New 400-Bed Student Housing Project Completed at Chapman University


Construction has been completed on The K, a 401-bed, 123.6k sf student housing project for Chapman University in the city of Orange. The development was bult by R.D. Olson Construction.

Designed to reflect the historic charm of Old Towne Orange, the four-story structure will help accommodate Chapman University’s rapid growth and will be occupied for the fall semester. The 110-room, horseshoe shaped building is comprised of one- and two-bedroom suites as well as studios.

Units feature a kitchen and either one or two bathrooms, and all except the studios include a living room. Open community spaces in the lobby and basement include couches, chairs, high top tables and televisions, and open to an outdoor courtyard. Study rooms are included on floors two, three and four, and each floor is equipped with a laundry facility.

The brick exterior, corrugated metal paneling and exposed structural elements reflect the historic aesthetic of Old Towne Orange – the largest National Registered Historic District in California. Located at the corner of North Cypress Street and West Palm Avenue, The K is situated directly across the street from the school’s tennis center and the Dodge College of Film and Media Arts.

The first new student housing built by the university in more than 10 years, site improvements include new utility feeds, an underground storm water detention basin, retaining and planter walls, asphalt paving and landscaping of the 3.5-acre property. Previously, the site was used for storage and parking.

R.D. Olson Construction worked alongside Togawa Smith Martin, AC Martin, Miyamoto International, Linwood Engineering Associates, DRC Engineering and Bennitt Design Group on the project. Additional R.D. Olson Construction projects for Chapman University include the Hilbert Museum, Reeves Hall, Partridge Dance Center, tenant improvement of the Rinker Health Science Campus and most recently the adaptive reuse of Villa Park Orchard Packing House, which shares a courtyard with The K.
