Indianapolis — American Campus Communities Inc. will break ground this month on the Sunset Student Residences, a 633-bed sophomore residence hall on the campus of Butler University in Indianapolis.
The $40 million facility will open in August 2016. The site previously had been a parking lot.
Sunset Student Residences is the result of a partnership between ACC and Butler University. ACC will build and maintain the facility, while Butler will provide staff to manage the building.
Sunset Student Residences will feature suites of three- and four-bedroom floor plans, with no more than two students in any room. Each shared room is configured with a divider for privacy. There will be a bathroom for every bedroom, and each student will have their own vanity and sink. In addition, each suite will have a kitchenette and furnished living room area.
The facility also features a large multipurpose room. Other amenities will include a fireplace and social lounge in the connecting area between the two buildings, an outdoor kitchen and barbecue, a lounge on each floor (some for recreation, some for study) and a small cardio-fitness center.
