Student Housing
PHILOSOPHY 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 focuses on 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 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. WEAVERCOOKE can help these designers to reflect the school’s culture and branding.
OUR EXPERIENCE WEAVERCOOKE has constructed hundreds of student housing units in all types of configurations: both on-campus and off-campus for universities and private developers. 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, you only get one chance to be on schedule and WEAVERCOOKE’s record for on-time delivery is unblemished.

WSSU Foundation Heights & Gleason-Hairston Terrace
WSSU Foundation Heights & Gleason-Hairston Terrace WEAVERCOOKE completed two student housing projects for Winston-Salem State University: Foundation Heights and Gleason-Hairston Terrace. These two projects provided a total of 721 beds for WSSU students. Foundation Heights consisted of two 4-story apartment wings with partial basements. The connector building between the two wings housed the help desk, student lounge, and administrative offices. The building also included a computer lab, laundry facility, study rooms, and a fitness center. Gleason-Hairston Terrace provided 84 double- occupancy bedrooms; 27 two-bedroom suites; and 17 single-occupancy suites. Common areas include a fitness center, student lounge, kitchen, vending area, study areas, computer lab, management offices and a main lobby.
Warren Wilson Village North and South
Warren Wilson Village North and South 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.
