5-Star Rating Review

         Wonderful community of people! Management is helpful and respectful, staff is welcoming and overall and awesome group of people! There are so many fantastic renovations happening, especially the gym. An addition I would like to add is how quick the maintenance staff is, put in a request and the next day it was completed. Definitely recommend living here!"

5-Star Rating Review

         I’ve lived here for 7 months and I’ve enjoyed it! I enjoy the amenities such as the pool, the student center (that supplies a printer, computers, coffee, etc), the shuttle to USC campus, and the 24-hour gym. As a student, living here has made everything simple and readily available. The units themselves are very spacious, and I enjoy having my own bathroom and walk-in closet. Overall, I love it here!"
