Worst complex I have ever been to. Customer service is terrible. It takes weeks for anybody to respond and show any acknowledgement. Most unorganized office. Papers are everywhere, nobody knows how to do anything. Maintenance takes months.

The management talks the talk but doesn’t walk the walk. They take advantage of the fact you’re a young college student and walk over you, that is until you get a parent involved.

The apt inside is great and I like that it came with its own furniture. However maintenance is sometimes slow and I never receive regular mail on time. I do get packages in a timely manner which is something I can count on.

This is my 4th year staying at the Forums. The staff in the office are friendly. The amenities are well maintained. Close to campus. Has a unt bus stop in front of the complex. When I changed buildings there was a really bad pest problem. The past year I had to call the office that my A/C stopped working at 3 times alone in the past year. The maintenance orders are quickly resolved though. Overall I have had a good experience. My first and second year I was in building 4, and it’s extremely close to the train tracks. The train sometimes comes at very inconvenient times of the day such as 2am.

This is my second year living here and id say overrall its been a good experience. The one complaint i feel is the apartment rent is too over priced. Student housing shouldn’t kill the bank

The Forums is great but the biggest downfall is the maintenance. It takes forever to get things done. Community is always pretty clean and nice.

I love living here but the last month has been tainted by work orders never being done. I have waited a month, and talked to staff seven times to get my dryer fixed, and no one has even been by to look at it. I have also had orders in for my washer and oven for a month. Not one work on those. I wish I could give five stars but I am frustrated.

The forum is a good place to spend the college experience. There are myriad things to do like hang out at the pool, go to the recreational center, or just hang with friends.

Paying so much rent for just a little space. My own house back in cedar hill is bigger than this. Tv is too complicated to operate, like why do we have 2 remotes for?

Overall an okay community. Staff and security could be better. Good price for college living and good amenities. However, securityy is a down

Good community but could have better communication through staff and needs more security. Good price and overall good apartments. Good for cheap college living

Great community! I love it here. I am signing my second lease here and don’t regret a thing. Shasta is amazing and cares about her residents!

Its decently clean. Staff is great. I sadly keep missing the events tho. Gate use ton be need code but then they reopened it. Glad they finally cleaned my stairs because it was getting really dirty.

A great place to live. Office staff friendly and informative, pet friendly never had a problem with keeping up maintainance. The apartment itself are well kept the rooms are spacious.

The Forum Apartment has improved massively, I use to not like staying here but ever since the improvements were made I have enjoyed staying here.

The environment is very residential and friendly looking and the building structure is somewhat modern. The rooms are spacious and privacy good

Living at the forums has been amazing. Love how it’s close to campus and the environment is friendly. The furniture suits well with the apartment living.

The forum at Denton offers a beautiful gated community, with spacious housing, outdoor patio, wide range of parking spaces for residents and visitors. Management is very attentive and always close of reach.

I love living here, it’s been such a great experience and the amenities are amazing. The staff are so helpful and nice and anytime you need maintenance to fix something it gets done as soon as possible

Alright place to live, gives me what I pay for. The staff is nice, and sometimes they’ll have activities to do in the office. Fun place to live.

The forum is a pretty nice place for it being student apartments. Would reccommend it to anyone looking for a decent apartment complex whose a college student.

The Snow fell hard this winter, slowly melting in cupped fingers until it was warm and clear and ran like my heartbeat when I saw you @slamtweet

Great place to live, trash service comes in handy and is one of the many services that i like about living here. Staff is very helpful and easy to talk to

Living at forums has been sweet & sour to say the least. I enjoy the fact that most of my peers live close to me but forums still has a long way to go to compete with the other student living apartments in denton. However, for the cost, it's perfect.

The staff is nice but I have been waiting on a new tv for 3 months now other then that the apartments are really good and affordable and the rooms are spacious
