The University of Evansville has held a groundbreaking for an $8.5 million on-campus housing project. The townhouse apartments will provide space for approximately 150 students. The effort is part of the school's facilities master plan.

The University of Evansville today held a groundbreaking ceremony for new townhouse apartments, which will provide attractive on-campus housing options for approximately 150 upperclassmen.

The kickoff for the $8.5 million project took place at a 10:30 a.m. news conference in the Class of 1959 Gallery and Lounge in the Ridgway University Center.

“We’re thrilled to break ground on this project, which represents the next phase of the University of Evansville’s facilities master plan,” said UE President Thomas A. Kazee. “We look forward to offering our students a sophisticated, convenient living experience while enhancing the neighborhood around our campus.”

Two townhouse buildings will comprise the “Frederick Commons” (between Frederick Street and Weinbach Avenue) and four buildings will make up the “Walnut Commons” (on the north side of Walnut Avenue and Rotherwood Avenue). Half of the townhouses will be complete and available for move-in in August 2013, with others following in October 2013 and January 2014.

The new townhouses are part of UE’s facilities master plan, announced in March 2012, which will guide the University’s building projects and renovations over the next decade. After an assessment of needs, which included interview and focus group sessions with UE students, faculty, staff, administrators, and alumni, student housing emerged as one of four priority areas.

Each two-story townhouse apartment will house four students and includes the following amenities:

• Four private bedrooms and two bathrooms
• New furniture and appliances (including washer and dryer, dishwasher, full-
size refrigerator, and sink disposal)
• Granite countertops
• 37” digital flat screen TV in living room
• Ethernet in living room
• Free WiFi and digital cable
• All utilities included
Students signed up to live in townhouses during the housing application process in February and March. All townhouses have been filled for the 2013-14 academic year.
UE has contracted with Buckingham Companies, an Indianapolis-based developer, to coordinate the construction and design phases of the project.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the University of Evansville’s team in its efforts to provide an enhanced environment for learning, living, and community,” said Brad Chambers, president and CEO of Buckingham Companies. “Our focus for this project is to assist the University of Evansville in fulfillment of its current and long-term vision for campus growth and innovation and to make the University of Evansville a first-choice educational option."
Participants in today’s groundbreaking ceremony included UE’s Larry Kremer, chairman of the Board of Trustees; Thomas A. Kazee, president; Jeff Wolf, vice president for fiscal affairs and administration; Dana Clayton, vice president for student affairs and dean of students; Tyler Best, president of the Resident Students Association and a religion and political science major from Elizabeth, Indiana; Melanie Bacaling, member of the Student Housing Committee and a music performance and psychology major from Gurnee, Illinois; Brad Chambers, president and CEO of Buckingham Companies; and Jeff Beidl, development manager with Buckingham Companies.
