Truman State University’s residence building, Centennial Hall, will temporarily house Kirksville Oscar Mayer employees from Guam and Hawaii, according to a City of Kirksville press release.
The housing is transitional while the workers find permanent housing. The workers will take a one credit-hour class to help them become familiar with the area and have a smooth transition, according to the press release.
Typically groups of only 20-25 workers will be living in the hall at a time, said Public Relations Director Travis Miles via email.
Centennial Hall was closed for the 2022-2023 academic year because of lower student demand and upcoming renovations.
