1855 Place Press Kit

1855 Place, Michigan State University
Published On: August 3, 2017

Nestled just across from the Breslin Student Events Center and numerous campus resources, 1855 Place offers contemporary one-, two- and four-bedroom apartments and townhouses for MSU students. These newly developed apartments are perfect for students searching for a little more independence while staying connected to the perks of living on campus. With the opening of the residences, Michigan State undergraduate and graduate students of all backgrounds will be immersed in a community created to upsurge their academic success through close proximity to Spartan resources, green breakout spaces and a closeness to campus that cannot be surpassed.

Named in honor of the year MSU was founded, 1855 Place is a vibrant community with engagement areas, scenic plazas, resident and event parking, and a variety of food and retail options providing numerous on-campus job opportunities for students. This development centers on the university’s mission to enhance the student experience as well as MSU’s culture of high performance.

And now, with the Division of Residential and Hospitality Services’ and MSU Intercollegiate Athletics’ more than 200 team members finding a new, consolidated home at the site’s 100,000-square-foot office building, benefits of this new collaborative and efficient workspace will be felt across campus as MSU continues to provide a more cohesive, personal experience for Spartans and guests.

A ribbon cutting to commemorate the opening of 1855 Place will take place on-site Friday, Oct. 20.
