Great Service and very nice, bright apartments but the lease is deceiving. Even thought I wanted a 12 month lease they would only due 13 1/2 because of some stupid policy about charging a full month after the 31st. It really aggrevated me. See More

Parc at University Tower Apartments Manager

04/28/2016

We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay here at the Parc! It's always great to hear the positive feedback from our past residents. We are also very glad that you brought up the additional fees that were present back then from 2011 - 2013, under the old ownership of the community. Since the new owners and new management took over in March of 2013 (which are still present today), those marked-up cable/internet fees were reduced significantly, and the valet waste fee (along with many other fees) are non-existent. All in all, whatever was set in place for additional fees under past ownership & management, were nearly cut in half. Again, we greatly appreciate and value your feedback! Best Regards, Community Manager Parc at University Tower
