Student Housing Facilities Reopen After March 19th Tornado
Today was another celebration day for Jacksonville State University students. More affordable off campus student housing is now available. Gamecock Village was one of many properties destroyed by the March 19th tornado, leaving hundreds of students with no place to live.
The Price Company is a management company that specializes in student housing. The Price Company was in charge of all renovations efforts to ensure the complex made a full recovery for its students. Gavin Short, Regional Manager for the Price Company, is honored to have been a part of the rebuilding process in Jacksonville.
Students are also excited about the fact that JSU officially announced that The Pointe at JSU will be operated by the university’s Housing Operations and Residence Life. Before the EF-3 tornado destroyed the apartments formerly known as The Reserve, housing operations were open for people who weren’t students.
Now, the apartment complex will run as a student residence. JSU has entered into an agreement with the owners to open up the complex to upperclassmen. The Pointe offers four furnished bedrooms and bathrooms, a full kitchen area, washers and dryers along with a fully furnished common area.
