In our independent living community at University Place, you’ll enjoy the comfortable retirement lifestyle you’ve earned, along with the freedom to focus on the things you enjoy most – without having to worry about the pesky burdens of home maintenance or yard chores.
Situated next to the scenic Celery Bog Nature Area in West Lafayette, Indiana, University Place is affiliated with Purdue University and offers a variety of engaging activities and educational opportunities for growth and enjoyment. Additionally, you’ll find peace of mind for the future, knowing that you’ll have a continuum of care available to you if circumstances change in the future.
Our lovely one- or two-bedroom apartments and garden homes are sure to make you feel comfortable, safe and just like home.

"Mt. Alverna has such a friendly and caring personality and atmosphere. The skilled care helped me achieve independence and regain strength. Even the social activities reinforce physical therapy. I am blessed to have been able to rehab at this facility this past Spring."
