NSU New Residential Complex
More than a project, it’s an impact on Norfolk State University’s campus community.
S.B. Ballard Construction Company, Commonwealth Architects and Niles Bolton Associates teamed to design and construct the New Residential Facility at Norfolk State University. Norfolk State University has warmly embraced the new addition to its campus. From beginning to end, all disciplines were in constant communication aided by regularly scheduled meetings and technology. The entire team is proud of the New Residential Facility for its impact on the campus community and for its record-setting schedule.
The four-story facility features a North and South Hall with a central two-story amenity space and includes 193,424 square feet and 740 beds for students. The Initial phase, consisting of four student housing wings and the central amenity space, is now complete, and students moved in to occupy the residential units at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year. The final phase, which is the east wing of student housing was completed in December 2019 while anticipating occupancy by January 2020. The new student housing project will have a considerable impact on the campus culture, bringing more students into on-campus housing and stimulating the student community with modern amenities and comforts.
