Being a veteran of the building for the last decade, I can say that I've seen A LOT of positive changes over the last few months with new management at the helm. The cosmetic brick work has gone according to plan on the east side of the building and is now complete with the focus on the west side for the next few months. Improvements to the common areas and general upkeep are certainly a positive once again. I've noticed a few new courtesy officers who make me feel even safer than before as well. The location, essentially being on campus across from the new USC Law Center, makes it easy for me to get where I need to go, oftentimes without needing a car. To address concerns some reviewers have noted about climate control: My apartment has three climate control units, one in the large living room and one in each of the two bedrooms. I have never had an issue with any of them or their thermostats. They are independently controlled (each room can be set at a different temperature), which is actually really convenient. I haven't seen this feature in other apartments around campus. As for the twice a year switch over from heat-to-AC and vice versa, my unit has three-speed ceiling fans and the new commercial style windows as most other units do. I've never had a problem remaining comfortable nor have any of my roommates in the past. I use the ceiling fans as needed or slightly crack one of the energy efficient windows, and within minutes I'm comfortable. Overall, for the location, amenities, and size of the units I'm really happy with Senate Plaza and can't imagine where I could get the same value elsewhere on campus!
This old building is not worth your time, money, or patience. Not only is this not a non-smoking building (hallways and stairwells reek of smoke, and it often seeps under the doors of neighboring units), the building completely controls when the units have air conditioning or heat. Today is April 3, 2018, and the building still refuses to turn on the air conditioning. It has been off since the first week of November. This place is truly uninhabitable. This is South Carolina, where we have had dozens of 80+ degree days since January, yet management sits in their air conditioned lobby without a care in the world for the residents and homeowners. Inhumane living conditions. You will be told to "open a window"--well when its 100% humidity, 75 degrees outside, and pouring rain, the window isn't going to do much. And when its not raining, prepare for your entire unit to be coated in a nice thick layer of pollen, all because you wanted some air circulation in your apartment--it's still hot. I cannot discourage your interest in this place enough. Seek alternative housing options. I could go on about other issues, but I've go to go sit in my car to get some A/C before I go to sleep.
Visit a unit the other day, it was very hot. Impossible to stay in. I couldn't believe people can live in a place so hot. AC was on high at all times.
The building is very old and outdated. Rent is too expensive.
I had so many issues that I was just very pleased moving out. Management was simply unprofessional.
