It's not a bad place to live at all, it's totally affordable and you are not far from downtown or any of the schools Read More at Google Maps

This is a great place to live. The bus to UT is directly outside the gate, the apartments are spacious, and the people are friendly. The weight room is great to go to when you don't want to pay for something larger, and the pool is always clean. Sometimes Maintence can get a little behind, buts that's understandable I presume conside ... Read More at Yelp

LET ME KEEP IT REAL. For the $620 I have been paying to stay here in my 3 bed room, I have got the best of it. Location: Convenient because the corner store and the HEB. It's on River side, but this apartment is a diamond in the rough. Nothing bad happens here, not the hood. You good LOL. Some people in the world just have bad luck ... Read More at Google Maps

love it here, maintenance is awesome and the location and residents are wonderful. Read More at Yelp

Overall very good place to live. Have had minimal maintenence issues and staff is very friendly. Only downside is my place smells like mothballs sometimes, but this could be from a neighbor. Read More at Yelp

We had a bike stolen off our balcony. We live in the back apartment facing the woods on the third floor. Someone had to have a 40ft latter to get it with a means of moving both a latter and a bike. I don't know any student who would care that much for the bike that was stolen or pass up my roommates who was next to it. No ones taken ... Read More at Google Maps

Nice location and amenities. Apartment units are modern and spacious, providing ample opportunity to decorate. Maintenance and front staff are often unresponsive, though, and problems generally don't get fixed within their "48 hour turn around" period. Had a lot of problems upon move in with the appliances and overall condition of th ... Read More at Yelp

Its honestly not terrible. Good for the price that you get, given the fact that utilities are paid for (unless you go over an electric cap, only happened once in the summer for like $5). It's your typical student apartment housing, there will be litter, there will be dog poop, service is sometimes slow, etc. If you can handle the not ... Read More at Google Maps

A great place to live! Love how clean it is and how friendly people are! Also the management team and all the workers are always very helpful. I also enjoy when y'all hold events for the residents. Read More at Yelp

parking situation could be better . appliances work well. no complaints, nice appartments, could be better furnitire, pet fee too expensice . Read More at Yelp

Decent place to live, amenities are nice, close to downtown. Rent isn't the cheapest in Austin, but when you factor in that all your other bills are included and the apartment comes furnished, it's a good deal. I hope to stay for a while :) Read More at Google Maps

A bit far from campus but very reasonable price, nice amenities, UT shuttle access and adjacent to a lovely park. Read More at Google Maps

Overall it is a great place to live. The apartments have a washer and dryer in the unit and they are usually quick to respond to maintenance requests. They also have great events for residents. Read More at Yelp

It's affordable, in a great location - close to transportation & entertainment, it's got great amenities - for college students & non-students alike - & It's generally got awesome neighbors & roommates. I love living there. Read More at Facebook

Mostly great. All of my questions are answered quickly, but work orders are a slow process.   The people in the leasing office are wonderful. Read More at Yelp

I like it here. My neighbors upstairs can be a bit noisy and maintenance is slow, but it's good. Read More at Yelp

The rooms are an okay size. The windows don't have netting. You cant' flush the toilet then turn on the shower or it will make a really annoying and weird high pitched sound. I can hear water running every hour at random. The "kitchen appliances" is just a stove, microwave, and oven. In my opinion, the rooms are not the same size exa ... Read More at Yelp

I give it 4/5 only because I haven't moved in yet, but by far the friendliest staff for a great price! I'm excited for move in day! Read More at Google Maps

The place is okay. It could be improved. Don't-- under any circumstance, park a car that doesn't have a parking permit anywhere but the visitor section. My friend parked in a residential space (because all the visitor spots near my building were full) without a permit and got towed within the hour. I really hate that aspect about the ...

