Pretty close to campus. Back staircases need to be replaced. General maintenance is not good. Never get your security deposit back. Office staff is no customer friendly at all. Updating of units needed. See More

They also lie to you about how much they are sending in your security deposit refund. (If you're lucky enough to not owe them.). We were charged a pet fee, for pets we DIDN'T have!
