It's the blind leading the blind here. Even the general manager just graduated USF about 6 months ago. Everyone in the office is "nice", but they don't manage anything. There is no management. If your roommate is violating policy, or you… Full Review ▶

DO.NOT.SIGN.HERE. The management here is the least helpful I have ever seen, and the maintenance, incompetent. On50 may be close to USF campus and have close proximity to public transportation all for a reasonable cost, but don't be fooled. I have… Full Review ▶

I have lived at On50 for three years, if it wasn't so well located I would have moved out a long time ago. Maintenance workers are great, friendly and trustworthy. However, the people who work in the office are fake and… Full Review ▶

This place absolutely is absolutely terrible. The only good thing is it's proximity to campus and that has nothing to do with the apartments themselves. The apartments have a two hundred dollar non-refundable deposit (which I don't know what it goes… Full Review ▶

Do.Not.Live.Here. I moved from out of state thinking that this would be a great apartment for the price, especially after seeing the model, and it ended up being a complex from hell. When I moved in, there were roaches that took… Full Review ▶

If you're not living in the large B-bedroom - you're paying too much. The Large B-bedroom is GIGANTIC and I love it except for the fact that it's right by the pool where you can hear EVERYTHING. Noise is an extreme… Full Review ▶

ON50 has unsafe parking, dirty unkept grounds, poor to near condemnation construction, shoddy maintenance, apathetic & rude staff. UPON move-in: shower tiles falling off from water damage, apt. never cleaned prior to move-in - obvious from the spider webs hanging from… Full Review ▶

Parking: The parking here is cramped, so it becomes fairly difficult to drive through the complex. There are plenty of resident parking spot, but guest parking is difficult to find, especially on the weekends. Visitors usually have to park on campus… Full Review ▶

When moving in, ensure you annotate the move damage report with everything wrong in the apartment. Look the apartment over closely and jot down every dent, ding, and problem; look at the walls, the carpet, the furniture, the doors, etc. During… Full Review ▶

The management is absolutely wonderful. That said, don't ever expect a good night's sleep. Parties will keep you awake until 6am, and then the maintenance crew will wake you up banging on who-knows-what and yelling at 8am (10am if you're lucky).… Full Review ▶

One of the cheapest places around (the cheapest being JC) and basically: you get what you pay for. The location makes up for any shortcomings as you can easily walk/bike/take the bus to class in minimal time. Full Review ▶
