, I cant believe the reveiws in here. I have a been a tenant going on my second lease here and Ive never had to call the Maintenace staff. I understand there are about 400 homes in this complex and stuff… Full Review ▶


Unless you feel like living in a crime ridden neighborhood with the ghetto bird flying over your head 3 times a night. Not to mention to the paper thin windows and walls so you hear everything going on outside and can… Full Review ▶


Where we first moved to the University green apartment we really liked them. However once we started living here we really don't like it. It is not so much the community as much as the extremely rude apartment managers. They never… Full Review ▶


I have lived here for almost a year, and will not renew my lease. The only good thing about this place is the parking. The windows are so thin, it sounds as if you are sleeping in traffic, my motorcycle was… Full Review ▶


I moved to this apartment in January of 2006 and was ecstatic to move out a year later. Although the apartment was considered "renovated", this place was a joke. The water pipes broke in the upper unit and flooded my lower… Full Review ▶


I lived at University Green for a year, and it was my first time in Mesa. I have to say that after moving out I miss it a lot. It takes time to get used to the Mesa area if your… Full Review ▶


They're friendly when you're looking, but unreasonable when you're renting. There are constant repairs going on with the water system, so expect to go without water often. Don't be surprised if you end up without hot water for days. As long… Full Review ▶


This place is seriously the most worst community I have ever lived in my entire life!!!! Our neighbors are extremely noisy and and they party and do drugs all the time. I heard a drug deal going on right outside my… Full Review ▶


I moved in here because I was living in a hotel with half my belongings desperate for an apartment, and this was the best I had come up with after searching for two days. I don't smoke but anytime I have… Full Review ▶


Maintenance was good, as long as they don't do any damage to the apartment trying to fix it. We had one guy break the water line to the washer and that was a flood. Which only added to the overall cave-like… Full Review ▶


The only big problem I´ve had is with auto security. Within two weeks of living there my car´s cd player was stolen, but I think that is actually more common at place that is pretty nice than at a dump apartment.… Full Review ▶


The staff doesn´t really seem to care, but it´s just going down hill. I realize they can´t help everything residents can do, but they can do something about it! Just not the place I want to live! Cars broken into all… Full Review ▶


OK but pricey for the area Full Review ▶
