Kennesaw State University Foundation Selects Piedmont Construction to Build New Student Housing

On Friday, January 22, 2021, Piedmont Construction Group joined Kennesaw State University, along with Collins Cooper Carusi Architects, Hendessi & Associates, the University System of Georgia, and Comprehensive Program Services (CPS) to break ground on Kennesaw State's new residence hall.

The 508-bed, 109,388-square-foot building will provide another housing option for Kennesaw State’s growing student population as well as promote connections among the campus community, particularly for first-year students. Scheduled to open for the Fall 2022 semester, the new residence hall will be built on the south end of the Kennesaw Campus adjacent to the existing Austin Residence Complex.
