Four new buildings doubled housing capacity for this West Virginia institution.
Philippi, West Virginia Alderson Broaddus University constructed nearly 400 beds at once. The Collaborative Inc designed four new facilities, more than doubling the University’s total number of residence halls. Undertaking a large volume of construction at one time meant the University benefited from lower costs.
The new facilities include two apartment buildings, each 24,100 SF and 71 beds. Two suite-style buildings, 19,000 SF and 26,800 SF, house 96 and 143 beds, respectively.
As part of a broad recruitment and retention program, the University launched a series of new athletic teams in the last two years. As these programs expand, the campus responded with additional housing options.
