DeVry University’s south Kansas City campus will provide customizable office space for small businesses and freelancers. The newly remodeled, 6,000-square-foot building will feature classrooms, cubicle spaces, Smart Boards, a conference room, TVs, vending machines and a kitchenette.

The university is flexible with lease lengths, and rental prices vary according to necessary amenities, said Shelley Wales, associate director of career services. Ken Ross, president of DeVry’s Kansas City Metro campus, said the idea came about when the school recognized a void of entrepreneurial office space near the campus.

“We noticed a lack of available space for small business entrepreneurs in the south KC area and realized that we could help by opening our location to area businesses,” Ross said.”
