Resident Reviews

submitted by  - |Recommended: NoThey do not clean apartments before you move in and has a very gross smell. There is no thermostat in the apartments so the summers, fall, and spring are insanely hot and winters are freezing and they don't do anything about it. UP is very expensive for what you get.
response from property -Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention. We apologize for the cleanliness issues you encountered here at University Plaza. I can assure you that every apartment is painted and professionally cleaned prior to a new resident moving-in. University Plaza is all-inclusive apartment style living for students. The building is heated during the winter months, early spring the heat turned off and come late spring/early summer the air conditioner is turned on. We understand that this may not work for everyone, so we do offer portable heaters and fans to residents as a courtesy. If you are a current resident and will like a fan or heater, please come on down to the office, we are happy to help. -University Plaza

response from property -Mitraya! Thank you for your feedback!
submitted by  - |Recommended: NoUpper management does not care about guests or residents. They actively look for reasons to tow guests and do not take care of issues like laundry or setting up a proper plan for plowing during snow storms. Emails have been sent out notifying to move cars for parking lot work, just for no work or updates to occur. The washers and driers are constantly having issues and being ignored even though management is aware of issues. Maintenance and front office people are great and it is safe, however.
response from property -Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. Here at University Plaza our goal is to provide the best service for our residents. University Plaza staff does not call the tow company to tow cars. We have a contracted tow company that will come on the property and remove cars that are illegally parked. Given our harsh Illinois winters we do have a snow removal company that we scheduled to have onsite to assist are maintenance staff with snow removal. All washing machines and dryers throughout the property have been replaced with brand new washing machines and dryers. If you are a current resident come on down to the office and enjoy a free wash and dry ON US! :)

submitted by Joseph A. - |Recommended: YesClean and Organized, Maintenance could use improvement — Property Staff is punctual, services such as gym and basement activities are cleanly and well-maintained. Maintenance could be slightly better left elevator on south building continues to break down. The laundry machine chip readers do not work well, I have been charged before without getting access to the washer.
