Is it a bad idea to use the printer in poorly ventilated apartment room?

Hello, I have used Up Plus 2 and Makerbot 2 at school before. I know that there are smell and it might not be good for health if I use 3D printer in a poorly ventilated room as I could breath in toxic.

I moved to a condo but I noticed that the only windows that can be opened are those small ones on the top. I heard that this is to prevent people from jumping out of the building!

Now I am considering to buy an UP Box. From the product information page, it seems that it has some kind of filter built-in. Is it still better to use the machine in a well ventilated room? I suppose that even there is a filter, when I open the door to get the 3D printed models, I would breath in some fume (could be toxic?).
