Prospective Resident · 2015
My review of HCR is based strictly on the application and waitlist process. Generally the office staff seems nice, the complex looks ok and it is in a convenient location. However, when I applied to live here my partner and I paid $70 in application fees and a $100 waitlist fee. The application process itself is also fairly time consuming. Unfortunately, all of this required before you know if HCR will have an apartment or townhome that will meet your needs. In our case while we waited something else in the area opened up, so we took it because HCR was still unsure when/if they would have something for us. The waitlist fee is non-refundable, and while $100 isn't the end of the world, in hindsight it is enough that I would have reconsidered. I found nicer options in Iowa City/Coralville that were able to be more transparent about availability before collecting funds and asking you to fill out such an extensive application. So, I guess the take away is that if you really want to live at HCR and you have some flexibility in move in dates and space requirements it may be worthwhile. However, if you are exploring different options, HCR's waitlist is unnecessarily time consuming and costly given uncertain availability.
