Heritage HallsRate This Apartment
Be warned- parking here is a total nightmare. The parking lot is literally a mile away from the complex. There\'s also not much of a social life at Heritage. The RAs are overzealous and make it feel like your being babysat. Do yourself a favor and live off campus.
I rented from fall 2017 through winter 2018.
I wish I never lived in Heritage. If you want a place where you’re treated like a child, this is the place for you. If you want to be an independent adult who doesn’t need an RA telling your significant other to leave at 11:55pm or tell you to deep clean your dorm
On your worst week of mid terms, threatening to fine you if it’s not clean enough, then don’t live here. Also, when you do the math, what you pay to live at Heritage is the same price you would pay at the Village for a private room.

I loved living at Heritage. It is convenient and most buildings are pretty new. The biggest downside is the lack of parking (unless you\'re there for spring/summer term) and the fact that the rent begins 2 months before you start living there, so it isn\'t as good a deal as it seems. I have enjoyed the wards and social life, although some have a disparity between levels of women to men. I\'ve had a fantastic time living there, and wouldn\'t mind living there again. It is perfect for Freshman, but the 19 and older community is growing well.
I rented from fall 2016 through fall 2018.
The ONE thing about Heritage Halls that bothered me was the fact that there\'s no parking close by. It makes it must more annoying to try and have a car. And no one wants to live in Helaman if Heritage is an option. So, that\'s the only downside. Other than that, it\'s HEAVENLY.
I rented from fall 2014 through summer 2017.
Quality was great and it\'s so close to campus you can leave just 10 or 15 minutes before class STARTS. Parking availability and convenience is lacking. Great housing for freshmen. Fun housing events and wards, but as an upperclassmen who\'s already done their college exploring, I would suggest a different social environment. It\'s going to be sad to leave because of the great space, price, and location, but I\'m ready for a new social environment.

I HATED LIVING HERE! PEOPLE ARE RUDE AND DONT RESPECT YOUR SPACE. Management was awful and parking was terrible!!!!!
I rented from winter 2013 through summer 2014.
This is also for the New Heritage since the old is pretty much non-existent. I loved living here and thought everything was really good EXCEPT the parking. It is literally the worst parking you can have on campus and the lot they give us is a 20 minute walk away. So they are perfect if you don't have a car and nearly perfect if you do. I actually rented Fall/Winter 2013-2014
I rented from winter 11 through fall 11.
this is a review for NEW HERITAGE
the newest year I could select was '11, but I began living here in 2013.
I live currently in building 29 on the third floor. The north side of this building (and building 30 for males) has the best view you will find of any other building on campus.
They are brand spanking new, all appliances are good and everything is still new and clean and stuff. Granite counter tops, wifi provided.
there is NOWHERE to park your car if you live here. I've gotten like 5 tickets now for every futile attempt I have made to park my car.
Overall I love it. The ward is good, the people are really down-to-earth, the location can't be beat.
*windows do not open, you cannot use your own router, and there is no TV provided.
I gave landlord a low rating because I don't adore my RA.
I rented from fall 10 through spring 11.
I love Heritage Halls! I lived there as a freshman from Fall '11 to Winter '12. You pay a little more than some off campus housing, but there are no utility charges and the distance to campus is INCREDIBLE. Super social and fun. I love this place.
I couldn't find any posts on New Heritage Halls, so I thought I would take the liberty to help someone out by posting one here. To be clear, these are the NEW buildings they built in 2011 (and are still building right now) that will eventually replace the OLD Heritage Halls.
Alright, so you might have seen a few comments talking about these buildings already. Some person called them the "great and spacious buildings", which is pretty true. They are pretty spacious. And let me tell you-- you won't have much of an issue with space. There are two storage closets, clothes closets, two dressers that fit under the bed for each person, a desk with four large drawers, and additional space under the bed if you so desire. I thought it would be an issue, especially since I drove out with my entire car filled to the brim with stuff, but I got everything moved in with space to spare. Bringing a couple of plastic tubs wouldn't be a bad idea though if you want to keep something in the closet space (which doesn't have a door by the way-- not that it matters, but I was a bit surprised to find out).
