JACKSONVILLE, Ala (WIAT) – Students now have more housing options at Jacksonville State University. The university has taken over management of the former Reserve Apartments now renamed The Pointe at JSU.
The apartment complex and other off-campus housing was damged by the EF-3 tornado that struck the city and campus on March 19, 2018. The Pointe apartment complex is under new ownership. It has been completely repaired and rennovated. The complex now operates as a student residence under the univeristy’s management.
The units are fully furnished and offer four bedroom, four bath units with washer/dryer connections. The Pointe is open to upperclassmen.
Tafari Huggins is a senior at JSU and says this will help move the university forward.
“It gives a lot of people hope and opportunity,” said Huggins, “I think it will build our numbers here, getting people in because at least we do have places that are back open. And they’re working out to help everyone else.”
The cost per student is $2,700 per semester, which includes utilities, and there is no meal plan requirement.
