Arches Apartments is a great college apartment living experience. The maintenance manager, Terry, is on top of things and always answers any problems you have quickly and efficiently. Kailyn, the manager, is always very understanding and answers any questions you have quickly. The living room space is big, and the set-up of the bathrooms is perfect. The kitchen is a little tight and the parking lot is at a slight angle, but you get used to it quickly.

I've lived here for 10 months now and definitely have had a mix of experiences. To start off with the bad. CONS: - The first 2ish months, the management was partnered with SimpleBills, which is the most idiotic and inefficient method of paying one's bills. However, the management was receptive to complaints and broke the contract early. - My unit was located on the half-basement floor. Thus, the humidity was always very high. The unit was automatically furnished with a de-humidifier, but that becomes almost useless when the bin is filling up within 30 minutes and the electric bill comes back doubled. - Due to the humidity, our unit always had a problem with moths. When I first moved in, it took about an hour to clean up all the dead moths in the toilet, in the cabinet, on the floors, etc etc. They finally seemed to have vanished in April/May for whatever reason - good riddance. - The first month or two, my roommate and I were getting flea bites. Thankfully, the problem resolved on its own without the need for an exterminator. However, following soon after, I started getting bug bites all over my body. (I suspect carpenter ants). However, moving my bed away from the window fixed this issue as well. - Because of its prime location next to the bars, you will be exposed to random drunken shrieks and annoying shouts late into the night. I have been woken up several times due to this, but it's to be expected. - The building manager is often non-responsive, not in the office, and is quite slow in drawing up papers. She is friendly enough, but always seems to have an excuse as to why nothing is getting done. - For SOME reason, all of my complex neighbors on my floor appeared to be loud frat boys. While I didn't have a direct problem with most, there would be random slamming of doors and obnoxious yelling in the hallway. - Out heater was super inefficient, and oftentimes just felt like it was pushing out lukewarm air. Thankfully, we didn't have to deal with spiking temperatures because being half-basement already provided enough insulation. - Parking can be annoying. The parking lot is tight, which makes it a pain when you have to back out because there are no available slots open. Thankfully, there is plenty of street parking near the apartment. However, I had to opt for the parking garage during Grand Prix week. PROS: - Maintenance is great. You can call Terry for any maintenance issues and he will pick up and try to fix the problem as soon as possible. He is very friendly and usually very responsive. - Thicker walls. I've experienced the pain of living in apartments with extremely thin walls. So I greatly appreciated this apartment's padding. I could still hear my upstairs neighbors if they were jumping or yelling or playing loud bass, but usually, it was very quiet. - Location. Seriously, it's an about 3-5 minute walk to the bars. It almost seems a bit of a waste that I didn't go out as much as I could have! - Ample space for the price. Our living room is the biggest living room I have ever had in an apartment. It was a good deal, especially for the price of our rent. - Good initial impression of main management. While you won't ever really interact with the main managers of CPM, they were very warm and friendly when we first met them. Perhaps that's to be expected when they're trying to sell you their apartments, but having met some rude managements, it was an appreciated gesture. Overall, this is a nice place and a nice location. It is not perfect by any means, but it felt more comfortable and quiet than my previous two apartments on campus.

Everything was really nice in the 2 bedroom apartment. Good security and maintenance guy was awesome. The deposit at the beginning when signing with the apartment was much higher than what they originally said and they took $300 at the end of the lease for cleaning and painting...a lot of money for that.

This is a great first apartment for anyone looking to jump from campus housing, like I and my 3 roommates did. We've lived here for 2 years. Everything has progressively gotten better, including management and maintenance. We recently had a dryer break, and they repaired it within 24 hours. My only real issue is the size of our rooms in the 4-person apartments. I believe 2/4 rooms were once closets back in the day that got converted into regular rooms, given that the light switch is on the outside of the room. You really have to learn to consolidate and organize your stuff. Parking is a little strange given that the spots are angled towards the blocked side of each lot, so you have to do a 120 degree turn into and out of your parking spot. This isn't anything worth getting upset about. If you have a larger car, parking on the side of the buildings is an option. JR's patrols the lot at night and is very swift at removing people who park there without a permit, which is nice for the residents who need (and pay for) those spots. Guests can park for free in unregulated street parking. A/C and heat work really well. In the fall and early spring we open the windows and screen door, which creates a good breeze in the unit.

I first moved into the Arches II in August 2012 under the management of Sharlene and loved it. Sharlene was in her office most of the time to accommodate you, and if she wasn't she would answer her cell. Throughout the course of my lease, the management changed and so did the living environment at the Arches. The new manager is incredibly difficult to get a hold of (never in the office, never replies to emails, and never calls back) and is rude to the residents. Our apartment has had continuous issues with ants and the new management waited 2 weeks after notification to submit a work order. Overall the apartments and location is nice, but there should definitely be some changes in management. If you're looking to live in this apartment complex I would warn you to keep all of your leasing and payment records.

I lived at Arches II, the four-bedroom apartment bldg, for two years. I absolutely loved it. The landlord, Sharlene, and maintenance man, Mike, are wonderful and very kind. I've dealt with two other landlords at Purdue and those don't even come close to the level of working with the people at the Arches. Sharlene throws about two parties a semester with her wonderful homemade cooking and is she is like your Mom away from home. It is extremely clean and any issues you may have are taken care of before you know it. I highly recommend living here. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else in West Lafayette.
