I moved in straight from the dorms thinking that it would be a good choice b/c of the supplied furniture & location near the stadium. After living there for a year, I now know how poorly it is managed. Routine maintenance is terribly slow & usually poorly done. The after-hours answering service is so terrible that it's not even worth calling. The UC will over charge you on everything they can, and frequently impose unnecessary costly fines. The frequent parties around the complex never really bothered me, but I can't even count the number of times I saw fist fights break out in the parking lot areas just as I was standing on my balcony. It was a total zoo at night. I understand that there are a lot of college students living there & some of it is inevitable, but the UC should really hire some type of security personnel on duty. Even when I take a look at the "good" reviews, it seems like it's just the management under fake names trying to bring up the rating. The management staff is completely nice and friendly, but when you bring a real concern to them or have any type of issue, they really don't address your issue, or even try. The front desk girls are not trained well, you can tell are at a loss for words & answers when you ask a question that isn't frequently asked. The internet connection is slow, & even the cable goes out frequently. During every finals week I was forced to go to the library to study b/c the internet connection (that is included in rent) is overloaded & crashed often. During the winter months, every parking lot in Manhattan would have the snow shoveled & cleared, salt on the ice...ect., except for the UC! My car had to be towed out of snow drifts twice, just being parked at the UC, because they didn't bother clearing anything. Overall, this is a terrible place to rent from, I definitely would not recommend it.
