JSU Takes Over Management of Former Reserve Apartments


Students now have more housing options at Jacksonville State, as the university has taken over management of the former Reserve Apartments, now repaired, renovated and renamed The Pointe at JSU.   

The off-campus housing community was significantly damaged by the EF-3 tornado that struck the city and campus on March 19, 2018. The property is now under new ownership, has been completely renovated and is ready for occupancy. JSU has entered into a management agreement with the owners and Housing Operations and Residence Life will operate the apartment complex as a student residence.  

The Pointe is open to upperclassmen and offers four bedroom, four bath housing units with fully furnished common areas, kitchens and washer/dryers. Amenities and features include:

  • Fully furnished common area with a sofa, chair, end table, entertainment stand, bar stools
  • Fully furnished bedrooms with full-sized mattress/frame, dresser, desk chair
  • New stainless steel kitchen appliances: refrigerator, oven, microwave, dishwasher
  • Washer and dryer in every unit
  • Ceiling fans in common area and each bedroom
  • Patio/balcony
  • Pool and club house access
  • Exercise gym
  • Basketball/tennis court
  • Volleyball court
  • Gamecock Express stop
  • Gated entry with access card

The cost per student is $2,700 per semester, which includes utilities, and there is no meal plan requirement. 

“The Pointe offers students upscale accommodations within walking distance of campus,” said Brooke Lyon, Director of Housing Operations. “Almost a year following the March 19 tornado, JSU has rebounded from a student housing shortage and our students have even more options like The Pointe to call home.”
