Project Description:

This new five-story, suite-style, 340-bed residence hall is the first of its kind on campus, and was designed to attract prospective students and help retain upper-level and graduate students living on campus. The apartment-style housing provides more options, including two- and four-bedroom suites, shared living rooms, kitchenettes, private bathrooms, and storage space in each suite. The new hall is located in the heart of the campus on the former site of Breese, Nelson, and Clemans halls.

The building features eco-friendly elements, including a green roof, trash enclosure, geothermal ground-source heat pumps for heating and cooling, heat recovery from the Residence Life data center, geothermal hot water production, and specialized bicycle storage. The limestone facade salvaged from the Clemans Hall demolition was recycled for the outdoor seating area and the fireplace surround inside.
