STATESBORO — University Villas, one of the Statesboro campus residence hall, which closed down at the end of the Spring 2020 semester will not reopen as a residence hall in its present condition.

The residence hall was slowly closed down due to structural issues in specific rooms before being completely shut down.

The property that University Villas stands on will remain part of the Georgia Southern campus.

According to an email from Pete Blutreich, executive director of university housing, “The current buildings will not be used or renovated to be student housing however definitive plans have not been established for the future use of the site.”

The same email confirmed that the final plans for the property have not been decided but several options are being considered and discussed.
