Kee'ara Smith, Marketing Coordinator

As the Housing Renewal date draws closer for the 2021-2022 academic school year Georgia Southern’s Housing department notified students via email on Feb. 4, 2021 that Terrace 2 will no longer be available.

Due to Covid-19 safety measures, returning students will renew their housing agreements online. The housing department normally hosts a renewal party where students get to tour their prospective living spaces and ask questions before signing a housing contract. 

“I have lived in Terrace 2 with the same roommates up until this year since I was a sophomore and though this is my last year at Armstrong I am still sad to see the building go,” said Dakayla Watkins.

At press time, the housing department has not put out a statement in regards to why the building will be closing.

Students that are currently residing in Terrace were able to choose new housing this past Thursday, Feb. 4th at 9:30 a.m. online. Those students still have University Crossings and Compass Point to choose from. 

Since many students are not familiar with those specific resident halls, the Housing staff did make themselves available at the Compass Point Club House Feb 4 and 11 to answer any questions students may have had. 

Many students wanted to know if prices will change since there is a limited amount of housing in Compass Point. Students would have no other choice but to stay in University Crossings if Compass points were to be filled, which will ultimately cost more.

The Housing department stated Greeks and the new Resident in the Sophomore Experience (RISE) students will be living in Compass Point during the 2021-2022 school year. Students who are already living in Compass Point plan to renew their same rooms as well, Leaving students who reside in Terrace not much to choose from for on campus housing.
