Office Retail Tower 2Walbridge Construction is building the largest student and family housing project in Michigan State University’s history. 

By Russ Gager

The trend of encouraging students to remain in student housing is a trend sweeping the campuses of North America. But to achieve this goal, a university must provide attractive alternatives to off-campus housing. This is the goal of 300 units of new student and family housing being built in 10 buildings on the campus of Michigan State University (MSU) in East Lansing, Mich., that will expand student housing by nearly 1,000 beds.

The $156 million project includes a mixed-use, five-story office building that will also house studio units and retail, and nine other three- and four-story, stick-built residential buildings with apartments to be rented by students. One building will be dedicated solely to the needs of students with families.
