Smallwood is located in a convenient part of downtown Bloomington which allows ease of access to food and nightlife. The staff is always friendly and accommodating, but having to retrieve your guests from downstairs is inconvenient.

Dear Valued Resident, As this is an anonymous review, I am unable to address your concerns specifically. I would like the opportunity to explain however, the possible reasons why you would receive a bill after move-out from our community. Your security deposits is used to cover the expenses of any repairs or damages to the premise greater than normal "wear and tear." If that deposit does not cover the cost in damages you could receive an additional bill so we may recover costs of such damages. Examples of these damages could include stains or heavy wear to carpet, leaving trash or other items in the apartment at move-out, leaving holes or other damage to walls. If the apartment is left in dirty condition at move-out where it is unhealthy for new residents to move-in, we can deduct for the cost of making it habitable again for the next residents in the apartment. We provide every resident an itemized list of deductions within 45 days after their end lease date to their forwarding or home address on file. Should you find that non of the above scenarios applies to your situation, or if you are requesting additional information or explanation of charges please do not hesitate to contact me directly so I can best assist and discuss this directly. You many contact me at [email protected] or by phone 812-331-8500; and I will return your call or e-mail as quickly as possible. Sincerely, Whitney Kincaid, Community Manager

Located in the heart of downtown Bloomington. Smallwood is close to the IU Bloomington Campus.

Smallwood is close to all of the urban nightlife - but yet just blocks away from campus.
