The non-profit CCRC Development Corporation is planning a significant senior living campus near the University of Central Florida in Orlando, and Senior Housing News recently featured the project.

The planned project is called Legacy Pointe at UCF, and it would feature 296 total units and close ties to its namesake university. Residents will get a student ID card, as well as access to the university’s athletic events, lectures, libraries, concerts, performances and other events.

“Our Legacy Pointe members will be treated like VIPs on the UCF campus,” said Project Coordinator Zan Reynolds in the story.

Legacy Pointe residents will benefit from proximity to the university, and university students will benefit from proximity to Legacy Pointe. Students in the nursing, medicine and hospitality programs will spend time at the senior living community to complete coursework, participate in internships and even hold jobs.
