I am very disappointed with the Venue. The hallways and stairwells are very dirty and rarely cleaned. Our washer and dryer were broken upon moving in. Our air conditioner has broken twice (they charge us for repair parts). I also feel that Scion doesn’t care very much about their tenets. They just want to take as much money from their tenets as possible whether it’s parking, fees, or ridiculously high rent prices (that are raised $20 per month each year for “an increase in property value”). I also doubt the integrity of the utility prices. They use a third party to track it (we have to pay for the fee for the third party), and my utility bills seem to fluctuate up or down roughly 50% each month for seemingly no reason. I will not be living here another year.
The Venue the last three years has been nothing short of amazing for me! The staff was very friendly and very nice to me during my time here. The apartment has great amenities like rooftop and poolside view to Regions field and gated parking which made me safe and comfortable here. I would totally recommend staying here and Jennifer and her staff treated me great and always check on me if I needed anything for my apartment.
I love living here at the Venue. As a woman, feeling safe has always been of great importance to me. So I love that the facility is gated and has resident-only key fob access to everything: the stairwells, access to get in the building, and even to use the elevators. I love waking up every morning getting to view the field. It’s so refreshing. I also love how the staff at the Venue do monthly things to get residents involved. My most favorite has been the poolside Yoga lead by an instructor, the Thursday night trivia games, and the monthly food trucks. Oh and there are always opportunities to get free food delivered right to your door. The staff has had pizza, Chick-fil-A, and even cheeseburgers delivered right to our doorstep. Who doesn’t love free food? The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Maintenance requests are fulfilled in a timely manner. And I’ve never felt threatened by the maintenance crew. Also if you work downtown, your commute is a gift. I love being only 2 minutes from the hospital. I sometimes even walk to work, and it takes about 5 minutes. I would definitely recommend living here. You get what you pay for. Might as well treat yourself to the best. We only live and die once anyway!
Great property, and kind staff! I've been here for a year and even minor inconveniences are handled promptly. Great location for UAB students, and good sized rooms.
I moved here in July and have loved it ever since!! I would highly recommend moving here if you are a college student!
