The management is extremely condescending and does not give you any respect.<br> The head maintenance man, the guy you have to go to for all your malfunctions, is also extremely condescending and feels that he has the authority to tell you to clean your room. He blames you for everything even when the heating unit completely malfunctions in the middle of winter. <br> The "convenient" bus does not cover half of campus. It goes halfway up East Avenue and turns at Tower Rd. to make a loop around Barton so that the area that includes Rockefeller, Baker, and Goldwin Smith is not passed at all. The bus comes every 15 minutes BUT it takes a very long break from 12:30 to 2:00; therefore, if you need to go to campus or come back during those times, you have to walk. It's a long walk in the winter. The bus drivers can be complete jerks and leave you out in the cold/rain if you're waiting at a stop sign instead of a designated stop. The bus also does not always come ontime and often does not come at all so you are left there waiting. This has happened many times to me at night.<br> This place is on a hill so during the winter it is very dangerous to drive. If the snow is not maintained well then the car will skid and you might not be able to make it into the parking lot. When the snow starts piling up then it is quite possible to slide down the hill.<br> The electricity bills are through the roof and the hot water is on a timer...which means no hot water at night.<br> The walls are thin so sound travels. I can hear people walking up and down the steps all the time. <br> If you need an apartment go to Ravenwood. They are about the same price, closer, the TCAT (professional city) bus comes every 10 minutes and those drivers are much nicer, and larger apartments.
