Apartment Reviews at University Park Apartments
The great place to chose to live in Ithaca.
My family and I lived here for one year and we had a very good experience. The community is so great and quiet for study. The community is close to the bus stop and is convenient to commute to Cornell campus. Besides, there is a shopping mall, including pharmacy, cafe, bakery, and laundry etc.. For Asia students, there is especially an asia grocery store with lots of food and necessities. The landlord is very flexible and reasonable. We never had any major issue with the apartment and the maintenance crew was always available and solved small issues in a quick way. The apartment has laundry in several places very close to the apartments. It also has free parking and a free spot for exercise and pool! The price is very reasonable and competitive comparing to other places in Ithaca. I would recommand this apartment to live in Ithaca.
I moved here in October of 2011 and I must say, I have not had a reason to move. The landlord is really nice and very good about making sure maintenance follows up on any issue, in fact, any time I've needed maintenance to come, they have fixed any problem I've had within a day (as well as being exceptionally nice and professional). The grounds are kept clean and exceptionally well maintained. Any time there is an issue that effects the entire complex, such as a few years ago when they had to repave the parking lot, they gave exceptionally advanced noticed and made sure that it went as quickly and efficiently as possible. I've never had a problem with noisy neighbors and given that I live in a college town, that is a huge plus for me. As I said before, this is my first apartment, and these are a few of the many reasons, I have not had to find another.
For living in Ithaca, finding an apartment can be difficult to say the least. Unless you don't mind living in closet sudio apartment, which are sprouting up everywhere due to the college atmosphere. Thus, University Apartments gives the everyday person a great offer! In the rent for a one bedroom (900 sq ft) it can range from $1000-$1200 but water, garbage, cable & interent, 24 hr gym & suana are included! Plus the great location near the mall. But most importantly, the place is well designed and the staff are more than helpful! Finding apartments can be difficult but I hope this helps!
This is a nice place. Some rooms have recently been fixed up a little and are good. The management is responsive of needs. Because of its location in Ithaca, it is more expensive than its worth. As most apartments are this way, it is ok. The pool is nice, but the lounge chairs need to be fixed up.
Would not recommend
The issues my roommate and I experienced with this apartment were too numerous to outweigh the reasonable rent price. The biggest problem was that our heat broke in January and it took them 2 days to come and fix it because it was the weekend. Temperatures reached below zero and we had no heat. We had a pervasive insect problem as well which mainly included quarter-sized spiders coming out from underneath the carpets. There were hundreds of tiny spiders in all rooms of the house throughout our entire stay. There were a few large silverfish centipedes in my bedroom. If you do decide the live here, do not live on the first floor. The walls are incredibly thin and I was able to hear everything that the tenants above me were doing. The landlord is really nice and responsive. With the exception of the heat, our issues were quickly attended to, but there were so many problems that it was just not worth it. There are several other apartment complexes in the area with similarly priced rent.
You should definitely consider staying in here if you want to find a good apartment complex in Ithaca!
I have been in Ithaca for five years and stayed in University Park Apartments for my last year in town. I initially helped my friend who came to Cornell as a postdoc to find an apartment here and then I decided to move here myself because I need more space for my growing family. The apartment itself is big! Lots of storage room inside the apt. The apartment complex is very quite and nicely maintained. The location is the best in town if you don't have a car! You can walk to a small shopping center within 3 min. The shopping center has an Asian food store (Tofu market), a Northeast pizza store, a laundry mart and some other small business. The property managers Justin Kimball and Jamie Heroux are the best! Super nice and very professional. For me, the most important thing is a clean, well-maintained, safe, quiet and reasonable-priced apartment. If that's what you're looking for, you should check out University Park Apartments when you look for a home to stay in Ithaca!
A great place to live. I enjoy my life here very much
I lived at University park for one year at 2016. I am very pleased with my life here. The landlord is very nice and easy-going. The maintainance is very efficient. I enjoy emailing lanlord very much. This area is very convinient and quiet. The environment nearby is great. A park is nearby. I see parents playing with their kids a lot. We have plenty of parking lot that I never worry about my car here. I actually don't need my car to work. the bus stop is at 2 minuts walking. TCAT has a very good schedule that following it makes my rythm perfectly healthy. Meanwhile, I like the Asian market nearby (2 min walk). The CFCU and Tompkins banks are also very close. Great location, nice landlord, safe and quiet environment. And most importantly, the price here is very reasonable. I strongly recommend this apartment.
excelent long-term rental at UP
I lived at University Park Apartments for 11.5 years and I never had a problem with these people. They are very easy to work with, understanding, friendly, flexible, and accommodating, always ready for you. If something goes wrong in the apartment, they will fix it as soon as feasible, without a fuss. I went there in extremely difficult life conditions; renting at University Park was pivotal in stabilizing my life; it helped me recover, get two graduate degrees, rebuild a family, publish several books, and ultimately move out when I could buy a house. The management at University Park is kind to everyone living there. I have seen that apartment complex transform from a place mostly for Cornell graduate students to a very diverse and inclusive community, in an always friendly environment—from all perspective angles you can take. The place is quiet, safe, and conveniently located, on main bus route: not far from shopping places but not too close to the busy and noisy parts of Ithaca; it takes you 12 minutes to get to the Cornell campus by bus, 15 minutes by bicycle. I have had an excellent overall experience at University Park and I recommend living there to everyone looking for a place to rent.

City - Ithaca
Nestled in the Finger Lakes region of New York, Ithaca is perhaps best known as a college town—home to both Cornell University and Ithaca College. Youthfulness and intellectualism shape life in Ithaca, from the happening nightlife scene in Ithaca Commons and Collegetown to the plentiful, world-class museums and Sagan Planet Walk.
It’s hard to miss the extraordinary natural beauty that surrounds Ithaca. With over 100 waterfalls and close proximity to the largest of the Finger Lakes, Lake Cayuga, there are endless opportunities to engage in outdoor recreation. Plenty of free summer concerts, art museums and galleries, farm-to-table restaurants, shops, breweries and cideries, theaters, and trails ensure that Ithaca always has something more to see and do.
