Park University is expanding its Gilbert Campus in the University Building located in Gilbert’s Heritage District. On August 1, the Gilbert Town Council approved a lease amendment in support of Park University increasing its footprint from just under 11,000 square-feet to nearly 18,000 square-feet.
Park University has experienced great success since launching classes in Gilbert in Fall 2018. The University expects enrollment at the start of the Fall 2019 semester — the beginning of the University’s second year in Gilbert — to exceed its projections. The amendment also expands the University’s initial three-year lease term to a five-year lease term through June 30, 2023.
“Park University is immersed in the community and is a collaborative partner in support of Gilbert’s mission,” said Mayor Jenn Daniels. “As we work to build the ‘City of the Future,’ I look forward to supporting Park University’s expansion efforts as they continue to deliver quality higher education for undergraduate and graduate students alike.”
