The University of Toledo will open a brand new living community for the start of the 2015-16 academic year.The Honors Academic Village is located just south of Bancroft Street at the corner of Campus Road and West Rocket Drive near the Memorial Field House.
The living community will have close to 500 state-of-the-art apartments with one-bed and one-bath, two-bed and one-bath, and four-bed and two-bath floor plans.
The Honors Academic Village will have a Mac and PC computer center, smart board-equipped study rooms, and iPad bar for residents to use.
A 24-hour fitness center, on-site laundry facilities, and a recreation center featuring billiards, pingpong and foosball are some of the other amenities included at the new village.
Students also will have the opportunity to participate in several Living and Learning Communities, including Engineering, Global Health, and Peace, Sustainability and Global Citizenship, to join peers who are committed to their academics, as well as making a difference in the community.
“The vision of the project was to create a space for students who have similar types of academic pursuits and interests to come together and support one another. It is designed to be a place where students can collaborate, share and build upon their ideas,” said Dr. Lakeesha Ransom, dean of the Jesup Scott Honors College.
Financial aid funds can be applied to living in the Honors Academic Village, and returning UT students will have the option to select a meal plan.
“We wanted to create a space that would provide students with amenities and programs, and give them a sense of home and comfort,” Ransom said.
Space is limited, and rooms are filling quickly. The Honors Academic Village is accepting applications and leases.
