It's a really nice apartment and I really enjoy. If the living room is bigger and the rate is cheaper, I will be more satisfied. Anyway, it is a really good option

I love the community of university village apartments. It is a secluded environment allowing for a quiet space in a big and busy college. Having my own bedroom and bathroom is my favorite part about this place, and the kitchen is a close second. All of the amenities that UV gives us are amazing and I would recommend it to others.

Living in UV has been amazing! It's such a clean, and pristine place. I love the design, and overall community so much. It's a privilege to live there, it's been one of my best decisions to move in so far.

Write a list down of what you absolutely must have and literally go down the list with the landlord (or visually), making sure you have everything. I am living in a place without a dishwasher because I'm a moron and didn't bring the list with me. Check off the things you "like, but aren't necessary". Here is "my" list for my next apt (I've had 6 apartments after freshman dorm living). Some of these presume you have a roommate. -My own bathroom -dishwasher -gas stove -outdoor space (to grill and sit) -ample street parking or an off-street parking space -a/c (window is fine). -The place must have laundry in the building; free is a bonus. -3rd floor or higher must have elevator -Overnight guests no more than 2 nights/week -Close to busline. -Within 3 miles of grocery store and gym -Safe neighborhood Preferences: -said bathroom ensuite -Remodeled within last 20 years -heat included or most utilities included -Hardwood floors

the conditions for my apartment were great, besides a few problems in the beginning of the year. for example, the room above us had pipes leaking into our kitchen area, but that has been fixed. Otherwise, it's been great.

I really love University Village! Everyone who works there is so kind and really accommodating. The amenities included when you sign a lease at UV are incredible, I can't tell you how nice it is to have a washer/dryer in the actual apartment. I would definitely recommend UV to a friend!

I love living in UV. It is a very friendly community and has all the amenities one could wish for. The staff is very helpful and I really enjoy the apartment layouts.

4 / 5

The Reserve on Stinson Norman

The community itself is rather pleasant, but I barely know anybody. For example, I've never talked to my direct apartment neighbors. However, interactions in the common areas (e.g. Coffee station or printing station) have been very nice. All the staff is very helpful and eager to fulfill requests. The maintenance is a bit slow but that is due to a mix-up of apartment numbers.

The apartment is totally worth the money. The people at UV are super accommodating and friendly. I have had zero issues living at UV so far and will most likely renew my lease with them because the apartments are so great. You have everything you could want and they know how to show appreciation for their residents with many different events.

The Reserve on Stinson Norman

I have had a reasonably good experience here. I am hardly home, so I'm not really sure what goes on during the day time, but for the most part, I appreciate the relative distance of the trashcan from my apartment building. There is always parking available. I appreciate the available Starbucks coffee in the clubhouse. If UV ever undergoes renovation, the community should consider having balconies.

4 / 5

The Reserve on Stinson Norman

I love how I have my own bathroom and I love how close I am to the bus stop. The location of UV is very convenient, on south campus, so I still feel the safety of being on campus but not too close to main campus. Great balance.

Everything is great. Only thing I wish could be better is the cable service. Otherwise, the apartments are fantastic, the amenities are great, and the neighborhood is perfect.

Great place with plenty of space. The rooms are large with plenty of natural light--great for studying long hours without feeling locked inside a dungeon. Everything is paid for in the rent, including parking, which makes it easy to focus on school-work, not bills.

The Reserve on Stinson Norman

Maintenance could be better. They have slow response times unless it is labeled as an emergency. The gym could be improved as well. It desperately needs to be thoroughly cleaned. The rent payment system needs a major upgrade as well. It is confusing to pay in advance, which is concerning when dealing such a large amount of money. There are no reminders set for when rent is due.

I love the coffee. I like how all of the staff are so nice and I really like that I get an email for when a package arrives. However, I do not think the fridge is big enough for 4 people, and I feel like the people above me walk too loud. But other than that is it great.

Living at UV has had both its ups and downs. I love how everything is included in the rent so its easy to keep everything organized. A few things I don't like are the television channels, how instead of sending an email out saying rent is due on the first of each month we get a late fee charge and also the white maintenance guy has been very rude before
