The WORST place I have ever lived. Honestly I regret moving here more than words could ever describe. The management is awful, they make no attempts to be useful or kind. It's overpriced and although it looks "nice" it's gross. On the weekends there are drunken students actually passed out in the elevator, vomit in the halls, and trash left everywhere. There is no security whatsoever. The only thing The Marq cares about is your money so save yourself and find somewhere better.
This is the worst place I have ever lived. They couldn't be more unorganized or unprofessional. The apartment are furnished with cheap The staff are rude and have no idea what they are doing, you are better off saving your time, money, and sanity and finding a different place to live.
While a lot of things have changed nothing has been really fixed. While the rooms are comfortable, the heater and air vent working my problem lays mostly in management and their roommate matching. While you may have comfortable living quarters the roommate program is atrocious. I'm a non smoker, and allergic to cigarette smoke. Simply put I wrote down non smoker on my contract. My first 'roommate' that they had allowed in for what ever reason...did. Quickly after I was rather enraged to find out he was never supposed to be in the room and had smoked in the rooms. Management took over 2 weeks to 'move' him out even though he wasn't supposed to be in, and there was no smoke removal done to the room. I had to do it myself due to "no proof in him actually smoking in the apartment" ...even after a picture of the ashes by the toilet. Next up they pair me with three frats...three frats + a person who is not as outgoing as others and rather shy/quiet not to mention clean.... It just doesn't mix. I Deal with them getting drunk in the living quarters every night, loud music all day and the living/dining quarters are a complete and utter trash. I had wrote specifically on my application "I'm clean and quiet." Which brings me up to my next point, management. Noise complaints down to the front desk gets you no where but a "Talk it out" even though the contract/rules states otherwise. Most of the time nobody at the front desk or anybody for that matter knows what is going on or how to look anything up. Out of the entire staff I've met...I'd like to say 5 people (including the boss) out of the 13+ knows what is going on and can actually help you. On the weekend? Not a chance. Smoke Removal? I don't even think it exists to be honest. Changing rooms? Takes over a couple of months. Internet troubles? Seems like that will be happening every day...and at the moment I've been without internet for soon to be two days. Actually the entire building has except for a few people able to get on to slower then dial up connections. Nobody at the front desk knows what is going on apparently and can never say any helpful advice. In fact out of everybody at the front desk I've met for the past 3 months, only one have been helpful. I can finally say after my 12 month contract I'm getting out. While it may look nice on the exterior these two major problems destroyed my trust in them. Also...for those who get in or are in, you'll soon find out they cater to those who are new. Also thankyou...I enjoy having three drunks, screaming up and down the halls and living quarter every night. It was a "pleasant" experience...
Understandably so when I was looking for a safe and secure place to move my first year college son to in Milwaukee the 2040 lofts looked like the best bet. WRONG, none of the sticky sweet friendly words from the leasing agent were even close to the way of living that panned out over the next locked in 13 months. Aside from the shady neighborhood, they were cold, sterile, barely kept up and the personnel was less than accommodating in any way shape or form. I have endless stories of poor tenant service aside from the less than adequate office help. For the $1335 per month for this less than cozy cramped studio, I feel taken. Lesson learned, I am more than jubilant to move my son out this week and into a classy, clean, safe apartment for almost half the price and twice the living space. Beware, unless you are a Marquette student (it is on Marquette campus) and have ample college funds to throw away into living expenses, the 2040 Lofts are not for you!
I have had a great experience living at 2040 Lofts. When I initially signed in July, I had several concerns: I was not able to sign for a specific unit, was told I needed to wait to sign for parking, and had no written guarantee of living with my roommates, since we signed individual leases with no unit number listed. In a few weeks we received confirmation of our apartment unit. My roommates' rooms were ready to be moved into immediately. However, I was initially told I could not move in on the date I needed (early August) because they needed to clean from the previous tenant. Ultimately, they were able to get my room cleaned in time and I was able to move in on the date I requested. I was also able to sign for parking in August with no problems. Since moving in, I have not had any more issues. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Maintenance requests are responded to right away, and my emails have always been replied to within a few days. I have no complaints -- I live in the signature suites and have had no issues with noise, or problems with the apartment itself. I am not a Marquette student, but a young professional working in the Milwaukee. Since I moved from another state, being able to move into a fully furnished apartment saved me a lot of time and money. I appreciate having laundry on the same floor--- there is a card you can load so you don't even need to carry quarters. Also, the main building has a fitness center which is nice to have. In the past, I have always lived in older apartments, had to walk outside to access laundry, had issues with draft coming through the windows, etc. Overall, while the rent is higher than anywhere else I have lived, with all the amenities and convenience provided by living here I find it worth it.
