Kennesaw, Ga. — Grand opening of $26 Million University Place II marks university's 10th year as a residential campus.
Kennesaw, Ga. — Move-in day for many Kennesaw State University students this year coincides with the opening of the university's newest residence hall: University Place II, the new 451-bed, 207,500-square-foot apartment complex for upper-class students.
The new housing addition will bring the number of on-campus beds to nearly 3,500 — and will help KSU mark 10 years as a residential campus.
University Place II complements the adjacent University Place I residence hall that opened on campus in 2002. It features four-bedroom suites with private bathrooms, a shared kitchen and living room, washer and dryer, balcony and Wi-Fi connectivity. The new complex also provides expanded space for student activities, including an outdoor amphitheater and a multipurpose room for hosting events.
University Place II was financed by the Kennesaw State University Foundation through bonds issued by the Development Authority of Cobb County. Construction on the six-acre site began last October and was completed on schedule this month.
The project was designed by HADP Architecture, developed by University Housing Services, Inc., and built by Hardin Construction.
With this latest housing addition, Kennesaw State Residence Life now offers five on-campus residential communities.
