Lynn University is excited to welcome the new housing building, Capstone Apartments, for upperclassmen students this 2022 Fall.
Students are delighted to see the new housing option get constructed as they are looking forward to moving in for this upcoming fall semester. The new residential building, named Capstone Apartments, will provide a housing opportunity for students with 60 credits or above (juniors, seniors, and graduate students). Capstone Apartments will feature apartment-style rooms and private studio rooms.
“We are really excited because Capstone Apartments will provide single rooms to all students, and we know as they enter their junior, senior, and graduate years, they are really wanting that privacy while simultaneously being able to co-live with some of their best friends in an apartment,” said Hannah Link, Director of Housing and Residence Life.
Some of Capstone’s features will include multipurpose rooms, laundry rooms on each floor, tv lounges, and flexible and quiet study spaces for students. “The new building will have incredible amenity spaces for students to spend time together whether it’s participating in class work, group projects, or just spending time and building relationships with their peers,” said Link.
Each room will also have a kitchen area including a stove, oven, microwave, and full-size refrigerator. This is perhaps one of the most exciting features for students, compared to other housing buildings, as this will give them the ability to prepare meals in their living space.
“Many of our upper-class students have been interested in living on campus, and we are excited to provide that to them. Our hope is to have this experience so that they can feel more independent before transitioning off campus,” said Kristy Shore, Associate Director of Housing and Residence Life.
Furthermore, this will provide an excellent opportunity for students to become prepared for living off-campus post their studies. They will be given the opportunity to live more independently while still being at a walking distance from their classrooms and in a very safe community.
“I expect that the additional 341 student beds are not only going to be felt here in the housing buildings, but will be felt throughout the whole campus as it is a significant amount of students which we will be able to provide a home away from home to,” said Shore.
At the beginning of March, the office of Housing and Residence Life will be hosting informational Zoom sessions for all parents and students in regards to Capstone Apartments. If you have any questions about housing, please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
