The University Retirement Community at Purchase College

Retiring Near Campus – The URC Experience

Opened in the Winter Of 2023, and located on the campus of Purchase College, Broadway Senior Living offers retirees unique opportunities to enjoy an active, engaging, and nurturing life in a welcoming and stimulating environment.

Benefits of University Senior Living

Broadway Senior Living joins the relatively small number of university retirement communities (URC) located in the U.S. URCs are located near or immediately adjacent to a college or university campus, providing seniors opportunities to take classes, meet with students and professors, and enjoy the many learning opportunities and cultural activities provided by the college or university.

Admittedly, this is a new and rather unique approach to active retirement, and if you’re not already familiar with the concept, here are a few advantages of living in a URC.

1. Housing Options: URCs usually offer a range of senior housing options, with particular emphasis on independent living. At Broadview Senior Living, a range of floor plans allows you to select the space that suits you best. Each residence, regardless of your choice, features luxurious finishes and meticulously planned designs.

Residents enjoy 9-foot ceilings, expansive patios or porches, energy-efficient windows, heated, underground parking, and easy access to community activities and an 11-acre park.

2. Proximity to the University: As the name implies, URCs are strategically located on or near a college or university campus. Broadview Senior Living is advantageously situated on the Purchase College campus, providing residents with effortless access to campus resources, events, and facilities.

3. Lifelong Educational Opportunities: One of the key benefits of a URC is the opportunity for residents to engage in lifelong learning. At Broadview Senior Living, residents have the option to audit classes, as well as attend lectures, sporting events, and cultural events hosted by Purchase College.

4. Intellectual Stimulation: Residing near a college or university offers older adults an intellectually enriching environment, where they can engage with professors, students, and fellow residents who are equally passionate about learning. This interaction helps maintain an active and stimulated mind throughout retirement.

5. Cultural Enrichment: URCs, such as Broadview Senior Living, provide seamless access to college or university cultural amenities like art galleries, theaters, and libraries. This allows residents to effortlessly immerse themselves in a culturally rich experience, complete with performances, exhibitions, and an array of literary resources.

6. Social Engagement: URCs foster vital social interactions among residents, effectively building community and mitigating social isolation. Through the Broadview Learning Commons, residents have the opportunity to connect with peers, students, and faculty, participating in enriching learning experiences and volunteer mentoring initiatives.

7. Sense of Purpose: Engaging with the university community and participating in educational and cultural activities can give our residents a sense of purpose and fulfillment during their retirement years.

8. Intergenerational Interaction: Residing in proximity to a university provides residents the unique opportunity to engage with younger generations, thereby cultivating meaningful intergenerational relationships and facilitating the exchange of wisdom and life experiences.

Welcoming All Seniors to Our Community

In addition to all of the above advantages, Broadview Senior Living is SAGECare certified, meaning that our staff has received extensive training in providing a warm, nurturing, and accepting community for members of the LGBTQ+ community.
