I've enjoyed living at Aspen so far this year. The houses are huge and there are tons of amenities. Any time I've submitted a maintenance request, they have it fixed in just a few hours. Most of the office staff is very friendly and helpful when I have questions. I don't plan on moving anytime soon.

I lived in this complex for three years and it flashy facade significantly declined over that time. It started with finding a checklist of what company had the most amenities, and how much space could we find. Aspen Heights does a great job of providing many quality amenities and (sometimes) fun events. There are many issues right under the topical attraction to living here. The building quality is very poor from the quality of construction, HVAC efficiency to regular inconveniences of things like light switch positioning. Summers on the second floor can be brutally hot and make AC out of scale. The main water line out of the kitchen was not properly installed causing it to become out of line and spill drainage in the cabinets. Maintenance (Zach) is great but he is not supplied properly causing delays in fixes. Management seems to get many things wrong even as it has changed over the years. Emails are sent out incorrectly or not at all. Staff once tweeted obscenities from the business account believing it was his own. I assume they have accumulated more debt than expected due to housing unsavory folks the first two years and subsequent empty units later. The issue is they continue to spend on completely unnecessary giveaways, raffles, and events that are generally underwhelming to attend. I would tell them to stop buying food trucks for a day, or giving away smoothies on instagram, hiring pestering security, along with other frivolous propaganda that earns them minimal points with residents and doesn't attract new leasers. Spend the money to fix or at least maintain exercise equipment, to have the pool open at regular intervals, or replace common area light bulbs. They seem to have a short term way to pull you in with flashy giveaways. I understand that a lot of places do this but the others are backed by quality establishments. Another gap in their management is ability to account for post lease termination fees. After three years there is normal wear and tear on carpet, that was sanitized with a carpet cleaner (for which I have photographic evidence), yet still needed to be replaced. The problem lies in the fact there was obvious damage to other parts of the house which seemed to be completely ignored. I am willing to pay what is rightfully my fault, but the gap in the fact pattern shows that they could not even properly evaluate the condition of a living space. Some may ask why would I live there for so long if I did not like it? Well that had more to do with who I wanted to live with, the convenience of not having to move out, and having the furniture package I would have had to probably furnish a new place, only to use it one year. All in all, this place COULD be a great place to live if you still want to live off campus. It is probably not going to get better with all the new housing around the downtown area. Unless they cut prices massively to fill seats, which I suspect will happen. Last thing is, go check it out for yourself and really look at what you're getting for your money.

Aspen Heights has been a great place to live! They really impressed me and my friends on our tour, and when we moved into our three bedroom last year it definitely lived up to our expectations. The staff has been really friendly and any questions I've had I always get a quick response when I email them. Aspen definitely has the biggest houses I've seen for students, and the community has a great vibe. Couldn't recommend it more!

I love living at aspen heights! I just resigned for my third year here -- and got an amazing price. The rooms are huge, private bathrooms, huge living area, and if you get it furnished the furniture that it comes with is pretty nice. The office is always more than willing to help you work through any issues. The maintenance requests are so easy and once you submit one, it is completed in a very timely manner. The amenities are great: pool, workout rooms, study rooms, free printing, etc. Also very pet friendly!! My dog and cat both love it here. I couldn't imagine having them stuck in a small apartment so the huge house sizes that aspen gives are perfect! Over all i've had a great experience with aspen heights. The only downfall is the utilities during the winter months, however mine truly haven't been that bad so far this year.

I moved to Aspen In October and the staff was very friendly and attentive. They made sure that I was happy with the house and room I was moving into. I was nervous since I was moving in the middle of the semester but they made sure the carpet and room were clean. Since then, anytime I have a maintenance request submitted it gets done the same day and it is also really nice to have a shuttle that goes to and from campus. Overall, I had an enjoyable experience here and will be resigning for next year.

This is my second year living at Aspen Heights and I could not have chose a better place to live my junior and senior year of college. The houses are very spacious and allow for a lot of room. I love closet and bedroom space and furniture provided as well. It's like a little community with a gym and pool and everything! I highly reccomend!

After a largely positive living experience here, I was charged over $500 upon moving out for replacing the carpet in my bedroom. For background, I signed for the place "as-is" and marked on the move-in sheet that the carpet was already damaged. I was also told I would not be charged for this. As of right now, Aspen Heights will not respond to my emails and will not provide any answers over the phone. It is clear that this has happened to quite a few people this year. I will amend this review if it gets resolved, but this has been an incredible hassle already. There are better places to live for the price that have a competent staff. Amended (8/24/17): They removed the charges from my move-out statement for carpeting and wall paint, both of which were like that upon move-in. They opted to leave the charges for bathroom cleaning. Although I cleaned the bathroom prior to move out and deemed it to be satisfactory, I decided not to argue this charge, as it was only $20. I have amended my original review to be 3 stars from the previous 1 star.

Despite what you have heard, this place is simply the best place to live in Columbia, MO. I started living at Aspen in 2014 and I have already re-signed my lease for another year. I'll break it down, I lived 2 years at Campus lodge in College: nothing but parties 24/7 and people continually lighting fireworks until 3 am until September. During my time there, there was a shooting, and the contracted painting company was involved in theft. I would know, since it happened in my unit and I reported it. The demographic is mainly sophomores who don't know too much about off-campus living and are still not focused enough in school. After I left the over priced campus lodge, I lived another two years in some town homes near Rockbridge High school (South Providence). I didn't want to pay for amenities but with that, I also gave up some security. There were multiple break-ins on my culdesac and a too many sketchy people rolling around at night. I've never lived in North Columbia, but when I partied in my undergrad, they were almost always out in that direction. Again, tons of partying and a few big group fights just from the few weekends spent over there; not my cup of tea. Now let's talk about Aspen. The staff there has always been so helpful, and more importantly, attentive. I had a key issue once, and it was fixed that same day. The maintenance crew are amazing and are diligent when fixing things inside your home. Aspen is pretty strict on crazy partying with hefty fines, and I'm okay with that. It is a gated community so that offers a lot of peace of mind as well. It's cool to see little kids walk to the bus stop in the morning or to see a family walk their dog around the area. Kind of feels like home. The demographic is still mainly college students, but they seem more responsible then young ones in other living places. Yeah I heard the rumors that Aspen was worse than Gotham city but I took that risk. And I'm glad that I did. The radiant housing units, swimming pool, and the entire property outshine other living quarters in Columbia, MO. I haven't had any major problems thus far (3 years) and I sincerely doubt that you will either.

As with any large housing in Columbia Missouri, you take the good with the bad. Yes Aspen has had it's fair share. However, overall they offer so many wonderful amenities for the residents. This is year two for my son and things have settled down, new management is much more on top and is proactive, that I appreciate as a mom. It truly is a beautiful well kept housing and there is full time on property security. If you dig deep enough you will find bad everywhere. I'm glad my son had the opportunity to be a part of Aspen Heights.

Honestly, this is the best living environment I have ever had. I have plenty of space for me and my cat. I absolutely love the pool and fitness center. I don't think I could be this happy anywhere else in Columbia. The security is tight so I always feel safe and the staff at the club house are always available if I need anything at all.

In regards to all of the negative views from the last leasing term, the majority of the problems have been fixed from what I can tell. You can't say that Aspen Heights has a crime problem anymore because all of Columbia is kind of in a crime slump lately. There are two security guards living on the AH campus, and I've never felt scared or uneasy here. I live alone, so that's a pretty big statement. The apartments are super spacious and the furniture is of good quality. I had a problem with my sink when I first moved in, so I sent in a maintenance request. They fixed the problem within two hours of my request. Good experience so far!
