University-based retirement communities hold great appeal for empty nesters who are hungry for more than a traditional senior living community can offer. Just a handful of these partnerships between universities and retirement communities exist and they take a variety of forms: a university-based retirement community may be on, or close to, the school, or offer specially curated lifelong learning for residents when they visit the campus. Others boast an affiliation with a university in name only.
A Rare Bird
Broadview at Purchase College is unique among university-based retirement communities. Now under construction just 13 miles north of Larchmont in central Westchester County, it’s embedded on the wooded and parkland acreage of the Purchase College campus. Read the full feature on The Larchmont Loop.
