If you are a rich, bratty kid attending college for "fun" and have incredibly low standards for a place of residence, this place is for you! Otherwise, stay FAR FAR AWAY! The place is a filthy, greedy corporation out to leech… Full Review ▶

University Village at Sweethome is not a good place to stay, I started UB in 2010 and I was there only for an academic year. Which is a lease for 2010-2011. After moving back home I attended two different universities, and… Full Review ▶

I absolutely agree with the previous person here and STRONGLY DISCOURAGE people from living at this place. This is kind of a "luxury housing", where you are charged pretty high money for the unit, but in fact you are not provided… Full Review ▶

I strongly discourage anyone from living here, especially graduate students. Live here at your own risk, it's your grade. - Very noisy from undergrads partying - Very dangerous parking lot since there are few traffic controls people speed around turns. -… Full Review ▶

Office staff is non-responsive and couldn't care less about the students. Sent threatening emails and then did not reply to questions. Office staff never lets you speak to anyone that can make a decision. Rooming near the front door on the… Full Review ▶

Sweethome is an okay place in general, decent rooms and having a private bathroom in a shared apartment is nice. Decently furnished, not very pretty (more like cheap and boring), but what else can you expect from a student apartment. The… Full Review ▶

The apartment living space is fine, though the bedrooms feel cramped. The closet space plus the bathroom space (which are great sizes themselves) are approximately the same square footage as the bedroom. The utilities are adequate, they work, but for those… Full Review ▶

Way overpriced, fire alarms ARE VERY VERY LOUD, small living space, gets dirty easily.. Maintenance staff is punctual but do a half-assed job, and the staff is run by inexperienced students themselves. Not worth $900/mo. Full Review ▶
