Carter Wraps Historical Student-Housing Project at UL Lafayette

In January 2011, we announced that Carter was selected as program manager for a $100-million student-housing project at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette- one of the largest in the school’s history.

Only eight months after Phase II began, we’re pleased to announce that the two-phase project is complete. University students now have access to four new residence halls, two renovated halls, and 850 additional parking spaces. The new additions added approximately 1,800 new beds and 460,000 square feet of newly constructed space to the university’s 2,000-bed inventory.

The last time the university built on-campus dorms was in 1968.

The entire construction of phase I and II included the demolition of five residence facilities, construction of four new residence halls along with the renovation of two existing residence halls and a historic residence hall, and the construction of a new parking structure.

The new construction has transformed UL Lafayette’s housing capability, offering students a more residential component to on-campus living.

The university worked closely with Carter, as well as architecture firm Niles Bolton Associates, Juneau Construction Company and Ambling University Development Group to create neighborhood-style living spaces. Community kitchens, on-site washers and dryers, and game rooms are a few of the amenities available for residents.
