I regret living at Hopkins House. My main issue had to do with the management and how it handled (what it thought were) lease violations. During my first few months living at Hopkins House, I received a letter stating that someone on my floor was smoking pot and that if this did not stop immediately, everyone on the floor could get evicted. Evicting people with no evidence of a lease violation on their part would have been illegal, and I didn't appreciate the empty threat seeing as I wasn't the one on my floor smoking. A little under a year later, someone in my general area of the building made a noise complaint. Management sent me an accusatory email regarding the excessive noise and again threatened to terminate my lease. When I later spoke to management, I was told that they actually did not know who was causing the “tapping noise” and that it could have been an old pipe. They also told me that they had sent these letters to everyone in my general area of the building so that residents would call into the office and they could better determine who was responsible. Despite the fact that management agreed it was not me causing the problem, this message was not passed along to the corporate office. When I was later applying for an apartment in a different city, the noise violation came up in my resident check and almost prevented me from securing the new apartment, which was incredibly frustrating. While living at Hopkins House, I was also at one point accused of having an extra person living in my apartment because someone from management decided to do an apartment inspection the day after a long weekend, and I had a sofa bed set still set up from a friend having stayed with me. Again, they threatened eviction.
During my two years living at Hopkins House, I got really tired of dealing with these random false defamatory allegations and management’s attempts to threaten me when I had done nothing wrong. I would STRONGLY advise future potential residents to strongly consider living elsewhere.
