COLLEGE BUYS WORTH APARTMENTS FOR STUDENT HOUSING

Trinity completed another successful initiative to meet the need for additional student housing when administrators finalized the purchase of the Village, an apartment building in Worth, Illinois, immediately north of Palos Heights. Interim President Tony Diekema and Tom Vloedman, vice president for business affairs, signed the closing contract June 4, sealing the deal on the College's second acquisition of off-campus property in three years. 

"We are very pleased to acquire this property," said Bryan Carrier, residence life and housing coordinator. "It gives us the flexibility to provide adequate and more comfortable living space for our students."

The units will be refurbished this summer and ready for occupancy in August. Like the Burbs, the Crestwood, Illinois, apartment complex that the College bought in 2001, the Village will be home to juniors and seniors.

"It's exciting to be able to move forward," Carrier said. "We want to start on those renovations right away so our residents will have a smooth transition when they return to start the new academic year."
