-A +A
William Jessup University is the recipient of the 2009 Education Award honoring the university for its new student apartment complex. The complex doubles on campus housing for students attending the Christian Liberal Arts University. Six public and private sector awards were presented by PG&E’s Steven J. Nichols at the annual breakfast, held on March 17. “Each of these recipients has contributed to the economic success of Placer County,” Nichols said. “We have significant reason to celebrate.” The 192-bed apartment building contains 24 total apartments, each with four fully furnished bedrooms and two baths. The eight-person suites are approximately 1,420 square feet in size. Apartment amenities include a full kitchen with new appliances, wireless internet and basic television service, central air and heating, a 100-space, two-story parking garage, multiple laundry facilities and a large courtyard suitable for community gatherings and barbeques. Earlier this year, Jessup’s student apartment complex won an Award of Honor from the American Institute of Architects San Joaquin Chapter. The five-story apartment complex was designed by Taylor Teter Partnership, an architectural firm in Fresno. The student apartments mark the first completed milestone in the university’s $25 million expansion phase. ~ Staff report
