As we prepare for the arrival of our new students on August 24, a new chapter begins in the campus life of DeSales.
The first section of the University Heights (units 1 through 6), built and opened in 1984, have been converted to housing for University graduate students.
Each of the six Heights will be able to house four graduate students who will have their own rooms. Alongside this, they will be able to share a communal kitchen and living space. The Heights will be available on a one-year lease program, with rooms going on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Renovations, which occurred all summer, included converting kitchenettes to full kitchens as well as upgrading the sprinkler system for the units (right). Other improvements include new bathrooms, improved heating and cooling, University card access, and wireless internet. New furniture includes a dining room table and chairs and new sofas, love seats, and end tables.
Students who will live in the Heights this year include nursing, physician assistant, and physical therapy graduate students. The housing is available to any student in one of the school’s eight graduate programs.
