Resident Reviews

It is good for college livingsubmitted by Joshua P. - |Recommended: NoIt is a bit expensive considering the quality. I pay 1070.00 per month 10,700 for 10 month lease and I could get about the same quality for under 1000.00 per month elsewhere. The best things about Dobie are the location, the people, and the atmosphere. The food during dinnertime could be SIGNIFICANTLY better than it is now. Additionally, the elevators have problems quite often. I would rate Dobie with a 2.5 to 3 star rating overall in comparison to other apartments nearby.
response from property -Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Our rates are competitive and in line with other dormitories in Austin. Our first 7 renovated floors will be completed by January 1st. We are upgrading both the electrical and plumbing on each floor and in every unit. Your new refrigerator will include a microwave combo that will work in tandem. The carpet has been removed and the concrete floor beneath exposed and refinished. There are new countertops and warm wood cabinetry. All of the lighting in the breezeways and in the units has been replaced with LED light fixtures. Additionally, the current key system in December will be replaced with a Saflok limited access entry system. We also have plans to complete the tower, renovate and expand our amenities, and reestablish the mall as a public market. The décor will embrace the vintage Austin theme that surrounds us. You will also see some additions to the cafeteria when you return from the upcoming holiday. We plan to add an outdoor movie theater and increase the size of the technology center, gym, and game room. The tech center will include all-in-one Mac's linked to a new multifunction printer. Both the tech center and the tower internet will be upgraded to Google fiber. We are very excited for all the upcoming changes and we hope you are too.
Dobie is a good project submitted by Mohamad H. - |Recommended: Yesdobie is a perfect place to live if you're a student it's super close to campus and the RAs and the students who live here are just awesome. needs some improvements here and there for example the maintenance needs to improve... A LOT and the roomsare dark bcz of no proper lighting. what's awesome about it is that you don't really worry about food bcz you always have a cafeteria downstairs. food is not the best but it does the job. they're renovating it now so everyone is so excited to see how it'll be next year i'm totally staying here next year but i just hope the prices don't go up too high.
response from property -Thank you for your review. Since purchasing the property in July and as you attest in your review, we are making positive changes daily to not only Dobie Twenty21 but to our team. Our newest addition, our Maintenance Supervisor, Craig, comes to us with a wealth of experience. We are upgrading the lighting as one of the many changes being made to the 7 floors currently under renovation. The breezeway is lighter and brighter because we have installed LED lighting. Lighting upgrades continue into the units where we have replaced the light fixtures also with new LED fixtures. We are hosting tours of our renovated floors so you can see first-hand the exciting changes we are making and will continue to make. Our goal is to make Dobie the #1 dorm choice by UT students. Please reach out to me or one of my team members for a personal tour of a renovated floor. Our Cafeteria will be fully operational in January when you return from your holiday. Food labels with bar codes can be scanned to determine ingredients, nutritional value, calories, etc. Dishes omitting the eight food allergens will also be available with each meal. We are also planning a midnight breakfast during finals. Good things are forthcoming. I am so glad that you are excited. We are, too!
It sucks heresubmitted by Emilia G. - |Recommended: Nothere's never food in the cafeteria, the grill is supposed to be open but it isn't, they always serve the same food, management sucks, I only live here because it's cheaper than living on campus, the AC sucks, it's always freezing in the room and there's no way to control the temperature. would not recommend to anyone. the only cool thing about dobie is the RAs, they're nice and cool and understand the struggle of living at dobie.
response from property -Thank you for sharing your concerns with us. We currently have 7 floors under construction that will encompass vintage Austin. Our renovations include new LED lighting, new light fixtures, paint, flooring, updated cabinetry and countertops, as well as new furniture. The new refrigerator will be larger and include a microwave combination. We are also upgrading the electrical and plumbing. The elevator façade on each floor is encased in barn wood and that same décor will be mirrored in the study rooms on each floor. Additionally, we are converting our current key system to the Saflok limited access entry system over the upcoming holiday. I invite you, Emilia, to tour one of our renovated floors. Our Cafeteria will be fully operational in January when you return from your holiday. In the interim, please visit Chartwell's website, dineoncampus.com. Select a University where Chartwell operates in order to get a glimpse of what is in store for our Dobie residents. Great things are on the horizon! Using myfitnesspal on your phone (or Chartwell's website noted above), you can scan the food label and gather the nutritional value, calories, etc. of a particular dish or food item. In addition, at each meal, there will be 5 food dishes that will omit the 8 food allergens (i.e., soy, milk, gluten, etc.) that will be available to our residents who suffer from food allergies or have special dietary needs. Emilia, please reach out to our Food Service Director, Shaun, if he can make something for you. Shaun caters to many residents and can certainly assist you. Food items will repeat but only after a 30-day cycle. The temperature in your room can be adjusted. Since you have not submitted a work order to address the cool temperature in your room, I have submitted one for you. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to enhance your experience with us.
