Normal, Ill. — Illinois State University has opened Cardinal Court, a 900-bed on-campus apartment community plus a community center.
The public-private housing initiative is the first such partnership for the university. Weis Builders was the general contractor for the project, which included a hands-on student internship program. Four students worked side-by-side with Weis Builders associates.
Additionally, ISU’s College of Applied Science and Technology incorporated Cardinal Court into classroom curriculum through periodic site tours. Solomon Cordwell Buenz was the architect.
