This apartment was interesting. There were 3 people per room and the rooms were "larger" than normal. Meaning, it effectively could have handled two people and instead were cramming 3. There was hardly any closet space. Since there were no dressers, you had to use the closet and it didn't fit. I'm a guy and I don't have THAT many clothes... The desk was awful. They assume that for 3 college students, one small church-sized table can fit 3 computers and any study space. In the other room of my apartment, one resident had his desktop and that took up most of the table.

The internet was rather poor. You had to provide your own router which was a waste since they have no upgraded to Google Fiber. They didn't have it finished when I left for the summer but it was almost done.

The ward was the hardest part. The ward is your building. The guy/girl ratio was not 1:1 like they advertise (a big selling point) and was no where near it. On the ward records it was 8:1 guy/girl. Don't get me wrong, the people are very nice but a little more on the "out-cast" side of Provo/BYU.

Parking was great. There was always tons of spots and it's free. There's an above ground ramp and underground that always have rooms (one car sat with popped tires the entire year underground and there was no worries)as well as on the street there's always room. That's probably the nicest part about these apartments.

The management was friendly but seemed generally oblivious to the charges they were posting. The bills they sent were very confusing to read and included the previous month's charges applied to a credit from the month before and added utilities for the current month. I (a physics/finance major) struggled to differentiate and it led to monthly asking the manager why I was being charged for things. Honestly, it never was more than $285 a month total so it wasn't a big deal but I prefer honesty and transperancy inside of a contract.

I feel that for a shared room for F/W for what you get, the price should have been around $200 flat per person. That means each apartment would have netted $1,200 a month which is far more than what these are worth and cost to run. Just my opinion based on Supply/Demand.

I would not return unless necessary. I feel there has to be better options for the money. If you're a minority or a female looking to find a guy, this is the place for you. If you are looking to meet a girl, stay far away...

(I rented F/W 2013-2014 but this site isn't allowing me to put that)

Look, I've lived in a lot of places near BYU. I've lived in some cheap and trashy apartments. While the price here is low, the reality is you can get a lot nicer places in the same range. The rooms are tiny (I called mine the "Harry Potter Room" because it was basically a closet under the stairs) and the building is in general disrepair.

Management did a really poor job of taking care of problems. We spent 2 months with no carpet after something in another apartment sprung a leak and soaked our walls and floors; it smelled like mildew, and that certainly hurt both our feelings and our social life.
And on two separate occasions, we were charged for a cleaning company to come through to patch up our cleaning checks. The cleaners never came, but they still tried to charge us for it. Pretty classic example of money-grabbing landlords!

I lived here from fall 2010 to spring 2013. I liked living there most years as the ward gets pretty close throughout the semester and it is a lot of fun. However, you can find great wards anywhere you live and the Landlord (Brian) is not worth it. He treats tenants like crap, charges money for anything and everything he can. No matter how good of a tenant you are, you will get almost none of your deposit back. Also you\'ll get charged for carpet cleaning that doesn\'t get done, random maintenance difficulties he will blame on you, and pray he never catches you climbing through a window because you got locked out. Almost everyone who lives there has complaints about Brian trying to rob you blind. So be warned.

I loved living at Bountiful Court. It was not new but cleaning checks each month help. I have lived in new apartments with no cleaning required and won\'t do that again. It always had good parking and the owners obviously care about the residents.

This is a great place to live. The new management is wonderful; very friendly, honest, reliable, and easy to work with. They can be picky with cleaning checks, but as long as you fix it, they usually won\'t charge you. The apartment layout is open and spacious. The kitchen is huge and there are a lot of options for storage. Like most places in Provo, the construction is old but management is slowly renovating the entire complex. You can always find parking on the street or in the parking lot. If you don\'t have a car, the walk to campus is about 10-15 minutes. I lived in a 6 person apartment with 3 girls in one room which was the only bad thing. Overall, I\'d recommend this to anyone!

New manager as of Fall \'11 and I haven\'t had any problems (unlike before). Maintenance is super fast. Definitely an older building, but pretty well maintained compared to what I\'ve seen other places. Cleaning checks are hit and miss. Some months are more detailed than others. The ward itself is pretty great, although the bishopric seems somewhat distant.

Worst management in Provo. The apartment manager is rude to everyone, and refuses to do her job. the owner treats the tenants like an inconvenience. Ward is fantastic, but the manager totally negates that. Its like being a felon.

Amazing place. Management is not always the best, we are charged for many things, and the building is obviously a bit older, but I feel like EVERY apartment building I have ever heard of has had the same sort of things to be complained about. I really don\'t think you can find a better place when it comes to social life and price, and in my opinion, those things matter MUCH more in the long run than difficult management and ghetto-ness.

I loved living here! I agree with the person above if you want a humble abode and a great ward this is the place. The ward was the friendliest, nicest, most social ward I\'ve ever been in. Most of the people are very down to earth and easy going. The apartments aren\'t great quality and it\'s about a 15 minute walk to south campus. The landlord is a jerk as far as I could tell but the managers were always some of the sweetest people I\'ve ever met. Maintenance was faster here than I\'ve ever had it, usually same day or next day. Cleaning checks were pretty harsh. I stayed for two years because I didn\'t believe I\'d ever find a more welcoming social environment.

I live here now (2010) and I have for over a year. I can't wait for the day I move out! They suck. I live in an apartment with 3 people per bedroom. There's one twin bed and one bunk bed. It's awful. They charged a $5 fee for cleaning checks because my roommate was in the shower. They expect you to pause your whole life for cleaning check days. And then they charged an extra $25 the next day when the cleaning check lady came back and cleaned the tub out. When I complained to management (not yelling or blaming the manager), she kicked me out of her office. CRAZY! I hate this place.

Lived there from 03-04 and it was amazing. I absolutely loved my time there. Social environment was really cool because all the aprtments are in the same ward. It's not the nicest place around...but if your looking for a good place for a decent price...thkis is it.

This place sucks! Management is terrible. They would not fix our fridge or anything else in the apartment and on top of that they called us "complainers". Furthermore, after passing my fiance on her cleaning check, the manager went back and failed her and charged her $25, all without telling her about it. I would not live here for anything! Oh yeah, and there are 3 people per room. What a rip off!!

They have cleaning checks during finals!!! Really dumpy. Far enough from campus that it's a hassle to walk but too close to drive. Social life has really gone down the tubes, not as cool as it once was.

Management and maintenance treat you like crap. They take FOREVER to fix things (even when it's an emergency). They are rude to tenants unless you suckups. Since owner/management changed last summer...it was been an incredible pain dealing with how rude they are. (And each bedroom has 3 people)

I lived there from about 2000-2002. They were among the best years of my life. Love the pool in the center. Very tight knit ward. Shared space but rooms are big. Overall and A+

Swamp coolers only, and they didn't turn them on until a week after it got hot (the year I lived there). Nothing central about this air, it all comes straight down into the hallway. The carpet was the most disgusting I've ever lived with. And I hope they're not still doing 3 to a room - it's just not big enough. The rent was way too high for 3 in a room and poor conditions. Maybe they've changed since then?
