Retirement, Aging & Health Neighborhood

This neighborhood, now in development, is anchored by WCU’s College of Health and Human Sciences, with its 14 health and health-related disciplines. It is an ideal location for:

  • Private health-care providers
  • Specialty housing related to older populations
  • Research and development, product development, manufacturing or health-related services

Completed in 2012, the 160,000-square-foot Health and Human Sciences building serves as the cornerstone of the neighborhood. Students and faculty will study and teach alongside a mixed-use area that could include health-care providers, medical device companies and specialized clinics. Students and faculty interested in these areas could study, teach and live in this neighborhood.

WCU is in the process of partnering with a developer on an attractive, functional, affordable multitenant medical office building to complement the Health and Human Sciences Building.
