I was extremely happy with living at the Woodlands the past two years. It was a great way to meet new people and the most popular complex to live at it. Maintenance was super fast and that was very important to me, considering the place I lived prior to the woodlands was SUPER slow. I loved the fact they offered so many things there, such as: tanning beds, pool, shuttle to campus/5pts, gym, MOVIE THEATER. Even the clubhouse was open 24:7 and it was a great place to study instead of driving all the way to the library on campus. I would recommend this place to anyone because I am confident that they will love every moment of it!
I have just moved in here and I have to say that i love it! The apartments are really nice along with the clubhouse. They even have a MOVIE THEATER! I also like the fact that they have a shuttle to campus and 5 points. My roommates and I really enjoy living here!
I lived at another apartment complex prior to the Woodlands and I am WAY happier. In the past it took maintenance FOREVER to come. Even to fix the smallest things such as a air filter. At the Woodlands they have an online maintenance thing where you can put in your issue and maintenance will come that very same day. I love the fact I can use the bus to and from campus because parking is super expensive. Not to mention it takes you to and from five points also!! I loved my apartment and it felt like my home away from home. My parents even joked about how they wanted to move here themselves, ha-ha.
I lived here for a year before going abroad (I wish I could have stayed longer!). I liked living at woodlands because I never had a problem getting to/from school or even the football games because the stadium is RIGHT there. Every couple weeks they would have cookouts and pool parties so that made it really fun,t oo. There is a bus that took us to 5pts which was super convenient to not have to get a cab. One time my tub wouldn't drain and the guy came to fix it the same afternoon (never had that kind of service anywhere). All around, I really liked living there and I'd tell all my friends to live there.

Since the day I moved in I had problems getting along with my roommates the only thing management told me I could do is pay an additional $150.00 and move into another apartment. I ended up moving in with even worse people who did things i specially said I did not want in my lease not to mention it took me going in there everyday for almost two months to even get to talk to a manager and be able to move out. Throughout the entire time living there I learned that the managers will take ever cent you have and are impossible to get a hold of if there is any sort of problem. Also even though the apartments are only a few years old the floors already have dents from the furniture and the beams in the town homes are starting to bow out. They put the cheapest quality in the apartments and charge you top dollar for normal wear and tear from living in them for a year. The people here are extremely unprofessional and lie to get you in a lease that you cannot get out of!

I was suppose to move in to The Woodlands August of 2010. I went and toured the community and filled out an application. The leasing agent said that I needed to come back sometime and sign a lease within 30 days to take advantage of their special. I asked him, ""If I sign the lease and something comes up and I have to cancel, will I be able to?"" He replied, ""Yes that is no problem we just have you sign the lease within 30 days of applying so that it is taken care of."" I signed the lease in April and had to cancel a few days after signing the lease. The manager spoke with me and explained that I would owe over $3000 to cancel the lease. I explained to her what her leasing agent told me and she said he was correct that I could cancel but it comes at a price. WOW!!!!! Tiny detail the leasing agent did not mention to me. Of course, I hired an attorney and don't owe them anything but they really tried to screw me. My friends that live at The Woodlands say that they always go over their ""free utilities"" cap, what a joke, and have been charged so many ridiculous fees. Save money and time and go somewhere else.
