Thousands of IU Students Will Move into Off-Campus Housing Following Mold Concerns

(BLOOMINGTON) – Thousands of students returning to Indiana University will not be moving into their dorms as initially planned.

That’s because IU is still renovating several dorms and working to remedy a mold outbreak that happened last year.

Students will move in starting August 18, 2019.

University officials say they’ve contracted with three off-campus apartment complexes to house the 2,000 students while Foster and McNutt Quads are being renovated.

Crews began renovating the dorms after the spring semester ended earlier this year in May.

The renovations are part of a plan to invest $300 million in student housing over the next six years and construction of the new North Hall which will be completed in 2020.
