Great Location

The building is filthy dirty. They don’t show you that in the model home. Ask to see the parking garage and you’ll see how discussing the place is. The apartment was really dirty and the carpet was dirty and loose.… See More>

    Potentially great place ruined by lack of upkeep

    Do not live here. Great location/price combination that is ruined by horrible management and building upkeep. The elevator to one of the buildings has been broken for ~3 months, door handles in common areas are missing, and not to mention the horrible smell in the… See More>

        Apartment was fine. Management company and high staff turnover made for book keeping errors, late fees and lack of accountability when asked to remedy the situation. Exploring options recoup fees via small claims court

            Maintenance was always really responsive! Location was good, close to lots of shops and restaurants! Campus was pretty close & the sun link was right down the street. Staff was really good about COVID and keeping amenities open.

                                      Extremely dirty, staff will show you a demo apartment but will not take you into the actual facility. Urine in the hallways, Rancid smell in the parking garage... They do not clean up and are one of the worst apartment complexes in Tucson.

                                        We are sorry to hear about your less than ideal experience. In order to protect the privacy and homes of our residents, we are unable to show actual apartments, which is why we show any prospective residents the model unit. We try to explain the differences between each floor plan during the tour, but they do vary slightly depending on the location. In regards to the cleanliness of the common areas, we do feel that our standards could be improved. We are currently working on implementing some adjustments to better keep up with this issue, so you should see significant positive results in the next couple of weeks. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention and as always, if there is an immediate issue that needs to be addressed, please don't hesitate to reach out to our staff. Thank you very much for your feedback.

                                            Overall, for university student housing the apartments and amenities are awesome. The recreational room is perfect for a quick work out, the pool is great for taking a break and they even provide study rooms as well. I've lived at the District this past year… See More>

                                              The district is a pretty good location for the most part. If you'd like to live in a more peaceful location I would not recommend it because the apartment is filled with college students and it gets pretty noisy. Aside from that everything is pretty… See More>

                                                The district on 5th is a good apartment and I would recommend it to friends. The location is close to campus but not right on campus. The staff is fast and effective. The apartments are small for the price but overall it's a good place… See More>

                                                  The apartment is pretty good considering other options, but the noise level can be frustrating at times (although security is very quick to handle it). The quality of the furniture and appliances in the kitchen aren't phenomenal for the price you pay, but maintenance usually… See More>
