Student life on campus has been transformed with the opening of the new Kahlert Village residential community. The village—which can house up to 1,000 students—is the single largest building project in U history and is named for lead donor the Kahlert Foundation.
Centrally located near the Student Life Center, the Huntsman Center, and the Fort Douglas TRAX stop, it has three themed towers thanks to the generosity of Heather Kahlert BS’07 (STEM), Gail Miller (Community Engagement), and Patricia W. Child BS’62 (Health & Wellness).
Research shows that one of the strongest predictors for student success is whether a student lives on campus. In fact, spending just a year living on site increases successful degree completion by 12 percent, and this project will boost those odds for many more students.
