Horrible place to live . Management is the worse. Always making new ridiculous rules. Dont live here just because the rent is cheap. You get what you pay for !

Thank you very much!


Oherall, I'm not satisfied with my stay here. I don't know if my expectations were too high coming in or what. The cons outweigh the pros of living here in my opinion.

Here are the areas I'm disappointed in:

The utility overages are ridiculous and I've tried speaking with the company that does the billing to see what I can do to lower the utility cost. Even with following the tips they gave me, I'm still seeing a large overage. They said there's a base fee that is charged and it's a good chunk of the utility allowance that's included in the rent. I wish I was told that before I signed my lease. I feel like I cant really enjoy living here because I'm constantly worried about how much my next overage will be. I've never had this problem with other student complexes with the same utility allowance and I had been less conservative of my utility usage then.

Lack of resident events:
Other student apartment complexes have had many events for their residents. I don't think this complex does them. If they have then I must not be getting the emails or seeing advertisements. I know that the complex is not obligated to host the events, but I was told on my tour that they would host them. I think it's a nice way to build a relationship with the residents and for other residents to get to know people in the community.

I feel like as a whole, the office staff is not organized. It's not uncommon for me to be told one thing by one person and a different thing by the next person.

There are a couple of things I really like about living here:

Pest Control:
The complex has a someone from a pest control company that comes weekly. If you ever have a problem with bugs, it gets taken care of in a timely manner.

Even though the utilities are pretty high, the rent itself is a GREAT price, especially for the size of the apartment. There's a lot of space to utilize.

I'm sorry that you have been unhappy here. As you know, we changed management & are doing our best to make THE SOUTHERN a great place to live! For utilities, starting March 2018, we have eliminated the overages. There is now a flat fee for water, sewer, trash, pest control, cable & wi-fi. We have started the "Breakfast Club" & we will be doing a pizza social Friday night! As for organization, we've got all new staff & are working towards that GOAL!
