With the changing of management, and all the renovations, it’s been all very hectic but the staff has been trying their best to make everything work out as smoothly as possible. I’ve had bad experiences and great experiences, and it genuinely boils down to how you treat the space they provide you.
I’ve had a few instances of mismanaged emails and notifications, to the point where I was almost evicted due to miscommunication about my auto-pay being discontinued as they updated their site, but that’s not even that big of a deal for me. It is pricey as anything, but it’s convenient enough because it’s a five minute walk to the civic square building where most of my classes are and the apartment is such an upgrade from dorm life that I just don’t care. There could definitely be more events hosted, and not having access to amenities (that were listed as reasons for moving in) for the first semester was really not ideal, but I’m sure moving forward Greystar will manage much better. Rockoff Hall was good in that it felt homegrown, and SoCam290 is specifically much more corporate but that isn’t really a drawback. They have deeper resources now, and are trying to remain personable and friendly, even as the upgrades to the facilities make it feel almost too removed. The mail system as a whole is a strange, innavigable mess at times but they’ll probably make it function, given time.
