Student apartments at QC Campus taking shape

Last updated 7/16/2013

The Villas at Black Hawk College are taking shape!

The three-story, 120-bed student apartment complex is being built with modular construction. The modular units are built off-site then transported to the Quad-Cities Campus on trailers.

The modular units – which range from 12 feet to 16 feet wide and up to 30 feet long – are unwrapped and lifted into place by a crane.

The units already have their doors, windows, counters, cabinets, sinks, showers, toilets and lighting fixtures installed.

The Villas are located in Lot 4 on the north side of 34th Avenue within walking distance of all Quad-Cities Campus buildings. Students will be able to move in Friday, Aug. 16.
