The two-person semi-suite halls will accommodate 1,360 underclassmen on the southeast part of campus. The estimated project cost is $107 million and was financed by tax-exempt bonds issued by the District of Columbia. The project team that Campus Apartments and Howard University assembled includes Provident Resources Group, RBC Capital, Clark Construction and McKissack & McKissack.

The two buildings will be developed as live-learn facilities that will include a 200-person multipurpose room, classrooms, academic advisory offices and a new space for the university’s office of residence life.

The new residence halls will be built in close proximity to existing campus facilities in a strategic effort to bring underclassmen closer to the core of campus and to increase opportunities for collaborate learning. The buildings will also serve as a recruitment tool for future students, according to university leaders.
