The location, 1835 Ousdahl Road, is also a convenient walk, bus or bike ride to the science and research buildings in the West District, or the libraries and academic buildings of north campus. And here's a bird's eye view of all Student Housing properties in which you can see the apartment complex.

These apartments are part of the broader $350 million Central District project outlined in the KU Master Plan. The construction also includes a new residence hall and dining center, science buildings, student union, power plant, parking, and space for future academic buildings.
