Kennesaw State University announced this week that its fifth on-campus housing facility is nearing completion.
According to a release from the university, construction of the 207,500-square-foot University Place II residence hall began in October and is slated for completion before classes resume in August. The facility sits on six acres and will house 451 students, bringing the total number of on-campus beds to nearly 3,500.
University Place II compliments Kennesaw State’s University Place I housing project, which opened in 2002. Both facilities are reserved for upper-class students.
A new outdoor amphitheater is also being constructed near the project to provide an attractive space for expanded student activities near the complex, the release said.
“It’s important for students and parents to understand the difference between KSU’s on-campus housing options and the off-campus apartments that are being built around the campus,” said Kennesaw State Vice President for
