Horrible! Gregory Towers south-facing apartments have holes in the bedroom walls so it rains on the beds and the desks. Black mold all around the bottom walls. Literally crickets coming in with the rain. Stinks of mold. Time to tear off those south-facing stucco/concrete panels and replace all the walls or it won't be fixed. Management does nothing and maintenance is rude.

DO NOT RENT FROM THEM!! As usual they will keep whatever money they can from your security deposit. They charge you for cleaning even when you have cleaned after you left. They charged $138 for cleaning when that place was near spotless when we left. Any marks left are because of the age of the building. They took over some of Barr Real Estates property and HAVE NO IDEA about any of the places. They literally were clueless about our apartment complex. DO NOT SIGN WITH THEM!!! You are better off on the streets than with them. And don't expect any money back after your lease. They do not care about you once you sign with them.

I HATE LIVING HERE!! The only positive thing I have to say about University Group is that I have made it through the first six months of my lease! I could go on for days about all of the awful things UG has done during my time with them. Everyone I have talked to about living with UG has hated it. Don't waste your money because they will be SO nice right before you sign your soul over to them.

I think amar a. works for the University Group. He made two posts in two days with basically the same comments and in a manner that a real estate agent would use.

106 E. DANIEL - GREAT APARTMENT!
Me and my 3 roomates lived at 106 E. Daniel for 2 years in a top floor 4 BR townhouse. We had a great time and were just down the street from the Quad. Weekends sometimes got a little crazy, but the building was back to normal by monday morning. I would recommend this building.

I read other reviews on the internet about the University Group and they are 90% bad. My experience living with the University Group was a very good experience. I wish more people would take the time and write about their good experiences. I know all my neighbors enjoyed their apartments also. Yes I moved in early and had to take my apartment as-is, but that is what my roommates and myself agreed to. I ended up living in two different University Group buildings during my stay on campus and both were excellent locations. If you want brand new top of the line go pay 5 times as much. My apartments were more than adequate. Thank you to the University Group for the great apartment.

They are the most incomeptent group of people i Have ever met. The apartment was in shoddy condition when I moved in...i had to go out and buy a steamer to clean the couch and mattress because they refused to replace it..i cleaned the whole place before and after...but they took out over 300 dollar from my deposit of 400. They tried intimidating me when I tried asking for invoices....i got mugged at their place..i went into my apartment to get away and the guy had no problem getting into the apartment building because the doors and locks dont work! and when i told them what happened.......well lets just say the door is still not fixed!!! and they are completely non chalant about and could care less.
they are a buncha arragant ignorant people, who can do nothing more than steal ur money and laugh at u because u r stupid enough to fall for it....thats not an exaggeration that is exactly what they did when i asked them questions

University Group is by far one of the worst realtors in the Champaign-Urbana area. They have horrible customer service and are rude to all their tenants. They are arrogant and therefore think it is below them to help their paying rentees with maintenance and financial issues. They issue eviction notices without reason, charge for extraneous phantom reasons, and leave customers on hold on the phone for extended periods of time. It also takes then many days if not weeks in order to take care of maintenance issues. My apartment had mold on the ceiling that was making my roommate and I sick. They refused to take care of it and after weeks of calling they finally came in and merely painted over it. The mold was still visible and my roommate and I were still sick. After nearly a month of living in a rundown, moldy apartment and persistant calling, they came and replaced the ceiling. University Group also towed my car out of my spot that I pay for every month and refused to reimburse me even at their own mistake, they also made no effort to contact me before towing me out of my spot. There is really no sense of communication amongst the people that work there and the people living on their properties. Even my own mother said it looked like we were living in the slums by the condition of the apartment.

The best college living experience that one could imagine. Spacious and clean apartments at reasonable prices. Centrally located to all major centers of campus and the surrounding areas. Friendly and courteous staff that are always willing to help. Maintenance requests are always taken care of promptly and correctly the first time.

By far the worst management company in Champaign. Horrible maintenance, overpriced. Both apartments I rented from them were filthy with bugs. Their staff was awful.

PROS: None.
CONS: Everything- price, staff, cleanliness.
