Love it here! Management has been extremely quick with maintenance repaires (same day or next day). Close to campus, social wards ranging from 19-23 year olds. Gym sometimes has out of order equipment, but it\'s not bad at all. In my experience the apartments have always been well-kept. Parking...kinda lame if you don\'t have a pass, but that\'s not unusual for south provo housing.

I rented from winter 2018 through winter 2018.

Don\'t. Rent. Here. PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE SIGNING. I guarantee you and your friends can finds somewhere better for cheaper. Plus they force you to sign a year round contract. If you object, they like to encourage you by saying it will be easy to sell the spring/summer part of the contract because these apartments are so popular, but that is a bull-faced lie. About 3/4 of the guys in my ward wanted to move out in the summer for internships or job opportunities outside of Provo/Utah. 1 or 2 guys got lucky enough to sell their contracts (by paying the guys who eventually bought them.) A bunch of guys moved but weren\'t able to sell and they had to just pay the remainder of the year\'s rent as sunken costs, and the rest of us just had to suck it up and live here for the summer. Also, they kick you out a week before finals for the summer term, so even if you resign to staying in Provo and you want to take classes, you are screwed for finals week unless you want to give up even more money just to stay just a few days longer. And to make things worse, the wifi went out during one of the finals weeks, and they took 48 hours to get it fixed. Also, the walkway/stairs leading up to our doors is very disgusting and never clean. And if you fail cleaning checks, they will charge you to send a professional to clean your apartment, but they will never actually send a professional to clean your apartment. Very crappy ownership that takes advantage of students ever since Liberty took over. Renting here is a bad financial decision.

I rented from fall 2016 through fall 2017.

don't take the advertised rent as how much you'll be paying.i ended up paying about 70 dollars per month more than what was due in my contract for "utilities"

Liberty has changed so much for the better. I moved in just after all the apartments got new carpet, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator. We also have a 42" TV with cable in every apartment. Newly painted exterior make it look more modern. It is a great place for a social life and if you get a parking pass, get the underground one.
I rented from Fall '14 through Winter '15.

Paid $250 deposit,was told we had a space for our daughter. Checked with them a month later they were full. Requested to have deposit sent back to our home address. It's been two months and we still have not received our deposit in the mail, after many, many phone calls and promises that it would or had been sent.
Not pleased with the management of Liberty Square. Good at taking your money, but have a hard time, and are slow returning your money after they have filled their apartments

Liberty Square is different now than what it sounds like it once was. In November Redstone Residential took over as management, and they are excellent. They have been doing a lot of remodeling and adding neat new features. They have always responded quickly to repair requests, which have usually been for minor things just because I'm kind of picky that way. Nothing major has broken in my apartment. The cost of a parking permit is exorbitant - about $70-80. Be aware that the wards are mostly just-returned RMs and 18-20 year-old girls. For some reason this place has historically attracted mostly those age groups. If you are any older than that it can be hard to fit in. Our ward (36th ward) also had two houses across the street with girls of ages 24-30, and it was pretty obviously awkward for them. Just be aware of this before you move in. Other than my awkward ward, and the cost being too high for my budget, I love living here and am sad to leave.

I rented from Fall 2013 through Winter 2014.

I just thought that this site needed a more recent rating. At the beginning of fall 2013 we had the old management and I see what everyone means by horrible. We got new management sometime in november and they are awesome! Really some of the best. They are completely re doing liberty square. They painted and put new floor in the gym, remodeled the laundry room, fire pit and key fobs, and a bunch of other stuff. They are painting and putting in the new appliances and tv's in march. This place will be super nice within a couple of months. Social life is great but because of missionary change the age feels kind of young. I had an overall really good experience. I never once got charged, it is definitely very tight parking. With the changes that are happening I might sign another year contract... I rented from Fall 2013-Winter 2014

NEVER rent here! The Management was terrible, I had a man living next door to me who was living with his girlfriend and they constantly were screaming and yelling and having sex. The management refused to deal with it and in turn took it out on me by trying to keep my damage deposit. The rent is too much and the management will try and squeeze every penny they can from you. We were without hot water for almost a week and they refused to compensate us!

I rented from fall 10 through spring 11.
