The main element of this project is a five-story, 57,270 SF residence hall for first-year students. The 208-bed facility offers modern amenities in a configuration that fosters intimate, secure, close-knit communities, creates a strong sense of place, and accommodates growing numbers of students.
In addition to student rooms, study rooms, and lounges, the entry level floors are oriented to illuminate and animate gathering places housing a variety of program spaces for teaching, meeting, and recreation. Two faculty apartments are also housed in the new building.
The project also included a 9,130 SF, two-story wing featuring modern and efficient office space to accommodate the Housing & Residence Life Office.
This project is LEED Gold certified.
