Lived there for two years, initially chosen for lowish rent cost and free internet, though they're beginning to raise rent costs with the renovations they're doing. Here's my general experience. Maintenance was always taken care of quickly in a day or two. The interior of my place was pretty run down but they're renovating a lot of them so who knows in a year. Never had crime while I lived there on the second floor. I had actually left my car window open for an entire week before realizing since I drive it so rarely. Not a single thing stolen so take that as you will. Speaking of cars: Always had available parking. Never came home to say 'Damn no spots'. It's a five minute walk to HEB and a 10 minute bike ride to campus (depending, if you go to blocker, halb, arcb etc) so you'll get hella fit if you stick to it for two+ years with multiple trips in a day (lost 20lbs myself). The free internet... Kinda sucks. The speeds are 'fine' (Regularly got about 16Mbps down, not sure the up) but my apartment suffered horrible packetloss with suddenlink unable to fix anything. If you want to play games or be a streamer or something in your off time, you may want to spring for a better package. Demographically it's dominated by Chinese immigrants and exchange students that keep to themselves. Not sure if that'll change with the rent hikes. On move out I cleaned like crazy and fixed any broken stuff. got an inspection and as promised didn't have to pay for cleaning/move out fees other than the 75$ admin 'fee', so take the reviews yelling out 'scamming me on move out!!!' with a grain of salt Previous manager Sheila just retired, with Taylor taking over now. From what I got speaking to her during that move out period she's pleasant and definitely capable and will keep the apartments running. Overall I recommend the place at my initial rent rate of 650$ for a 1B/1B in 2016.

Staffs are friendly. Close to HEB. Interior maintenance is not satisfactory. Complaints were never taken seriously many times.

Cons: The apartments are really old and the renovations typically consist of making the apartments look good on the outside. Once every couple of months, you'll encounter a pipe burst causing the water supply to get shut off for half a day. Pros: The staff is friendly and helpful, the rent is not very expensive . Also, this is probably the only location which appears on 2 separate bus routes to campus. Groceries are easy since its a 5 min walk to HEB.

These apartments are really really old. Some of the buildings are under renovation. However, they are renovating the outer facade only. Complaints are sometimes taken seriously and promptly. Staff in the office are welcoming.

I can't tell if my experience living at Scandia got better as my lease continued or if I just got used to how mediocre it is. Pros: Location to HEB, bus routes, cheapish, quiet neighborhood. Cons: Old, janky appliances and doors, flooding, maintenance sucks. My biggest problem was the staff. They often messed up my payments and bills. I was told there was another resident in my building by the exact same name, which I know is a lie and the Scandia team is just incompetent. There is a fee added to utilities to cover their "security lighting" which is around 30 extra dollars a month. Overall, it worked for me as a student but I was so motivated to get my degree so I'll never be forced to live in a place this mediocre ever again.

I have been a resident of Scandia for the last four years. The two major pros are its excellent location on the TAMU shuttle route with access to both route 26 and 27 and also its closeness to grocery (HEB) , restaurants, coffee places, parks etc. The rates are competitive and not unreasonably high. Compared to the above positives, the drawbacks outweigh them by quite a distance. The management (DTI properties) keeps on shuffling the employees between their various properties and hence there is no sense of responsibility or accountability whatsoever in the office staff. Each and every maintenance request takes about 3-4 business days to be attended to and that too after several trips to the office to remind them. The reply they give every time is "Since this is not an emergency maintenance, hence your complaint will be attended in the order in which it was received", except of course if you flood your house or burn it down triggering a major emergency. The emergency phone number (for weekends) is a joke. It is not manned or monitored at all. Any request put in the voicemail does not get to the request register at all. I learned this the hard way after having waited for them to come and then later finding out that they never received the request. The appliances, carpet and closets are either of poor quality or very old and hence very prone to frequent damages and need repairs. Every time you will have to go through the excruciating waiting period of 3 - 4 days. My personal record is almost 3 months which they took to replace one of the burners on my oven. So in conclusion, except the advantageous location your stay here will most likely be a bitter and wretched experience. Why did I linger for four years. Just to avoid the hassle of finding a new place and going through the herculean task of moving with all the furniture which involves endless packing, cleaning and what not. Probably not one of my better decisions in life.
