The place is terrible! I honestly think that the positive reviews are from staff, because the ones that actually tell the truth consist of the SAME EXACT REOCCURRING PROBLEMS!!! Management is absolutely terrible!! I am from out of state and I… Full Review ▶


My time here at The Commons has been nothing short of fantastic!! It is unfortunate to read so many reviews that are misleading. When you sign your lease the staff reads everything to you so you know ahead of time exactly… Full Review ▶


After dealing with a domestic violence incident today in the commons, honestly can say I've never seen a worse group of managers and staff. I will never live there again. Full Review ▶


I am a current resident here and after reading some of these reviews, I am shocked to see the low ratings! I have lived here for three years and never had a problem! You know before you move in how much… Full Review ▶


DO NOT LIVE HERE! This apartment complex is wonderful to live in for the first couple months - very accomodating and friendly, however once you resign a lease the office and staff could care less about you. Maintenance is never completed… Full Review ▶


Awful. Parking costs $30 extra a month. Decided I didn't need my car for the summer and tried to take off the EXTRA fee of $30 to save some money but they wouldn't let me. Had my mom come and help… Full Review ▶


Many hidden charges in lease, they take advantage of college students. You pay for the whole month of August, yet can't move in until the 17th., but the never tell you that when signing papers. Buyer beware Full Review ▶


To be honest, I hadn't heard of this site until just the other day and I must say that I was shocked to see the reviews for this place. Let me start by saying that this is the third place I… Full Review ▶


Pros: Furnished apartments. Free water/heat. Washer/dryer in unit. Community pool and exercise center. Cons: Higher rent. Far away from campus. Almost all of the stairs and some hallways are very dirty, disgusting. Almost guaranteed no guest parking (parking garage for paid… Full Review ▶


Like all apts none are perfect! But if you are nice & persistent with staff you will be fine. I have lived her 2 years & I LOVE the location (can ride cabs bus). I will admit that the apts are… Full Review ▶


the only reason i stayed here for 2 miserable years is because the apts are fully furnished and i ended up with a new roommate my 2nd year. this place is absolute trash. it was disguistingly filthy upon move in both… Full Review ▶


Every bad review on here is spot on. This place seemed awesome from the website and the tour, but then chaos begins. I moved in and the apartment was not even CLEANED...so when I told them they had 3 employees come… Full Review ▶


The office crew are courteous but ineffective. They take no responsibility, would rather play the blame game. All packages delivered disappeared. There is a record they were signed for(FedEx, USPS...) but NO ONE KNOWS ANYTHING! Full Review ▶


My daughter lived here for the fall 2009 to spring 2010 school year at OSU. As a parent, safety should be your top priority. She felt safe here. She chose her own room mates and was deceived as the year progressed.… Full Review ▶


The walls are made of paper, and appliances are cheapest money can buy. The pool is only usable for a few months and the hot tub is typically green from people dumping and leaving things in it. The garage has no… Full Review ▶


We had bed bugs from the day we moved in for the entire first quarter, which may finally be gone after countless times washing everything we own and waiting hours for people to come. Maintenance was really nice and rather prompt,… Full Review ▶


I would not reccomend living here at all. They place looks great when you first tour it and it seemed like a great first appartment for the first year out fo the dorms. The place is so expensive for what you… Full Review ▶


Last year when I was living in the dorms this place looked amazing--I mean, a pool with a hot tub, a work out facility, movie theater, washer and dryer, fully furnished apartments, AND A PARKING GARAGE!! When I actually moved in,… Full Review ▶


I have been living here for two years now and when I first moved here I was coming right from the dorms and I thought this place was the best. But when u moved in that's a different story. The rent… Full Review ▶


Do yourself a favor and do not move here. Don't be fooled by being able to "walk to the bus stop." Don't be fooled by how nice the model room looks, the apartment you will get has no chance of looking… Full Review ▶


Place wasn't all too bad. The actual apartment was really nice. There were just a lot of rich kids that filled the surrounding rooms. They thought the hallways were their trash can and the pool was their .... (you know). The… Full Review ▶


While the individual apartments are nice, the building itself is always messy, the halls and balconies have trash sitting on then, paint is splattered all over the walls and floors from a poor paint job, carpeting is stained, VERY noisy. People… Full Review ▶


since I didn't have a roommate they were very good at picking out someone for me
but the problems are the maintenance is so poor..the washer and dryer don't work well and the hallways are dirty..there has been stuff laying in the… Full Review ▶
