Jan 2019: I currently live here and I like living here... as long as I don’t have to deal with the front office. If you want a place with consistent office hours, this ain’t the place. Office randomly closes at any hour of the day with zero explanation of why or when they’ll return (though usually it’s the next day) and chances of them answering the phone is about equal to your chances of winning the lottery.
So if you like to online shop- consider a P.O. Box at the post office. Review from Google
Dec 2018: 4050 Lofts is a great student living apartment! The office is always helpful when needing anything and maintenance is always on top of things! The apartments are cozy and comfortable and I’ve enjoyed the layout of the rooms! I would recommend living here! Review from Google
Dec 2018: I have enjoyed living at 4050 lofts. The apartments for the most part were clean when I moved in, and the atmosphere is relaxed. I appreciate that the administration makes an effort to hold events for our community to take part in. I found some small issues in my room when I moved in, including a burn mark on my desk and a broken shower drain. Review from Google
Dec 2018: I've lived here for over a year now and I can honestly say I love the environment. Its been wonderful. Its well priced and the staff is agreeable and helpful. If I wasn't moving to another state I'd renew my lease. Review from Google
Dec 2018: I moved in this past fall of 2018 and absolutely love living here! I love that there is lots of parking and my apartment is very close to the elevator! Me and all my roommates decided to resign for next year. If anything breaks you can expect maintenance to handle it with 24-48 which is great compared to the last place I lived. I would say it’s a great environment for any college student! Review from Google
Nov 2018: I had no idea where I was going to live until I met a leasing consultant named Sean. He was very friendly and gave my friends and I a great deal. The place itself is clean and neat. I highly recommend. Review from Google
Nov 2018: I’ve been living at 4050 for my first semester here at USF. The facilities are in very good shape and the people who work in the office are super nice and super helpful. The pool area is always well-maintained and the parking lot is helpful for visitors because the visitor lot is located right in the front. As a college student, it is a benefit to live here because there are mostly other college students living here as well. Overall, 4050 lofts is a great option for one looking for student living. Review from Google
Nov 2018: The apartment is pretty nice but the service I was received was even better. The staff member Marisa was super helpful. She was able to answer all of my questions about rent, service requests, packages and more. Review from Google
Nov 2018: I definitely recommend living at 4050 lofts. I have lived here for 2 years now and have loved the experience. The rooms are quality and the location is perfect. I can walk to class and parking is free. It is the only apartment with this prime location and also great pricing. Review from Google
Oct 2018: Make sure to ask someone where you can park! If you don't, you'll end up like me - a broke college kid having to pay $150 to get his $900 car back because this place is too cheap to put any signs or clearly indicate towaway zones. The manager was sweet enough to offer me a map so that it doesn't happen again though :) They're also too cheap to clean any of the hallways and elevators. I'll go back to eating my Ramen Noodles now since that is all I can afford, thanks 4050 Lofts.
I have been visiting these apartments regularly for 3-4 months now, and I have never noticed any spots labelled anything other than "Reserved" and "Compact". UNACCEPTABLE that I can visit so many times and NOT ONCE notice a visitor parking spot until it is too late.

Aug 2018: DONT MOVE IN! DO NOTWASTE YOUR TIME/MONEY STUCK WITH THIS PLACE.
DONT BE FOOLED FOR THE 4 STAR RATING.
This place is not worth the rent. I’ve moved in at better places for similar rent (all in 42nd) and it was totally different.
I started having problems even before moving in (staff is not capable of getting things done and miscommunication is huge).
We were told we were going to get a room in the building A and were given one in B. But that’s ok, decided to let that go.
What really is disrespectful is the conditions you find the apartment in.
As soon as I open the apartment,even it was prepared for 4 new incoming residents, it was dirty and seemed like they spent 10min “cleaning it”.
The floor was slippery, the sink was full of dirt marks , upon coming to the bathroom there was a cockroach in the tube, furniture is old and you can se
Jun 2018: Pros:
Fast and nice maintenance
Lots of bathroom storage space
Decent business room -bring your own paperCons:
Limited guest parking spots (plenty of room on the sides in compact parking)
They tow like crazy. No sticker basically turns biblical and you better have that on your car like the blood was on the doors and you don’t want to lose your first born child
Internet fizzles out after 1am
Roommates have their boyfriends live there and the common areas become unclean and when confronted they promise to handle it later and that their unclean habits aren’t a big deal
Building B pool isn’t always open on both sides
Gym and package pick up hours are limited
A/C breaks constantly
Excessive litering - people sitting trash next to the dumpster (seriously)
Paperthin walls- hello insomnia

Jun 2018: How many apartment staff members can you think of that will take the initiative to stop what they are doing and offer to help you get your car started ...and succeed? Not many. 4050 also keeps their residents updated regularly with emails. Anytime I had a problem, 4050 fixes the issue within that day, on some occasions even within a few hours of submitting it. The office staff seem professional and welcoming as well. The only downside is the amount of money spent per month here. The other reviews are correct, there are cheaper places for the same amenities around USF. Thank you, 4050.

