I lived here my senior year and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was very quiet, close to the Weyburn BruinBus stop, and all the tenants were very respectful. Jolina was always kind and helpful, an excellent building manager. We had a few small issues in our bathroom and she helped us solve the problems swiftly. I shared a small loft room but the common spaces were very large in my apartment and I loved the wooden floors!
Jolina's the best landlord you could ask for. Professional, kind, and timely in her responses. Our neighbors and the tenants overall were pretty quiet, but we'd here the fire truck sirens every time they left the station a couple blocks away. Nothing we couldn't deal with though. Sort of a far walk from campus but I usually took the bus anyways. Hardwood floors with a balcony was pretty sweet.
Great apartment for a good price! Lived here during the 2015/2016 school year.
I lived in a studio with one other person and there was definitely enough space for the both of us. I loved the cleanliness of the place and how quiet it was compared to other apartments near campus. The manager, Jolina, was also very helpful, friendly, and quick to fix any problem we might of had. I definitely recommend this place, but contact Jolina as early as you can because the apartment fills up rather quickly.
TLDR Version: Great apartment, great price, GREAT MANAGER. Plus, wood floorings! YAY!
I lived here during my third and fourth year at UCLA, and I honestly cannot think of any other place I'd rather call home. Although it may have seem a little far from campus, it was actually fairly central-- equidistant from the hill, Westwood, Ackerman, and south of Wilshire, depending on which direction you took (~15-20min walking). Plus, the Weyburn Stop is only a 5 minute walk away, and Kelton/Strathmore is a stop for CSO Vans. However, what truly made my my time at 690 Veteran worthwhile is the managers and the welcoming environment they fostered. Mimie (now retired, I suppose) and Jolina (her daughter) are amazing and were super responsive/communicative during my time here! They truly care about their tenants, which was evident when our refrigerator broke and Jolina had it replaced the next day! Water, basic cable, and parking are also all included! And the best part? We essentially got ~90% of our deposit back, a rare sighting in Westwood! My only caveat to college students: parties are not allowed, but you are allowed to have guests over for small gatherings. We had a few dinner nights with friends during our time here; just be considerate of the neighbors (some of them have been living here for 10+ years)! So if you're looking for a cozy place to call home while you're in Westwood, I would highly recommending checking it out. Happy apartment hunting!
I lived here for two years in a one bedroom with a roomate. Its spacious and pretty quiet, with light and airy feel due to the large windows. The kitchen came with good appliances and whenever there was any issue the landlord was always available and happy to help. Comes with parking as well. Its a bit of a walk to campus, but theres a bruinbus stop about two blocks down, right by westwood village as well. All in all a good place to be.
I lived in this apartment last year. I have found this apartment on a coincidence, I love the spacious living room and kitchen. Also its a 2beds and 2baths for the 5 of us, it was more than plenty of space. One of the great thing about this place is that it is a quiet/ non-party environment for those of us who prefers a studious study space. The apartment came with parkings space for a great deal. Most importantly, the building manager is Jolina who is extremely kind, friendly and extremely fast to get us maintenance help to fix anything in our apartment. I really appreciated that everything appliances such as microwave, stove, dishwasher and fridge in the apartment are brand new. Overall, I definitely recommend this place.
I lived in a studio here for two years, with one parking spot. The rent control is a real blessing, and for the price, this place seems to be the best value (location and interior-wise) out of all my friends' places. Two of my friends were priced out of their apartment the following year. The apartment was a bright and airy space, with hardwood floors and large windows, in contrast to a lot of the dark and cramped apartments in Westwood. The manager, most importantly, is very sweet. Jolina responds promptly, and takes care of repairs as quickly as she can. She's very willing to help. I've heard of some terrible stories about the management of other buildings in Westwood, so this is a pretty safe bet.
This apartment is great! I have been living here for two years in a two bedroom, and I have been more than content. The apartments are really spacious compared to others in the area, especially for the price. In addition, the complex is very quiet and the area in general is pretty far from the noisy parts of Westwood. The manager is really nice, super friendly, always quick to respond and willing to help. Nice place to live if you're looking for something quiet and roomy. Although it is somewhat of a walk to campus, it is near a BruinBus stop, which is convenient. Overall, highly recommend.
So, living in this apartment complex was awesome! My particular unit was a studio + loft, so I brought in a roommate to halve the rent and there was still plenty of space for us both. There aren't any wild parties here, and I don't think tenants talk to each other too much, but as a result it's a fantastic place to live if you're looking to study hard and finish strong on your last years at UCLA. The apartment manager is also great; she's responsive, friendly, and always makes the effort to remember your name and ask how you're doing. Some advice though: this place fills up really quickly, so make sure you get in touch with the manager early on (like in February) if you want to rent for the coming school year. Cheers!
I really enjoyed living in 690 Veteran! The building is in good shape. I lived in a studio apartment. The wood floors were beautiful and the apartment had a nice shape. It is a very spacious studio. The kitchen was on the small side, but very useable for a single person cooking at one time. The aspect of living here that I liked the most was the building manager, Mimie. She is incredibly sweet and caring! That really made the experience of living in 690 Veteran amazing! This area of Westwood is quiet, but still an easy walk to campus and to the downtown area.
