COLUMBIA — Students who signed leases at Brookside on College will get to move in this week after being displaced to temporary housing.

On May 27, a fire caused an estimated $7 million in damages to much of the apartment complex and delayed move-in from the original date of Aug. 14. The cause of the fire remains undetermined.

The move-in date for 40 percent of the complex's residents was delayed just four days. The other 60 percent of residents could either break their lease or live in temporary housing at Hillcrest Hall at Stephens College and duplexes located on Bethel Church Road, Bethel Lane and Brookside Lane.

In an email sent to residents in temporary housing on Oct. 1, Brookside thanked residents for their patience during the complex's reconstruction. The email also detailed the move-in process and included a move-in schedule.

Residents living in Stephens College temporary housing will move into Brookside on College apartments Thursday. Residents living in the duplexes will move in Friday.

Brookside declined to comment.
