The Oaks consists of two new four story residence halls with community kitchens, laundries, and meeting spaces throughout. There is a beautiful glass walled overlook study where students can enjoy reading. There are single room and double room suites, enough for 473 students. Each suite contains a bathroom/shower, desks, wardrobes, and one or two twin beds. Two existing housing buildings and an art annex facility were razed to make room for the Oaks on a parcel of land at the highly visible east entrance to the UWG campus. The exterior makes a visual statement about progress at the university, and is a source of pride for the entire campus. RA-Lin performed all demolition, site preparation, and construction on this sloping site using sustainable practices in only one year. The project was delivered under a construction manager at risk contract. This facility is located on the University of West Georgia campus.
