Shenandoah University’s newest residential community, The Village Apartments, opened in Fall of 2016. Nestled behind Goodson Chapel and Aikens Athletic Center, this non-traditional residence hall offers apartment-style, communal living for upperclassmen of Shenandoah University.
Caruthers House opened for students in August 2016. The first building in the Village Apartments is named in honor of Preston C. Caruthers and the late Jeanne Caruthers for their longtime support and commitment to the students of Shenandoah University.
Roni’s Roost opened for students in October 2016. Roni’s Roost is named for Roni Flett Wilkins who was born in Dublin, Ireland. Roni’s husband, James R. Wilkins, Jr., has served on the Board of Trustees since 1990, and her father-in-law, James R. Wilkins, Sr., was a founder of the modern-day SU.
Upon completion of all five buildings, the residential complex will house 120 students.
Each apartment houses four residents. The newly constructed apartments feature two bathrooms, four bedrooms, a full kitchen, and a roomy living area. All apartments are fully furnished, including washing machine, dryer, and modern kitchen appliances. Communal porch and green space are available for the enjoyment of residents.
