Positive: Glenwood is close to campus, very social, has a crazy good maintenance crew. Literally. I sent in a work order and they showed up in 5 minutes. Every time. Lots of parking. Great social scene...you can just walk down the hallway and knock on every door in your ward in seconds.

Negative: Uh...they say you pay $275...but I averaged $345. Add $15 PER MONTH for parking. $10 for internet, somehow $20-30 for utilities EACH (don\'t ask how that happens when we NEVER turn on the heater/AC). And beware: it\'s super old. Beds are on cinderblocks. Mold on the baseboards. Basement is super humid...windows always have moisture on them. Just take that into account. It\'s not terrible, but it\'s a bit of shock at first.

I rented from fall 2015 through winter 2016.

I stayed in a premium apt, so it was more expensive, but WAY nicer than the standard ones. In the premium you get a nice leather couch, island in the kitchen, all the cabinets are nicer and newer, and the chairs are as well. I think with rent, parking, utilities, and whatever else they charge I was paying like $350/month (shared premium).

This place is pretty nice. The mgmt throws some parties here and there, which were always fun. Cleaning checks were a breeze with my RA. We only needed maintenance done like twice, but they did it within a couple days.

BE AWARE, they (meaning UPE, not Glenwood) tow MERCILESSLY here. If you don\'t have a parking pass, make sure you leave within a few minutes of midnight (1:30 on Friday nights) or you will definitely get booted and robbed of $60. Speaking of parking, they don\'t have enough permits for all the residents, even with the overflow. I had to park at the hotel behind building 4 for like 2 months, but they never booted or towed me.

About a 15-20 minute walk to campus. Close to the stadium and other apt complexes.

Overall, Glenwood is nice, if you get a premium. I would recommend it.

Rented from Fall 2015 to Winter 2016, but it won\'t let me put that in the dropdown boxes.

I rented from fall 2014 through winter 2015.

The management is poor and the business practices are shady. The apartments are run down. One time my ceiling fan broke and the fan blade flew off and almost hit me in the head. There are a number of hidden charges in the contract. The management lost my roommates rent a number of times. I was working at 4 in the morning and asked for some help because our neighbors were playing very music and yelling profanities at 2 in the morning almost every night, and after they wouldn't stop even when we talked to them 5+ times we asked the management for help and they said they wouldn't do anything about it. I put in a maintenance request a month and a half ago to fix our front door (which will not latch shut, so it will never close) and nothing has happened. Every time I talk to them about anything they just proceed to tell me I am wrong and there is no problem. Also, the internet never really worked and they always blamed us as residents for it. I had an extremely poor experience, do not live here.

Don't allow yourself to get desperate and sign a contract at Glenwood because it's the whole thing left in the middle of August. Hated it.

I rented from fall 10 through winter 11.

Glenwood is an absolute joke. They tow you for no reason, charge you for internet that doesnt work, purposely dont post pictures of the inside of their apartments on the internet, give you a plywood bed to sleep on, sell more parking passes than they have parking spots.... and the list goes on. Take my word and please look elsewhere for off campus housing

After doing the math from the google reviews, 15% of people who live here have a good experience. I would compare living at glenwood to living at the homeless shelter in downtown salt lake. Management is horrible. They care for their tenants about the same amount as Hitler cared about the Jews. Internet is probably the worst thing about glenwood, its so bad I can't think of even one positive thing...oh wait, other humans live here to console you if you get trapped into living at glenwood as well. Should you live here? Jacob 6:12

This apartment charges WAY too much for what it's worth. The manager is also a pill to work with and tries to charge you left and right. Really just was a huge mistake to live here. Everything in the apartment is falling apart, because well, they haven't remodeled them in ages. And it's very clear. The location and social aspect are the only decent components of this complex. And the social thing can depend on the individual. The rooms are tiny and the apartment itself is not nearly big enough to acquire 6 people. Definitely consider other options.

I rented from 2013-2014. It's called Glenhood for a reason. It was pretty social down in the hood but for the price, the rooms should have been WAY bigger. If you can, try to get the remodeled upgraded apartment, they are nice.

DO NOT LIVE HERE. The manager, Christa Hines, is horrible. While living here she made and accident with my deposit charging me two deposits and then refused to pay me one back and on top of that I only ended up getting half of the other one. She is horrible to work with. There are so many hidden fees, every semester you will be charged a $35 non refundable fee for cleaning that they don't tell you about. For the $210 they make per apartment off that you do not receive hardly any cleaning. On top of that they will lead you to believe that your utilities will be $15 per month but at the end of every semester you will receive another bill for excess utilities every semester. If they screw up your billing even once like they do with most people you will end up spending far more than just $285 per month. Plan to spend closer to $320 and for that price you should save yourself the hassle of dealing with horrible management, filthy and incredibly outdated apartment, black mold on the ceilings, clogged drains, and everything else and just live somewhere that's actually worth that much money. Furthermore, Glenwood is entirely paid off and for how much the owners make they do not put any of it back into the apartments. The main benefits are the wards are great, social life is good, and the maintenance crew is quick. Altogether, it's the worst place I lived in Provo and despite the positive attributes, it is not worth your money or trouble.
