I am currently living here and am made to feel like less of a person because it. I moved into a place that was dirty with a lot of problems. When I go into the office to report it I am talked down to and it is my fault that I am not happy with the services here. Don't complain about the services because management will deem it your fault. I have to communicate by email because I am not wanted in the office. I'm a college student trying to make my way and no matter what I deserve to be respected. I am a person and my living conditions are not my fault as management wants me to believe.

We strive to provide our residents with the highest level of customer service whenever possible. We would love the opportunity to improve our communication-style with you. We ask our residents to communicate via email for documentation purposes, in order to communicate clearly and efficiently. We care deeply for our residents and regret that you received the opposite impression. Please contact the office at your earliest convenience to speak with management.


I would not recommend living here. The fact is the security sucks , they not doing their job, because they have people coming in trashing the property and they charge the students for it. staff talk to you any kind of way when you try to talk to them about the situation. Every time you look around they going up on the price and always trying to find a way to charge you more. I only rate one star if I could I would rate a zero.

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 !
