It's okaysubmitted by Adena M. - |Recommended: NoThey need to allow parking passes for visitors --parking is limited and neighbors above you are extremely noisy. The walls are very thin.

Decent community, Unprofessional staff.submitted by Stephane E. - |Recommended: NoWhile the commmunity appearance is fairly well maintained, the staff is very unprofessional. Calls are not returned, messages are ignored. At my last renewal, we signed the paperwork in the office. The property manager was not there at the time. As a result, we had to come back to pick up our copies, while they could have simply sent someone and drop it at our door. I would not recommend to friends relatives.
response from property -Stephane, we are sorry to hear of your dissatisfaction with your home. We thank you for leaving this feedback as it will help us improve going forward. A member of our staff will be in touch with you to discuss other areas we can improve to make the renewal process as simple as possible. Sincerely, Lerner Management
Great location and quiet neighborhoodsubmitted by Frances C. - |Recommended: YesWe have been here 3 years and the parking is the biggest issue and enforced towing is a major turnoff. We happen to have handicap placards but so do 4 other vehicles in our area. My vehicle was parked in the handicap space about 2 weeks ago and someone broke into the vehicle just to steal the placard, so when to tow guy came through they towed it because the placard was not displayed. Now they took the time to take pictures and all but still towed me. Needless to say, 500 later I'm still livid.
response from property -Frances, we sincerely thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. It sounds like overall you are happy with the community, however, we have some room for improvement. We can understand how frustrating your experience was with the placard and sorry to hear this happened. A member of our team will be in touch with you shortly. Thank you for bringing these items to our attention. Sincerely, Lerner Management

Squeaking Floorsubmitted by Nimfa P. - |Recommended: YesI went to the office to request that they remind our neighbors upstairs to refrain from making loud squeaking sounds on the floor by their footsteps walking back and forth directly up our bedroom every night which starts at around 11 00 p.m. up to about 1 00 a.m. but nothing happened in fact it became worst because before I reported it to the office the people upstairs doesn't have a dog yet, but now they don't just have a dog but two dogs that contribute to the noise that they are creating. After sometime, about two months later just four days ago I even emailed the office to complain the same problem but until now I haven't received any response much less action on this matter. I told them that the floor is creating a loud squeaking sound and maybe, just maybe they fix it to eliminate the annoying sound. We can also hear the sound of their conversation. It seems the apartment is not sound proof. The worst thing here is it is sleeping time and at this juncture we are already sound asleep and we are being awakened by the loud squeaking sound. Just imagine we have to go to work early in the morning not having a good sound sleep. All of us need peace and quiet environment
response from property -Nimfa, thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We can only imagine how frustrating this must be. We are currently working with the team to see how this can be addressed to improve your experience. A member of our team will be in touch soon. We appreciate your patience as we work together to find a solution. Sincerely, Lerner Management
Very Nice Place to Livesubmitted by Deirdre H. - |Recommended: YesI love were I live right now, I'm not afraid to walk my dog at night or come in late from an late outing at night. very nice community, very quiet, The only problem I have with noice the people above me, it's like they don't have enough padding under their carpet, so I hear them a lot walking around, but it may be that they are just heavy walkers. The people who work in the office are nice. Porsche who help me was the best ever. I would give her 5 stars anytime.
response from property -Deirdre, we could not be happier to hear your excitement for your home and community. We will also be sure to thank the office team and specifically Portia for going above and beyond.

My 4 Months Living at University Squaresubmitted by Pamela R. - |Recommended: YesI really love living at University Square. The apartment is spacious, the grounds are kept up and the staff members are very professional. The only thing that I don't like is when the main door to our apartment is broken by others. This has occurred at least 3 times since I've been living here. I really feel secure in my building but not so secure when this happens. Maybe there should be another method in securing the locked door. At the moment there has been a screw in our door for almost a week.
response from property -Pamela, we sincerely thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are thrilled to hear how much you love your spacious apartment home and staff in the office. We are happy to hear that your Community Manager has touched base with you and resolved your concerns and the door is now fixed. We will be keeping a closer eye on the door to try and understand why this is a reoccurring issue. Thank you for calling Lerner University Square your home! Sincerely, Lerner Management

Overall, a nice place to live.submitted by Maria R. - |Recommended: YesThe grounds are well kept, the maintenance staff is good. d of The office staff overall is professional and helpful. I am not to found of the pre-dated memos that you receive 24 hours before a, filter change etc. if your lucky. If you can send out a pool party notice a week in advance, why can't I get a filter change notice a week in advance

Nice Safe Communitysubmitted by Tasha K. - |Recommended: YesI have enjoyed my stay at University Square Apts. I have no complaints regarding staff or maintenance. The property is very clean and updated. I personally have not had issues parking even late evenings. However, rent is getting pricy.

Great place but need some tweakssubmitted by Anna-Kay C. - |Recommended: YesI honestly like the property. The neighborhood is very quiet and seems pretty safe. Parking is horrible though especially for your guests. I don't think there is sufficient parking and often find myself parking several buildings from my apartment. I can hear every single step my neighbor makes above me and it's been 2 months that they claim they're trying to get the neighbor to move and add reinforcement. Overall its a good property but they just need to make a few tweaks and things will be okay.
response from property -Anna-Kay, Thank you for the great review! Your community manager will be in touch with you shortly to try to identify and address each of your concerns regarding the parking issues you've encountered. Please feel free to reach out to her directly at dhairston@Lerner.com any time in order for us to quickly address your questions. We look forward to speaking with you and improving your overall experience. Sincerely, Lerner Management.
