Since moving into The Academy, everyone has been so kind! Joel made the process a breeze and has helped out in anyway he can! I love the building and its location being so close to Gonzagas campus.

Laruen and Ren are absolutely amazing. I have been living at The Academy since August 2019. My spouse and I lived in an efficiency at first and then we moved to a two-bedroom. Both the efficiency and the two-bedroom are clean and well-kept and are beautiful apartments. We enjoy living so close to Gonzaga and WSU. I appreciate the easy access to the Centennial Trail, where I walk my dog every day. For the most part, the apartment complex is fairly quiet. Because The Academy is dog friendly, there can be some issues with barking dogs. However, I really appreciate that there are washers and dryers on every floor (and theyre free - no need for quarters, which is deeply appreciated). The appliances are stainless steel and work well and look nice. The complex is kept clean and everything in working order. If there is a maintenance need, needs are met in a very timely and respectful manner. For those of you who are salty about the company evicting elderly folks, I do understand your frustration, but at a certain point, I dont think it is fair to expect The Academy to be a charitable cause for low-income seniors. Business is business and although its hard not to take it personally, business make money and a business should not be expected to be a charity. In that way, its not fair to leave negative reviews and to harass staff or residents about something that nobody here at The Academy ever had anything to do with. So, no, there are no ghosts roaming the halls. This is a friendly community made up of mostly Gonzaga and WSU students who work hard, study hard, and are making a difference. Nobody here at The Academy - staff or residents - has anything to do with that business decision that occurred in the past. The Academy is a great place to live and the staff is *amazing* in all ways.

I really appreciated Brielle showing us all the different apartment styles from the 4th floor to the 1st. And really worked to help me decide what I wanted in an apartment. I truly can’t wait to move in. Both Loren and Brielle’s customer service was spot on and really set The Academy apart from the other apartments I visited that day.

Lauren was excellent at helping us find the perfect apartment in our budget! It’s still in construction but you can tell it’s gonna be an amazing place for an amazing price. Great location! Right next to the city pool and a HUGE park! As well as shopping and restaurants. The building itself has a lot of rich history...was even in the movie Benny and Joon! So Johnny Depp was there before (*swoon*) and it’s going to look amazing when it’s all completed. Brand new everything inside and the building is so beautiful. We cannot wait to move in in August!
