Student Housing Village

The site stretches from the campus lake southward to Ponce de Leon Boulevard and westward to Merrick Drive.

The 12-acre village is comprised of 25 interconnected buildings and a multitude of outdoor spaces including a grand courtyard, study spots, recreational spaces and outdoor terraces.

In addition to five floors of student housing for 1,115 primarily sophomores, as well as juniors and seniors, the first floor and mezzanine level of the main structure serve as retail, event and office spaces.

In an effort to activate the space surrounding Lake Osceola, amenities include a large exhibition space for dynamic programming and other meeting spaces such as an auditorium, a classroom and multi-use pavilion.
