Students Excited for Fall 2019 Occupancy

With an aggressive schedule and significant progress being made, Phase I is scheduled to be ready for residential students this Fall. Leading up to the housing lottery for the 2019-2020 academic year, students are very excited about the possibility of securing a spot in what has quickly become the most desirable housing option on campus.

Support for Phase II

As construction progresses on the four buildings that make up Phase I, fundraising efforts have begun for Phase II. The Cabell Foundation of Richmond, VA has awarded a challenge grant of $400,000 to support the Phase II construction of the new student apartment village. The grant requires a 3:1 match by May 2020, meaning we need to raise an additional $1.2 M by that time.

Williamson Road Apartments

As the student apartment village will replace the Hollins-owned student apartments that are located across Williamson Road near the main entrance to the Hollins campus, the Williamson Road apartments will close in late July following the conclusion of the university’s graduate programs’ summer term. Hollins is exploring options for re-development of the land where the apartments are located that will support the campus as well as the surrounding community and businesses.
