Greek Fraternity Housing Complex
College of William and Mary

College of William and Mary
Williamsburg, Virginia

Begun as a site feasibility study, the project increased on-campus undergraduate residence hall capacity by creating a Greek village with 11 separate 17-bed fraternity houses and a 9,000-square-foot community building.

The village is composed of houses based on three model floor plans, with the design of each house varying slightly to reflect the unique character of its resident fraternity. All three floor plans offer one- and two-bedroom layouts and shared spaces including community baths, kitchen and dining areas, laundry facilities, and chapter rooms that function as the family rooms of the houses.

The community building earned Silver certification under LEED for new construction in 2009. A house based on each of the three models earned Gold certification under LEED for Homes. As a result, the project earned a total of four LEED certifications.
