Living on the bottom floor is a nightmare. Ever since they removed the carpeting from the apartment the noise from the upstairs is even louder. The people walking upstairs rattle my glasses in the cabinet and the doors shake a make noises. I can also hear the people across the way when the are loud in the living room. Not to mention they never do anything about a person smoking in the apartment, this can be smelled by a lot of other apartments. The best part is that about once a month or so you hear a gurgling and then someones bath water backs up into your bath. This problem has been reported multiple times and no fix has been made. Its a good space save the problems but it sucks to have problems not be fixed.

I rented from different landlords every year while attending OSU, and University Manors has been a dream compared to some of my other experiences. The office staff are very welcoming and seem to genuinely care for their tenants. I lived in a studio apartment at 31 Chittenden, and I loved the apartment. Brand new appliances, granite countertops, laminate hardwood floors...it was all very nice. Electronic locks on the building (both outside building doors and individual units) make the place feel very secure. I have moved out now upon graduating, and I received my security deposit back in full (which is a first for me; previous landlords have deducted from my deposit for made-up reasons). Maintenance was always great. You can easily submit maintenance requests online, and my requests have always been handled promptly. I never had any big issues other than a small leak from my kitchen sink that someone came out within the hour to take care of. Additionally, the landlord was proactive about maintaining the unit. I would occasionally receive notices that crews would be in to upgrade/fix certain things (including repainting the bathtub and cleaning/changing air vent filters). There is just one aspect that was a little frustrating at times and could be improved: Parking spaces at 31 Chitt. are assigned by apartment number. Given the close proximity to restaurants such as Trism, Cane's, Panera, etc., there were often non-residents who parked at the apartment lot. If someone happened to be parked in your assigned spot, you had nowhere else to park expect to find a spot on the street (if you were lucky to find one reasonably close). I do have to give kudos to Shamrock Towing; they did a great job at enforcing the lot. I would see tow trucks driving by very often. However, they couldn't quite keep up with the idiots parking there without permits, and on occasion I would come home to find a car in my spot. If the parking spots were not assigned by number and you could just park anywhere in the lot, this would not be so much of an issue because usually not everyone who lives there is parked there all at the same time. Therefore, having unassigned parking would likely leave you a few parking options even if there are one or two non-residents parked there (who Shamrock would eventually tow). TLDR; had a wonderful experience living at 31 Chitt. and really appreciated the fair business that University Manors runs, especially in a city where there are a lot of landlords looking to screw over college students.

I lived in University Manors apartments for 3 years and had a wonderful experience with them. The apartment was very affordable, maintenance responded quickly, and the staff was extremely well organized and helpful. I had a contract issue moving from one University Manors property to another and the staff took six or seven hours out of a day to help me sort everything out. They went far beyond what I would normally expect of a landlord, especially considering the problem was not their fault. Some people on here are calling the staff rude, but I dont see it that way at all; theyre just on top of their responsibilities and expect you to be the same.

I lived in the same hours for three years. Each year we had different people move in and out of the house but the company never checked on the status of the house between leases or did not check for damages between each lease. Three years later, after moving out and cleaning the house to the best of our ability we were charged an extra $400 on top of our existing $4000 security deposit. The company charged an absurd $600 dollar cleaning fee after we personally mopped, swept, cleaned the fridges, and the bathrooms. If a company allows people to live there for 3 years without ever checking in on the status of the house, there should be a reasonable expectation that their turnover work will be bigger and that charge should not be put on the tenants. Repainting is turnover. Wood was old and warped the door frames due to age which we were charged for as well. The charged us for missing keyed door knobs which we needed to purchase ourselves, because when we moved in they gave us keyed knobs when we without the keys to the door. They will try to squeeze every penny out of students and set you up for a future charge. We ended up trying to appeal the extra 400, but the company would not budge. Tenants should be warned and this million dollar company has no sympathy for students. We never missed a rent payment, and were more than fair to this company. Watch out for the amount they will charge you.

