It is very convenient to USC. However because of it's location it is pricey if you want an apartment without any roommates. Currently the gym and clubhouse are not open, so that can be pretty annoying since we haven't had access to the gym for a while now. They said it should be done by the end of this month (we shall see- will update this review when finished). We like the staff and maintenence, both have responded in a timely and helpful manner to any issues.

Generally ok location- close to city, park, baseball stadium. Staff and maintenance generally slow and incompetent. Apartments vastly overpriced, as is the case with most student housing in this area. I would suggest trying to find a house to rent, or looking for an apartment that doesn't solely cater to students. You'll get a better value, more respect, and won't have to deal with general apathy towards any issues you might have while living here, which will be abundant because, and I can't stress this enough, the only time they will act like they care is when they think they can rope you into leasing an apartment that would be an insult to anything you know about architecture, design, construction, and general cleanliness.

Lived here last year and it was mostly terrible. I got fines for leaving a trash bag by my fromt door for 20 minutes before I left the apartment to take trash out about 3-4 times and they refused to take them back. My closet flooded every time it rained and theyd come to fix the problem only to have it happen every time. This led to bed bugs all along the corners of my closet wall. The apartment itself was a good size and good location but its dirty, run under poor management, and maintenance was never effective. Definitely not worth the money.

This complex isn't terrible, but there are better, cheaper options around here for sure. The main problem I have with this place is the feeling of uncleanliness and safety. While the VIP upgrades are beautiful to the eye, the actual apartment units are old and have a poor feel to them, even though they may be visually appealing. For example, I do not trust the water here. Sometimes it comes out cloudy, sometimes it comes out yellow, and sometimes there are weird black specks that come out of it. Maintenance has since fixed the "black speck" problem, and they are amazing people, so I absolutely do not blame them, but I just feel like the complex is so old, there is only so much they can do. Also, the water tends to leave rust stains everywhere. There are rust stains in both toilets of my 2x2 that were not there when I moved in, and my white bathmat just outside of my shower is constantly turning a rusty brown color if I get it wet with the shower water. This does not happen due to regular dirt, as I have another identical bathmat under my sink, which does not ever get wet, and it stays clean. I have to wash that mat constantly, as well as clean the toilets, or else the stains will reappear. The bathrooms constantly have a "dirty pipe" smell, almost like mold. It's so strong that I have to keep the bathroom door closed or the entire place will smell like an old, mildew-y bathroom. No matter how much I clean, I just feel like the pipe lines or something relating to the water just is not right. Many of my silverware and pans will form rust after using the dishwasher, which never happened using the same utensils in other dishwashers such as at my parent's house. It's genuinely concerning because I feel as if something in the water could be bad for my own health. I feel uncomfortable showering. Speaking of pipes, the kitchen sink does not have a garbage disposal, which is extremely annoying when trying to do dishes. You don't realize how much of a luxury a disposal is until you have to scrape old pasta out of a drain with a dirty spoon. I keep my apartment as pristine as possible, as I want to feel clean, but no matter how much cleaning I do, there is always an odd smell in the air. It's almost musty, like something dirty is in the air vents. Overall, it's just a dirty feeling environment and I cannot feel settled here no matter how much I try. There is also a cockroach problem. It was much worse when I first moved in, but I do still see the occasional bug. I fear it'll get worse again as the weather warms up. Also, taking out the trash is pretty annoying if your unit is far from the dumpster. There are no "big trash cans" outside your unit where you can collect all your trash before being able to wheel it over there. I think that would be a nice improvement to fix this issue! Otherwise, you either collect trash bags all over your apartment or you're forced to go to the dumpster very often. Unit wise, it could be a hit or a miss. You could get a unit in a "cozy spot" facing some pretty greenery, or you could be like me and get a unit right next to the stairs that faces the parking lot. The problem with this is that it's loud hearing everyone going up and down the stairs, and everyone can see you on your balcony, so it's not exactly private. Also, your view is a lot less desirable than looking at bright green trees and grass. Anyway, I do think the staff I've met so far has been great, especially Jeremiah. I think they've been as helpful as possible, at least in my personal experience. I just feel like this place can only get "so" good... and it's not worth the money. It's close to campus, but so are a lot of other complexes. I appreciate the staff here, maintenance and office, but I just don't feel comfortable enough here to want to stay after this school year. OH - and one last thing, there is a train that runs directly alongside many of the apartment buildings. I was lucky and got one of those! So, almost every night I am woken up by what sounds like a train horn right inside my bedroom. Be cautious of that!

