Love the apartment
I love my own apartment, but I wish they had a dog park and a bigger gym.
Best of both worlds
We have a fantastic apartment, the gym is a little small but free breakfast if you wake up in time, a lovely club house and amazing views.
Great location and nice furnishings. Maintenance of pool, gates, and elevators needs to be better.
Quiet place compared to apartments on Ninth Street. The apartment is new. More undergrats and graudate school students live in the apartment. Easy to walk or take a bus to school.
Not too many MBA classmates, only 5 in all, which is both good and bad depending on what you are looking for.
Overall the place is pretty good. The apartments are fairly new and equipped with modern appliances. The complex is pretty quite with the occasional weekend party, they dont happen frequent enough to be an issue. Maintenence and staff are great. They are super responsive to your request. Getting to campus is a breeze. You have quick access to the LaSalle Loop bus line which drops off and picks up right across from Fuqua. If you don't want to ride the bus it is a nice 20/25 min walk to Fuqua as well.
Be wary of hidden charges
I had negative experiences with Management at the Heights. They actively try to set you up for additional charges not including in your rent. Subpar quality of facilities given the price of rent. The only reason why it has been an enjoyable experience was that a majority of my program stayed there and therefore we had a strong social presence.
Overpriced, great location
It is up to the class--if a lot of your classmates are living at the Heights like mine did, it'll be fine socially. I became very close friends with classmates because of our close proximity. The location is very convenient, and the bus picks you up right outside the complex.
Great location and for socializing, but pricier and poor management.
The Heights is a great complex in terms of its location to Fuqua, especially if you don't have your own car. It's a short walk and close to public transportation. Most of the MMS program lives here, so great for socializing, and the pool is great. However, it is pricier than the other options, and the management is pretty bad.
Would Avoid if Had to do it Again
The Heights was a great social place for our MMS class as majority of the class lived there, however, the poor property management and high prices is what would make me change my mind if I had to do it all over again. There are plenty other nice living arrangements close to campus that should be evaluated before settling on the Heights.
The Management is terrible
The new renovations and free parking cannot cover up the horrendous management team that infests the leasing center from 9-5 on weekdays. They penalize you for every smallest thing from taking out the trash 5 minutes too late to leaving the garbage out 5 minutes past the collection time. They themselves however constantly miss trash pick up, and turn around to penalize you for leaving the trash out.
Come the end of the lease, they will do everything possible to keep every cent of your deposit. Cheques given to their office constantly disappear and are lost, and you are penalized for late rent payments due to their mistakes.
They say they have free breakfast every weekday, but you are lucky to have it even show up two days out of five. On the days it does, it is just a jug of juice that lasts 5 cups and 5 pre-packaged muffins. If you aren't there within 5 minutes of breakfast starting, it is gone.
The pool is useless and is just a peeing spot for dogs. The grass is littered with dog droppings that no one bothers to pick up.
Overall, they advertise themselves as a luxury apartment complex, but the only one living in luxury is the management themselves, living off of all the money they scammed off of you.
Great for MMS students
I really enjoyed living at The Heights, mostly because almost half of the MMS program was living there and it was nice to be close to everyone and always be aware of when people are socializing by the pool or in someone's apartment. The pool/grill area is fantastic, but the gym is very small and could be better equipped. Overall, decent value and I would recommend staying here especially if you are in the MMS program.
The Heights is Great!
Great management and facilities people. Spacious rooms. Study areas are great for team work.
Can be loud sometimes.
Nice place close to friends
Because most of the MMS class lived at the heights it felt like our own little community and increased our bond as a class. The apartments are very nice. Overpriced but that is to be expected in any college town area. Management was good about responding to any maintenance requests in a timely fashion. It is within walking distance to class which was a nice added bonus. I really enjoyed my time here this year. The pool is very nice. The gym is rather small but if you just wanna go for a quick run on the treadmill it works. They claim they have a continental breakfast but don't hold your breath on that. There is however always coffee available and there are computers and a printer. The main building was nice to have to meet with your teams to do group work. Overall, great place to live and if I had to do it all over again i'd probably live here again.
