University Housing Solutions was recently awarded the contract to design and build a 312-bed mixed use student housing center for Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio. The building is divided into four different types of programmatic functions: Apartments / Admin / Wellness Center / Secondary Spaces. Both the wellness center and administration occupy the ground floor main wing near the entrance from both campus and the parking. The proposed building massing and organization embodies the design of a complete student housing center. The primary massing stems from four landmark anchors - one at each corner - which serve to bookend the building within the site while serving as landmarks for wayfinding. The project comes after years of planning, and will feature apartment and dorm style student housing in 1, 2, and 4 bedroom configurations. The facility is scheduled to open for the beginning of the 2018 academic school year.

Residents in the Genoa Township area near Cleary University may have noticed heavier traffic flow recently. That’s because some students have moved into their new apartments on campus, right before the spring semester of classes began. You heard right — students are, and will be, moving on campus at Cleary University. “This is a huge thing for Cleary and the first step to transforming the university to a more traditional one,” said Isaac Miller, a marketing student and Cleary University marketing intern.

The new 86-bed, 21-unit apartment facility at 3730 Cleary Drive is officially complete and ready for occupants. Of the 86 beds available, two are planned to accommodate resident assistants in the L-shaped, 12,787-square-foot building. The three-level building has everything students need. Each floor has a spacious studying and lounge area with tables, couches and TVs. The walls framing each apartment hallway are soundproof so interruptions outside can be kept to a minimum.
