Do not live in college towers apartments!!! Yes it's cheap and located right next to campus but these conveniences are not worth it. The elevators never worked while we lived there and we were repeatedly told that they were going to… Full Review ▶

One of the most unsanitary places you can live. This complex is the cheapest place you can live in Northeast Ohio but it is no way worth it. You can hear mice above the ceilings at night. There are bats in… Full Review ▶
