Students in Uproar Over Sterling Frisco Apartments

Roommates Trisha Berger and Haley Barling say they've been told they can't move into their new apartment four times.
Roommates Trisha Berger and Haley Barling say they've been told they can't move into their new apartment four times.

"A lot of anger, a lot of it, and frustration and just none of it makes sense," Berger said.

About 2/3 of Building 2 at Sterling Frisco Apartments were moved in Monday. 

Friday, the last 100 residents received their keys, just in time for game day.

"I was really excited for tomorrow, like being in the apartment, walking to the stadium cause it's still on campus, and now it's like I don't know what I'm supposed to do. I might be spending tomorrow morning moving in instead of, you know tailgating and getting ready for the game and enjoying it," Barling said.

Sophomore Jeremy Thelen moved in Friday, but doesn't think the rooms are ready for residents.

"From looking at what it looks like in the rooms and the hallways and stuff it seems like it was built in 3 weeks, not 3 months," he said.

Game day was a looming deadline for the apartment complex because the weekend brings in big crowds and the hotel rooms the student residents were occupying were already reserved for this weekend.

According to a general manager at sleep inn, their student guests checked out Friday mainly because the hotel couldn't accommodate them.

So students are finding ways to make it work by kickoff.

"I'm having to juggle between classes and moving in and we have a football game tomorrow and so it's a busy time to be moving in," Thelen said.

"I took off work this morning and then I didn't tonight because I thought I'd be moved in but, apparently not," Barling said.

Though these roommates will finally be in their apartment, to say it's a win, win for everyone might be a stretch.

"The first game I have to be moving in instead. It's just not supposed to be this way," Barling said.

We reached out to the Sterling Frisco Leasing Office, the apartment management president and contractor, however no calls were returned.
