I currently live here- sophomore at UK. I moved in with one of my friends and someone we met online through a rommate finder program. That's one downside to the complex- they won't match roommates for you. If you try to lease a 3-bedroom, you must have 3 occupants, or compensate for the price of the unoccupied room. The staff is extremely helpful. The office is almost always open when I need it to be, and everything is fairly straighforward as far as applying. They pay heat, water, AC; everything except internet. My rent seems reasonable. The apartments themseves are actually fairly well kept up- I only had any complaints about the condition of the balcony, which I never go out on anyway. Upsides: 1) Across the street from campus. It's amazing for getting to classes on time. I dont own a car, so for me this was necessary. 2) Behind Speedway. If you need any food last-minute, but don't want to drive to the store, it's extremely convenient. 3) They give you opportunities to reduce rent through having your apartment be a "show" apartment. 4) Very forgiving with late payments (or so I've heard). 5) Allowed to paint the walls, and they provide you with the original wall color paint so you can just paint over your work when you move out. 6) Generally med school housing, so not too many loud parties go on. Downside: 1) It. Is. So. Loud. Being across from the hospital, sirens are going all day and night. The garbage truck comes on Monday at like 8am. Cars honk at the light right outside the complex. Car alarms go off in the parking garage next door. If you live here, buy a fan. Leave it on. 2) Very bright. Definitely get black-out curtains, because the streelights, lights from the parking lot outside the gas station, and hospital lights will keep you up for a long time. My curtains have been wonderful. 3) Bedrooms are kind of small, so moving furniture could be difficult. Also finding places to store books, etc. 4) The stairs to get to upper levels are steep, tight, and inconvenient for carrying any furniture. You might as well hire some movers, because carrying a couch up there is practially a death-wish. Overall, if you come prepared for the space, it's a very convenient and practical place to live. Moving is difficult, but you only have to do it twice ever, so I wouldn't use that as your only reason for not leasing.
I currently live here and it is a convient walk to class everyday. This apartment complex is filled with students related to healthcare so there are no loud parties. The manager is very friendly and I have never had a problem with her. The overall apartments are small but rent is cheap (all utilities included)
