submitted by Aldo A. - |Recommended: YesGreat location, kinda pricey — Rooms are not super well-insulated, but the location is great...internet is spotty, building managers are timely in their responses though. Kinda pricey, but it is furnished.
submitted by Jacob F. - |Recommended: YesEasy to live in — Easy to access, very close to most Madison amenities, great gym
submitted by Aoife C. - |Recommended: YesTop-Notch Amenities — I love living here The building is beautiful and well-kept. The amenities here are great. I often use the gym and common area to study
submitted by Miyabi O. - |Recommended: YesFriendly staff and great management — The staff of Henry Gilman are friendly and helpful, and the management is great. I also like my apartment which is on the higher level, and faces toward the State street, and thus has a nice view. However, because of this, the noise in my apartment is sometimes intolerable. The student community around this area often hold parties over the weekends, so it is hard to concentrate on my work or study in my apartment. Also, the only point I would like to have renew is a laundry room as it is not very clean, and the laundry machines often get out of order. I also wish to have more laundry machine in the laundry room since all of them are used especially on the weekends.
submitted by Noah S. - |Recommended: YesThe Best Around — Living in the Henry Gilman apartment complex can satisfy the needs of anyone student or not. It is removed from the hustle of the downtown area but steps away at the same time. Very clean community areas with a nice gym, computer lab, and common area. Friendly and diligent staff at Steve Brown Apartments make the transition or move seamless and easy. Only downsides being noise control sometimes, and cleanliness of the hallways via hired workers.

submitted by Wen L. - |Recommended: NoSoundproof is not good, too many spiders — Ceilings too old.
submitted by Catherine D. - |Recommended: YesGreat for living alone — Once you get moved in, the apartment is very cozy and perfect for living alone. Despite being a little older, the apartment is in great shape and convenient and private. Very pleased so far.
submitted by Rachel S. - |Recommended: YesIts fine but the carpet smells — good location, community area and gym included which is really nice
submitted by Thea C. - |Recommended: YesGood but major fruit fly issues — This place is great. Between the cost, view, maintenance efficiency, and convenience of furniture, it's amazing. I can't hear neighbors too well which is great, save for on the balcony, but that makes sense. However, there's a bad fruit fly issue, especially in the warmer months. They come out of the vents in the hall and into spaces, and then end up either in the refrigerator somehow, or around the bathroom, even if you have no trash or rotting food. On average, I'll kill about 40 fruit flies in a day, which is far too many. However, the place is great. The facilities downstairs are great too.

submitted by Lincoln B. - |Recommended: YesExcellent Space, Great Location. — Sublet from another student, wonderful space in a prime college town location.
submitted by Kevin M. - |Recommended: YesLoud construction, nice amenities — Good apartment though loud construction starting at 6 am every morning next door. Nice amenities and facilities, quick responses to questions and problems in general . Appliances are not in the best shape shower leaks constantly, as does the fridge and the oven is hopelessly outdated the markings are so worn you cant even see what side is high heat and which side is low . Beautiful building, nice gym, free laundry is a huge plus.
submitted by Golsee V. - |Recommended: YesLovely apartments, but noise levels can be concerning — This apartment is quite nice. There are many perks to living here and I found my time here quite lovely. Let's start with the amneties Workout room The workout room is almost always empty, which was a PLUS for me since I like working out alone. The addition of the dumbbells earlier this year was great. I always wanted some weights to use while doing squats so that was great. Computer room Printing before class what AMAZING and access to a desktop was always an advantage. Study Area The study area, when I did choose to study there, was quiet and everyone was quite respectful of the area. Sometimes other residents do use the area to watch TV, but it wasn't ever a problem with me. There are also vending machines so when I got hungry or thirsty I could always use them. My one issue with this area was the women's bathroom idk about the men's always smelled like tobacco smoke, and the water fountain near it spouted out some yellowish water for a while there. The plus side on that was that the bathroom was ALWAYS well kept with soap, toilet paper, and hand towel papers always in stock. The Apartment Itself When I first got into my apartment there were minor things, like rusting of the shower head, bathtub drain, and sink drain but after a little cleaning everything was good. Sometimes it may take a little bit of your work to make things nice, and that's okay. The apartment style was quite modern since I did get that kind of apartment, 2nd floor and found it VERY home like. If you make the place yours, it'll feel comfy. My one problem with the apartments are how thin the walls could be sometimes and the noise from outside. Since I'm not too picky about noise, I did find it a problem that I would sometimes get distracted by it. I LOVED THE NATURAL LIGHT of the apartment. With a patio door, lighting was amazing. If you like that natural light whether it's for the aesthetics, for the selfies, for the view... these apartments are amazing for it. Parking Parking is limited and I did find it frustrating when family visited and we had to park either far, or for a short period of time and then having to move the car but it was bearable. Location I feel like this is a good location for a person who doesn't mind a little bit of a walk to classes for students . I found myself definitely working up a sweat when getting to class usually up bascom but it wasn't terrible. BEWARE for all you bus riders who rely on the bus and only the bus the bus stops here aren't too friendly. The closest bus stops have very limited times and you may find yourself waiting for the next bus that will take you to class because of how full the bus can get. If you are trying to go up bascom with the use of the bus, the closest usually available stop will be by the Kollege Klub which you'll have to walk there, but the risk of the bus being full is high as well. Perhaps planning ahead everyday will help, but if you're like me who just does it when the time's up then this will definitely be a problem. Also, there are limited buses that will take you home from classes that are close to this apartment. The best one from near college library and memorial union is the 81 which will take you almost perfectly to this apartment. BUT, if you are coming from somewhere else such as near Union south the buses that will take you close to home is limited. The only routes I was about to really take were the 6 and 4 which will take you onto State and drop you off Kung fu Tea and then you'll have to walk a block home . ON THE PLUS SIDE again though, this location is SUPER close to State Street Overall, I can say this apartment became my definition of home for me this year, but like many other things, there are some cons to living here. It's all up to the person and what they value. Personally, I found this apartment to be within mostly what I was looking for. Thanks for reading my review, hopefully it gave some insight
