With some dormitories on the Palm Beach Atlantic University campus over 40 years old, many students worry about the conditions of their rooms.
In particular, recent concerns have been raised about Flagler Towers, built in 1964 and acquired by PBA in 1986; the Lakeview Apartments, also built in 1964 and acquired in 2004; and the Mango apartments, built between 1920 and 1935 and acquired in the 1980s.
There are 25 buildings on campus and renovations occur every year, primarily scheduled over the summer.
According to Gary Parker, associate vice president of Facilities and Construction, the weather takes a toll on the paint, which is the first line of defense to prevent leaks and other types of damage from occurring.
