I've been living at this apartment for 3-4 years now. The management has always been nice to me, but then again I am a very social person. It is true that this apartment has a roach problem as I live on… Full Review ▶

The place is horrible! I dealt with two of the employees. Christina was very fake. She pretended that my roomates were "super nice" when they were extremely rude and dirty. Freddy told me the complex is quiet and there are no… Full Review ▶

What an awful apartment complex. Buildings are falling apart and are not aesthetic at all (and everything is old and cheap). Horrible insect infestation as well, just look at my picture. DON'T BE FOOLED BY THEIR TOUR ROOM, OTHER ROOMS ARE… Full Review ▶

If you're thinking about living here, DON'T DO IT. OH MY DEAR GOD, DON'T DO IT. I'm warning you. There are roaches everywhere, and by everywhere I mean everywhere. We've had our apartment sprayed every month and I've woken up with… Full Review ▶

ROACHES. Everywhere. Spiders are a huge problem too. This is a true infestation. The pest control in place is not sufficient. Rude staff. Unsafe neighborhood. "Panic button" never worked despite multiple work orders. Full Review ▶

The apartment complex is very nice. The staff was amazing. I would recommended this apartment to anyone. The bus stop is within a few steps of the buildings. In addition, the clubhouse is very nice. Full Review ▶

42 North, one of the best places to live. The residents are friendly,many of the residents I have run into have been very nice. It's slightly further away from campus which keeps it quiet. I have had no problems with noise… Full Review ▶

Pretty nice inside apartments. Every room has it's own bathroom. Nice sized common room. Kitchen could be bigger. Good sized rooms. Great location, only a mile away from USF and the Bullrunner rides right in front of the apartment complex. Full Review ▶

Not to bad for a college place. I'm not at home much as I'm either working or at school. We have roaches every now and then, but I'm from here and one every once in a while is typical. pest control… Full Review ▶

The management is two faced. They are aware of an issue with our A/C which is causing us to go over, and they are still charging us for the overage. They pretend to fix issues but really just leave them broken.… Full Review ▶

I picked 42 North because I thought the model was really unique compared to most student living places. I liked that the furniture wasn't totally typical. HOWEVER, once I moved in, none of the furniture was the same as the model… Full Review ▶

As you may or may not know, this place is one of those "dorm-like" apartments. Meaning kitchen and living room space is shared. While that in itself is not a bad thing. Assuming you have respectful roommates. But, as far as… Full Review ▶

Unless under the threat of legal action, management doesn't lift a finger to get anything done. Whether it's problems with other tenants, furniture, or grounds maintenance. A resident was stabbed to death in his apartment right below me. So safety.. non-existant.… Full Review ▶
