UIS students head back to new apartments

Many students at the University of Illinois Springfield are moving back on campus to the smell of a brand new apartment. UIS says the renovations are part of an $8.5 million project to upgrade aging housing units.

The UIS renovations have been going on for two years, but with the project winding down and students heading back to campus keys to newly renovated apartments were handed out left and right.

"They actually are moving into brand new renovated apartments, fully gutted with new walls, new interiors, new carpet, new plumbing," said John Ringle, UIS director of Residence Life.
