The U Athens is a great place to live if you're trying to save money. The buses that stop here are extremely convenient for class and/or work on campus or if you like to go downtown. It's nice having your own bedroom and internet, but the… See More

It's been very inconsistent. Student staff has always been great in the office. The rent is really cheap and the apartments are pretty nice but very used and outdated. A lot of the exterior of the complex is run down and a lot of the lights… See More

My experience has been enjoyable but not ideal. I love the office staff because they seem to genuinely care about us and get to know us on a more personal level but the property itself is deteriorating. If nothing changes, then I will not renew

There is always a lot of noise outside the apartments, and there are constant maintenance issues with the apartments. The quality of the apartments is definitely unsatisfactory. However, there are plenty of amenities that are well-tended to.

I get living on a budget, but don't move here. I moved here because I got into my major when I didn't expect it and it was a last minute option. Regret it completely. Mold everywhere. Furniture isn't what they said. Goodwill has better quality.

I immediately moved to The U Athens after leaving my college dorm. Needless to say, I've been very pleased thus far. The convenience of everything being included and only one payment each month makes the transition much easier. I love it here!
