Georgia State University and Partners Break Ground For New Student Housing
ATLANTA–Georgia State University, the University System of Georgia and Corvias Campus Living broke ground Thursday, May 14 for a new student housing and dining hall complex, expected to be ready for students in fall 2016.

The new complex will be at the intersection of Piedmont Avenue and John Wesley Dobbs Avenue and will house about 1,100 students. It will also include a dining hall.

It is the first student housing facility in the University System of Georgia to be built and operated under a new public-private partnership between the system and Corvias Campus Living, authorized through a state constitutional amendment that Georgia voters approved in 2014.

This project’s hugely important to Georgia State because the opportunity for students to live on campus really provides for a richer, more supportive academic environment. We will get to what has been a long-term goal for Georgia State, which is to have on-campus housing for more than 20 percent of our undergraduate population.

~ Mark Becker, President of Georgia State

Susan Ridley, associate vice chancellor for fiscal affairs with the University System of Georgia, said the project is an example of how the partnership will be critical in further on-campus housing at campuses across the system.

This is very important for the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia in moving forward with a strong partner that embraces the living-learning community concept for student housing, and we’re looking forward to expanding this across all of the institutions in the system.

The partnership with Corvias allows for a quicker, more efficient way to move forward with student housing projects than previously possible.

Though we broke ground on a new building today, the benefits of our partnership will extend for generations of students to come.

~ Geoff Eisenacher, Vice President of Partnership Development at Corvias Campus Living

The University System of Georgia and Georgia State are taking a fresh approach to student housing that includes short-term solutions, like this new residence hall, but also investing in the long-term prosperity of its assets through a partnership model that ensures no facility falls into disrepair.
