For the first time at Bradley University, some freshmen will get to live off campus.

The university is launching a pilot program allowing around 20 first year students to move into the new $20 million upscale student housing complex off campus.

The private suites in Peoria are called Main Street Commons. Each suite has its own washer and dryer with a private bathroom, among other amenities.

Freshmen also get parking spots, a perk not available to all freshmen on campus. But they'll have abide by campus rules.

Eighteen-year-old Jacob Becker from Amboy thinks the privacy and separate place to study will be nice.
