DeVry University opens first student residence hall
by Jason Roth
DeVry University's Fremont campus is bustling with activity following the opening of Taylor Hall, the university system's first ever residence hall.
The 84,000 square-foot complex, with a 300 student capacity, is a modern three-story building with furnished single and double occupancy dorm rooms equipped with high-speed Internet access and satellite television. The building also includes a full-service dining facility, laundry facilities on each floor, fitness center, game room and computer lab.
Taylor Hall staff is comprised of full-time professionals and part-time student staff members who live onsite, providing residents with security, comprehensive support services and a variety of education-based programs and activities.
"Educational programs, activities and services are an integral part of the co-curricular experience of Taylor Hall. They are designed to complement student learning and personal growth beyond the classroom," said DeVry University's Fremont campus president Kandy Simmons. "Students have the opportunity to get involved in social events, intramural sports, cultural activities, leadership roles, and a myriad of other campus activities."
Located at 34793 Ardentech Ct., Taylor Hall is situated on five acres adjacent to the DeVry University Fremont campus. Taylor Hall is named after Ron Taylor, CEO of DeVry Inc., DeVry University's parent company, and co-founder of Keller Graduate School of Management, DeVry University's graduate school.
