Union on Lincoln Way

My experience here at Union has been amazing so far! My favorite and most important aspects are the location, covered parking, and the amenities. They all meet my standards for the price I am paying and can’t wait to further my experience over the next year!

Pretty solid. Overall i cannot think of anything that I would change besides maybe refilling the hot chocolate machine more. And have hot chocolate not just coffee.

Living at the Union was a fantastic experience and overall great living space. Price was the main deciding factor for leaving the apartment.

I like it the most because of its location- it's extremely close to campus, and with my schedule I really need that. I also like the fact that my apartment comes furnished because I don't want to deal with buying and selling furniture in college. It's worth it for me to pay extra for location and furniture.

Union has average amenities, below average staff, and it’s proximity to campus is the largest benefit of residing here. Also their system to pay rent is apparently changing, but when they have issues with the old one they need to take care of it better.

Union on Lincoln Way apartments are super nice and they offer great amenities! The location is the perfect distance to campus as well! The only thing that I’d change is the quality of their kitchen drawers, as they aren’t the easiest to pull in and out.

I like the apartment but it’s too expensive I’d live here again if it was $500 and parking was less than $50. The garbage chute is to small and even the small bags can’t fit down them I pushed a bad into the chute 2 days ago and ended up cutting my hand open on a can lid Incase someone was wondering about the blood trail

Overall the experience has been what I wanted out of an apartment. A couples drawbacks were the 2 weeks moveout during lease changeover and how the amenity deck was managed. As for events put on, I would like to attend them, but they often conflict with other things on my schedule, so maybe switch up the times some more.

The Reserve on Stinson Norman

It’s a nice place. It was built pretty cheap and you can tell. The island in our room is way too far into the living room and is crooked in the room. A lot of the doors are not cut right. Besides the building not being great, the experience has been pretty good.

Union is a great place to live and is super close to campus which is nice! All of the Union workers are really friendly and they do a great job running events that are of interest to residents.

I’m pretty much staying here because it is so close to the engineering buildings. I’ve literally never used the amenity deck because it’s always trashed by obnoxious people, so I pay an arm and a leg for a thin walled, poorly constructed apartment.

Although the amenities and location are nice, the apartment is very overpriced for what you are getting. The staff is also unorganized and not very helpful. Activities are also catered to only specific groups and Union clearly only values the residents who are renewing their leases.

Living in Union has for the most part been a great experience. I like all of the community activities they plan. One of the only things I believe needs to be improved is that there needs to be a way for residents to recycle things, rather than just the small recycling bins.

4 / 5

The Reserve on Stinson Norman

The appartment facilities are fantastic. Unfortunately, many of times the coffee machine is unusable due to a lack of upkeep, and amenities deck has been closed many times due to the irrasponsability of other residents. Subleasing is incredibly unfair to the original leaser and has many conditions/fees that are not advertised or given to you upon request prior to you actually starting the sublease processes.

Ever since move-in, I’ve loved this place! It is close to campus and a quick walk to class, but also far enough away from central campus so we’re not in the middle of everything.

Living her at Union has been great. Everything from the the rooms to the staff. Although, the WiFi/phone service could be better. To me, it is the best apartment on Iowa States campus.

Union on Lincoln Way has been a great place to live. The living area and rooms are very spacious. The amenities and events are fun and enjoyable. The events that are held every month are a great way to get people involved in the community and meet new people.

I really like that the building is brand new and the residents are really nice, but I do not like the lease renewal deals. I hope to live here next year but will depend on the sign up specials.

The apartments are nice and the amenities are fantastic. However, management is poor, and parking is extremely overpriced. Staff rarely take action for noise complaints as well. I feel that managements priority is only money and as long as they can place people in apartments they don't care about the actual residents.

I have enjoyed living in the apartment with the location being so close to campus, friendly staff, and constant resident promotions. The quality of appliances within the units could potentially be the only thing I could think of to improve.

