submitted by Emma T. - |Recommended: YesOverall probably the best housing in Normal — Close to everything, easy in-building parking, clean and modern, nice courtyards, friendly staff. It made my life easy and comfortable while attending school. There is a little problem with noise from neighbors at times but that might be the only negative I can mention.
response from property -Hi Emma, thank you for your kinds words! We're so glad you've enjoyed enjoyed your time at CPU & that it has made your time attending school easier!
submitted by Madison G. - |Recommended: YesGreat First Apartment — I really enjoyed my time at CPU. All the staff was always friendly and very helpful. Maintenance requests were fulfilled quickly every time. Although the apartment is a bit small, it is modern and in great condition. I toured a handful of apartments in the area and CPU was by far the nicest, taking into account the price and distance from campus. Building security and in unit washer and dyer were features I especially liked about the place. CPU really tries to create a community within the residents of the building which is always nice.
response from property -Thank you so much for your kind words, Madison! We are so glad to here that you've had a great time living at CPU and we will miss having you at our resident events!
submitted by Jean S. - |Recommended: YesConvenient Upscale Apartment — Very quiet - can't hear my neighbors at all. Right on campus - walk to classes - and CVS is on the corner if you need something. Right on the bus route as well. Parking under the building and down the street. Maintenance staff Wes and Rick are great Complex is kept clean and they have been sanitizing the elevators and stairway daily. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a nice place and convenient location to campus.
response from property -Thank you so much for your kind words Jean! We're glad you've enjoying your time at CPU and have enjoyed all the benefits of our communities amazing location!
submitted by Kelsey B. - |Recommended: YesPerfect Place — I love my apartment The staff and management have been incredible I've only needed maintenance once, and they were quick to fix my problem. There was even one time I came back to my apartment, and they had improved the lighting in my kitchen without me even requesting it. Speaking of the kitchen, it's perfect if you love cooking. There is so much cabinet and countertop space. Plus it's so close to campus and all sorts of shops. It's honestly the best place I could live in while attending ISU Only downside is if you don't sign up for parking when you sign your lease it may be difficult to get a spot later. There are other options kind of nearby if needed. There also isn't parking available on site for guests. They would need to use a parking garage nearby. Really though I just consider this a minor inconvenience. Everything else about this apartment is fantastic
response from property -Kelsey, thank you for your awesome feedback! We are so happy to hear that you enjoy living here at CollegePlace Uptown.
submitted by Allisson M. - |Recommended: YesGreat place to live — It is a great and quiet place to live ACROSS THE STREET FROM CAMPUS Recommended CPU to my best friend and she just signed her lease
response from property -Thank you for your kind words! It's a tough location to beat, isn't it? We're excited to have you and your friend as residents next year!
submitted by Jeffrey K. - |Recommended: YesAs the co-signor father of student, I would have to give the property a 5 STAR Rating — Again, not being the resident, I would recommend the property and parking garage to any prospective family with financial means to afford the expense . However, the moment of truth' will be upon move-out when First Site was horrible . I'm hoping for a positive customer experience with College Place.
response from property -Hello Jeffrey, thank you so much for your kinds words! We always strive to provide superior customer service to residents and guarantors alike during the leasing process, their time living in our community, and after their lease ends. While we don't look forward to you leaving, we work to make your move-out experience as smooth as possible.
submitted by Marisa M. - |Recommended: YesGreat apartment — Cozy apartment, friendly people, and ease of access to Uptown Normal
response from property -Thanks for your kinds words, Marisa. We are glad you feel so cozy and at home!
submitted by Esmeralda M. - |Recommended: YesI appreciate the security safety of the facility — As a parent, the security and safety of College Place Uptown is of upmost importance to me. The team in the management office has been great from day one. Everything has been smooth sailing from the start. The apartments and all amenities included are worth the cost.
response from property -Thank you for the great feedback! We hope that you continue to enjoy your experience here at CPU!
submitted by Dominique S. - |Recommended: YesI really love and appreciate living here, and the building management team is so friendly and accommodating — If someone were to ask me what it's like living here, I would say that its like a home away from home. There is so much to love about this place. The security, the seamless operation of everything here, neighbors here really respect each other and reciprocate the same in return. If I ever have questions or concerns, the lovely team in the leasing office is always ready and available to help.
submitted by Caitlyn W. - |Recommended: YesGreat place for students — Location is perfect to ISU quad, CVS nearby has basically everything one may need, 1 BR apartments are perfect size and have enough space.
submitted by Maria H. - |Recommended: YesGood place to live — I really enjoy living at college place, however I do not like that the parking is an additional extra charge especially when rent is so high and I live alone. I can also hear my neighbors pretty well in my room which is annoying but not horrible. I really love everything else about living at college place and will most likely sign again because of location and safety
submitted by Zachary M. - |Recommended: YesWell maintained — it's close to campus and well-maintained
submitted by Susan J. - |Recommended: YesVery positive experience — My daughter lived at another complex last year that advertised room mate matching. It was clear after several unfortunate and scary incidents, that there was no true room mate matching. When we met with Ashley to tour CollegePlace Uptown, we explained our prior experience. Ashley was very concerned and explained exactly how CollegePlace Uptown would address the circumstances that we previously encountered. Ashley made me feel confident that this was the right place for my daughter but I was still a little skeptical due to the past experience at the other complex. I have held off writing a review because I wanted to see how things went. My daughter moved in at the beginning of the semester. Move in process was easy and the staff was very helpful. I visited two weeks ago and I have to express my genuine appreciation. It is clear that CollegePlace Uptown does take great effort in room mate matching and due to that, things are going very well. The complex is immaculate. My daughter has indicated that they have had to submit a service request for minor things and the response has been immediate. The building is very secure and as a parent, this really gives me peace of mind. I would highly recommend CollegePlace Uptown. A sincere thank you to Ashley for really taking the time to listen to our concerns. It has made a world of difference for my daughter. Sue J
