UHS was recently awarded the contract to design and build a 200-bed mixed use student housing center for Terra Village Holdings near Terra State Community College. The project comes after years of planning, and will feature apartment style student housing in 1, 2, and 4 bedroom configurations. The apartments have been designed to maximize efficiency, allowing students to get a large amount of space while keeping cost down. The building will also feature 4,000 sf of retail, administration offices for Terra Village Holdings and Terra Community College, outdoor activity spaces with seating, games, and an outdoor grill, and common areas paired with independent private study spaces. Terra Village will be unveiled over two phases - Phase 1 is expected to be completed by August 2018.
Residents in the Genoa Township area near Cleary University may have noticed heavier traffic flow recently. That’s because some students have moved into their new apartments on campus, right before the spring semester of classes began. You heard right — students are, and will be, moving on campus at Cleary University. “This is a huge thing for Cleary and the first step to transforming the university to a more traditional one,” said Isaac Miller, a marketing student and Cleary University marketing intern.
The new 86-bed, 21-unit apartment facility at 3730 Cleary Drive is officially complete and ready for occupants. Of the 86 beds available, two are planned to accommodate resident assistants in the L-shaped, 12,787-square-foot building. The three-level building has everything students need. Each floor has a spacious studying and lounge area with tables, couches and TVs. The walls framing each apartment hallway are soundproof so interruptions outside can be kept to a minimum.

Under Murphy’s leadership, UHS, a full-service firm offering construction service and financing options to schools and universities, has built more than 30 residence halls in Michigan, Ohio and four other states. A philanthropist, healthcare trailblazer and entrepreneur, Francis (Frank) Murphy can trace his success to the support of his parish priest and a chance meeting with a successful businessman. Deeply involved in philanthropic work focused on building the human capital of the United States, Murphy is a staunch benefactor of higher education, Catholic charities and job creation. In addition, he has led capital improvement campaigns for hospitals, residence halls, and student centers, and developed an innovative model for providing clients with financial services and construction expertise.