Anyway, what this dorm has is quality. Because they are so new, they have been designed very well, they are spacious, shiny, clean, and have everything you could ever need. The basic layout is a kitchen (with enough cupboards to comfortably fit all six roommate's stuff inside), a living room that comes with two couches and a dining table, an entry hall, three pretty large bedrooms for two girls each, two decently large bathrooms with showers and sinks, and a vanity in between for people to get ready in the mornings without hogging up bathrooms. A genius invention. And that's not including the storage closet, which we use for stuffing all our moving-in boxes, and the shelved closet, which has several large, large shelves that can fit pretty much anything. Also to those who were wondering, the kitchen comes equipped with a refrigerator, stove/oven unit, dishwasher, sink, broom/dustpan, an ironing board, and basic cleaning supplies. You DO have to get your own pots, pans, and silverware, however. Oh, and let me just mention that the desks come with a bulletin board and a built-in fluorescent light with an additional electrical outlet. So you don't really need a desk lamp, unless if you really like light.
The dorm rules regarding members of the opposite sex are as follows: they cannot be in your dorm past 11:00 on weekdays, 12:00 on weekends. They can be in the BUILDING an hour past, however, and there is an awesome activity room on each floor that is excellent for that kind of thing. However, no matter what, they are not ever allowed behind the "chastity door", or the door that leads into the bedroom hallway.
Random facts about the buildings that you should know: it is about a ten minute walk from the heart of campus (especially since they finished a new walkway that cuts time down by a TON), there is barely any parking so if you're bringing a car beware that you'll never want to move your car, and all the New Heritage Halls have WIFI, which I don't think the other buildings have. Also, the pet policy is that you can't have anything (even fish), but I keep a pet snail I found outside. I named it Jelly. It's freaking adorable. But not like that is important. :P
As far as what's close by, the Creamery Outlet is a 30 second walk from my building (Building 28) but maybe a minute walk for further buildings. I know that one building they're in the process of building right now is literally next to the main Creamery. Both are good for basic grocery shopping, but the main Creamery has a bit of produce, which the outlet lacks. The outlet does carry, however, basic hygenic materials, cereals, canned foods, cake mix, milk, eggs, cheese, disposable stuff, detergent, and all kinds of stuff like that. So quick shopping isn't an issue. Also, the Life Science Museum is right next to it, as well as the Bell Tower.
A lot of people are concerned about social life when picking dorms. I'm the more reserved type person, so I don't get up and go party or whatever, but the people in New Heritage generally seem decent to me. They don't seem as obnoxious as some of the other people comment about their dorms. But they ARE indeed mostly freshman (with some upperclassmen), so if that scares you, beware. But that's kind of how it is in all on-campus dorms. It isn't that noisy at all though.
I personally find the New Heritage Halls to be a ton nicer than the other dorms, especially if you land 5 other great roommates like I did. We have such a fun time. Oh, and I forgot to mention that I especially love that each building has a piano practice room on floor one. There is a baby grand inside, and it's usually empty during the day. Also, there's a nice playing field right outside the building, which is great if you like playing frisbee or kissing rugby or something like that. I also forgot to mention that the activity room on each floor has an HD Screen TV in it that a lot of people will watch football games on while eating chips and dip and such, so if the social life is a bonus for you, New Heritage is great because you can either choose to be really social and outgoing, or you can choose to be more reserved. Either way, New Heritage accommodates for your personal habits. I never hear anyone complain that it's boring around here, and I've never heard anyone complain that it's too noisy around here.
Get into New Heritage if you can. I think that Old Heritage isn't even an option after this year or next year, actually. If the rumors I've heard are true, they're going to tear down Old Heritage and replace it with more New Heritage. And New Heritage is a ton cheaper than Helaman, which makes you purchase the most expensive meal plan.
Anyway, those are my thoughts on it. I thought someone should talk about New Heritage, since a good review of it doesn't seem to exist anywhere. Happy applying for college! :D
PS, the date is 10/22/12. I am renting from Fall of 2012 to Winter of 2013, but it won't let me do anything past 2011.
