University of Phoenix to open west campus at NewMarket

The University of Phoenix is opening a west-side campus at NewMarket Square at 21st and Maize.

“From a student’s standpoint, they’re going to be ecstatic about coming out to NewMarket Square,” says April Reed of Slawson Cos., which owns the center.

Reed says she can envision students stopping off at NewMarket’s numerous restaurants before or after class or stopping in various stores to run errands while there.

In the past, the University of Phoenix has been in office settings, Reed says. It has an east Wichita campus at the Feist building at 3020 N. Cypress Dr. It’s now moving into retail areas as well.
