Appalachian State University
Boone, North Carolina


A multi-phase undertaking, Village at the Rock is the largest capital project in Appalachian State history. To create an interconnected, on-campus community, NBA is replacing seven residence halls with five efficient, contemporary buildings that can support the needs of faculty, staff and students for years to come. When completed, the $191 million-project—made possible through a public-private partnership known as a P3—will add 300 to 400 more beds to the university’s campus housing. The P3 agreement saves Appalachian approximately $73 million over developing the property on its own. Phase one includes two residence halls on what is now a stadium parking lot, totaling approximately 900 beds.
