Collegiate Housing Services Complaint - Collegiate Housing Services Misrepresents Housing Services
ADDISON, ILLINOIS -- By Concerned Mom
"Anyone considering attending a college or school that is using Collegiate Housing Services for their student housing can expect a very stressful experience. The school will not let you know of hidden charges and involuntary moving one or more times to fulfill their consolidation/vacancies to increase their bottom line. My son has just started school at DeVry University in Addison, IL and moved in two and half months and they are moving all the four roommates to other apts. to fill the vacancies. Their web site www.housingservices.com makes it look as though it is pleasant and stress free experience. Unfortunately, DeVry and CHS represent an entirely different picture as you can see at their web site. Stay away from schools using this company or find your own housing. It is abusive the way they have set up the supposed "leases" and take advantage of their students. My son is out of state and this is a parents worst nightmare to have their child treated this way. This is not a mishap this is written in their leases openly and is policy of CHS and the schools they represent.
They make you think you can choose where you want to live. In our case, they used noise violations that happened during day. They grossly misrepresent what they offer. College tuition is expensive! Don't let your child go through this!"
