Background informationProject Created: June 13, 2017

Project Name: Univ. of S. Carolina Campus Village Project
Year in Operation: 2025
Sector: Buildings
Subsector: School
Status: Project Definition / Programming
Type: New Facility
Description: The University is seeking to deliver a dynamic Campus Village (Village Project) which includes new housing communities along with dining, recreation, parking, academic and student support spaces. The Village is anticipated to include approximately 3,000 - 4,000 student beds in multiple 3-6 story residential buildings constructed of noncombustible materials. Parking to support this development will be a mix of surface and structured multi-story garages and may be adjacent to or beneath the housing units. The parcels designated for this portion of the Village are currently occupied by the Bates House, Bates West, Carolina Gardens, and Cliff Apartments residence halls, which are owned by the University. The scope of the project has been revised in 2016 and 2017 after conversations with the community, which resulted in smaller parking facilities and different phasing plans.
Delivery Method as described in the country where it's located: Design Build Finance Operate Maintain
Is the project still active: Yes
Comments: The land is already owned by the University, and will be leased to the Developer. The structures will be designed, constructed, fully financed, and operated and maintained by a Developer, with ownership of all structures reverting to the University no later than at the end of the lease term. The existing four residence halls at the site will be abated and removed as part of the project.
