Olivet College to build new student housing
Sep 10, 2007

Olivet College is beginning construction on the new Gillette Student Village, an apartment-style housing facility for students. The $1.7 million project is being financed, in part, by J. Robert Gillette, a 1963 alumnus of Olivet.

The college plans to break ground on the facility Saturday, Sept. 15 at 11:30 a.m. The ceremony will be held a block south of campus, at the site of the former Quick-Powers House. Gillette, college officials and Olivet students will participate in the ceremony.

When completed, the Gillette Student Village will offer Olivet students a modern alternative for on-campus housing. The two-story building will feature nine units, each consisting of four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, kitchen and dining room. The apartments will be fully furnished and include appliances.

The new facility is expected to open next fall.

Construction on the facility has started and a photo gallery of the construction can be accessed by clicking here.
