Resident Reviews

submitted by Jessica W. - |Recommended: YesGreat — It is very quiet which is nice to come home to from a long day in class and work.
response from property -Thank you for the review. We hope that you continue to enjoy calling our community home.
submitted by Anthony O. - |Recommended: YesWorth it, but could be kept up on better — Same as above. Walkways front door areas need to be pressure washed. But doing so would probably cause alot of water to get inside the apartments since the trimming on the front doors isnt the prettiest. But overall like it. Hence why we resigned our lease.

submitted by Anique T. - |Recommended: YesAmazing Staff — I've been here for about 7 months now and any time there has ever been a question or issue Angelica, Amanda, Oscar or Kelly have been awesome at answering questions and finding a resolution. In addition, the maintenance staff Dustin, Paul Zach have always gone above and beyond. They respond quickly to work requests and are so helpful and friendly. You all have really made living here an amazing experience. Thank-you so much for everything you do

submitted by Hannah S. - |Recommended: YesGenerally a great place to live — I’d say my only complaint about living here is that I do hear my neighbors occasionally but that could just be that they are so loud Maintenance always is super helpful even for my silly problems that can be solved with flipping a switch. The office is so friendly and the event they throw are so cool
response from property -Thank you for the feedback. Please let us know if you continue to encounter excessive noise disturbances and we will be happy to assist you.
submitted by Mia V. - |Recommended: YesUGet What UPay For — ULake is affordable, convenient, and modest. Its location off of Bruce B Downs sometimes leads to stressful traffic and noise but its short distances to USF, Publix, and Target make it worth it. The apartment itself is nothing flashy but the appliances and furnishings are in good shape and recently renovated. The 1 bed 1 bath is super small but the rent is cheap. You get what you pay for. My biggest complaint is that because of the location of my specific building, I never get a close parking spot that is INSIDE the gates. I always park outside of the gates so I never receive the security of parking inside the gates. What's the point of having gates if there are buildings on the property that don't even fall behind the gates It's not like this area of Tampa is the safest, security could be improved here. If you're looking for a quiet community in a convenient location, this might be the place for you. If you're a USF student and want to escape the overpriced rent and obnoxious residents of 42nd street, this might be the place for you.

response from property -Thank you for your review. We are happy to maintain a comfortable community environment.
submitted by Sydney G. - |Recommended: YesI love living at ULake — I love living here, great amenities and staff. The only negative is that I can hear my upstairs neighbors constantly.
response from property -Thank you for the feedback. Please let us know if you continue to encounter excessive noise disturbances and we will be happy to assist you.
submitted by Antonio G. - |Recommended: YesGreat place to live but not to visitor friendly — Apartments and landscape is beautiful and spacious. It would be great if they added a basketball court and made some upgrades to the gym like adding A BENCHPPESS SQUAT machine Also, it would be great if there were more visitor parking. It seems you have to fight for those too much. However, Maintenance is very punctual when it comes to request and ULAKE is a top notch apartment that's been a good living experience so far.

submitted by Brianna E. - |Recommended: YesGreat pros and nearly no cons for a convenient price — I am only staying here for a couple of months because I graduate this semester, but I love my apartment. I got a furnished one bedroom and while they provide the necessities, the 50 extra a month has probably saved me thousands I have an Ikea obsession . Utilities included is what sold me on the complex besides for its proximity to USF and the amenities. A con for me is because this use to be section 8 or hud type of housing, you can't regulate your a.c. and heating. It is not a big deal because we live in Florida, but it does suck not to be able to have heat if the chiller is on or vice versa if the boiler is on. My only complaint would be the parking. The complex itself has a lot of parking but because my apartment is upfront and near the gates, residents from three buildings compete for parking. If people were to park near their respective building, it wouldn't be an issue or if the complex offered assigned parking. Other than that, everything has been great Most people keep to themselves and my neighbors at least are relatively quiet, so besides the occasional dog barking, the complex has excellent quality and comfortability.

submitted by Anna G. - |Recommended: YesAffordable and well kept — Ulake is affordable, plenty of parking. Gate malfunctions every now and then. Has the bare essentials needed such as unlimited usage of utilities.

submitted by Leigh J. - |Recommended: YesAwesome maintainents crew is great — I would like to say thank you to Dustin, Paul, and Zach. I had an issue with the hot water in my apartment so I put in a maintainents request in and they showed up the next day and fixed my issue no only efficiently but quickly. They are always pleasant and friendly

submitted by Jeanluc B. - |Recommended: YesOverall more than I expected for the price paid. Extremely satisfied. No issues that were not able to be fix. — Overall quiet and peaceful place to live. The Staff is very friendly and helpful. All the staff members have been helpful every time. Oscar has been helpful when answers or help was need on anything. Only problem I've was with my door but maintenance was able to fix my door within 24 hours. Never had an A C or bug problem. Once in a good while, like once every two months, the water may shut down early in the morning because they are fixing something. It would not last past 3 hours. Trust me, other places have problems like that more frequently. It rarely happens here. Overall great place to live as a USF student.

submitted by Maria Z. - |Recommended: YesGreat Place — This place is a great place to live at. The location is perfect for USF students, even if you are not a student, the location is great. Easy access to I-75 and I-275 It is such a beautiful location as well. You don't feel like you are in the city when you take a stroll around the property. The lake adds to the peace and serenity of my walks, but the grass is always so green, the trees make you feel like you have a small piece of the Forrest with you.
