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.
I have been received incredibly well into the University Village community with their fast service and incredible convenience. I am so excited to see all of the incredible thigs they have to offer!
this is a great apartment to live in. Although it is pricy, it has the complete package with its great spacious set up and already furnished rooms.
I love the location of UV. Off campus but still have safety and security of south campus. I love the layout and having my own bedroom and bathroom. Just the right amount of privacy and independence.
So far it has been a great experience and a very nice place to stay. People are nice and staff are very helpful. I would recomend this place to all of my friends!
Great having the UV community clubhouse to use anytime for workouts or to study with a group. UV offers good community events for everyone too!
Clean, updated apartment with great amount of room. The rooms are all big, and the kitchen has great appliances. We really enjoy the convenience of having our own washer, dryer, and dishwasher.
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
-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
-said bathroom ensuite
-Remodeled within last 20 years
-heat included or most utilities included
It is the first time for me to live off-campus, and I love it! I enjoy the community atmosphere in UV, and the apartment is clean and safe! I will definitely recommend UV to anyone that wants to live in a safe and quiet community with helpful RAs.

I have had a great experience the past 2 years that I have lived here and I would recommend University Village Apartments on Colvin to anyone!
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 like the apartments a lot. The rooms are big and I love it that I have my own bedrooms. The TV is nice however the quality of all channels are not as good sometimes.
University Village is a great area to live in. Allows for easy access to all necessities like the bus stop, grocery store and even a workout room.
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.
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.
Everything is absolutely beautiful! The rooms are spacious and living and kitchen area are beautiful and amazing to have and entertain guest!
I really love living here. It is in a fantastic location and there isn't too much noise around the apartment. The amenities are all well kept and the office is very helpful
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.
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.
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.
I have had a great experience living at UV. I have lived here for three years and loved it. The staff is friendly and the maitnenece staff is quick and reliable.
I love my apartment,everything is lovely!! All my neighbors are very friendly.The staff is extremely helpful with everything that I've needed help with so far.
Well organized, friendly, and helpful staff. Smooth move-in process and the apartment is just as the photos on the website indicate. Impressed by the overall facilities and amenities included.
The apartment community has been extremely welcoming and warm to the residents moving in, especially me. I feel like this new community already feels like my home.
So far my experience has been positive. I have not moved in yet, more to come!! Sam has been very helpful and has answered all my questions!
I love my apartment m. Wouldn't choose anywhere else to live! Love that there's a laundry room in my apartment. Love that I have my own bathroom in my bedroom. Love that there's a dishwasher!
Everyone at UV has been very helpful so far! I am excited to move into my apartment and learn more about the community at UV on Colvin. Go Orange!
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.
UV is a great place to live with a very nice & helpful maintenance staff! In lived at University Village on Colvin for two years because the apartment had everything I could have wanted and more!
University apartments are highly recommended for college students looking for those looking to stay in the nicer apartments on campus. The set up and up to date services as well as spacious living countries provides for many alluring benefits to its boarders.
The community is a great place to a part of. Everyone that lives in the community is nice and understanding. The apartment community is one of the highlights of academic career here.
University Village is a very quiet and nice community to be living in, a very ideal location for those that attend SU. Operations here run smoothly and staff are very helpful and understanding.
Great customer service and the deals are really useful. I'm really excited to move in to my UV apartment. I believe that this is the best place to be at SU.
I think certain things in the apartment could be better but as a whole I am satisfied with everything and love the extra perks especially wing Wednesday from OIP
UV worked out perfectly for me. The staff was very willing to help wherever and whenever possible, great amenities were available, they had awesome perks and benefits, and a phenomenal living experience overall.
Having trouble with website, haven't moved in yet. Rewards system confusing, but am getting help. This system could be better in a few ways just
Really great and friendly service, the only suggestion I would make is to somehow make the rent cheaper, but other than that I have been totally satisfied.
I enjoy my apartment community I feel very safe, would recommend having it cleaned more often. It is a great place to live as a college student great experience
They have been so helpful and the process to getting a lease was so easy! I love all the benefits that come along with living i University Village.
I love it here. The community is great, the staff is very helpful and it's my home away from home. There isn't anything I can think of that k don't like.
Really good community environment. Everyday is a happy day everyday. Loving community very uplifting. My days here are A1 and I enjoy every bit of it.
Living at University Village has been amazing. It has the feeling of being off campus while still technically being on south campus. The staff are beyond nice and are always available to help.
