I lived there for a year and the management is horrible. It was also a long drive in the morning to get to class. It is cheap but there are places closer to campus that are better and not far from it.
I have a friend who lives in Boardwalk. Overall, the apartments are very nice. I do know that my friend complains about management and he is moving out as soon as possible. Also, pets are not allowed.
Never lived there but I was real close to signing a lease until I read over it. The rent was cheap and it was all inclusive but I couldn't do it after i also read a few bad reviews about it. I heard they have a shuttle too which would be so nice to have right now.

Finding off-campus housing is easy. There are many apartment complexes and houses located within walking distance of campus. Most are located right behind the Strip, so students can walk to class and the bars, restaurants, and grocery store. Off-campus housing can be close to the price of living on campus if you look in the right places. However, watch out for companies that try to take advantage of students. Living off campus has its ups and downs. It gives students individual time and more freedom to do whatever they please. However, this freedom costs money. There are many places that have low rent, but it's the utilities that end up costing the most.
The University Downs is a popular apartment complex and is fairly inexpensive, but it's not the closest to campus. Students have to wake up earlier for class since traffic can be hectic, but most don't mind because the freedom makes up for it. The University also owns some apartments that are located next to the stadium. But don't wait too late to find your dream house because the good ones are taken fast in Tuscaloosa. If off-campus living is what you choose, be prepared to leave early for class, unless you live close enough to walk.
