The townhouses will accommodate 150 upperclassmen. The $8.5 million project will deliver six townhouse buildings, one cluster of two buildings will be Frederick Commons, and four other buildings will comprise Walnut Commons.

Half of the townhouses will be complete and available for move-in in August 2013, with others following in October 2013 and January 2014.

The new townhouses are part of UE’s facilities master plan, announced in March 2012, which will guide the university’s building projects and renovations over the next decade. After an assessment of needs, which included interview and focus group sessions with UE students, faculty, staff, administrators, and alumni, student housing emerged as one of four priority areas.
