Amazing apartment in a great location, very convenient to UCLA
very convenient to UCLA and great food and fun within walking distance.
Love it here
it's a great place to live
Enjoyed living here - it's a little pricey but generally good building and fairly reliable management.
You can do better
Seriously, won't take long.
Great property overall
The management is very responsible and the apartment is fairly new. The only downsides are the fact that it doesn't have a gym and parking is through an alley.
Living here has been great, good location good apartment. Nothing really to complain about, although there is some decent road noise from Santa Monica Blvd.

Very nice apartment
Responsive Management & Big Floor Plans
Wiseman isn't everyone's favorite, but management here is better than at some other Wisemans. I'm happy here because the places are pretty nice and clean and new-looking, plus our place is really big, and we don't pay that much, considering. Plus, 15 min drive to campus, can walk to Sundowners some weeks, and plenty of classmates live walkable from here.
Issues with pipes, laundry machine, blinds, etc.
Pros: looks nice on the outside, one bathroom per room, very nice bathrooms and covered parking available. Many neighbors are UCLA students so we get together and its fun
Piping: two neighbors had floods, water just started coming out from the ceiling. Me? I enjoy a pipe tapping on my wall every time somebody flushed the toilet, I particularly enjoy it at 4am when I need to sleep.
Laundry Machine: smells bad, they wont replace it
Blinds: I gave up on opening the blinds in my room because every time one of them falls off. They will replace them, but after 3 replacements im done
Stolen packages: There is a 30% chance your mail will be stolen and Wiseman takes no responsibility.
Dirt: The halls in between apartments are exposed to the elements and color white. They are always full of dirt.
You won't be able to have friends over, because any semblance of noise and a security guard is standing on your door.
Stay away from this Wiseman.
Great spot, ok mgmt
Spacious apartment well insulated in top floor so doesn’t get too cold or hot ever. Elevator is a bit troublesome and they have run out of parking spots for building which are quite expensive. Additionally the maintenance request process is not too bad through the portal but my onboarding to join the lease with existing roommates was very annoying as Dee one of the property managers is quite scatterbrained and forgetful. Other than that tons of Anderson students in building and noise from Santa Monica Blvd doesn’t bother me.
Reliable and Convenient!
Wiseman buildings are reliable and high quality, if a bit bland and cookie-cutter. You pay a bit of a premium for the convenience but it worked well for me and my roommates, all of whom moved to LA from across the country and were able to set everything up without actually visiting the complex.
Wiseman is sometimes responsive, and sometimes they are completely impossible to get ahold of. Very hit or miss. Building is not secure at all and very easy to gain access to. We've had a ton of packages get stolen during our time here, management seems uninterested in doing anything to solve the problem. Location is terrible, surrounding streets are always congested. Apartments look nice but are made with shoddy materials.
1500 Purdue MBA Student
1500 Purdue is a perfect apartment complex for roommates who want to be close to the social scene in Sawtelle/Brentwood/Santa Monica but also want a very short commute to campus.
I really enjoy my apartment. It's a 3 bedroom/3 bath. One of the bedrooms does not have an en suite, but the bathroom is still spacious. The master bedroom is huge with 2 closets and the bathroom is of equal size. The apartment comes with 2 tandem parking spots and there is ample street parking outside considering this is West LA. Food is just a few blocks away down Sawtelle and there is a ramen place <1 min walk from the apartment. Campus is a 10 min drive away. There are a few homeless people that occasionally come nearby, but they mind their own business and I've lived here for a year and a half with no problems from them. I would recommend this place to any Anderson student looking for housing.
