Construction Begins on KWK/Jenkins • Peer Designed Residence Hall at Fayetteville State

June 12, 2024|


Fayetteville, N.C. – Construction is underway on a $40 million residence hall at Fayetteville State University in Fayetteville, N.C. Designed by the KWK/Jenkins • Peer Architects team, the new hall will accommodate 383 freshmen and sophomore students when complete.

Fayetteville State University is a constituent institution of The University of North Carolina and the second-oldest public institution of higher education in the state, founded in 1867. FSU is a historically black university offering degrees at the baccalaureate, master’s and doctoral levels. With more than 6,500 students, Fayetteville State University is among the most diverse institutions in the nation.

The university’s new four-story hall is under construction on the former site of Vance Hall on its East Campus. The 78,093-square-foot building will include single and double bedrooms, each with a dedicated bathroom. Study rooms are designed at each end of the building’s wings with the hall’s entrance and staircase prominently featured in the center of the building.

To increase the hall’s sense of community, architects designed a large, central lounge with extended glass looking out on the campus, plus a glass surround staircase to complement newer, adjacent halls McLeod and Renaissance in the East Campus residential district.

The new hall is expected to be completed in fall 2025. The construction manager at risk on the project is Metco.
