The College of William and Mary
85,000 square feet
The College of William and Mary is the birthplace of the American college fraternity. The Phi Beta Kappa Society, founded on December 5, 1776, was the first collegiate fraternal organization in the United States of America. The College celebrates its long tradition of supporting campus fraternal organizations with a new Fraternity Housing complex. Eleven new brick homes with three different floor plans are appropriately scaled to the size of each chapter. Each house has unique exterior façade features and warm and cozy interiors that allow residents to reflect the individual character of their group. A new community center offers space for students to gather and hold events.
The complex is designed to be environmentally sensitive and save energy costs. All of the houses are designed to LEED® certification standards. Three representative houses are registered with the USGBC under LEED for Homes, and the Community Center is registered under LEED for New Construction. View a video of the new complex here.
