Jun 2020: Live anywhere else. They’ve had COVID 19 in the building! They are greedy and could care less about anything but making money. Miguel the worst but he’s the only person you can even get to talk to who shares the voice of the corporate greed. They don’t care about college students or their safety, they just want to get paid. Water or air conditioning would be out for days and no relief. You can’t ever talk to anyone other than college students who work there and have no authority. Live anywhere else in Bryan/College Station
Oct 2019: “This review will be edited to better or worse rating based on their response”:
- After living for a month, maintaining Elevators is very poor. Elevators are “usually” notclean and have badsmell. They do notclean them on a daily basis. I have raised the issue that they need to remove the carpets inside the elevators but they have ignored. It is causing the badsmell.
- There are great improvements on maintaining the facility and cleaning the hallways and elevators.
- they have installed cameras in hallways and elevator waiting areas.
- management and front desk staff respond immediately to requests.
- Design of apartment is nice and modern.
- Gym is one of the best things in this place. It got all you need for sure.
- Front desk is nice and employees of front desk are so nice as well. Management team is helpful.
- The hallway’s carpet does notsmellbad but has some spots. Review from Google
Oct 2019: The Standard is a great place to live and the staff is wonderful! Maddie at the front desk helped me out one day and she was super cordial, very professional, and extremely helpful. The Standard is lucky to have her as an employee! The location is as good as you can get and the facility is very clean and well-maintained. Review from Google
Oct 2019: Wow. Where do I even start. Hope and Kailey were so nice at the front desk. They were very helpful when I had some questions about renewals. The customer service of this establishment is indubitably unmatched. Highly recommended. Review from Google
Sep 2019: The staff has been helpful and friendly. It’s just a quick walk away from campus so you won’t get stuck in traffic on your way to class. The inside courtyard is also really cool and a great place to hang out. The gym is pretty sweet too. Review from Google
Sep 2019: The location here is great for getting to the north side of campus as well as all of the restaurants near by. The two story gym is very spacious with lots of machines and equipment. Miguel who is on staff there has helped me a number of times with any work order that I need and the staff as a whole has been very nice. 10/10 would stay at again. Review from Google
Aug 2019: Just moved in. Already so many terrible experiences. We opted for early move-in so with the as-is agreement we figured it was our fault the floors and bathrooms were filthy (toenails/pubes, dirt/grim on both hardwood, carpet, and toilets/showers). However we were very surprised by the “exposed concrete” which we thought meant the room was unfinished (it’s very ugly, the same walls as a parking garage) but after addressing the front desk we found this is actually an “aesthetic choice” - And something that the residents “got used to.”
We also had to put a maintenance request in the first day for the clogged shower drain. It fills so fast it’s impossible to shower.
But, days later, after cleaning everything ourselves, nothing has been fixed. We called about this and the trash situation and were told we’d get a call back with more information - nothing. Upwards of a week later, We approached the front desk on the subject Review from Google
Jun 2019: There's so much...
I live here now...
It could be worse, but the 3 am firealarms have annoyed me to a level where the Staff knows that each time it happens they will see my face.
The staff is nice, but very uninformed...
Only Brooke (the unhappy manager) knows anything and getting info from her us like getting water from a rock. Moses where are you?
I could go on, and I'm sure many others have, feel free to check around...
Also unless you got an early bird special, the Bang for Buck is sh*t...
Especially with all of these Ratings dropping the social value (and therefore market value) with each Star (or lack thereof). Review from Google

May 2019: Love living here! The pool is super cool and staff is really helpful! Definitely will be signing here again next year! Review from Google
Apr 2019: I came in a couple weeks ago because I had a lot of questions regarding my lease and Chase was there to help. He was able to answer all of my questions. very helpful guy! Review from Google
Apr 2019: I went my second time and chase was there to greet me, very helpful and told me about all of the amenities. He walked me through the apartment and was a very nice and helpful guy! I would recommend living here. The place is very clean and it seems like the staff are very helpful Review from Google
Apr 2019: If you like not moving in on time, nothing in your apartment working, or just love the experience of waking up in the middle of the night to the alarm that tells you to evacuate multiple times a week. Then you have found your dream apartment, but for anyone who is sane you might want to look elsewhere.