I love Union on Lincoln Way. The only think I don’t like is how the windows do not open. I love all of the resident events and how helpful the staff is. Union really feels like a home away from home.

I've loved living at Union on Lincoln Way. The location is great, it's fully furnished, and it has great amenities. The only negative thing was being able to tell they were rushed to get things finished -- there were dents and scratches around the room as well as drywall dust and other careless mistakes. Overall, I love living here!

The Community overall is an enjoyable place. However, there have been a few issues within the money part of living in the community. When shown incorrect balances all the office has to say is that they are switching softwares and it will be a few weeks before we see change. After asking the office a multitude of times, the office finally elaborated more and/or fixed the issues within a timely manner.

So far, I am disappointed in my experience at UoLW. I feel like the people at the leasing office can't do much to help me when it really matters. I also feel like the amenities, besides the location, are low quality and not worth what I am paying for.

The Reserve on Stinson Norman

Good amenities. If you have tons of $$ or don't mind paying off student loans for a long long time, this is the place to be. The rent is ludicrous - and does not include utilities, which are also ludicrous. This is supposed to be student housing - should be barely a step up from dorm living and step down from frat living. It's bad enough that tuition is so high, but to create a higher standard of living for young adults that is in many cases on par with their parents is just absurd.

So far the community here at Union has been one that I would love to be in for the rest of my college career. I love that it is more than just an apartment complex where no one talks to their neighbors. Here the resident activities helps us meet more people that live in the building this making more friends so it's an overall great experience knowing those new people in your living space.

Part of Mao Zedong's land reform during the late phase of the Chinese Civil War[1] and the early People's Republic of China[2] was a campaign of mass killings of landlords[3] in order to redistribute land to the peasant class and landless workers.[9] It resulted in millions of deaths. Those killed were targeted on the basis of class rather than ethnicity, so terming the campaign genocide is incorrect.

It’s been pretty good. I wish the pool was open more and I was able to use that. Also in the living room there isn’t much light and it’s always dark. My WiFi always takes forever to connect and doesn’t work half the time. Also my roommates and I think the walls on Lincoln Way need to be sound proof because you can hear everything including people talking.

Although the apartment building does a very good job of setting up events for residents, I have yet to meet anyone in my building aside from in passing or on the elevator. I also do not know everyone who works behind the desk it would be nice to at least have a way to put faces with names.

Good except it seems like you guys are setting up traps for us to fall into financial trouble which I don’t like. Example: offering apartment release for next year so early on this year saying slots are getting filled. We all know they won’t be like come on guys.

The fact that the building is completely brand new is extremely attractive. Not only that, but it’s quite clear that there was a lot of attention and care put into the building. The amenities included inside each room and within the overall building are a great addition, and make the otherwise high price to live here totally worth it. My major requires me to be on the west end of campus for all my classes, so it is also incredibly convenient that Union on Lincoln Way is located where it is. I’m happy to live here, and I’m sad that I’ll only be able to stay for this semester, since I graduate in the fall.

Great quality, when things are broken maintenance doesn’t jack around, they get t fixed within reasonable time. Definitiely worth the price we’re paying.

The apartment it’s self is so nice with everything being new obviously but it’s not just that it’s new, everything is high quality.

Living at Union has been a really great experience with great amenities at a great location! The noise hasn't been great with the people upstairs from us and the maintenance between other apartments and outside. Also do not enjoy the pool being wrecked every weekend by inconsiderate, disrespectful people. Really enjoy the amenities, however. I would like to see a lower price in rent per month as well as free parking but would still recommend to a friend.

I really look forward to the Union being completed for next semester. Every time I look at the website's renderings, or drive past the construction site I'm imagining the awesome experience to come. All of this excitement is due to the extremely helpful staff at the temporary leasing office. Their staff is super friendly and helpful. They were very helpful in the process of getting my Fraternity, Sigma Tau Gamma, signed. They also made sure our rooms were all on the same floor and close to each other. I honestly cannot say enough nice things about how smooth the experience has been thus far, and look forward to living at the Union next semester!
