Jayhawker Towers Apartments

(JAYT)
1603 W. 15th St. Lawrence, KS 66045

This apartment complex, opened Sept. 30, 1969, was bought by KU in 1980. It is designed for single, nontraditional, upper-classmen or transfer students in four towers; a fifth tower has a service center, commons and Academic Resource Center. All apartments are two-bedroom and shared by either two or four residents. The project, designed by Woodward & Cape of Dallas, was the brainchild of alumni K.S. Adams, W.W. Keeler, and Stanley Learned.

Since fall 2009, major renovations totaling about $14 million were done in Tower A and Tower D. The project, designed by Slemmons Associates of Topeka, includes new windows, wiring, air-conditioning, and elevators as well as remodeled interiors. Renovations of Towers B and C and the construction of a community center will proceed at a later date.
