Hillcrest has recently switched to Mediacom. I don't really understand why when they obviously have plenty of cash flow coming in. I mean, the size of the place is huge and I never have anywhere to park when I come home… Full Review ▶

Lived at Hillcrest for 2.5 years now. The first 2 years were great. They built the new clubhouse and pool which is very convenient. Then Hillcrest decided to get cheap on the residents. The week that UNI students returned, Hillcrest decided… Full Review ▶

I have lived at Hillcrest for almost a year now. The only small complaint I would have is that I can tell when my neighbors boyfriend is in town for the weekend. I cannot hear anything from my neighbors beside me,… Full Review ▶

Hillcrest should be used as a last resort. University Mills has a bad rep and I would still place it higher. At least its close enough to walk to campus and it generally has better security and noise control. Hillcrest on… Full Review ▶

This is the second time I have lived here, the first was in the 2010-2011 school year. I can't say much about walking to school as I take online classes through Kirkwood, but it's nice to be a little outside the… Full Review ▶

Only been here a few weeks and am disappointed. Moved here after living in University Mills because it was cheaper, but now I realize it is not worth the money saved. The complex is loud and they do nothing to reinforce… Full Review ▶

Hillcrest is a great way to meet new people and enjoy your college experience without the small quarters of the dorms. The apartments themselves are very nice for only paying $345 a month! Kitchens and bathrooms are big. It gets loud… Full Review ▶

Hillcrest is a great place for college students. They always have special events like cookouts for homecoming, special finals week activities, or holidays prizes. Its the perfect mix between between dorm life and being out on your own. Its still close… Full Review ▶

The management is laughable - they've lost my rent twice. The washer/dryer, dishwasher, toilets and doors are of the lowest quality. There are constantly parties. There are often fights in the parking lots, that occasionally lead to police involvement. Hillcrest has… Full Review ▶

Don't live there unless you want to party 24/7. We learned the hard way as our daughter complained to the management and nothing was done. All of the girls were underage and still the management did nothing. A few times she… Full Review ▶

This store was on Waterloo Courier on 10/25/10. I just think that everyone thinking of moving in should be aware. The management is very poor; this is a perfect example of how they don't know who to look out for warning… Full Review ▶

Take it from me; this place is very miss-leading. 80% of what they tell you is lies. They just tell you what you want to hear, until they get you locked into a lease. The female manager is very nice to… Full Review ▶
