JP2 Commons Student Suites is an off-campus student housing community located close to UMKC and Rockhurst University’s campuses. Debuted in August 2018, this renovated facility hosts a variety of room types and several community spaces for studying or socializing. Need assistance? Resident assistants are there to support you every step of the way!

Students can also take advantage of the community kitchen to prepare quick meal or the gym to shoot hoops in between classes. Additionally, the outdoor courtyard provides green space in the Kansas City cityscape for yard games, picnics, and other entertainment.

JP2 Commons is located on the southeast edge of the Volker campus and is in walking distance to classroom spaces, academic support, and various food options. Students may also utilize the nearby campus shuttle or Kansas City MAX bus stops for additional access to campus and beyond.
