Located in Leesburg, Florida, Beacon College is the first higher learning institution in the country to award Bachelor degrees exclusively to students with learning disabilities. The three-story, 23,386-square foot student housing was built to assist with the college’s expansion efforts and accommodate its growth. It is comprised of 74 single-occupancy bedrooms, with 14 5-bedroom and two 2-bedroom suites spread across all three floors.
The building is not merely a means to house students; it also encourage peer interaction. The first floor has a 16 to 20-person multi-purpose room that will serve as a gathering space for students. Amenities such as the residential kitchen and recreation rooms on the first floor around the entrance lobby are designed to encourage engagement among residents. Lounge areas with exterior views on all floors serve as gathering spaces and also double as study areas for students. Laundry rooms will also be available on all floors for student convenience.
The student residence building will be ready for student move-in by Fall semester 2018.
