Western View Apartments Construction Project

New Campus Apartments

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.
