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 student housing was built to assist with the college’s expansion efforts and accommodate its growth.
Phase I of the project was the construction of a three-story, 23,386-square foot, 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 encourages 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 a 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 are also available on all floors for the students to utilize.
Phase II of the student housing project has a very similar program from the first phase, with the addition of an RD Suite on the second floor.
