Bobcat Village II mixes sophomores with other upperclassmen in housing on the western campus near many university sport venues. Each of the three buildings that comprise the 420 beds is L-shaped and oriented on the site to face the soccer field. This configuration creates a large landscaped quadrangle, contributing to the overall community feel.
The typical unit consists of four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living area and a kitchen. A minimal number of one- and two-bedroom units are included to accommodate the varied housing preferences of students.
Building amenities include elevator access to all floors of all buildings, laundry facilities on each floor, and enclosed, conditioned corridor access. Brick and stucco building facades, an abundance of windows and close, accessible parking create the environment of upscale apartment living. Additionally, students have access to a clubhouse that includes a 1,000-square-foot meeting room and an extension to the pool deck.