My leasing experience went very well. I was in direct contact with a leasing consultant via text messaging and he answered all of my question very quickly. The lease application took minutes because it was online which made it convenient. All in all, it was a fast, easy experience. Read More at Google Maps

This is hands down the best student housing complex you can find in Austin the staff is super friendly and helpful and they have these events every few weeks or so where they give out free root beer floats or sandwiches or whatever it may be in the club house. The pool and Hotub are fantastic and well designed and the gym is open 24/ ... Read More at Google Maps


Used to have a problem with maintenance but after speaking to the property manager, Mrs. Hurd, the issues they were resolved. Clean, haven't had issues with noise or crime and prices are the most reasonable in the city for what's offered, approximately $650 a month all included utilities, rent and furnishing.

Taylor was very helpful, and I love the complex! Signed my lease! Read More at Google Maps

After I had rented the apartment I was told by a previous resident that it was a terrible place to live in, that maintenance was horrible and took forever to get anything fixed, so I was pleasantly surprised to find how smooth things went. I am in a 4x4 apt. And they did a great job on my roommates. I feel very lucky to have gotten 3 ... Read More at Google Maps

it a nice place to live where you can make new friends too be close to other stores you can go and count on your maintenance so if any thing break down in your room or in the untie there are there to fix it for you you don't have to worried about it Read More at Google Maps

I lived in the premium 3x3 and I loved the kitchen. I wish the pool was open more often. Most of the times I wanted to swim it was locked up. When I first got here in August, my room was not ready to live in and that left a lasting impression but great learning experience for if it ever happensince again in another apartment. Every e ...

The maintenance team was awesome. When my drier was broken they gave me a new one with no charge and same with my ceiling fan. Read More at Google Maps

It is an alright apartment and I doubt you will find much bettter for the pricing. Being student apartments, you should be aware of parties. I had ants in my room and restroom upon moving and all year, but they were of no consequence. Maintenance workers are great if you can get their attention and the boss genuinely wants to help. T ...

It's always nice to enjoy events here as well as prize give aways. The work orders have been a lot better and been done in a timely manner. Everything has improved since moving in. Read More at Google Maps

The management is okay. My neighbors are just drunk college students that always want to party. It can't get annoying sometimes, but that's really something that I expected. The property and the maintenance staff are really nice. Read More at Google Maps

It was a great time living here! Prices are great, the amenities are amazing, my roommates became fast friends for me and that's thanks to the roommate matching that they do! Maintenance was always on point, never had to wait longer than needed for something to be resolved, resident events were always a lot of fun. The staff is alwa ... Read More at Facebook

As a resident here at UEA, I have loved meeting new people. We are always hosting multiple resident events each month which is a great way to meet your neighbors.

All places can be bad or good. It is about how lucky you are in getting a good room or ask the management for fixing it with some iterations sometimes. Read the lease contract before you sign it so you won't be surprised by the different expenses. Nice monthly events, pool, gym. As for deposit refund, they should make the process eas ...

Definitely a great place if you are looking for affordable housing in Austin.

I'm not officially a student, but as a divorced disabled veteran, this place ranks on top for affordability, access to mass transit & shopping, management staff, & amenities. I can't ask for a nicer group of people to live around. Read More at Google Plus Local

It's definitely not the Taj Mahal, but for a garden-style apartment, it's on par with other places like this around town. Prices are competitive. I used to live at Metric and Braker for the same price as this in a similarly-sized and equipped apartment - it's super nice to actually live in town and walk/bike ride to places instead of ...

I lived here for my sophomore year at UT(2013-14). The rent was super cheap ($600/mo) and it was furnished too.

Molding chakra has long since been a basic tool for shinobi today. But what the Tatakai clan has discovered and honed over the years is something more than simple chakra molding. Their technique allows them to manipulate the very properties of chakra and change its state. This power takes careful training and practice to master. Th ... Read More at Google Plus Local

Great times at this place while attending ACC-Rio Grande and Pinnacle Campus and working downtown as a valet.

I rented this apt during my 2 yrs in Grad school at ut- and I'll be honest after reading the reviews online I was scared- I thought I would be robbed or stabbed or something but that didn't happen so here's the thing.
