would not recommend The Corner May 2017

The coffee bar downstairs is neat. About a ten minute walk to the edge of campus. I walked to most classes in 15. There is a bus stop right outside the corner that lies on a route that goes to and from campus.

My chief complaint with this building is with the management. On move in, I discovered my room was not consistent with the floor plan that had been advertised to me (this complaint pertained to multiple floor plans here) and the manager's response was complacent and patronizing. Later on, I was told by the manager that I qualified for a program that allowed for cheaper rent. I was suspicious and asked her to clarify several times - in each case she confirmed that I qualify. I ultimately was able to find a different source that explained I do not qualify, but only after I agreed to release with the corner. Had I not had the cheaper rent, I would not want to live here again, but due to either negligence or deliberate misinformation provided by the management here, I was misled into staying. The main takeaway I am trying to get across is to have very low expectations of the management and to take everything with a grain of salt. Other things I did not like: - no security because none of the exterior locks worked - several of the amenities (interior courtyard, foosball tables, study hall/lobby for example) that anyone wanted to use were somehow limited from resident access for large periods of time - some things in the rooms were not built well. From the first day, multiple windows did not work (one even fell off despite never really being opened). From the weight of a bed (that did not move or sustain excessive stresses) the laminated floor broke from the molding. In several places the paint jobs were not entirely complete.

I liked the coffee and the guy who fixes your stuff when it's broken. The people who work here are good at three jobs

I wish they allowed roof access because the room is so cool

Neighborhood

West Campus

Close to the UT campus grounds, West Campus is a perfect fit for anyone desiring to be close to class while remaining in the heart of the social scene.
