The partnership between the University System of Georgia (USG) and Corvias represents a unique approach in student housing as it is the first time a state system has initiated the privatization of student housing through a portfolio of campuses. As a part of the 40 year 9-university partnership, Corvias partnered with GSU to develop, construct, manage, and maintain student housing in the first phase of an unprecedented Public-Private Partnership (P3). Working together with GSU, Corvias designed and built 1,152 beds in a new residence hall, Piedmont Central (Piedmont.) The project is comprised of two-bedroom private and semi-private suites. Piedmont also contains office and storage space, community kitchens, laundry rooms, state-of-the-art social spaces for group activities and collaboration, and a 15,239 square foot (SF) dining hall.
