Morgantown, W.Va. — American Campus Communities has broken ground on U Club Sunnyside, a 536-bed student community located in Morgantown near West Virginia University.
The property is situated on the site of the former Sunnyside Commons, which ACC purchased in 2008 and has been demolished. Pre-leasing for the community will begin in September.
U Club Sunnyside is ACC’s 100th student housing development; its first, at Prairie View A&M University in Prairie View, Texas, was built in 1996.
U Club Sunnyside will be located within walking distance to campus, the Mountainlair Student Union and retail options. The community features a nearly 8,500-square-foot community center with an academic success center and private study rooms, large social lounge, and fitness center. The community center’s outdoor amenity area will include a pool with spa and recreation area.
