The Wright House Open House
Get a sneak peek at The Wright House, the new Episcopal Center at The University of Georgia, during its Open House on June 11 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The 123-bedroom facility, which features a bathroom for each bedroom, includes onsite parking, bike storage, a fitness facility, study spaces, and an indoor common kitchen and coffee bar. It will also have extensive outdoor common areas adjacent to the building and on the green roof deck.
The June 11 open house is the only open-to-the-public event planned for The Wright House which will be occupied by students prior to the fall semester.
The new building is named in honor of The Rt. Rev. Robert C. Wright, Episcopal Bishop of Atlanta, for his steadfast support for children, youth, and college ministries. It sits on the site of the former Episcopal Center and chapel in the heart of The University of Georgia campus at the corner of University Court and South Lumpkin Street.
Beyond its amenities, The Wright House has features not found in traditional student living. “Our live, study, pray concept is new and allows all students to live more intentionally toward their life goals and calling” said project manager, The Rev. Canon Lang Lowrey.
The Wright House is open to all UGA students but is designed to appeal to Episcopalian students who want to live near the resources of the new Episcopal Center as part of their UGA experience.
The Episcopal Center and chapel on the main level will serve as a multi-use facility for all residents of the Wright House. An Episcopal chaplain will live on site and be available to all residents.
