Dover, Del. — University Housing Solutions (UHS) is developing a student-focused residential campus on 30 acres of land it owns adjacent to Delaware State University (DSU) in Dover.
During its discussions regarding a potential public-private partnership development with DSU, UHS learned of an immediate, urgent need for student housing. To meet this demand, UHS will build a 500-bed student housing project with the ability to add an additional 1,500 beds. The UHS project will include a food court and retail space. UHS will address the current student housing shortage through an expedited approval, design and construction effort, and will have sufficient remaining land to provide for future student housing needs within a master-planned, student-oriented residential campus. Martin Kimmel, principal of Kimmel Bogrette Architecture + Site, is leading the effort for UHS. Other members of the UHS project team include Skanska USA (construction) and Asset Campus Housing (management, maintenance, and operations).
