ADRIAN, Mich. – Adrian College announced an agreement in principal to acquire three properties adjacent to campus. The purchase agreement includes Argyle Apartments (1401 Argyle Drive), College Court Apartments (128 South Charles Street), and the former site of Orchard Apartments (103 North Charles Street). These acquisitions will increase student-housing options by an additional 36 units (72 beds) and will expand premier parking availability by 125 additional spaces. Closing on the property is expected to commence on April 2, 2012.
“As the College continues its rapid growth we need additional housing on campus,” said President Jeffrey R. Docking. “These apartments are exactly what many students want. They are spacious and include kitchen facilities and laundry services. Many have balconies and each offers the feel of apartment/independent living while being close and convenient to campus.”
The additional housing options are expected to be available for student residency in August 2012. These air-conditioned units are fully equipped with private living space, kitchens and private bathrooms. Some furnishings will be provided, including bedroom sets and appliances. Interested students will need to complete a separate application through the housing office on campus.
“There is a positive economic impact when more students can reside on our campus and utilize the surrounding businesses and amenities for auxiliary goods and services,” said Frank Hribar, Vice President for Enrollment. The College continues to seek out versatile options to accommodate students’ needs during their time on our campus.
