A groundbreaking ceremony Friday signaled the beginning of a unique collaborative housing project involving The University of Utah, the Clark and Christine Ivory Trust and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that will serve students during an unprecedented housing crunch.
The three institutions are working together to build Ivory University House, a four-building, 552-unit apartment community at the corner of Mario Capecchi Drive and South Campus Drive to add housing for U. students. Rent paid will be donated to provide scholarships, housing stipends and internships for U. students.
The first building is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2023 where a church meetinghouse once stood.
