The University of Georgia began construction on its first new residence hall since building Rutherford Hall in 2013. Located on the corner of Baxter Street and Cloverhurst Avenue, Building 2264 will house 525 first-year students in double-occupancy rooms beginning in fall 2022.
Construction on the $50 million project began in December 2020 and will conclude in July 2022. The building encompasses approximately 120,500 square feet of space with an exterior courtyard.
According to UGA’s Housing site:
“Residents will enjoy in-room temperature control and privacy-enhanced community bathrooms, as well as extensive shared lounge and study areas to support academic success and personal growth. In addition, the new building means University Housing can offer more ADA spaces than ever before, as well as much-needed green space in the heart of UGA’s first-year communities.”
