The Domain at Tempe Apartments Offer Work-Play Balance

Living away from home can be either a stressful or an extremely gratifying experience when you’re a fresh-faced college student. It’s widely known that Arizona State University is one of the most popular universities in the country, enrolling an upwards of 73,000 alone this fall, with Tempe being its most populous campus.

To make the transition easy and effortless, living arrangements truly matter. With classes to excel in and new friends to make, the balance between academic and social lives presents a constant challenge that every student aims to master.

  1. DO NOT live at the Domain!

    After living there for 2 years, I cleaned my room and bathroom completely upon moving out. My roommates and I also spent 2 hours cleaning the common area. I never received a bill from the domain for any cleaning fees. 4 months after moving out I received a letter from collections saying that I never paid my cleaning bill. I have pictures to prove that my room and bathroom were left spotless, and I am forced to pay this bill, or my credit and my parents credit (my guarantors) will take a hit. The fees are for $217.39 for a cleaning fee. They are losing all of their business and are forced to nickle and dime people as they move out.

    This was the final straw for me, and what has caused me to write this review. Other problems with this place are endless. During the time that I lived there, I witnessed prostitution happening down the hall. An older man (mid 40’s) constantly had young females coming and going from his apartment. I did not think much about it until I saw a bunch of his business cards laying on the floor of the halls, that read “escort service”.

    There was a group of drug dealers that lived on the first floor who would roam the grounds looking for people to beat up. there were numerous fights that resulted in puddles of blood on the walls and on the ground from where they jumped drunk college students. When they would party and get noise complaints or complaints of marijuana smoke coming from their door, the security guards would knock on their door and politely ask them to stop. I witnessed them invite a security guard in to their party to play beer pong. I know this sounds unbelievable, but the security guard actually played one round with these guys.

    My neighbor fell off of her balcony and died because she was partying too hard. Excessively loud music all the time, and if you complained to management, they would just say deal with it because this is college living. Well maybe if the management would have dealt with it, then she would not have died.

    There are a million more problems with this place, but these were my worst experiences. Read all of the filtered reviews on here about the domain. That many negative reviews cannot be wrong.


  2. This place is absolutely terrible! The amenities are nice, but it’s definitely not worth the $650+ they make you pay per month. The walls are PAPER thin and I promise I am not exaggerating. I can hear my neighbors turning on their sink to wash their hands and everything. My apartment is located right next to Apache Boulevard and I can hear all the light rail noise, the police station noise, people walking on the street all the way from the 5th floor, etc. What’s even worse is PJ’s Grill now opened up (great food) but there are week days when they host events with a DJ and the music gets so loud that it travels up to my apartment and shakes my entire room. Not to mention how filthy everything is 24/7. You can walk out of the hallway to find it littered with beer cans, puke, urine, everything. The mess is everywhere; the hallway floor, walls, staircases, elevator, parking garage, etc. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY. I’m not sure who constructed this building, but they should get fired. My room is constantly freezing even at 75 degrees, and my roommate’s room is like a sauna. This place is dreadful and I regret signing that lease.
