Rent is high compared to places and facilities. I am living is studio and such a tiny place has a rent well above $900. The shuttles to UB are good facilities but in fall too there is 1 hr gap, which is too long when harse and busy time comes up. Our apt is always dirty in staircase and common area to enter the apartments, nobody cleans it and carpet is so dirty and old too, the image of cv is bad when somebody comes and sees those carpets.
If I could give this place no stars I would. I moved to CV Jan '17 and worst mistake I've made. I was supposed to live in a two bedroom and upon move in date after I paid rent for two bedroom I was forcefully put into a 4Br and they wanted to charge me more. Apparently the two bedroom was not ready for someone to live there and it was filthy. I sucked it up and switched but refused to give them more money like they asked. this was only the beginning. I also had a roommate that dated one of the security guards at the gatehouse, lets call her C. C can call anytime she or any of her friends was doing something wrong in the complex and tell him not to show if someone called security. THATS DANGEROUS! One day my other roommate B was soo mad she pulled a box cutter out and threatened to slice me because I thought something she said was immature but apparently I had no right to correct her. I called security and they never came. My life was in danger and they were made aware and never came. Instead they sent two resident assistants over as if they couldn't have been stabbed too. However they were able to calm her down and get her weapon from her but then he gave it back and told her to put it in her room. Corruption again! I asked this man who worked for CV if he was going to call the police and he said "I do not want to see another one of my brothers and sisters going to jail." Not the proper, professional, or correct answer. I called the police myself and they got the weapon and arrested her after the two resident assistants told them there was no weapon involved. I wrote a letter to management explaining problems from then and from why we live in buffalo and all winter I have not had heat. Sad very sad. CV doesn't care about anything other than your money. NOT EVEN YOUR SAFETY! I can sit here and go on an on about this topic because i will be heard and CV can not shut me out!
