Columbia, S.C. — A public-private partnership between the University of South Carolina and Greystar has opened Campus Village, a $240 million residence hall development. Construction on the project, which includes four buildings offering 1,800 beds, began in May 2019. Each six-story building is connected by pedestrian promenades that run alongside green space, courtyards and a clock tower. Beds are offered in pod-style units alongside shared amenities including study and classroom spaces and community kitchens. The development also features a 14,000-square-foot dining hall that seats 650 students; a sundry shop dubbed The Gamecock General Store; retail space leased to Jimmy John’s and Starbucks Coffee; and shuttle service to and from central campus. The project is home to several living-learning communities, including those for information, design and computing; engineering and computing; and entrepreneurship and innovation. The development team for Campus Village included Contract Construction, Juneau Construction and WDG.
