I love the internment that my apartment is in, but the walls are very thin so I can hear a lot of things, even if is just my neighbor next door laughing. Everything else is great and I would recommend.

The manager, Tim, is difficult to work with and is quick to blame issues on his residents. He's not easy going and won't miss dealing with him when I move out. Probably the #1 reason me and the people I know dislike UP.
