Breaking Ground on New Student Housing
Following on the heels of welcoming more than 1,100 students to its Emory, Virginia, campus this fall, Emory & Henry College broke ground in mid- August on its newest apartment-style living complex, adding 96 new beds to its inventory in the fall of 2023. Members of the E&H Board of Trustees approved the building plans and made the announcement in January 2022.
The apartment-style building is being constructed on the northwest side of College Drive across from the College’s Lynch Links golf course on a 10-acre property owned by the College. The main access to the complex will be from Hillman Highway, just one mile from campus. Adding modern apartments will complement the current apartment-style living in Emory and will offer a more independent-living lifestyle to students.
The apartment building will be three stories and house 96 beds in 18 apartments. The new apartments, which will include two handicap-accessible units, will each be 1,200-square-feet and feature two bedrooms, two baths, walk-in closets, an open kitchen plan with modern appliances, dining and living space, a pantry, a laundry space and a private balcony or patio. Ample parking will be included in the project.
