Project funded by Tax Increment Finance Authority, compliments recent Downtown developments geared towards student communityThe Downtown Education Nook (the DEN) situated on the corner of Auburn and Squirrel Roads in the heart of Downtown Auburn Hills, officially opened for use this week, offering the community a comfortable facility for studying, leisure, or meeting with small groups.
The cabin is complete with two fireplaces, free wi-fi, comfortable seating as well as private desk spaces and five separate rooms providing students and the community with both quiet and casual study spaces for individuals and small groups. Open late for studying, the DEN's current operating hours are 4 p.m.-midnight Monday-Friday, and 2 p.m.-midnight on Saturday and Sunday. A building attendant will be on duty to assist patrons of the building with any questions or address any issues.
The completion and opening of the DEN finishes off a group of downtown development projects by the city and TIFA that focus on the student population of Auburn Hills. The University Center (an educational facility with classroom space for use by the surrounding colleges, universities and public schools) held its first classes this month and the four-story, 97-unit Auburn Square Apartment complex is seeing good occupancy numbers after opening last fall.
