Every time I call to inquire about the facility, the staff has been extremely helpful. The past few times Ive called, Ive spoken to Alex who stopped everything to help me in any way he possibly could. Hes incredibly helpful and knowledgeable and was able to answer every single one of my questions. I wish there was someone like him at every apartment complex I call.

The staff at UH is very professional. They were very helpful in solving a room assignment issue we had. They jumped right on the issue and resolved it after working very diligently. They reply quickly to questions and are very helpful. I'm thankful for their good work.

This place is OK. Be prepared to clean on move-in day. My window was messed up and closet doors were broken. All of our bathrooms (4bed/4bath) and the kitchen had roaches upon moving in. The vent on our microwave fell off within a week; no one will come fix it. Air was broken multiple times. We would put in a maintenance request and they would send an email later saying it was done, but they never came. Now the air just runs constantly (hiking our electric bill) even though the temperature is already below what it's set at. Security guy is beyond rude and just a pest (he's brought cops to our door for being "too loud" while we were watching TV; you can tell the cops hate him). They charged us $40 for a broken fridge drawer that was broken when we moved in. Our dryer doesn't work unless you have the heat on medium, and even that's iffy. Internet goes out sometimes, but not often. It's nice having a pool, but it's rarely clean and they locked one of the gates so sometimes it's not even worth walking all the way around the building to get in. Good luck parking on your floor in the garage during the school year. Good luck even getting to the building during baseball season!!! They block several roads off, and you can't have guests because they let people park on the street (this goes on for several months for several nights a week). The rooms are a decent size. Your unit will be NOTHING like the model. They give you broken dorm furniture which I'm waiting for them to charge us for. Needless to say, it's been a long year, and we're ready to move, but I'm not mad at it. They get away with a lot just for the location. Oh, and the rates???? LOL. I've done a lot of complaining, but overall it hasn't been completely miserable.

Visited a friend here and just had to write a review! I loved the property and location, right across from regions field ? Amazing ! Not to mention the outstanding and friendly staff who was there to help, although I wasn't a resident. Also the property was clean, which surprised me since majority of the residents are students. Word of my friend, she loves the property and maintenance request are completed professionally and in a timely manner.

Great property led by an outstanding staff. Every time I was in need of something, I was met with superb customer service that left me to direct all my stress to work alone. Love this place!

So proud to call this place home. I absolutely love the community feel of the property. Plus, it's right down town literally next to the two things I love most- baseball (Regions field) and beer (Good People Brewing Co.). Would definitely recommend this place! The management makes sure that you're well taken care of and all the essentials (gym, clubhouse, pool) are right downstairs!

I was in town visiting a friend that just moved here...and I had to leave a review. Even though I was just a guest, the office staff was so accommodating. The fitness center and business lounge were great - overall it was fantastic experience.

I toured UH with my sister upon her moving to Birmingham for school. Its four blocks from campus - a five minute walk. Its affordable (everything except the electricity bill is included) and the staff is great! I would definitely recommend living here to any college student!

University House is by far the nicest, safest apartment complex I have stayed in! It's reasonably affordable compared to most of the housing options there is in downtown Birmingham. The management, the leasing staff, maintenance crew, and the security officers work hard to accommodate the residents needs and go above and beyond every single time. I am glad to call UH my home while attending one of the best colleges for nursing school!

I have lived here for the past two years (moving out in July), and in the time we have been residents here we have had many issues. Our kitchen floor has a crack that sinks in the ground that we reported when we moved in that has yet to be fixed. Our air conditioning has broke at least 20 times, and each time they come to fix it, it breaks within the next few weeks. On the last room inspection they did, we were all of the sudden charged for dirty carpet (which have been dirty since we moved in), and a crack on the butter dish in the fridge. I also have water damage on my ceiling that causes leaking when it rains. I reported this issue to maintenance, and nothing has been done. Last year there was a raise in rent, and we also had to pay our own electric, but with the increase in rent nothing has been done to really improve the complex. I think if someone was in desperate need of housing I would recommend UH Birmingham, but I would most likely only suggest it as a last resort. With that being said other amenities such as the pool, and clubhouse are nice.

