I wish I could give 2.5 stars because I would recommend this place for some people, but not others. I just moved out after 2 years, and there are PROS and CONS. I'll start with the PROS: Rent is cheap for the amount of space you get, it's very close to campus, safe, ample living space, they respond to maintenance issues very quickly, and I never once had a problem with parking.
The CONS: They are old apartments which means they are falling apart. No matter how clean you get your living space, it will always have that old, musty feel to it. The managers respond very quickly to maintenance issues but they always do things as cheaply as possible. During the summer you will have to run your A/C literally non-stop everyday because of how old and cheap their A/C units are, and it still won't ever feel cold so your energy bill will skyrocket (so take that into consideration with rent). During the winter you will have to run the heater all day or just put up with the cold. While the complex is safe, it's more due to location rather than anything the complex managers have done. Also, don't expect to get 100% of your security deposit back. The managers will take out payment for a maid and a painter, and you won't be able to do anything about it. I wouldn't even put that much effort into cleaning when you move out because they will find anything to give them reason to hire "professional cleaning" as they called it.
So in the end, I would recommend this place only for single students who can tolerate less than perfect living spaces. I wouldn't put more than 2 people in any unit either because they don't have any units with more than one bathtub. With 3 or more people that could get nasty.
