The building is old and falling apart. The AC units are over 60 yrs old and original to the building. They produce a weird smell when turned on. There is little temperature control in the units as well. There is no thermostat in my unit.… See More >

              I haven't lived there long enough to really give a fair assessment. I do think that the apartment needs to make tenants that graduate move out sooner so the staff has more time to clean and fix up the apartments because they were dirty and… See More >

                  This community is sufficient as a place to live while going to school. While there are necessities for an apartment, the sizes of the apartments are quite small for the heavy price tag associated. Utilities are included in the monthly rent, but this community efficiently… See More >

                      It's good, but I wish there was cable privided. I feel like that should be required. I love the 24/7 gym because I like to workout in the morning and not seeing many people there is really nice. Overall, it's good!

                            The people in this building are very kind, and whenever you need help they'll be there, they do it fast and professional. I like it here because it's a very clean environment and the staff and workers are amazing people.

                              I love it, the maintenance is prompt and efficient, the overall communication from the app to the front desk makes daily life easy. Definitely a great space for Uni students that still accommodates and supplies benefits!
