Newly acquired apartment building designated for faculty and staff

July 1, 2003

Accepting a new position, even one you're really excited about, can be stressful. Finding convenient and affordable housing can push stress levels even higher.

But a new acquisition by Austin Peay will eliminate one of those sources of stress. On June 1, the University took ownership of T & J Apartments on Marion Street, a two-story, 10-apartment complex.

To be renamed Marion Street Apartments, the one- and two-bedroom apartments are strictly for faculty and staff.

Accepting a new position, even one you're really excited about, can be stressful. Finding convenient and affordable housing can push stress levels even higher.

But a new acquisition by Austin Peay will eliminate one of those sources of stress. On June 1, the University took ownership of T & J Apartments on Marion Street, a two-story, 10-apartment complex.

To be renamed Marion Street Apartments, the one- and two-bedroom apartments are strictly for faculty and staff.

"We get a lot of calls from new faculty and staff asking if we have a place they can stay," says Joe Mills. "Now we do."

One of the apartments will be reserved for guests of the University, people on campus for interviews, for example.

The remaining nine will be available for longer-term stays. Scheduled for refurbishment, with new tile, carpet and paint, the apartments should be ready for occupancy by the end of August. The monthly rental will be $450.
