|Shorty's features a sprinkler system with full alarm monitoring for resident safety. Access is controlled with resident key card or intercom system. Monitored security cameras are present for added resident safety. Large passive solar windows provide light and warmth in winter (It's a "green" house), and that heat energy is retained by added insulation. Each unit has separately controlled heat and A/C. Each private bathroom has soft water conditioning. Beyond-code insulation in all of the walls results in efficient, quiet and private space for residents to study and relax. A free, a guaranteed parking space is available for resident use. Located across the street from the newly remodeled train station, you can travel between the Twin Cities, Chicago area, in between and beyond, via Amtrak.
With bike lanes throughout the city, excellent city bus service, the WSU shuttle, and now a "car-share program" at WSU, many residents choose to leave their cars at home! Shorty's is not only close to WSU, it is also just a few blocks from grocery stores, banks and cafes. Beautiful Lake Park with miles of paved exercise trails is only 3 blocks away. Students enjoy the academic and social benefits of being steps from campus with the comfort, privacy and space of a studio apartment for study and relaxation. Best of all, it costs much less than a shared campus dorm with the bathroom down the hall!
