I have lived at the Woodlands for two years and I am looking forward to June 19th! My MOVE OUT DATE!

I thought living off campus would be a plus but it has been nothing but a nightmare living at the Woodlands.

When I first moved in my apartment had not even been cleaned thoroughly. My parents hired someone to clean what the Woodlands had neglected - there was still food drippings in the oven, the light switches were grimey and the carpet was disgusting. The model apartment looks nothing like the actual dirty apartments. We had to hire someone to clean up the mess from previous tenants that the Woodlands failed to do.

The management is twisted - they never do anything to help out their tenants. Once I heard someone come into the management office and told them that the apartment above them was leaking. They told him "Maintenance is overwhelmed at the moment but they would look it at as soon as possible." He had water pouring down his walls! I caught up with him later and he had called plumbing on his own.

All of the girls that work in the office are locals who didn't go to college and don't understand how to do anything. They have told me more than once that they will come out and fix issues but they never do. The maintenance requests are an endless cycle.

They do not appreciate the people who live here and treat all of the students as children. They are quick to take your money from rent, fines, etc. but never give you a receipt of payment. You have to ask for a receipt or else they will claim you didn't pay.

A new management group tookover but changes have not been made. If the new management was actually trying to make things over...shouldn't they have fired the old management personnel who was making all the extremely bad mistakes to begin with'

They recently sent out an email to us asking us not to park near the clubhouse because the tenants who live near the clubhouse did not have anywhere to park. However, the management thinks they are not part of the problem! They park right in front of the tenants buildings next to the pool and clubhouse! I see it everyday!

When the trash compactor is full you have to take your trash elsewhere because you will be fined $25 per bag (even though the dumpster is full) for leaving your trash at the compactor. What a nuisance!

Becuase the Woodlands is situated in the ghetto there are always strangers at the pool and basketball courts.

The computer lab is not functional - go ahead - try it out when you come visit. They have 5 computers all of which are from the 90's and are useless.

The gate stays open for such a long period of time that 6 or 8 cars can get in behind you.

There are very few chairs at the pool in relation to the number of bedrooms at the woodlands (which is 460 bedrooms).

There is one parking spot per bedroom which equals = zero parking for guests.

The clubhouse is rented out to non-tenants (ie. sorority and fraternity parties) so don't expect to use it on weekend nights.

If you want to have a pet there is non-refundable $240 charge $20 a month for every pet.

My case is not an isolated incident. TALK TO SOMEONE OR EVEN MULTIPLE PEOPLE WHO LIVE AT THE WOODLANDS BEFORE YOU SIGN A LEASE TO GET REAL INFORMATION FROM FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE!

There are much nicer places to live where the management will just leave you alone and only come around when you need them. Think twice because you are locked in for the enitre term of your lease no matter what.

Feel free to email me at tigerslab003@aol.com for more information or specific questions. I have a list of all fines and rules as outlined on the lease.

I cannot wait to move out! The maintenance at this place is rediculous. Good luck getting them to fix your problems. None of the computers in the computer lab work and the printer is always out of order. It has been like this for 2 years and I don't see any changes being made.

There is ONE treadmill for a complex of 460 people.

The gate is in operation now but it is a hassle rather than helpful. The design is awful. It is not secure - you open the gate for yourself and it stays open long enough for 6 cars to get in behind you. If the management actually cared about safety and closed the gate for safety you would think they can realize that the gate does not perform a safety function. It is merely for looks and is a pain to use.

Maintenance is not on-site any longer - they out source all of the repairs and even the air filter changes are done "by the job" through random hired help. I hate the idea that complete strangers who do not work on the property are entering my apartment every single month to change the air filter.

The apartment it self is wonderful. However the management is terrible. The security gate has been nonoperational for over a year. Other amenities are also broken. Also the Woodlands of Clemson will not refund your security deposit in a timely manner according to law. Do not expect to get your deposit back in full.

Our college aged daughter lives at the Woodlands and we are very happy with the facility. The previous poster mentions location and we were concerned also. It has not been a problem. The staff keeps a close eye on who is on the property and there is a remote operated security gate as well as good fencing. The neighbors are never in the pool. The property is kept clean and well cared for.

The Woodlands apartments have just been completed here in Clemson. The apartments look great and have management on site (for normal business hours). These have to be the nicest apartments in Clemson, however I am quite concerned about their location. Just outside of the gates into the Woodlands is the Clemson "ghetto". I have seen the neighborhood children walking through the Woodlands properties even though their homes are outside of the gates. I imagine that in the summer time the pool and recreation areas are also overrun with the neighborhood children. Even though these apartments look great, we decided not to purchase one because of the proximity to the governement housing.
