DENVER -- College students who live at the Overlook Apartments, at 14th and Irving Streets, said proximity to a light rail station is what makes the complex most attractive to them -- it's that much easier to get to campus downtown.

Some same college students have been forced to look for new housing after, they said, the landlord and public health officials told them there was asbestos in two of the towers.

Two students said when there were informed, they were also told they only had hours to take away non-tainted, personal items before the building would be sealed off to residents.

In the meantime, Overlook Apartments has paid for hotel vouchers and given residents per diem.

Though, with mid-terms on the horizon, students said the timing could not be worse.

A phone call and e-mail sent to the Overlook Apartment's Property Management were not returned.
