If I could give 0 stars I would. This is the absolute worst apartment complex. I toured the place before I moved in and the apartment they show is nothing like what you end up with. Don't let the model apartment… Full Review ▶

Do not be fooled by the clubhouse and pool area. Once you get beyond that it goes downhill from there. I have gotten my mailbox broken into. Several of the boxes are broken into. The maint of the apartments are not… Full Review ▶

I would not recommend University Village Apartments. Upon signing a lease, they promised amenities (including fitness center, movie room, computer lab, clubhouse), which were not completed even 6 months later! Because the management at University Village was in charge of providing… Full Review ▶

Horrible apartment complex. The apartments in themselves are not very well kept, dirty carpet, sorry ventilation and horrible bathrooms...looks like something out of a run-down 70's apartment complex.
