My experience here has only been ok. There's nothing that I can say about university garden that makes it special. I feel like an extreme renovating of the tower building is in order. Some of the staff and management are not… Full Review ▶

I had to make an account just to post this review. I moved into University Gardens mainly because of price. The place is dirt cheap. I realized that I should not expect much especially considering the price but I was not… Full Review ▶

I stayed at University Gardens for 6 months because it was the most affordable housing in the area that was walking distance to campus and close to everything. After spending three years of jumping from apartment to apartment and having horrible… Full Review ▶

I moved to University Garden in 2009 after getting accepted to UGA, and spent a solid 2-3 days looking at every complex in the area to find something both affordable and nice. When my roommate at the time and I went… Full Review ▶

I moved here, in the winter, which was not so bad. The summer is hot as hell, inside the apartments and the hallways. Many people living here have no air at all, due to broken units (this is not central air-… Full Review ▶

The management team is lacking. We ended our lease early to follow a job and were fully aware that there were probably fees associated with that. We asked at least two different people if we owed anything and were told we… Full Review ▶

Pros: I would recommend if you are looking for a cheap price. Its close to campus and many shopping centers. Approximately 6 minutes away from downtown athens. Overall the location is great. The staff is friendly as well. They do allow… Full Review ▶

Although these apartments appear sketch at first, they are a good place to live. It is very cheap and close and convenient to UGA. The only negative things I have to say are the fact that I have sometimes seen roaches… Full Review ▶

University Garden Apartments is a great place to live. It's so close to school and everywhere else I need to go as a student. The library is right outside the community which is REALLY nice. I wouldn't listen to any of… Full Review ▶

I chose the apartment because it was cheap, and I loved the location. In the first month I witnessed drug deals going on every night, some right behind my building. I notified the police, but they said they can't do anything… Full Review ▶

Seeing as the semester is nearing its end and people will be looking for apartments, I find it sad that many will most likely skip University Gardens because of the poor feedback on this site. Here is my review: I am… Full Review ▶

Don't be fooled by cheap rent and a good location. There are always shady people smoking and drinking on all the steps around the building. If you are a good looking girl or have a good looking girlfriend, just prepare for… Full Review ▶

We moved in during a summer special for the pro-rated amount of 419$ per month. That's a really good price for the downtown area, and the apartments are even in a good walking distance from just about everything. We never had… Full Review ▶

A place to stay under $400 without sharing is hard to find. It may not be immaculate, but for the price, it is good. I rarely hear anything from my neighbors, who seem pretty nice from when I've talked to them.… Full Review ▶

I've lived here for three years. Recently theyve decided to lower the rent for new tenants... which has changed the population. I now longer feel as safe as I once did. This is an older complex, thus everything breaks. My fridge… Full Review ▶

You get what you pay for. Cheap Rent, but you really feel like they made up for the loss in maintenance and up-keep. Over all I wouldn't recommend living here for more then a few years. Full Review ▶

If you decided to live at University Garden, forget about a refund check for your initial payment (deposit). That's what happened to me. They told me that they would send me my check but I'm still waiting (since jan/06). So, find… Full Review ▶