Staff is helpful and friendly. I think some people just like to complain and not take accountability when they have an issue. I had a much better experience with them than my other landlord. I have recommended them to friends.

I am entering my third year of renting from University Manors, and I have had an extremely positive experience with them the entire time! Everyone in the office is always so kind and helpful and they always go out of their way to help us.

I rented with University Manors for 3 years and I loved everything about the company! The staff is extremely friendly and easy to work with! The maintenance staff was always quick to respond and very efficient at their jobs! I also loved how they used an online system to pay rent (huge perk!). To anyone looking to rent from UM, I highly recommend doing so!

I lived with University Manors for three years, and I'm only leaving because I'm moving out of Columbus. They're excellent. I was a bit hesitant when I first moved because of the bad reviews, but honestly after three years no bad experiences stick out to me. The front office is super helpful and easygoing. Maintenance almost always shows up within 24 hours, and they're polite and efficient. It's great for the cost. And, compared to what else is out there, their prices are pretty competitive. It's also nice that everything is included in the rent, which makes monthly payments much easier. All in all, I'd recommend them and I was satisfied with my time there.

Awesome staff that is willing to work with you to accommodate almost any situation. Maintenance staff is very friendly and thorough. They also respond very quickly to maintenance requests as well. I would recommend this leasing company to everyone look to rent at Ohio State.

I lived at one of their locations in a 1 bedroom apartment from May 2015 to July 2016. Overall I had a great experience with University Manors. Emails were always sent out to keep everyone up to date on anything going on in their building, move-in and also move-out info. I didn't like how we had to commit to renewing the lease about 9 months before move out because things can change constantly (and it did for me). I committed but then decided to move off campus around March 2016 because I wanted to get a dog and University Manors apartments (and the campus area in general) didn't allow dogs. I did have to pay $100 to get out of my lease for the 2016-2017 school year but I thankfully found someone who would take over my lease. ALWAYS MAKE SURE TO TAKE PICTURES THE DAY YOU MOVE IN!!! These will come in handy for your own personal files for when you move out and so that you don't get charged for something that you didn't do. I'm not just saying that with University Manors but with any place that your leasing. I did this before I moved in and when it came to getting my deposit back they were awesome about reviewing the pictures I had taken on move-in day and giving me more back! Kelly was AWESOME about working with me and answering any questions. As long as your polite people will be polite back. Yes, some situations are sensitive and if you have an issue with your apartment I suggest that you not jump down University Manor's throats and play the blame game. THEY WILL WORK WITH YOU as long as you're professional and patient you won't have any problems. I think that a lot of people don't give the staff enough credit for what they do. It's not the easiest job to manage properties with a bunch of college kids but they definitely know what they're doing. I would recommend anyone to lease through University Manors!! Thanks for making my experience a great one!

I lived with University Manors for 3 years at 2 different locations. Both apartments were clean at move in and they even allowed me to transfer directly from one unit to the next which made the move much easier. Maintenance was always very efficient to complete any necessary repairs. The office staff were always very friendly and helpful. I loved that parking was free and my apartment was updated and well maintained. I also really liked the contests and free giveaways they did through social media. I would highly recommend UML to anyone looking for off-campus housing.

I have been so impressed by the staff and services of University Manors. I came to University Manors in the middle of a semester in grad school, hoping to find the impossible--a mid-year opening. The staff was incredibly helpful in my search, and I was able to take over a prior tenant's lease in the middle of the school year. Since then, I have had nothing but terrific experiences. The staff is friendly, professional, accessible, and responsive--they respond to emails in a timely manner, and are always available in-office and over the phone to answer questions. Additionally, the maintenance staff is great--they also respond very quickly to maintenance requests and are available outside of standard business hours for emergencies that may come up. The studio apartment I stayed in allowed me to live within walking distance to Ohio State's campus in a safe environment, making life as a graduate student much easier. I will certainly miss the hospitality of the staff when I graduate and move. Highly recommend this company.
