Will certainly not be renewing my lease here for another year. There have been (several) incidents where my account was charged faulty charges. Charges that were just mistakes on their part. Over the summer, I felt that the outside property (mowing, lawn care, etc) was taken fairly good care of. However, as soon as it started to get cold, a different story. One neighbor has an ESA, which I do not mind at all, however, she consistently takes it out and does not clean up after it. There are piles of feces in front of my window, in the rock patches, and in the grass everywhere. One cannot take a step off the cement path without a pile of feces every couple of steps. In my opinion, the apartment should be cleaning it up or enforcing that if a resident has an ESA, they MUST clean up any feces/messes that affect any other residents. Its a given that almost anytime one walks in the grass, they will step in feces. Another huge inconvenience is that the on site washer/dryer facilities are severely unkept. You can count on that whenever you go to do your laundry, there are going to be at least 2-4 machines not working. Whether it be a dryer posted with a hand written sign doesnt dry or doesnt work well or a washer that is full of dirty water that has been standing in the drum for days, or sometimes a washer that will take your money ($1.50/ washer load and $1.50/dryer load) and then will fill up with water but will not wash or spin down. So at that point youre stuck with a bunch of soaking wet (still dirty!) clothes that you have to take out and wash in a different machine. For this being my first time ever renting an apartment, I am incredibly dissatisfied and am worried of getting trapped into the same problems anywhere else I want to go. Would not recommend.
Lincolnshire West is the best place to live ever!!
Lincolnshire West was a great place to live while I was at NIU. The staff is friendly and maintenance is fixed pretty quick. It is also close enough to campus so I could walk to class. I actually didn't want to move after graduation, but the job I accepted is out of state.
