Board of Trustees’ Update
The first spade went into the ground for the
new West Campus Housing in late 2013. Now
with a scheduled opening for mid-August 2014,
construction is well underway. Assisting with
the design and construction of the building
are Kinsley Construction Company; Crabtree,
Rohrbaugh & Associates, project architects; and
Chester Valley Engineers.
The first phase of this new housing project
will include two, of what will ultimately be 10,
three-story buildings each containing multiple
apartment-style units built on a wooded area
near the athletic fields on the west side of cam-
pus. Each fully-furnished suite will feature four
or five private bedrooms (single occupancy), a
complete kitchen including dishwasher, an open
dining and living area with a wall-mounted flat-
screen television, compartmentalized bathrooms
and a shared laundry area. Immaculata’s West
Campus Housing Village is located behind the
University’s tennis courts and parking lot “B”.
Selected by a lottery, upperclassmen will
have the option of residing in the new apartments.
“Students have shown an overwhelming
interest [in West Campus Housing] so far with
excitement over the amenities offered,” stated
