The Greyhound Village Apartments currently under construction should be ready in August in time for the fall semester, according to Greyhound Village Marketing Manager Zach Brown.
“Right now, we’re actually a little bit ahead of schedule,” Brown said. “We should be ready to give hard hat tours in the next couple of weeks.”
The apartments will be available for mostly upperclassmen. The apartments will feature a fitness center, sand volleyball courts, lounging area, study room, outdoor lounging area with a fire pit, their own social events, on-site management and annual agreements with no extra charge for vacation or summer access, unlike other current residence halls on campus, according to www.greyhoundvillage.com.
“The most exciting aspect of the Greyhound Village Apartments is that they combine the best of both worlds,” Brown said. “People can enjoy all the perks of on-campus life with relaxed apartment guidelines.”
The Greyhound Village allows residents to live with whomever they wish, regardless of gender. The Greyhound Village also will be the only on-campus housing that allows for the lawful and responsible consumption of alcohol by anyone over 21 years of age, according to Brown.
Sophomore accounting major Colten Black will live with three other friends in the Greyhound Village Apartments next year.
“I’m just excited about having a place to myself and my own room and bathroom while living with good friends,” Black said. “It will feel like a home away from home.”
There are still vacancies for those interested in living in the Greyhound Village Apartments next school year. The most available units are the two-bedroom, two-bath suites. About 75 percent of the three-bedroom suites are taken, and 85 percent of the singles have been spoken for. Only 32 percent of the beds have been filled in the four-bedroom suites. All bedrooms have their own bathroom regardless of which type of unit they are in.
Each apartment will come with furniture and appliances, including a washer and dryer, hardwood-style flooring, granite countertops, a full-sized kitchen, balconies and patios (for select units) and access to the University of Indianapolis cable and Internet services included, according to www.greyhoundvillage.com. To promote the Greyhound Village Apartments, students who take a tour before Feb. 28 have a chance to win a $500 giftcard.
There is a partial model of the Greyhound Village’s interior featured on the main floor of the University of Indianapolis Schwitzer Student Center, located directly behind the Hub Information Center, for those interested in learning more.
