I think Uheights is a wonderful place to live. The people who work in the office are wonderful and the maintenance guys take care of everything. It is an incredibly comfortable place to live.
The staff (office & maintenance) are always polite friendly And helpful The grounds are kept well maintained Nice mix of cultures
I have only been here for approximately 6 weeks as i write this review. I can say that the appliances here are so old that we have had constant trouble out of them. It is not uncommon for us to go without air conditioning for 3 hours about 3-4 times a week. This would not be an issue if it wasn't 95 degrees outside in the dead of summer. The outside units constantly freeze up leaving you to sweat it out until they un-freeze or are fixed otherwise. Also, if you have a pet I highly advise finding somewhere else as it is $300 for your first animal and a modest increase in monthly rent. The two good things I can say is that it is relatively low priced compared to other apartments in the region and the faculty that work here are very nice and willing to help in most situations. For what it is worth though I will not be Renewing my lease here.
Living arrangements were fine, for that I give two stars. After move out there was no attempt to contact us made in order to pay for damages until we received summons from an Attorney. Yet, we received emails and phone calls from them regularly as tenants. Needless to say this could have been handled much more professionally. They still refuse to disclose the damages and the reasoning to charge us twice our deposit.
This would be excellent except for the bus service. We rented based on your advertised claim that there is bus service provided by the University. That is not entirely true. There is bus service while classes are in session and never during the weekend (though other apartment complexes offer it). For most of the year there is no bus service. That is unfortunate and you should not make the claim - or- as with other apartment complexes provide year round service.
At University Heights, we've thought of everything, so you don't have to worry about anything. From providing facilities for living well to services that make your life easy, UHeights is the place where everything is at your fingertips. Our Charlottesville apartments offer easy access to major travel arteries, shopping, restaurants, and services. University of Virginia grounds and Darden Law School are also within walking distance.
