Campus Village construction beginning; parking lots closed

Lots FS8 and S7 permanently closed due to construction

As the spring semester begins, University of South Carolina community members will see the start of the biggest building project in school history as the first stage of the Campus Village project begins on the Whaley Street site.

With the project set to begin soon, the FS8 and S7 parking lots across from Stone Stadium, near the corner of Whaley and Pickens Streets, have been permanently closed.

Campus community members who previously used these lots are encouraged to use three "any decal" lots in the area:

  • AD6 behind Bates and Bates West
  • AD9 behind Benson 
  • AD11 behind the old Roost dorm

The first stage of the Campus Village project consists of four residential buildings accommodating 1,800 students at the cost of an estimated $210 million. South Carolina-based Greystar will build and maintain the new buildings under a contract with the university. Also included in the first stage are a new dining hall, shuttle stop and campus safety office as well as academic support space, a sundry store and a coffee shop.
