Ogden, Utah — Phase I of Wildcat Village, a $32 million, three-phase development, has opened and will welcome students for the 2011 fall semester at Weber State University (WSU) in Ogden. A LEED Silver certification candidate, Wildcat Village replaces LaSal, Wasatch and Stansbury halls as well as Promontory Tower. Upon completion in the next few years, the community will encompass 172,150 square feet in three residence halls, providing accommodations for more than 500 students. Phase I of Wildcat Village includes Hall One and the Wildcat Village parking area. Phase II will include Hall Two, a large commons area, a dining hall and the WSU Housing offices. Phase III will conclude the development with Hall Three, which will employ a pod-style configuration. Wildcat Village was designed by Salt Lake City-based MHTN Architects, and Campus Living Villages will oversee its operations.
“Wildcat Village represents a new era in residential living for students,” says Brett Perozzi, WSU associate vice president for Student Affairs. “It features living environments that will foster community and promote engagement.”
Positioned in a semicircle, the buildings will open onto a courtyard with playing fields, a volleyball court and a fire pit. Interiors will offer activity lounges, a fitness center, and common kitchens and eating areas.
