Recent Asset Campus Housing reviews
Great location and value for money
- Great location, conveniently located between school and CC
- Apartment appliances are new and work well
- Decent gym and pool (during the summer)
- Fair price
- Not a lot of Wharton MBAs around (not necessarily a con)
- Small apartment and kitchen area (it's hard to fit four on the kitchen table, plates barely fit in the cabinet)
Expensive, but convenient
definitely expensive and when I leave it will more expensive. But if that is what you want when you attend Drexel/Penn it is worth it.
Nice, Inexpensive Location
Staying at Ballpark was so far nice. The price range for a 1 bedroom apartment is good although sometimes the maintenance isn't that quick. The gym and the pool are nice amenities in addition to the club house. It is close to the supermarket and has covered parking. Moreover, there is a shuttle to UT which makes it perfect for students.
Great location, amenities & management
Management has recently changed, and for the better! All maintenance requests and questions have been solved promptly. We have access to a pool and mediocre gym. The apartment is perfect for our needs and so close to downtown and the river. The apartment complex isn't social, but they are trying new things such as yoga classes, etc. There is no wifi in the main building or work rooms, and that's been a huge pain.
Evo - very convenient for Penn students
The location of Evo is incredibly convenient - 15min walk from PennMed, 5min walk from 30st. Station where you can access the Amtrak trains, Megabus, the Septa subway and trains, as well as the Lucy bus that is free for Penn students/employees. The amenities are also great - free utilities, color printing, gym, concierge for packages, etc. Great place for convenient living.
Cheap, but decent student housing
This complex is a great for any UT students looking for a cheap place to live, if you don't mind the distance. Plus, It's a 5 minute walk from HEB. Overall, the apartment is your average size, nothing special and management can be a little slow to fix issues.
Why does it always seem that management at Student Housing is HORRIBLE?! A work order in the apartment can take anywhere from a week to a month, which is just unacceptable. They are also just plain rude. Adding in how unsafe the neighborhood gets some times, I wouldn't recommend moving here.
Cheap, Student Housing
This apartment complex is perfect for the poor, college student. It is close to the UT Bus Route, which takes you straight onto campus. The problem with this complex is that it is student housing and therefore can be loud on the weekends due to parties and other shenanigans. Perfect for now, but once I'm earning a paycheck, I'm moving.
Not your average student housing
This apartment complex has gotten a few makeovers in the past years, and it has been progress. Although it is student housing, it seems that management is attempting to stray away from that atmosphere of cheap and dirty. The bus stop is within walking distance and takes you onto campus, which is great for someone like me who doesn't have a car.
Fully furnished, convenient location, but not so great neighbors
It's tremendously helpful to NOT have to worry about moving your belongings into this apartment just before pre-term... because this place is fully furnished! Also makes move-out quite easy. The location is perfect-- a block from 30th Street Station, the second-closest to Huntsman Hall (after Domus), extremely close to 2401 (although the walk across the river can get chilly during the winter) and to Pub. The management was not great when the building first opened, but they've gotten a lot better. (Still not great though. Once had to explain debits and credits to their management while hashing out an issue with my billing.) But really, the one issue that's hard to get past in this building is that the neighbors are mostly snotty, intolerable Drexel undergrads who treat the building like a frat house on weekends.
Subpar apartment experience
Evo has never lived up to the promise that the management and leasing staff sold me on. The building is overrun by wild undergrads, the location is semi-isolated, and the apartments are cheaply constructed.
Literally the worst place I have ever lived
The only good thing about business school ending is that I get to move out of this miserable building. Incompetent is a generous compliment given the experiences I have had with the staff.
Could have been great
The apartments have cement walls and ceilings with writing from construction, and randomly placed huge cement pillars reducing the amount of available space in the already tiny apartments and even blocking the view. Overall, the apartment looks unfinished and worse than a dorm room. Additionally, the bedrooms do not have any lighting.
The company advertised something completely different thereby misleading everyone. This place is a terrible value for your money.
As for the amenities, they are NOT all ready even though I moved in almost a year ago. The management makes matters worse by constantly lying to the residents and being rude. Their general manager quit around the end of February, but they never informed the residents and I only found out when my emails and calls to him kept going unanswered for weeks. Moreover, the new management refused to keep the promises made by their own general manager simply saying "We're sorry we can't help you with any promises made by the previous manager" even when I had emails from him detailing those exact things. So they have management issues and screw the residents over in exchange...
I know that there have been a lot of mixed reviews about Evo but I can't say I have really had any bad experiences here. Everything in my apartment works just fine and the only issue I had was with my washer but it got fixed pretty quickly. There is a lot of construction in the area but obviously the building is still a work in process so its expected. The location is great because its exactly a halfway point between Center City and the Drexel campus. The gym is pretty nice and the view from it is amazing. It is a little overpriced if you live buy yourself or with another person but the more people you find to live with you, the cheaper it will be. What I love the most is the fact that you have large windows in every room and you get a lot of natural light. Some might argue that the apartments are ugly on the inside because they are concrete but its just a modern building. Overall, great place to live if you are a college student.
This building was incredibly mis-marketed. I made the fatal mistake of signing the lease before viewing an apartment. The virtual tour made the apartments seem much larger and even displayed hall closets and pantries when, in fact, the apartments did not have them. I was very clear on my needs and deal breakers for an apartment, as well as pricing. The management blatantly lied to induce me to sign the lease. The building was inevitably not finished for move-in. We are still waiting on some promised amenities, despite a $500 amenity fee and had to be woken up at 7am every morning, including weekends to the construction noise until late January. We still do not have a security system. The management is unresponsive and make rash decisions and are awful with communication. In addition, the apartments are ridiculously small for the price and dorm-like. They are cheaply furnished and management has no issue giving you 20 minutes notice that they are going to randomly inspect your apartment. They also are raising my rent 20% for next year, which is another reason I am moving. The management does not take criticism very well, and sometimes resort to harassment instead of politely talking to you about the problem. They also have interns as the majority of their staff. These interns are often left completely unsupervised and generally do not know what is going on. There are many better value options than evo.
