Free Houses – With a Catch!

One of the country’s top Universities is giving away houses for free! The only catch is that it can’t stay on the Princeton campus. You have to haul it away!

The houses are actually on Alexander street, south of the Princeton University campus. A University spokesperson told ABC News that the buildings are free in “as-is” condition. They were previously used as University offices or for other purposes, but are now scheduled for demolition as planners make way for the new Art and Transit Project. It will include a new train station and retail outlets, plus public spaces and buildings for the arts. Construction is due to begin early this year. The buildings are not in move-in condition.

There’s no specific deadline for applying for the buildings but, obviously, interested parties will want to contact the University as soon as possible before destruction begins. The houses need to be moved by the end of April. Interested people can contact the Princeton University office of Community and Regional Affairs at 609-258-3204 or by email at
