Loathe it Here – I heard that there was new management and that it was a better place and with all the refurnishing they were doing and the girl (Initials BW) that we signed the lease with it seemed so. In reality they are just plain uncaring a-holes.
First complaint, I live on the 4th floor, so I definitely had to rent the furniture because there is no elevator (moving the stuff I had was already horrendous let alone furniture; I had 3 other people helping me and they were sweating up a storm). Second, I was promised during a showing that the place would be exactly the same, it was except for the patches of holes in the floor and a couch with a broken shoulder and a hole in the bottom that was not black pleather like the one in the showing. Third, when I moved in the girl with initials BW acted like she was writing stuff down about what was wrong with the place which ended up not having anything listed when I told her that it was unfair that we had holes in our floor and a broken couch that had yet to be replaced. Fourth, she said that our floors were going to be replaced with wood flooring which never happened and I didn't get a replacement couch until the second time I reminded her and that was about 2-3 months after moving in (The people across from us got the pleather couch and wood flooring). Fifth, there was a missing tray from the stove that she supposedly wrote down and me and my roommate had to constantly email her about it and that took a few weeks. Sixth, in the beginning she says they have this email program where you can communicate with your possible roommate that will be living on the other side, I ended up with a completely different person. Seventh, I got a boot on my car because I had to switch out cars while my other car was in repair and I forgot about the parking permit and the girl blamed the university because they are supposedly the ones that hire the people to put boots on cars when really the booting company is a private company that obviously has to be hired by them, anyway, she said they couldn't do anything about it and I ended up having to pay $70 dollars CASH even though I live here and thus not illegally parked there. Seventh, since I live on the fourth floor it is windy and the windows suck, you can hear the wind at night and the walls shake. Eigth, after the third month the light in the kitchen decides it wants to flicker like made and not light the room correctly. Tenth when I first moved in my toilet didn't flush, when they fixed it it flushed every minute, and the third time they fixed it it flushes on its own every few hours which I'm still living with. Other little things that relate to living conditions would be the lack of counter space, four visitor parking spaces, the washing machines taking only a card where you have to transfer money on (the girl made it sound so convenient when really its worse because you can only use 5 dollar bills and up), walking to the washer and dryer that's not four but five flights down the stairs if you live on the 4th floor, and the having to walk four flight of stairs and across the parking lot to throw out trash which they failed to mention where it was when I first moved in. All in all, this place sucks and if you find a roommate and/or find a different place than here you can save 100-300 dollars a month. Also, they say you save 30 dollars a month for signing your lease early, but if you ever decide to buy-out like I did they make you pay that back (So, I paid originally paid 689 per month but with the buy out I basically paid 719/month) . Oh and the advertisements said free internet, but she said they would charge after moving in, they haven't done anything yet , but who knows what these guys will do....
terrible – white washed brick walls remind me of a school building....you cant hang anything up on the wall because its cement brick. rude management is the worst of all.
