WSU housing coordinates with The Grove apartment owner

PULLMAN, Wash. – Housing officials at Washington State University, in concert with Campus Crest Communities, owner of The Grove apartments in Pullman, have secured housing for students impacted by an off-campus fire that destroyed some of the apartments on July 15.

“Everyone with leases at The Grove has been contacted,” said Terry Boston, assistant vice president for administrative services at WSU. “The owners of The Grove have worked diligently to ensure that all affected students understand their options.”

Boston said WSU is offering students housing on campus. Some students have elected to move to one of Campus Crest’s sister properties in Moscow, Idaho. Others have opted out of their leases with Campus Crest in order to rent other apartments.

According to a Pullman Fire Department press release, the early Sunday morning fire started in units still under construction and quickly spread to surrounding units. The construction contractors told firefighters that all of the units had been rented for the fall semester at WSU that begins Aug. 19.

The fire is being called “suspicious” and is under investigation by Pullman fire, Pullman police and WSU police departments.
