Welcome to the Buchanan Towers community, home to Buchanan Towers and Buchanan Towers East.

Residents can catch the bus to class in front of the building or enjoy the short route up South Campus Drive; both are convenient and quick. Buchanan Towers and Buchanan Towers East are just minutes away from the Fairhaven dining commons, the Wade King Recreation Center, Arboretum, and the Outback farm. Tennis courts and playing fields are also located just across the street.

 

Below you will find information like front desk hours, community updates, floor plans, professional live-in staff, and more.
