Resident Reviews

submitted by Maha A. - |Recommended: YesUniversity Plaza Overall Review — I would definitely recommend people to live here, its a very safe, clean environment with helpful staff and friendly neighbors.
submitted by Brinaisha P. - |Recommended: YesIt was a great home like experience. On move in day the workers in the leasing office were very friendly and helpful. — I would tell them this a great apartment to live in. It's spacious and homelike. They have a fitness center and even pool inside the building, so you don't have to travel elsewhere.
submitted by Maire O. - |Recommended: YesSafe, quiet and nice amenities — UP is safe and I really appreciate it. The rent does seem a little high, but in DeKalb you get what you pay for and I'd rather pay more to be in a safe environment. It's quiet, nice amenities and the employees are very friendly. I do however wish the building was cleaner. There is litter on the grounds and some people do not pick up after their dogs and the staff needs to do a better job of enforcing regulations. UP does have its faults, but I would 100 recommended a friend to live here. The pros outweigh the cons.

submitted by Michael S. - |Recommended: YesI think this is a comfortable, well-maintained place with lots of nice amenities. — It's kind of like living in a hotel. That's the way the rooms are set up, and it has a very convenient location right next to campus.

submitted by Claire O. - |Recommended: YesI love the environment, price, and people — I love living at UP because the buildings are all well kept and the amenities are great. If anything, the only complaints I have are that the walls are somewhat thin, so loud neighbors can be disturbing on occasion. The AC unit in my apartment has also had multiple issues, but the staff was nice and efficient at fixing the problem. Other than that, I love the layout, price, people and environment. It is definitely one of the better places to live around campus.

submitted by Daisy G. - |Recommended: YesDecent living with roommates — It's pretty great when you have roommates. Although some things are run down overall I am pretty happy with the apartment. Just keep a look out for the extra charges they sneak in when rent is due. It won't tel you on the website, you'll have to ask. They aren't too expensive but let try to get things to slide.
