NORMAL -- About 900 Illinois State University students will move into brand-new apartments next week.

The university is opening its new Cardinal Court apartments in time for the start of the new school year.

ISU President Al Bowman told WJBC Radio that a private company is running the apartments under a five-year deal. After that, they'll be the university's to run. The university's director of housing says the staff in the apartments, though, will be university employees.

Most of the students who'll be moving in will be sophomores.

The apartments include a commons with a cafe, game room, small theater and exercise equipment.
