Trevecca unveils new seven-story residence hall
With the recent completion of a seven-story residential facility known as University Commons, nearly 300 students will enjoy spacious new living quarters and amenities on Trevecca’s campus this fall.
The split-level building is visible from the downtown area and includes a rooftop terrace with a unique 360-degree perspective of the iconic Nashville skyline. Other features include a convenience store; apartment-style rooms with full kitchens and lounges; a fitness room and fitness studio; gaming and multipurpose rooms; a central laundry that allows students to manage laundry via an app; and a scenic, tiered outdoor courtyard.
“We are so excited to open University Commons. This will be the culmination of the university’s recent efforts to enhance where students eat, sleep, play and study,” said Jessica Dykes, vice president and dean of student development. “We believe University Commons will positively impact the lives of our students and deeply enrich our campus community for years to come.”
The facility marks the third major building project Trevecca has completed recently, following a new health-sciences building to expand the school of STEM and a full interior renovation of the Jernigan Student Center in the center of campus. With the addition of the $40 million residence hall, Trevecca has invested more than $73 million in campus expansion and improvements over the past few years.
Construction on the residence hall began in November 2021, and the building will be occupied for the first time as Trevecca begins the 2023-2024 academic year.
