University Village Welcoming First Residents
University Village, a new family housing complex of 140 two-bedroom townhomes at UMass Amherst, is welcoming its first residents this month.
A limited number of units will be available for occupancy this fall, with the rest of the complex coming on line during the coming year. This new university-managed family housing is located on the site of the former North Village Apartments off North Pleasant Street in Amherst. Graduate students who were former North Village residents and are still studying at the university have first preference to relocate to the new development.
The complex will include a shared community center, play structures, playing field and pedestrian walkways. Details can be found on the university’s family housing website.
