Public/Private Student Housing Approved for USC


Columbia’s design board Wednesday approved plans for a public/private partnership with the University of South Carolina for a student housing complex behind the Carolina Coliseum.

The 878-bed complex, considered part of the West Campus Development project in the application for design approval, is part of a student housing boom planned in the Vista to meet the demand of a growing student population at USC.

The $94 million student complex still requires approval at the state level.

Separate from the student development partnership with Holder Properties, other planned complexes include:

  • An Edwards Communities development with 700 beds flanking the Palmetto Compress warehouse
  • A 120-bed complex also near the warehouse called Pulaski Square
  • An 800-bed complex at the corner of Blossom and Huger streets on property owned by Ben Arnold
