Allerton shuts down

Allerton shuts down

Kent State student Liliana Rincon will not be cooking anymore meals for her 10-year-old son Alvaro here at Allerton Apartment. The family will have to find a new place to call home when the apartments close in July.


Sixty-five Kent State students will be losing their homes by July. The Allerton Apartment complex has been phased out for the past five years and this summer will be its last. The university decided it is best to tear down the buildings that is over 50-year-old because they have reached their life cycle. There are also maintenance and structural issues with the buildings such as plumbing and the bricks and stairs are worn out. The repairs for the buildings are too extensive that bring the buildings up to code and speed will be too costly. The university is still deciding on what to do with the space, it could be used for future family housing, recreational space or athletic fields.

The Rincons have called the Allerton Apartment home for six months. this where Alvaro does his homework and plays viedo games. Lillian is studying English as  second language at Kent State and this where she spends most of her time doing her homework. Now they will be spending their time looking for a new place to call home.

The Rincon family will not just have a hard time looking for a place to stay to call home but a place to stay for just two months before they leave for Colombia for summer vacation.
