Great location for students- very easy to walk to campus and to midtown. The staff is extremely accommodating and friendly. Best experience I've had dealing with apartment complex management in my 4 years in Gainesville. Overall great place to live.

We lived in the big orange and blue building right next to the office for a couple of years around 2010. This was a while ago, so take it with a grain of salt, but I felt compelled to comment because of all the overwhelmingly positive reviews.

This was, without a doubt, the worst place we have ever lived. By far. Literally the only thing going for it was location, but even that proved problematic when bars let out and hordes of absolutely plastered people ran around yelling right below your apartment at 2am. Oh, and the walls were very solid. I don't think we ever heard our neighbors.

Great location, fair prices, very friendly staff. The service guys are pretty good at getting work orders done quickly and cant beat the free coffee and food. Being able to walk to midtown on the weekend is the cherry on top!

Living here has been one of the best choices I made in my collegiate career. Being able to walk to class or hustle home when I forgot something has made my life so much easier. I could host group projects after class, or a little get together before going out. Even though I'm only in a studio, its plenty of space for me and company. I'm looking forward to another great year here at College Park and I know this whole new office staff is going to make sure of it!

If you are thinking about moving here, please please reconsider.

But wow. Just wow. The management was almost completely unresponsive to "requests" (i.e., contractually obligated commitments). For instance, I am pretty sure (could be wrong, not a contractor) that there is no insulation in this building. I don't mean a small amount, I mean none. The big sliding glass doors might look alright, but they leaked air constantly. Similarly, AC/heat units were effectively windows you couldn't close -- you could literally see through them to the outside. Unfortunately, the heating portion of the wall unit (only one of the two units produced heat) in our apartment effectively did not work. So, when there was a slight cold snap, our apartment dropped to below 50 degrees indoors even with the heat on full blast all day long. Our chinchillas loved it (they are mountain animals that thrive in the cold), but our puppy wouldn't stop shivering. We had to huddle in front of our toaster oven for warmth. This is a gross violation of tenants rights. We contacted the office multiple times a day, every day, for 3 days. They could not care less until I went to the office and made a scene in front of potential future renters (which was also the only way to get them to clean the absolutely disgustingly filthy apartment we received upon move-in). They finally got us a space heater, which still didn't do enough, but at least they finally tried. When we huddled next to it, my puppy stopped his uncontrollable shivering. In retrospect I should not have dropped the issue there, but we had to take what we could get.

That wasn't the only event that ever occurred, but it probably was the worst. I feel it is an illustrative example of the attitude that management had toward the building and us as tenants. No matter how bad it gets anywhere that we have lived since, we always tell ourselves at least it isn't that terrible college park apartment.
