For many young adults, student housing is the first place that they call
home independent of their family. Whether we’re working with the
school directly or for a private developer, WEAVERCOOKE specializes
in creating housing that is focused on the diverse needs of students.
On-campus housing is arranged with a focus on community and is
often mandatory for younger students. Suites with up to eight private
bedroom-bath combinations and elaborate study rooms that
encourage collaboration and a sense of community are commonplace.
Housing for seniors, graduate students, or even faculty is designed
with privacy and amenities as central factors. These student housing
construction projects can resemble market rate apartments and may
include high-end finishes normally not found in student housing.
There are also public-private partnerships popping up all across the
country where universities are teaming up with private developers
who design, construct and in some cases manage large projects on
behalf of the institutions. As a student housing constractor,
WEAVERCOOKE can help these designers to reflect the school’s
culture and branding.
WEAVERCOOKE has constructed hundreds of student housing units in all
types of configurations: both on-campus and off-campus for universities and
One recent WEAVERCOOKE project incorporated 4BR/4.5BA townhouses
into the unit mix with the express purpose of attracting graduate students.
The project was so successful that the private developer sold the project to
the university before the end of its first year of occupancy.
WEAVERCOOKE’s experience in this market—whether the client is a private,
for-profit developer or a university housing foundation—means the units will
be available for occupancy well before students are scheduled to arrive.
With student housing construction, you only get one chance to be on
schedule and WEAVERCOOKE’s record for on-time delivery is unblemished.

Warren Wilson Village North and South
Student Housing Construction in Asheville, NC
The residence halls encompass a total of 30,409 square feet. The first building is 3-
stories with 44 student beds and a two-bedroom building manager apartment. The
second building is 2-stories and provides housing for 36 students. Both residence halls
are wood-framed structures with siding and stone veneer exterior. Throughout the
project, every effort was made to minimize environmental impact. Large oak trees and
other trees of value were protected and undisturbed. Virtually all the trees removed
from the site were chipped to provide mulch for walking paths on campus. Village North
and Village South have both been awarded a LEED Gold certification.