I like living here at University village Apartments on Colvin. I do not really ever encounter any problems, if so, they're minor. Very comfortable.
Staff is very friendly and helpful and the apartments are gorgeous! Neighbors are noisy sometimes but that is the only complaint and quite often DPS ends up shutting them down anyway.
Love these apartments! They're very comfortable. I love having my own bathroom, and the mattress is amazing. The space is perfect, neither too big or small
The community assistants have been really helpful! Though sometimes it felt like no one was around after business hour. Overall good job! looking forward to my second year here.
I have had some issue that could have been handled better. But over all the space of the apartment is well worth the money and time we have went through
really quality apartments, love the spacey kitchens and that there is laundry in the units. the bedrooms are all really spacious, and overall the apartment is great.
Four girls on my team currently live in University Village. Spending time in their apartment has convinced me to live in UV my junior year. I am so excited to move in in August! Also the email correspondence I have had with employees has been easy.
could be a little more organized. love the apartments. very nice. maintenance is done in very timely manner. i just wish the communication between the leasing office and us residents were better.
good.it is clean and big space. if you came you will like here. price is the only thing you need to worry about. here is convince to go to school
Every time we have called the office they have had great customer service and are always nice. They have informed us of all of the benefits and made signing the lease very easy
I love the University Village. The staff is always friendly. They have many fun activities each month for the residents of UV. They also have busses to transport you to the football games!
Very good. The thing I like most about UV is the kindness. From neighbors, to staff everyone remains friendly. Everyday is a great experience.
I love having a private bedroom and bathroom in my cozy apartment. Additionally, waking up to fresh Starbucks coffee is always plus, especially during cold mornings.
I have always enjoyed the amenities at UVA! I think that's the best part about the property versus other properties in the Syracuse University Community!
great! quick and easy. applied my points for renewing my lease and put my address for my free $200 gift card to be mailed. hopefully it comes soon! great experience!
University Village on Colvin is the best place to live! The people who work their are always so friendly and the apartments have really great amenities.
I enjoy my apartment! Whenever there's an issue with my apartment, maintence fixes it quickly. I love the resident events that are held. I annoy having my own space.
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 living in University Village. The overall staff is great and living conditions are great. I've had no issues that could not get resolved in a nice amount of time.
I love living in University village! The faculty and staff are nice and my living envionrment is very comfortable and relaxing. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone!
University Village has been an awesome place to live in so far. My only complaint is that I've recently gotten replacement key and it does not let me into the main building.
I love how clean you keep the buildings, but I'm not loving my living situation. It's nice to have a gym and printing center so close to my apartment.
I enjoy living in University Village because everything I need is in a close proximity. I like that my laundry is located in my apartment and that each person has their own bathroom. It is a great and spacious place to live.
Quick response time to any issues. When we had an issue with the drain there was someone at the apartment basically the next day to fix it. Very satisfied.
Truly living here has been enjoyable. I've already decided I'll be living here again without a doubt. My friends were hoping that I would be living off campus in an apartment with them, but I feel much safer in UV.
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.
I enjoy the activities they provide and warm environment keep up the good job thanks for all the hard work it is greatly appreciated will see you soon
So far so good! Would be nice to have weekend maintenance service. Many great perks and would definitely recommend University Village to others.
I love living here so far. There have already been three fire alarms in only three weeks so I'm wondering if that's normal? Otherwise the units are really nice and my roommate matchup has worked out really well so far!
I am very pleased with my experience at University village at Colvin. The apartments are so nice and so is the common room facilities. It is a very enjoyable place to live
Lily Brodsky ..
The UV apartments have all the amenities I need to survive being away from my parents, and the office staff is EXTREMELY helpful and friendly to boot. I have thanked God these past few days for this wonderful central air and I am beyond happy with my decision to live at UV.
Everything's great! The staff members are so nice! Wish there were more events though.. And if we could really get rent reminder that would be awesome!
I love living in UV! It's a great place to live as it has many ammenities. From the free starbucks, to free tanning, to a movie room all at your fingertips, it's wonderful!
UV has really nice apartments that are spacious and clean and a big improvement over campus living. It's a little pricey, but the amenities like being right on the bus route and the clubhouse help.
It has been great! Love having my own personal bathroom and having privacy. I also love the structure of the house. I wish I could live here again. Just that thermals are too thin
I really enjoyed living here. There are a lot of added benefits such as the events that the clubhouse holds. Maintenance is also very efficient.
