The Overlook at Riverdale

The Overlook at Riverdale, Marian University’s newest housing option for medical and graduate students, will be ready for students to move in on July 24 or sooner.

The new three-wing apartment community is four stories, has 88 units, offers ample reserved resident parking immediately adjacent to the building, and enjoys scenic views of the Nina Mason Pulliam EcoLab and the entire Marian University campus.

The university announced plans for The Overlook in February 2014 after surveys with Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine students indicated a desire to live on campus.

“Having housing that is designed for graduate-level students is essential to our growth,” said President Elsener when the announcement was made.

This latest edition to campus will allow residents to live with classmates and interact in an academic environment, while enjoying the privacy and autonomy of a private apartment.

Units range from studio to three bedroom and amenities include:

  • Fully-equipped stainless steel kitchen package
  • Granite countertops
  • Washer and dryer in each unit
  • 24-hour private study rooms with white boards, large-screen TVs, and tables and chairs
  • Outdoor courtyard, fire pit, and grills
  • Fully-furnished options available
