I will preface this review by saying that I was a graduate student during my stay here. I was not very interested in partying, I just wanted a quiet place to stay. I did not use the amenities at all. The good: The place was pretty… See More

Read the reviews and avoid this place. Reviews are accurate. Management was rude, defensive, and disrespectful. We were told we had a time slot that would guarantee us our 2 bedroom apartment. When they didn't have enough 2 bedrooms, they would tell you to mingle with… See More

The staff at this apartment was very rude!!! We were promised at spot, went to our leasing apartment, and were told that were no two bedroom apartments left. They were forcefully trying to have us meet these other two students who also didn't have a spot.… See More

Easy housing option for students. Fair deal with furniture and utilities included. But the apartments are outdated and things will break, which maintenance might fix if they want to. We have had multiple maintenance ticket requests marked "fixed" when they were not. Visitor parking lot is… See More

Staff was incredibly rude and never wanted to help students. Strictest rules of any apartment complex in Boone. No furniture allowed on porch. Pool rules way too strict. Increased my rent after living there 3 years. See More

I lived in a two-bedroom apartment at University Highlands for two years, and overall it was a good choice. I'm a budgeter, and I liked that utilities were included in the cost of the rent. Internet and cable TV are included too, and the internet works… See More

Pros: Rent is all-inclusive and the cheapest around here. Furnished. Washer/dryer in every unit. I did have a decent experience with maintenance at the beginning of the semester. Our dryer wasn't working properly, and it was replaced within two days, which was nice. The bus stop… See More

"Best deal/ BEST HASSLE in town" I will be thoroughly honest, yes it in convenient to have furniture but unless you're in a renovated building it is terrible quality & even renovated isn't comfortable enough to nap on. The carpet is awful, cigarette burns, general stains,… See More

Walls are thin, you can hear the neighbors especially in Bedroom B. Strict about what can be placed on balcony. Gym is on site but does not offer variety. VISITOR PARKING IS TOO SMALL. Plus neighboring apartment complexes use the parking lot making available spaces fewer.… See More
