Resident Reviews

submitted by Anonymous U. - |Recommended: NoRoom was extremely unclean on arrival- dirt caked on floors, stained carpet, belongings in drawers still, unit smelled like mildew. Maintenance has ignored any requests I make by marking as confirmed and not reaching out to me. Courtyard gets extremely loud and nobody enforces quiet hours. Leasing office nickels and dimes you however they can even with rent already being so expensive. Parking gate has been opened accessible to anyone for months and I pay to park there. People have complained for YEARS and the Deacon has not changed. Nobody wants to hear the same we're working to improve every time. Please make a change.
submitted by Claire U. - |Recommended: YesN a — Overall a nice place to live The only concerns were rushed construction-architecture major

We appreciate the feedback and we have worked closely with our construction/design team as well as the city inspectors to ensure all areas are safe. We continually make improvements and complete building inspections to continue with upgrades. If there is anything specific that is an area of concern for you, please reach out and we will be happy to have our maintenance team stop by and take a look. Thank you!
submitted by Junyan C. - |Recommended: NoGreat place — A great place.
response from property -Junyan, thank you for your review. We love having you here as a resident! Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.
submitted by Benjamin I. - |Recommended: NoBuilding is a Dump — Don’t let the pool and arcade fool you this place is terrible. Walls are thin, can’t bump into a wall without leaving a stain on the paint, water electric utilities fail at least once a week, and maintenance requests seem to be ignored. Staff are unhelpful and only seem to get residents to renew their lease. Rent would probably be 200 cheaper if they didn’t run so many pointless promotions for gift cards. Hardly anyone shows up to them anyway.
response from property -Benjamin - thank you for your review. We work hard to ensure that all student's here at The Deacon have an enjoyable place to live. If you have outstanding maintenance requests, please contact our office to ensure proper details and notes are left with the request for proper assistance from our maintenance team. We put on many resident events and invite all residents to join us, these events often times have free food, giveaways, and more. I encourage you to attend one of our events, along with your roommates. Thank you!
submitted by Loren A. - |Recommended: YesPricey and newer — I'd recommend the deacon because it is one of the newest buildings near campus and because of the amenities and covered parking. Its pricey, and there are a lot of noise issues, skateboards in the parking garage and pet feces that has yet to be picked up, or investigated to fine residents. All-in-all, its a good college dorm with a price tag. If you like the smell of weed in the courtyard at night, this is the place for you.
response from property -Thank you for your feedback on The Deacon. As a resident, we rely on your feedback to make our community better. Thank you again for your time and support as we continue to improve our services for you.

response from property -Hey! Thanks so much for expressing your love for your community here at The Deacon! We strive to make each resident feel at-home, especially our student residents, and we are so happy you've had a great experience!
submitted by Megan R. - |Recommended: NoConstant issues — I lived there for 3 years. The first year there were constant fire alarms going off and it seemed to get better the second year. My third year however there is still a fire alarm issue. There are also many issues with the apartments themselves. My bathroom has obvious water damage and there are cracks running along the edge of the window all the way around.
response from property -Hi there, thank you for your patience and reaching out with your concerns. We strive for a safe and positive community and apologize if you feel we have fallen short in this area. We are continuing to work on improving our building and all features, we thank you for your recommendations to help improve the community.
