This building was designed with students in mind. The building has 8 three-bedroom and 8 four-bedroom apartments, which are fully furnished and coed-optional, with each resident having a private bedroom with locks. Apartments have a full, open kitchen with a dishwasher, refrigerator, oven and microwave; a washer and dryer; and two full bathrooms per unit, plus additional vanities to accommodate every resident.  Additional amenities include a flat-screen TV, wireless, digital cable, and a location just immediately adjacent to campus. Students can join with friends to lease an entire apartment or lease a single bedroom in an apartment shared by others. Residents can take advantage of the close proximity and walk to classes.