Apr 2018: I’ve lived here for the last two years and it’s been an awesome experience! Staff is always helpful and there’s always some coolevent going on. It’s perfect for international students if you don’t have a car, it’s s short walk to campus and right next to it’s own bus stop. Had some great experiences here ! Review from Google
Apr 2018: I have been here for a year now and its been a decent experience. I'm not too fond of the specific room that I got but the location is great. It's the perfect distance from school plus we have our own bus stop. The only issues I have is that occasionally on the weekends the Frat house across 42nd street can get very loud if you live in building A. I have also had issues with roaches in the apartment that crawl through the vents and have called for pest control on multiple occasions. Other than that the staff is nice and I love the gym.

Apr 2018: I have lived here at 4050 Lofts for three years while going to college and it has been great overall! It is reasonably priced compared to the other places in the area. All the staff is friendly and helpful. If I ever put in a service request, it was completed within a day! Also I love that the complex comes with the resort style pool, a tanning bed, and a 24 hr gym. I used all of those frequently and they are great. Highly recommend 4050 Lofts! Review from Google
Apr 2018: I have enjoyed living at 4050 Lofts. The staff is friendly and approachable. Maintenance requests are usually completed in a very timely manner. The view from the balcony is beautiful at sunset from the placement of my room. I live in the back building and cleanliness is average, but could easily be improved by implementing more trash cans. Parking is included with rent which is always a plus. Review from Google
Apr 2018: 4050 is a quaint place to stay. (: As a student, it’s very close to school which is a bonus. Maintenance team is amazing and quick to requests & the front office staff is always happy to help. They’ve also made a good home for my kitty which I know most places would not have taken him. Life is better in a loft ❤️ Review from Google
Apr 2018: I’ve lived here for 8 months and I’d recommend this place. 4050 has all the features that you can ask for student apartment in USF area. Staffs are friendly and nice, rent is not so very crazy(at least what I’m paying) and has overall okay features. Gym is small but has almost everything you need, and pools are nice but sometimes too loud until late. Clubhouse area has cool vibes but is only opened during the office hours so you won’t really get to use it a lot. Wall is somewhat thin but I think it’d be the same for all the student apartments or dorm. If I say one thing I didn’t like, rooms are pretty dark. I bought 4 additional lights in my room including study lamp but it’s still dim to study. If you don’t have a car, bull-runner stop is right in front of the main entrance. If you have a car, parking lot is big enough for you Review from Google
Apr 2018: Most of the staff and maintenance are really friendly and helpful. Lots of free giveaways etc. However certain staff seem at times bent on finding any and all ways to fine residents or charge extra. I have also had bed bugsproblems when I first moved in. Review from Google
Mar 2018: I have lived here for about 7 months and I have an honest review for people looking into living here.
Nice office staff
Quick service with work orders
Areas around apartment are usually clean
The pool view is niceCons:
Office staff are nice until you have actual concerns to ask them about... concerns listed below
First, I was offered $20 off every month of rent if i signed a lease by a certain date. I did as the agreement said, however for at least four months I had to continually fight with the leasing office about this incentive they gave me. Apparently no one had written about my incentive in the notes on my account... “Great customer service”. Finally after 4 months they got it right! BRAVO! So, make sure if you are offered an incentive that it is in writing so you are not cheated.
Secondly, I got a new car while living he Review from Google
Mar 2018: Do not live here if you like sleeping. Even if you have respectful roommates, you will hear 100% of what they are saying, whether they be in the common area or the room next to you. The management waived other people's transfer fees for no good reason, and not mine despite having roommates who had the cops called on them multiple times for noise. Now I am in a room next to a very loud person who stays up late despite me putting an early morning preference for roommates. Just don't live here, your life will be better anywhere else. Review from Google
Feb 2018: I am not normally one to write reviews but If I would have known what I know now about 4050 lofts, I would not have moved here in the first place. Please don’t be fooled by the 5 star reviewers, as the Apartment staff bribes residents with prizes for leaving these reviews. My experience here has been far from convenient and more of hassle. I had to fight to with the office and maintenance on multiple occasions. They refused to replace my washer and dryer after multiple complaints of them not functioning properly. I had moldy air vents for a month and a half, which I later found out was a prior issue that wasn’t dealt with before I moved in. When I received my orders to leave for the military, the Assistant and Property managers were unprofessional and very unhelpful. They tried to go against my rights and extend my lease in attempt to get Review from Google
Feb 2018: PLEASE FIX OUR AIR CONDITIONING! We've spent four miserablenights with no AC since putting in a maintenance request. It's 90 degrees in our rooms. It's unbearable. I'll forgive the ridiculous wait time and update this review to 5 stars once it's fixed, we just want our AC back.
UPDATE: AC was eventually fixed and since then we've had no problems. Review from Google
Feb 2018: I have been living at 4050 Lofts for a year now and can truly say I have loved my experience here! When I was searching online for a place to live a year ago, the old reviews 4050 lofts had were puzzling, but I can honestly say, none of them are true!!! I have already resigned my lease for the next year because of the clean, well kept amenities and the spacious living spaces! I have never had any maintenance issues while living here and can truly say it is the BEST housing option offered around USF! The leasing office is friendly and accommodating, and even put on multiple resident events each month! The new management team has made tremendous improvements throughout the property and I couldn't be happier to call 4050 Lofts home!! Review from Google