This apartment complex is okay. From the time I moved in this past August, things were a mess. I took over someone's lease mid-summer after I found out that I didn't get into the school I wanted to transfer to. I needed a place and had liked the apartment complex when I toured it. Though I signed the lease, my name was not switched over on documents for over a month. I was not signed up on any email list and had to contact the office repeatedly in order to get important information like the roommate assignment and documents to have filled out for move in. After a lot of confusing communication, I was at first told I would be by myself in an apartment in the 700 building. A few weeks later, I was told that I had a roommate and I began talking with her. I got my insurance and everything settled for that address, as well as had checks and other sensitive information being sent to that address. My roommate had moved in early and had furniture in the apartment already. When I arrived for move in, the door to the apartment in the 700s was open and the entire apartment was empty. After talking with the front office about what happened, they informed me I had a roommate by another name than one I had previously been assigned. It was really confusing and it turned out that the office messed up with my assignment. They told me I could either move into apartment 1000 something with the girl I had been talking to, change my insurance, and have to forward all of the mail that was already being sent to the 700s address, or I could stay in the 700 apartment by myself for the time. I chose to stay by myself because it was easier than changing all of the information. The next morning, a girl knocked on the door saying she was my roommate, and her name was one of the names I was given in the office when they had messed up. I was a little annoyed and confronted the office about knowing I would have a roommate the whole time, but they denied it. It wasn't a big deal at the time because I figured something like that would happen, so I let it go. My roommate and I do not get along. She is extremely messy, and our personalities do not go together well whatsoever. We could not be more different. There is always some type of food left out during the day, messes all over the floor, and dishes constantly in the sink. Though I have tried to talk with her about cleanliness, I ultimately I had to report her to management because nothing was changing. In our lease, it states that we have the right to a clean environment, and the right to feel comfortable in our apartment. I reported that I do not have a clean environment, and that it makes me very uncomfortable. I told management mid-December and nothing has been done. I have been in the office multiple times to ask what is taking so long and I've been brushed off. I don't want to get upset with the younger staff in the office, (who are usually the only ones there and always really really nice) because it is not their fault but it is extremely frustrating. There are also bugs in the apartment like cockroach nymphs and fully grown cockroaches (probably stemming from the fact that my roommate leaves dirty dishes and food out constantly). Though pest control has been to the apartment frequently, we still see these bugs. The water in the apartment is also not very clean . Any time I fill a pot, cup, or bowl with water, the water is extremely cloudy. Like others have reported, I've also noticed black specks in our water. Through all the negative, there are some nice things about the apartment. The bedrooms are pretty big, and the closets are very very nice. The price is slightly high, but compared to other complexes in the area, it isn't too bad. The shuttle that the complex offers is really great and the drivers are all really friendly. Overall, it certainly isn't the worst place to live but definitely would not be my first choice. I will not be renewing my lease for next year.

Honestly this place is not the best for the price. I got a half refurbished apartment which was supposed to be a good thing, but it's lacking some essentials like a garbage disposal and I have to walk pretty far just to dumb my garbage off. Electric nor gas are included, they were at my last apartment for only a little more, and we do not have great cable. There are some pros though: the staff is very nice, and maintenance always handles our requests day-of and I rarely have to call them. Also, this is the perfect complex if you own dogs!!!! Tons of space for them to roam and play, also a nice dog park. Walking distance to campus and the reliable shuttle are big pros Shout out to Clay the maintenance man, he's the best.

Jeremiah i give him 5 stars.(Don't ever get rid of him, he has such a nice spirit...it wasn't for him I would have left the apt within 2months of my lease)... as for the apartment complex itself (I reported that there were black stuff coming out of my water several times and was told it probably was paint The issue never got fix..Apt 319A .Also they remodeled the apartment while I was living there which was inconvenient for me...there was a huge water leak from the neighbors air conditioner that was coming through my ceiling which caused mole and water stains.. reported the issue and it took a little over month for maintenance to come and spray paint over the water stains (Which clearly didn't fix the problem)..I couldn't have company over bc the visitors parking was always full...my friend park in the non visitors section and only stay no more than 3hrs at my place and came outside her car was gone... I feel if it's after hours for the office people should be able to park anywhere..We had to drive across town to get her car. LAST BUT NOT LEAST (DOGS).... dog poop was everywhere!!! Really need to enforce the tenants to clean up after their dogs

Pros: The rooms are nice. No bugs! The workout room has pretty good equipment, and is rarely over crowded. The staff is friendly and typically helpful. Cons: If the staff tells you something will be done by a certain day, there is roughly a 30% chance that it gets done by that day. There are also a few hidden fees that they don't tell you about before moving in.

Amazing pool and HUGE closets. Great leasing and maintenance teams. Awesome convenient location. Only real complaint is that the kitchens are small with not a whole lot of cabinet space and could use some upgrading.

I lived at The Club for a year as a graduate student. This apartment complex is well kept and provides one of the best quality/price ratio in Columbia. I had no trouble commuting by bike to USC campus and enjoyed the overall serenity of the place. Pet friendly and clean with immediate proximity of a nice walking path along the river.

I am a third year college student, first time living anywhere other than home. Honestly, The Club has been nothing but accommodating. We have had some roommate issues in the beginning (but who doesn't?). The manager Julianne is awesome. She did a lot to situate everyone, while remaining professional and resolving the situation. Maintenance guy Jeff is super nice and his crew have been extremely helpful when fixing things and making sure everything is up to date and safe. I am shocked at how quick they are to get back with you as well. If it isn't fixed right away, they give you a time frame and let you know when they are coming over to get it done. The shuttle busses can be very busy in the morning and sometimes you may have to wait until the shuttle comes back around but they are definitely a convenient luxury. I have had nothing but a positive experience here and would recommend this apartment complex to anyone.

My daughter is going into her second year at The Club. Unlike other complexes she has lived in, The Club make repairs in a timely fashion and does its best to keep the community looking good and safe. I appreciate having this apartment for my daughter due to the shortage of campus housing. Emails are answered in a timely fashion, and they do their best to work with you when needed.
