COVID-19 has impacted everyone during 2020. SCC canceled all Spring 2020 leases in March claiming SCC was part of "on-campus" housing, and UMD was forcing students out. In Fall 2020, UMD allowed on-campus housing leases to be terminated, except for those at SCC (and CTY),See More >

I was late checking out by 3 hours. On the portal it says I was late by 4 hours and the $100 fee was nonnegotiable. Otherwise, this apartment complex is very expensive and you are paying very much for location. In DC, a similar apartmentSee More >

The apartments that South Campus Commons (SCC) offers are very outdated, especially compared to the other apartments on campus. The oven, dishwasher, and bathrooms all were dirty when I checked in. When cooking, the oven and stove tool nearly half an hour to heat up.See More >

It constantly flooded in our apartment. Maintenance is pretty responsive, but the problem has been going on for us for some time. The doors are absolutely superficial; noise leaks quite easily. They raised the rent on us (used to be $840, now is $865), soSee More >

The only good thing about these apartments is the location. Everything else is very poor. You are charged an unnecessary amount of money for what you are given. The management staff truly does not care about you and only wants your money. We have experiencedSee More >

Poor management with unnecessary fees/rules for move-in and move-out procedures. For the price, the apartments are not well taken care of. Otherwise great location and convenience.

This place is absolutely not worth the $865/month that you pay. They told me that they would do a room check to make sure that the room was in a decent condition and that it would be safe to move in. I had really lowSee More >

While SCC isn't the worst place you could live at UMD, I find it hard to believe that there's nothing better. The rent is crazy high. Right now it s $801 a month to live with 3 other people. That's $3,200 for an apartment worthSee More >

South Campus Commons can really suck. Their definition of cleaning an apartment before you move in is terrible. It is beyond noisy in the building I am in, and NEVER stops, not even on a Tuesday night at 2 AM. They try to help withSee More >

South Campus Commons sucks. You pay tons of money to live there and it's really not as great as people think. Yeah its in a good location, but so is most of the housing in the area. Noise complaints aren't dealt with well. From theSee More >

I had read some bad reviews, but I really enjoy living here. The place is kept relatively clean, even though residents continue to damage the building. Maintenance is responsive to requests. The only downside is that people do damage the place, butSee More >