Mar 2019: Very professional staff, the one girl Hannah was very pleasant to deal with. Awesome place!
Feb 2019: Awesome service, beautiful facilities, super clean, a lot of amenities. And the most important thing very secure!!!
Love this place!!! Review from Google
Jan 2019: The people who work there are nice enough, but they don’t represent the majority of the people who live there. People have thrown trash cans, fruit, and other stuff off the balconies into the courtyard, which wasn’t finished until January 2019. I was told that they would have the earliest move in day, and that the apartment would be finished in May of 2018. It was not “finished” until July, but it wasn’t actually finished. My roommate and I were given temporary accommodations because our apartment wasn’t finished. We didn’t get to move into our actual apartment until September, and we had 1 weekend to move our stuff. They forgot to plaster and paint a wall in our kitchen as well as one in my bathroom. Residents have broken the elevators multiple times, the firealarm is a regular occurrence and is usually around 3 am, and bikes a Review from Google
Dec 2018: UPDATE. Heard about someone who just signed for the Fall. After the STABBING occurred she met with the managers to get out of the contract, in response Brooke Emery told them they could take them to court if wanted. THEY DO NOTCARE ABOUT RESIDENTS.Hopefully since our rent apparently does not include paper for our printers, the standard is not advertising the printers as an amenity on tours, because according to their response, paper/printing is NOT an amenity. Good to know! What a great place to live! Review from Google
Nov 2018: Every newer property has its ups and downs, but it's through trial and error that anything can get better! There may have been a rocky start since opening, but The Standard has done a great job of keeping us informed and providing to us. The staff is also great! They are super outgoing and understanding and willing to help with any questions you may have. I would recommend living at The Standard to anyone who likes well designed apartments and being close to campus and Northgate, because it's a great place to be! Review from Google
Nov 2018: My friends and I signed our lease today at The Standard, and we couldn’t be happier with our decision. The staff was amazing at making sure we were taken care of, especially Gunnar Hughes who gave us our tour and made sure all of our questions were answered. Would definitely recommend to other college students in the area who are looking for an off-campus apartment to live at! Review from Google
Nov 2018: Do not live here if you care about safety! The security here is non-existent. Google "stabbing The Standard College Station" and you will find articles about a recent armed robbery that occurred here. The finalpolice report has not come out yet, but it has been alleged as a drug deal gone wrong.
There were cops searching the vehicles and the garage when I came in. They had one suspect detained on a car hood.
Apparently on my friend’s floor, there was a heavy police presence. She said the police were there from about 7pm till after midnight. So whatever was going on had to have been big!
The Standard does not have enough security guards for this large of a complex. They don’t even have cameras in the hallways or interior of the garage. Review from Google
Oct 2018: I love living here! The gym is great, and has a ton of different equipment for the residents to use. Also, the views from the rooftop pool are amazing, especially the sunsets! The student staff is always super friendly, and the manager, Meg, knows a lot of the residents by name! You really can't get better customer service anywhere else. Review from Google
Sep 2018: The Standard is great! I love the location, the spacious apartments and all of the amenities! The staff is incredibly friendly and is always super helpful with whatever I need. They go above and beyond to help with whatever issue or question I have! Can’t wait to renew 👍🏼 Review from Google
Sep 2018: Please see yelp review in order to view pictures of The Standard that Google would not post.
I've had similar experiences as all the other negative reviews posted here. In addition the garage is awful. There are no mirrors in the garage and I've witnessed multiple near misses. Someone hit one of the yellow concrete pillars in front of me trying to turn too fast.
Be weary of any positive reviews of this place. Most likely these reviews are from management in a futile attempt at regaining credibility. Also, not one apology email has been sent out for any of our troubles.
I believe pictures are worth a thousand words. You can see here the deplorable condition of the trash room which is overflowing into the hallway. Additionally, a picture of us having to evacuate at 1 am and 6 am the morning before classes started.

Sep 2018: It's very funny how you defend the Standard... I know for a fact that you must work for them because if you were a resident paying for a "finished building" that is nowhere near done, you would not have this same opinion. Cut the crap about taking a risk, we were PROMISED and GUARANTEED that these things would be done and they still have yet to complete all of the apartments in the building or any amenity other than the pool. In addition, I have called the front desk (and visited it in person) many times, yet I never get any real results from the staff. Plus there is never a manager available, they all manage to stay busy with future residents throughout the day, instead of taking care of their current paying customers.
Aug 2018: 1. The firealarms are going off because people are pulling them, not because of a malfunction.
2. College is all about "preparing you for the real world". Well, this is it. Things don't often get done on time. Deadlines don't always get met. Sometimes, things happen that are out of the control of people's hands. If you signed a lease for a building, THAT WAS NOT COMPLETE YET, you made the conscious decision to take that risk that it might not get done. If you wanted to guarantee that you would be moving into a finished apartment, then you probably should have signed a lease with one that has been completed.
3. The staff has been nothing but helpful and courteous when any issue arises that a resident might have. They will bend over backwards for you if you simply ask them for their help. If you are having any issues with them, you might find Review from Google
