Construction Updates

April 2019 — Crossings West is in the final stages of building, with 24 new apartments being fitted with appliances and finishes selected by those who will start moving in this June. With 79 new Crossings apartments added to the number of residential living homes, the choices of homes on campus for future residents has increased considerably. That also means there is a better possibility that just the right home may be available for interested persons to move into within the year. To find out about current and future residency, contact the Residency Planning team at 717-581-3935.
