The Deacon is an 11-story, 357-unit student housing development that will serve the students of the University of Cincinnati. This new development is located on the former Deaconess Hospital site. This project’s first phase will deliver a mid-rise 1,029-bed housing development and the renovation of the former parking garage on the property. The Deacon includes one- to four-bedroom apartments, each bedroom with its own bathroom.
The Deacon includes 17,500 square feet of customized amenities. Residents have access to a jam lounge, music practice rooms, a golf simulator/game room, pet spa, 24/7 fitness center, hammock lounge, and private study lounges. The project also includes pedestrian connections to the existing six-story parking garage, which will undergo aesthetic updates and repairs.