University House has gone above and beyond to meet my expectations. The staff is always more than willing to help and the maintenance is quick to respond. The gate controlled entrances and onsite security officer help me feel safe in downtown Birmingham. The amenities here are phenomenal, from the resort style swimming pool, fitness center, tanning bed, and beautiful courtyard. University House is by far the cheapest and closest to campus. If you are looking for the best in student housing I would definitely recommend living here. UH gets 5 stars from me. :)

I have lived at UH for a semester. The leasing office staff and maintenance is wonderful. After filing a report about my door not locking properly maintenance showed up instantly to fix. UH keeps the property fairly clean. My apartment was in perfect condition when I moved in. Parking in the deck is definitely worth $35/mo because you are always granted a spot even during game days. Although, the security guard is very rude to the residents and threatens to write you up even though have not done anything wrong. Overall my experiences at UH have been GREAT!

Pros & Cons (I recommend for a junior or senior in college) Pros: Price is honestly great for a downtown apartment since you're paying per bedroom rather than the whole thing Close to campus All inclusive Sometimes fast maintenance Furnished Occasional free food Cons: Parking is $35/mo If you don't have parking then you're forced to find street parking...in downtown Birmingham...right next to the baseball field (imagine parking on game day) Security guard is harassing and annoying to residents Trash builds up occasionally Occasional break-ins (twice a semester, so not horrible but not great either) Price is debatable- mathematically you're spending around $550 for a four bedroom apartment ($2200/mo if rent wasn't split) you can easily pay the same for a nicer 2 bedroom apartment in homewood

I have lived for a semester and will definitely say the highlight of the apartment are the staff. The company I am not too found of how they run things or how they don't make proper accommodations for students but I will definitely say the staff makes the living experience a lot better. The hall ways need to be redone because they look like a trap house but other than that it is a pretty decent place to live.

This is my daughters first year living in UHB Apartments. It is true about the bugs. It may be due to the weather change. They do spray once a week. The rent is reasonable and it is not far from the campus.

Great dorm style, off campus housing. Parking garage and security on site. The UAB transit makes stops here.

Not the nicest or cleanest apartments I've seen but definitely within the typical budget of a college student looking to leave campus for freedom and still have roommates.

I have been a resident for 2 years going on 3 and I am happy living here. I am a college student and this is perfect off campus living while still being close enough to walk to campus. UH staff does a good job making a very friendly college student community by holding frequent events and times to allow everyone to meet and greet. Also is a nice place place to live affordable. I am happy.

The staff is extremely friendly & helpful. The rooms are nicer than any of the dorms I've stayed in, and spacious. It doesn't hurt, either, that I save a little money living here rather than the dorms. & the price is a lot better than many other apartment buildings.

I have lived here at University house for about a year. It has been a pretty good living experience. Although I am not here often the time I spend here is pretty great. The view of the city is great and in walking distance to good people. Great place to live.

Review from May 2015 Great living area, balcony/porch is wonderful. Fits my simple needs; after getting everything set up, internet has had no problems, cable has had no problems, heat, water, electricity, no issues. The talk of it being a "Dangerous community" isn't really valid; there is record or a robbery recent to when I wrote this review; that robbery only occurred because the victim LET THE ROBBERS IN HIS HOME WILLINGLY. There is little chance of anything happening while you are in the building with all the security measures taken. Just like any apartment ANYWHERE in central Birmingham; if you want to be safe, you just have to be smart. If you don't like noise, get a house. It is a mainly-college age apartment complex with great amenities such as a pool and lounge; so if you expect absolute silence at night, or no parties, or anything like that, you aren't getting that here. If you are a normal college student that likes an active community, doesn't mind noise, and likes lots of free amenities, this is the place for you.

I have had a generally positive experience living in these apartments. It is a great option for someone looking to transition from the dorms or for someone who has no roommate options. Most of my negative experiences were personal, dealing with my roommates. However if you are placed on the side of the leasing office, you will not get a real balcony. Maintenance is pretty good at getting requests done in a timely manner. The price is incredibly high for four people sharing a room, but if your other option is living on your own, it's not a bad price. It's the perfect beginner apartment but if you are a student who pays your own bills without any help from your parents, good luck.

Dangerous neighborhood but the apartments are great. It is not near from UAB but also not far, it is easy to go by foot, only 10 minutes walking. A lot of people complain about noises and parties but if your room is not in front of the pool you will be fine. Actually I love my apartment.
