University Pointe apartments to open

Students have started to move into the newest, biggest and
 most modern housing option on campus.

The 978 beds in the 16-story University Pointe represent a nearly 
50 percent increase in the student housing offerings at PSU. That brings to about 10 percent the number of PSU’s students who are able to live on campus.

The university contracted with a private company, American Campus Communities, to build and operate University Pointe. Student housing officials say there is room for more students, especially 
in four-bedroom, two-bath units, which lease for $599 per person a month.

The apartments have kitchens, living rooms, 46-inch
 Smart TVs and come with all utilities including Internet and cable
 TV. The four different floor plans come in furnished and unfurnished

The building has bike storage and is located at TriMet
 bus stops and the MAX light rail line. It has a fitness center,
computer rooms, WiFi, study rooms, a lounge and laundry facilities that include card-operated smart washers that text you when your laundry is done.

The street level will have three retailers Joe’s Burgers,
 TartBerry frozen yogurt and Noah’s Bagels.
