ALBANY, Ga. – Albany Technical College has announced expanded opportunities for students by offering a new option for off-campus housing. A local businessman and developer, Matt Davis, with Davis Companies, is now offering local college students an opportunity to lease space in a new development while they attend college here in Albany.

Anthony Parker, President of Albany Technical College, said, “Making housing available to Albany Tech students who need a place to stay while they attend college opens up prospects for students who might otherwise find it a challenge to attend college from a long distance. We are excited about the possibility this allows these students.”

The new apartments are located at 405 East Whitney Avenue. This is the corner of Radium Springs Road and East Whitney Avenue, with shared property lines on two sides with the East Campus of Albany State University, will be made available to Albany Technical College students on a first-come, first-serve basis. Bus transportation will be available for Albany Tech students through Albany Transit System’s bus routes. High-Speed WIFI internet will be provided with the lease, and meal plan options will also be available through Albany State University.

The layout for each suite will allow four people to share an apartment with a common living room and kitchen space. Two students will share a bathroom on each side of the living space. Handicap options will be available on the first floor of each building.

Developer Matt Davis commented, “Added security will include two police officers living on the premises, both from the Albany Police Department. Extra security will ensure a quiet and orderly environment for those that live there, making a safe space for the students and peace of mind for parents.”

Construction should be completed on the new apartments around mid-July. Applications are being taken for the fall semester of 2020.
