I have lived here for over three years now, and I have had positive experiences with the staff and my apartment the entire time. It’s a safe, quiet community that’s ideal for students or anyone looking for a nice place to stay near LSU
Jonathan was AMAZING! I was not looking forward to apartment shopping but he was great. Jonathan listened to all my must haves and found exactly what I wanted. He was patient while I asked a million questions. Best part, he actually had the answers to ALL my questions. He even stayed late to give me a tour. He was so fun I forgot how miserable looking for a new place can be. Jonathan went above and beyond. Thanks for helping me find my new home!
Jonathan gave us a tour and went above and beyond to show us all the amenities and the pros and cons to each available unit. He is very knowledgeable about the property and answered all of our questions. He is very friendly and made looking at apartment’s fun!
Outstanding customer support and professionalism by Jonathan Weatherford and staff. Jonathan constantly kept us informed and up to date on all requirements for the move in. Very easy to work with.
We love Southgate. Jonathan was our leasing agent and made the leasing process a breeze. Everything except electricity is included and the staff works hard to ensure that every resident is getting the best service. Jonathan and Lacey have been especially helpful and knowledgeable. All service staff are so helpful and kind.
I’ve been living here since this august- very friendly staff!!

I love living here—the amenities are so nice!! The pool is actually a “resort-style” pool unlike all of the other apartment complexes claim they have. Also they have a really nice clubhouse that is great to study in!
Definitely the nicest place I’ve lived around campus. Very spacious, high ceilings, stained concrete flooring. It’s a little pricey but there are a lot of apartment complexes charging the same amount for less- so overall this is your best bet. Be aware of the inexpensive units here. If the price they quote you seems too good to be true it probably is. When I first moved in they tried to put me in an inexpensive one bedroom unit- the balcony was falling apart and they said they couldn’t do anything about it. It was a safety hazard. There were paint splashes everywhere. Extremely small. Appliances barely functioned. I moved to a bigger unit and although it came with a price jump, it’s definitely worth it. The staff is pretty helpful and accommodating especially compared to other campus housing. Also- PARKING!!!! There’s so much of it!! It’s amazing. Probably the only apartment I’d reccomend around campus.
I’ve lived here for two years and I can’t recommend it enough! Amazing leasing staff that cares about its residents and AWESOME maintenance crew that goes above and beyond. Most everything is fixed within the day, and if it isn’t, it’s only ever because they have to order a part, and then it is fixed the second that part arrives. Beautiful spaces with stained floors and high ceilings, new appliances, and concrete walls! The concrete walls basically make the apartments soundproof so it makes the complex so peaceful to reside in. I am so sad I have to move out of here, they have been so nice to live with. It is without question the best apartment complex close to campus. Disclaimer: I’ve read over some of the other reviews here, and I have never experienced anything close to any of the issues that people complain about; honestly some of these might be about a different complex that got accidentally listed under this one because there’s no way it’s the same complex.
My family and I have lived here since around September of 2016. I love the apartment itself, the only thing I don’t like is the partying on the weekends from the nearby bars. Non of which the actual apartment can control. However last night 5-23-17 someone decided to steal our penguin welcome mat in front of our door. I know what you’re probably thinking, ok so what it was a welcome mat go buy another one. I have two children ages 2 and 3 who actually depend on this mat to tell which apartment is ours and have come to love it. With it being a Christmas mat I didn’t know if I would be able to purchase another one and that is why I was upset. My daughters were so upset by it being taken that they literally cried. I went to the office, gave the time frame it was taken. The gentleman,please forgive me I don’t remember your name, was very nice.i later found out he was the property manager. He didn’t treat me like I was overreacting even if I felt I was. He asked to see a picture of the mat and it turned out he had a similar one. Upon hearing how upset my children were about it, he reassured me. One way or another we would have our mat back. Even if that ment him giving us his. He said he would stop by sometime this morning to give it to me. Around noon I hadn’t heard anything so I looked out our door and the mat was there. Whether he gave us his, or ours was returned I want to stress the importance this made to one child. The willingness of this employee to go out of his way to get it fixed. I just want to say thank you. Thank you so much. To whomever who took it, please don’t take things that aren’t yours. You don’t know what kind of importance they hold to someone. Especially if you were just drunk and thought it was funny. It crushed their world.
Moving out next week after spending 4 amazing years here. This place is honestly so amazing if you want to be close to campus and have a really nice apartment you should live here. Lacey is also one the most amazing people to work with when you need anything at all. I read a few of these other reviews and honestly have never experienced anything like that at Southgate. TBH it’s most likely people who didn’t pay rent and just want to complain about everything. As far a security goes, the garage has 2 gates to pass through before getting in and each door has a scanner to let you in. I’ve seen it down twice in the 4 years I lived here and it because people pulled the fire alarm both times.
The place is great. While it is on the pricier side, the amenities that are included in the rent make it worth it. I lived in a one bedroom apartment and I never felt too cramped or anything of that nature. My neighbors ranged from college students to young professionals to even families. Noise was never really an issue, except for a couple of nights, but that is almost always the case with apartments in a college town. The staff were great about following up with any issues I may have had. Overall, it was a great experience.
