Place built out of garbage materials that break on their own. When they do, you get charged. Don't bother taking care of the place because you'll get charged anyway. Other reviews said they underwent new management, and if so, the new one isn't any better. Large parking lot is never filled to capacity, but they insist on charging high amounts for parking. You'll get robbed during the winter for heat. Was told to try and rely on living room heater to cut down on electricity. However, over breaks, we were forced to turn up the individual room heat, or else be charged for maintenance to turn them on. The resulting electrical bill for that month, while it was unoccupied than any other month.<br><br>At least the downstairs neighbors didn't mind noise. This is college. People are expected to make noise. The college should have made arrangements for quiet dorms for those who insist on silence. That said, noise does travel easily. Downstairs people seemed to be nocturnal, and their TV could be heard loudly at night. No problem though since this is college. Make noise, accept noise.<br><br>Anything goes wrong outside of your apartment itself, if it's close to your apartment, you get accused and often charged right away. Maintenance / land lord management shows no courtesy. University itself can't even send your information to your parents without your permission. These people think otherwise, and have no problem with it at all. That said, I'm sure there's something about it in the contract giving them permission.<br><br>They yell at you when you change a lightbulb, saying it's covered by them. But by allowing them to come change it, you'll also be then subsequently hit with a bunch of different fines for "damages" that they find around the apartment. The apartment is set up to fail at different places, allowing them to charge at their will. Faulty door stops, faulty toilets, faulty doors, faulty windows, faulty switches, everything. Waiting to fail. Waiting to cause damage. Waiting to charge you.<br><br>All in all, Gun Hill is a dump that they try to promote as heaven. On the outside, it looks decent. But step inside... If they accepted it for what it was instead of trying to convince everyone of something else, it wouldn't have been as much of a problem. Be prepared to lose at least 50% of your deposit if you're lucky, and give yourself a headache maintaining the place. Otherwise, be ready to lose it all, or have to pay more out of pocket.
