Excuse the long review but I feel that all must know
So I spent only one semester here before I decided it was time for a change. It was rough for the first few months but after a while I was able to get used to how \"clicky\" it was. would I ever go back? Most likely not. So I\'ll start with a list of pros:
-it has a pool and hot tub
-nice fire pit and grill
-it has a gym
-the office is pretty nice (the condition of the office, not talking about the management)
-management is chill; I didn\'t really have problems with them although I could see why people do get pissed with them
-if you like the \"clicky\" college life; that is you like to chill with ex jocks, tools and cheerleaders or \"has beens\" in high school, this place is for you. (for me at least, I\'m not that kind of person. What you were in high school does not dictate who you are as a person).


cons:

- nasty bathrooms. When I arrived to my apartment, the inside of the tub was green and there was mildew on the walls.

-it looked as if when the repairs were made, a 4 year old from my mom\'s preschool cut the piece of plastic to cover the tub to the wall; i\'m no craftsmen but I do know how to use a saw and cut a straight line.
-the tub/ shower really isn\'t even a real one; they just bought a plastic insert at home depot and just glued it to the wall.

-you pay 350 bucks a month to a share a room in a clicky area yet you can find other places that charge the same price with your own room.
-to me, internet isn\'t life and death, but when you are a full time student who has to turn in papers and read pdfs, it can be a real life and death situation. I had to go down to the village and use my friend\'s wifi for 3 days at the start of UVU\'s winter semester just to do homework.

- the washers and dryers absolutely SUCK!! The washers would not wash my clothes; put it this way: I wear white pants as it is required for my job and my pants would come out of the washer still with the same stains that I had sprayed days before with oxi clean stain remover. I had a few buddies who lived in the manavu apts across the street, used their washer, boom problem solved. Stains gone and oh yeah, my pants smelled like detergent when I took them out.
-if you think the washers suck, the dryers are even worse. They make your clothes smell like someone\'s sweaty gym clothes were just in the dyer about 30 min before you put yours in. I would buy the strongest smelling lavender dryer sheets and still, my clothes would come out smelling like a sweaty pair of gym shorts.
-you don\'t have a pantry. At least for me. I lived in the concord building and man, I walked in and saw a Rubbermaid put together 50 dollar black plastic shelf that you\'d see in your dads garage to store is tools, flats of water, etc. But really??? as a pantry? come one, we ain\'t that ghetto!
-Parking is really hard. I had a parking pass during summer so that was really helpful but between January and May, it was so hard to find parking, especially if you are a student who has a desire to work and sustain yourself, it was so hard. I would get home around 10 or 11 at times and boy,, it was impossible.

-we had no a/c during the summer...……… enough said.

So with all of this said, I hope that whoever reads this benefits from this review. Again, my hope is that you read this and benefit from the review. Again, Social life is great if you enjoy clicks. if not, don\'t move here. If you want the genuine \"apartment feel\", don\'t move here. they just feel like freshman dorms. If you are a BYU student who just needs a place to live close to campus, this is the place for you.

I rented from winter 2018 through summer 2018.

My car got booted after living there for 3 months because i was given the wrong parking sticker for underground parking. Management was great at getting my account credited for their error. Love the location, very central to everything in Provo.

I rented from fall 2017 through spring 2018.

The only redeeming qualities at Liberty Square are the amenities, location, and social life. If it weren’t for those, this place would be a joke. Cleaning checks are a joke, the rent is pretty high, and the management isn’t very good. But hey, it’s all about what you want to pay for

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.

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.

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
