Love the new renovations! The staff is super friendly and responsive. Great location, pet friendly, and safe. Would highly recommend to students because of the free transportation to and from campus that runs all day long.

University Downs is a good place to live even though the apartments are a little old. Recently, renovations have been ongoing, and it has been a very stressful process. Management should be more organized and should communicate better with their residents. The best part about University… See More

Easy lease and move-in processes. The staff is very friendly, people are quiet and the community is nice. Apartments are cozy and clean, anything you request for service will be dealt with immediately.

Very friendly office staff, and great amenities. Noise from upstairs neighbors isn't too bad unless they throw a party, but security personnel are very responsive to noise complaints. I feel very safe on this property and I am satisfied overall. Upkeep could be slightly better.

This property is very rundown compared to the "luxe" amenities sold on their website. Their individual leases are appealing, but ultimately land you with a complete stranger living in your apartment. Their roommate matching service is very very poor and in need of development. The community… See More
