| For the first time, Roosevelt University is housing most of its students in a facility it owns: the $128.5M, 32-story, 633-bed vertical campus that it built at 425 S Wabash Ave. The university's campus planning whiz Steve Hoselton
says this is critical to its academic mission by increasing students'
safety and providing educational programming to the residents (it also
stacks the housing with faculty and staff offices). The tower, now in
its first year of operation, is the second-tallest US academic building and has allowed Roosevelt to cancel most of its student housing contracts with private landlords. Hear more from Steve at Bisnow’s Chicago Student Housing Summit, Dec. 6 at the W Chicago City Center. Register! |
