Confusion Continues Over Housing at the Marshall
By Zach Richter
SYRACUSE, NY – It was this past July when Syracuse University purchased The Marshall for almost 70 million dollars. However, four months later there is still no word on what will happen with this building for next year. Most students living in off-campus housing have had their leases signed for a couple of months now. However, the students who want to live in The Marshall have heard little to nothing.
“They haven’t told us any information and it’s really stressful because everyone has signed their leases like a long time ago already,” said prospective Marshall resident Jenna Lopes.
Even students currently living in the Marshall had always had their leases signed at this point in the last year.
“They gave us a email saying that they were looking into what the room rates were going to be. However, they do not know what the room rates are going to be yet,” said current Marshall resident Jake Fienberg.
A University official previously said it will remain housing for upperclassmen, but students have no idea how much it will cost and when they will be able to start signing leases. We reached out to The Marshall, and they said that they are unaware of when the University will start this process. So, we then reached out to the University who declined to comment.
