New Housing Option Announced for Students
Studio apartments in Brooklyn will expand college's presence to a second borough
NEW YORK, March 28, 2011—The King’s College is pleased to announce the expansion of its student housing options for the 2011-2012 academic year. With the addition of an apartment building in Brooklyn that will be solely occupied by The King’s College, we are now able to offer housing for students in four different locations.
“After months of intense searching all over New York City, we are happy to find this fantastic building in an equally fantastic neighborhood,” said Duanne Moeller, Chief Administrative Officer. “The studio apartments will allow the House system to remain intact, and will allow us to continue offering excellent living environments to our students.”
The new apartment building is located on Clark Street in the gorgeous neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights. Recently named “one of the five best Brooklyn blocks to live on” by L Magazine, the studio apartments will allow up to sixty students the chance to live in one of New York’s fastest-growing neighborhoods. The building is located just two blocks from a subway, so students will have a safe and easy twenty-five minute commute to the Empire State Building.
Each apartment in the building is a studio, with a full kitchen. The College will offer free wireless internet and cable, and will provide 24 hour security for the students living there. The building’s amenities also include a community room, a rooftop lounge, and a laundry room. Located walking distance from Hillside Park, the Brooklyn heights Promenade, and the recently opened Brooklyn Bridge Park, the building will provide students with the opportunity to immerse themselves in the growing cultural center of the borough.
The announcement made by Dean Eric Bennett was met with great enthusiasm by the students. Student Body President Pam Dodge said, “The building was fantastic. I was impressed by the size of the studio apartments and the great common spaces in the basement and on the roof.” Other students were also happy about the possibility of living in Brooklyn, with cheaper groceries and more of a neighborhood feeling.
The King’s College is located in the Empire State Building in New York City.
