Info from the Grand View wedsite:
Grand View is strengthening its commitment to providing students an enhanced residential experience with the construction of a new student suite complex located between Hull Avenue and Boyd Street on the north end of campus. A groundbreaking ceremony took place on Tuesday, October 17th at the site of the $4.7 million project. Target date for completion of the suites is mid-July 2007, just in time for students to move in for the Fall 2007 semester.
Dr. Jay Prescott, vice president for student affairs, explains that this is another step in the journey toward independence that students take from living at home to self-sufficiency. Grand View currently offers traditional single and double occupancy rooms, as well as four-to-six person campus apartments. These new suites will provide a bridge between the other options already available on campus. The suites may offer residents more privacy and flexibility than the traditional dormitory style residence halls, while still being a part of campus amenities including the meal plan.
The three-story 32,000 square-foot building will have 40 suites and 154 beds. Each suite will have two bedrooms, with two people per bedroom, as well as a living area and a bathroom. All residents will have access to a second floor laundry room. The suites will not have kitchens, so students living there will need to have a meal plan on campus. The building will also have an elevator and be handicap accessible, with two rooms on the first floor being wheelchair accessible.
