The University's master plan calls for an additional 1270 bed. The University intends to build 1270 student beds for first-year students in a multi-phase project on a parcel of land owned by the CCU Student Housing Foundation known as the Elvington Property with initial (Phase 1), student occupancy for 635 possible in Fall, 2014.
This traditional, but modern residence hall should have double-loaded corridors with junior suites, or semi-suites, providing double-occupancy bedrooms and a minimum of one bathroom with separate vanity and lockable water closet per semi-suite. A heavy emphasis should be placed on community spaces on each floor with a ratio of two large community spaces, one quiet study room and one living room space per 35 residents. Full wireless and wired internet connectivity, access control and security systems including mechanical and electronic locks, security cameras and fire safety equipment, high efficiency laundry machines, custodial and maintenance storage and working space, apartments for professional live-in staff, as well as professional offices, reception, and meeting space. Office space is being planned throughout the complex for University Housing staff of 20-25.
The phased in approach will allow for future growth and also allow for upperclassmen to have the option of living on campus. This project will meet the University's Strategic Plan to grow to 12,500 students by 2020.
