After nearly 50 years Western Michigan University will be constructing a new housing facility for students. The new campus apartment complex is designed to meet the needs of upperclass students, and the design reflects both market analysis and student comments. The Western View will be built on the west side of campus in two phases. Phase 1 will start construction this summer; Phase 2 is in development.
Phase 1 is being planned for the area bounded by Trimpe Building on the north, Knollwood Avenue on the west and Kohrman Hall on the east. Construction Site
The Phase 1 complex will consist of four three-story apartments buildings. The complex will contain 1, 2, 3, and 4 bedroom units for a total of 300 beds. Floor Plans
The apartments will be available to upperclass students. They are intended to be competitively priced with comparable off-campus apartments. Architect Rendering
The project will incorporate many sustainable design elements, and has been projected to achieve LEED® Certified or LEED Silver. LEED Checklist
