The University of South Carolina is pleased to welcome its students to its biggest construction project since its founding 222 years ago. This project is the university’s new Campus Village student housing complex, which includes four buildings set to accommodate 1,800 students. This new construction project will provide undergraduate students with more student housing options to alleviate the housing shortage, and this also aligns with the university’s vision of growth.
About The Project
USC Campus Village has been under development since 2019 with a budget of $240 million in a collaboration between the famous developer Greystar and USC, which will also assist in managing the properties. The property’s architectural design, which features a unique red-brick style, and planning were overseen by Boudreaux, with construction being assigned to Contract Construction and Juneau Construction.
USC Campus Village Building Features
This new University of South Carolina student housing complex features six-storey buildings. It will feature various green areas, study spaces for a focused study session, classroom spaces, pod-styled bedrooms, and large shared kitchens. This new student housing complex will also have various features, including dining facilities, living and learning communities, and nearby transportation spots.
USC’s Campus Village is home to a 14,000-square-foot dining hall called “The Pavillion,” which supports up to 650 students and is the perfect dining spot, serving various meals to meet your taste and dietary needs. The food at The Pavilion ranges from Pizza to Asian Cuisine to Vegan food options and allergen-free options, among many others.
You will also have access to great retail spaces, which include famous brands such as Starbucks Coffee, Jimmy John’s sandwich shop, and the Gamecock General store. 13 Living and Learning communities will also be part of the student complex, which includes Entrepreneurship and Innovation; Engineering and Computing; Information, Design, and Computing; and other communities. These Living and Learning communities will give students a unique co-curricular and academic experience.
Campus Village will also have shuttles to take students to and from the university campus to USC Campus Village, which will also feature parking spots for students.
