What is the current status of 709 N. High Street?

The Gaskins House, as 709 N. High Street is now formally known on WVU’s campus, is owned and operated by SigEp National Housing (“SENH”), through SigEp Housing of West Virginia Beta, LLC, a Virginia limited liability company.  SENH originally leased the Gaskins House to WVU under the terms of a 5 year operating lease ended May 31, 2013, and most recently under the terms of a 2 year operating lease ended May 31, 2015.  Beginning with the 2015-2016 academic year, SENH leased the house to Greek System Support Corporation.  The tenants allowed to live in the Gaskins House were limited under the terms of the lease, and included fraternities.
