Renters Beware....I would never again live at the Globe Apartments, the staff is rude and judgmental. The maintenance staff did not fix or repair what needed to be fixed. We lived there for several years, and in the last year, it has declined rapidly. The garbage… See More

For a young college community the building is very quiet. New construction all around the neighborhood should add many more community options going forward. So far, many options in walking distance and very easy access to freeways for extended travel.

An affordable apartment complex in the downtown area. Staff are courteous and helpful, and the building is safe and features clean apartments with high ceilings and an urban style. The fitness center could, however, use an update. Overall it is a good place to live.