Love my experience at UV. Ever since the first day my stay at university village has been tremendously enjoyable. If I were not a senior I would have renewed my lease
This is my second year living in University Village apartments and I absolutely love it here. I always feel safe which was a big concern for me. I was given a nice, clean, modern apartment. The maintenance staff is always willing to help fix anything. I have had a great experience living here these last two years and will be very sad to say goodbye after graduation.
You guys are doing really amazing. I particularly enjoy the movie theatre because it is so snuggly and homie that it makes me feel like I am in an actual theatre.
UV is great! All the staff is nice and the things that they provide such as free laundry, study rooms and free printing are great. Its clutch!
I love living in UV, especially the different community events that are offered! They allow me to meet new people around me. I also love how easily it is to get packages!
I love living here. I like how we have events like Wing Wednesday or Waffles in the morning before class. The maintenance staff is also very helpful when it comes to fixing stuff.
I'm satisfied overall with UV Colvin. My unit is satisfactory although I have needed multiple repairs. The maintenance and clubhouse staff are excellent. I appreciate all of the events UV puts on for its residents, it's a nice touch. I have enjoyed my time at UV more than I have at my past south campus apartments.
My experience at UV-Colvin has been pretty great! There's an unwanted draft coming from the windows when it gets really cold out which causes my room to be cold overall.
I think that university village on Colvin is doing an amazing job. Whenever something is broken or needs work they are quick. Best location to live on campus.
I truly enjoy everything about University Village Apartments. The amenities are great. If we do encounter a problem within our apartment the staff is always very attentive. The only thing I may suggest is faster snow removal services and fire alarm management.
Expensive but worth it for everything else that is included. In the end I think I have probably ended up saving money with all of the free printing, coffee, parking, and laundry included.
Great place to stay, great transportation and stores near by. Also the staff is great and understandable. Been happy ever since I moved in the place.
Excellent services, facilities, and staff!! So happy with UV. I wouldn't live anywhere else! It's such a treat & luxury!!
The maintainence is always very quick and efficient. It is safe, secure, and better than my expectations! I just love it here in my UV apartment
The amenities are great and the property is clean and well-maintained. The staff is knowledgeable but sometimes rude. Nonetheless overall good experience.
The building is clean and the clubhouse is always neat and clean. The staff is very friendly and I like the Starbucks coffee machine. You should probably get two of those to help the morning rush.
Pretty good. I really like the programs that the CAs put together for the residents. On the contrary, you should hire more staff to fix things around the complex. Two aren't enough.
Friendly staff, comfort living, and a great place to live for SU students. The events that the UV clubhouse host are wonderful. Hands down one of the best places to live off campus.
Bring back waffle Wednesday! one of my favorite parts of living here! Also fresh fruit Friday. It's great just being able to stop in and get food right before leaving for class.
Always get emails and updates, make us feel like a small community, love the free food, maintenance always comes quick, everything is clean and very nice
I have love living here at University Villages this year. Having my own bathroom has been amazing! Maintenance always comes quickly whenever there is an issue. Having a washer and dryer right in our apartment (no to mention it's free) it wonderful.
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
I love living at UV! No place else I would rather live while attending SU. I greatly enjoy the amenities and fun events hosted by the CA's. Luxury student housing at its finest!
Love everything about it here! Especially getting hot chocolate in the morning at the clubhouse. The staff is amazing and always so helpful! :)
I liked living here and I would recommend it to others. Only complaint I have is that sometimes the heating can be spotty, but no other complaints
Apartment is beautiful! The people upstairs are way too loud and it is difficult to sleep at night. I love the kitchen and all of the nice, functional appliances-- something that not every college student has!
The best quality apartment you can get through housing. Love having my own bedroom and bathroom. Free laundry is also a plus. Also enjoy the free food from the clubhouse when they have events.
My experience at UV Colvin has been pleasant so far. The staff is friendly and maintanence request get completed quickly. I definitely would refer this housing to a friend.
I love living at UV. I love the fact that there is a laundry facility and you get to have your own bathroom. Sometimes it takes a while for maintenance to come when you need something fixing but other then that UV is pretty great.
The service here is really great, and I love the apartment as a whole. I was just somewhat disappointed when I found out that not everyone received a temporpedic bed as advertised. Otherwise, great place and great community.
This is a wonderful place to live. The staff are friendly and are quick to take care of any concerns which may arise. The clubhouse perks are a bonus too!
Excellent and always helpful with whatever repairs needed. We needed new floors due to a leak and they came in as soon as possible and cleaned it up and made it look pretty !
