Terrible,terrible,terrible- worse decision ever made. The price is too much for living conditions. The units are small cubes with; mold, roaches, bedbugs, bugs, along nasty management. These people will lie to cover their tales and only

I wish I could give negative stars. I had a horrible experience with Riverside. Anytime I had a complaint or problem I got the run around. I lived in a 2 bedroom my first year, which was okay, there was an issue with bugs and appliances

The complex has the worst management I have ever seen in a apt complex. She is by far the most incompetent manager I have ever dealt with. She refuses to deal with problems. My daughter has a roommate that was suppose to be compatible

I hate even giving it one star because it is such a terrible place to live. I'm going to write things out into a list because there are so many sh*tty things about this place:\r
Major bug problem\r
slow maintenance\r
slow internet\r
crappy

This is from a USC parent perspective. My son, a typical young USC student, visited the Riverside office to ask questions, get advice, and work through potentially signing up for an apartment. Seems harmless, EXCEPT he was told by the person he spoke to that he needed to sign his Rental Agreement to lock in the rate, BUT, he wasn't actually committed until the Guarantor papers were signed.

Well... of course, thing changed and he needed to notify the apartment management that he wouldn't be able to continue with the agreement. All seems good, right? (I mean he was told by someone on the staff that he hadn't committed until he brought back the signed Guarantor form.)

WRONG. Now the story is... we don't know who would have told you that, and we have a signed rental agreement, so, legally you're stuck.

I've even had a conversation with the management, but to no avail... it's the old..."it's just your word against ours, and we have a signed contract."

Technically, and legally, they are correct... but, for those of you who read this, who would want their children staying at a place where the Management and general policy/attitude is to take advantage of young people... especially when they come to them for help and assistance. (Instead of help and assistance, they may get incorrect information and bad advice... which can be quite costly.)

Buyer beware... but you've been warned about how this company operates.

Please, PLEASE don't waste your money on Riverside. It truly is a terrible place to live. Yes, it's inexpensive, which is great (though prices just went up two months ago for next year and beyond). However, you will not at all get what you're paying for. I've had nothing but problems with this place -- the maintenance staff takes days to fix things that are pertinent, such as a malfunctioning toilet or thermostat. The foundation of the building is in very poor shape, and rather than spend the money to fix it, they've decided to put in HDTVs. The bug problem is outrageous. The pool isn't kept clean, the guest policy is NEVER enforced, and I've had to call the office every single time I've had a package because they take anywhere from 3-10 days to send notification that it's arrived. The tenants are noisy and disrespectful, and management is ineffective in helping. Inside the apartment, the caulking around my sink has come undone, our washer AND dryer have had to be replaced, our thermostat doesn't function properly, and the carpet has had to be steam cleaned after a flood from the apartment upstairs. I know 12+ people that live at Riverside and have had many similar issues. I'm also a fairly easygoing person and am very patient with most issues -- but I'm not ok with paying $400 a month to live in these conditions. Do NOT be fooled by the new advertising or the beautiful apartment shown during tours. Riverside is a TERRIBLE choice.

Pros: Relatively inexpensive

Cons: Buildings/appliances in poor condition, ineffective staff
