THE VILLAGE

The Village

THE VILLAGE

In 2011, Young Harris College opened The Village, an apartment-style housing community for upperclassmen. The furnished apartments in The Village are constructed on a rolling terrain with views of the surrounding mountains and campus athletic facilities.

Configured in apartments of four private bedrooms, the complex currently features 148 beds. In fall 2012, another 100 beds in the same configuration will be opened. In addition to four private bedrooms, each apartment includes a living area, kitchen and washer and dryer. The "village" atmosphere is facilitated by expansive porches, designated areas for grilling and abundant green space surrounding the apartments.

The Village is designed and constructed to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards and is expected to earn LEED certification. It is the third new construction project to be completed as part of Young Harris College's strategic plan to make the transformation to four-year status and will be the third to earn LEED certification.

The Towers

THE TOWERS

In Fall 2013, Young Harris College opened The Towers, a unique housing community for first-year students. Centered near the heart of campus, this facility is made up of three separate buildings connected through a shared central building.

The Towers are configured in “pods,” or small communities consisting of students living in different sizes and styles of rooms surrounding a country-club-style bath area. The innovative pod concept is a growing trend in residence life nationwide. It provides both living and learning spaces that encourage student interaction and foster a sense of community during formative semesters on campus. Each pod features large and inviting study alcoves and lounges with comfortable sofas and 55" flat-screen televisions, providing students with ample common areas to study and socialize. These spaces within the building give resident assistants the opportunity to regularly interact with students and introduce unique programming. Other ammenities include cable television access, wireless internet access, ample closet space and a laundry facility on each floor. 

The Towers are designed and constructed to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards and are expected to earn LEED certification. This facility was the fourth construction project to be completed as part of Young Harris College's strategic plan to make the transformation to four-year status and will be the fourth to earn LEED certification.
