After more than a year of construction, The Willows at Hemming Village is opening its doors.
Strictly women’s housing, the complex houses 2,160 students.
Contracts went on sale early this year and sold out for the fall semester in five weeks. The Willows is currently booked for fall, winter and spring semesters.
The Willows features art and history from the early beginnings of Ricks College and the city of Rexburg.
Each floor incorporates photographs from early residents and students, many of whom are relatives of the Hemming family.
“We have built something here the girls will love,” said Richie Webb, president of Hemming Village. “Everything we’ve tried to do has been intended to be at a high level.”
Webb said the projects Hemming Village is involved in are great ways to bring the community and BYU-Idaho together.
The Willows is one of more than 110 apartment complexes that make the BYU-I approved housing list.
Apartment complexes have to go through a lengthy approval process to be considered BYU-I approved housing.
Some parameters a housing complex must abide by to become approved housing include a specific amount of bedroom floor space and required furniture and location of bathrooms within the apartment.
The Approved Housing Guidebook states that all single students under the age of 30 must live in approved housing unless they live at home with their parents.
“Approved housing is an important part of the Housing and Student Living office’s mission to ‘create and foster a culture in which students learn and live the principles of Zion in their apartments and homes,’” according to the BYU-I website.
