“The Best Student Housing Tuscaloosa Has to Offer…”


        I absolutely love living here. Management is so friendly and always works very quickly to answer any questions or solve any problems. It’s so great that I’ve already renewed my lease for next year!! There are so many ways to get involved in our community. We have fun get togethers put on by management, fun competitions, and random giveaways! Hillside Commons is in a great location! Super quiet, safe and secure, and less than a mile to campus! People can’t believe how great of a deal we get when I tell them my low rent price and all of the amenities that come included! 10/10 would recommend Hillside Commons!"

        I have lived at Hillside Commons, formerly known as Point of View Apartments, for six years. As a longtime resident, I have to say that there is nothing but positive change that has occurred since College Town Communities took ownership of the property. The staff has worked tirelessly to improve the overall quality and livability of the property. In addition to updating the interior/exterior of each building, renewing the landscape, modernizing security procedures, and adding perks to being a resident (hello Internet and cable! - included in the rent), the staff at Hillside Commons is a pleasure to work with! They are professional, friendly, and extremely helpful. The maintenance staff is attentive, reliable, and extremely personable. You can definitely tell that resident satisfaction is the number one priority when you live at Hillside Commons! Overall, this is a great place to live. It's in a great location, close to UA campus and all Tuscaloosa attractions, but it doesn't have the constant hustle and bustle of your typical off-campus apartment complex. When you live at Hillside Commons, it quickly becomes your new home!

        Okay y'all, going through a property management transition is never easy BUT staying with Hillside Commons was a stellar decision. The maintenance department is wildly responsive and knowledgeable (we're talking always same-day fixing here!) The management is personal and goes above and beyond to attend to the needs of all residents. Even the sidewalk stays nice and clean under their care (seriously, pressure washed.) The quality that College Town Communities aspires to is extraordinarily high, but they work tirelessly to see it actually happen. I highly recommend living here. You're minutes from campus but just outside enough to avoid the traffic! I've been here for years and it's truly home.
