Brandeis University
Skyline Residence Hall
Waltham, MA

This 164-bed residence hall serves a broad campus planning goal of linking outlying buildings with the heart of campus. A key challenge of sophomore retention on campus provided an opportunity to create an attractive housing type that encourages interaction and community within a broader campus community, while rethinking a traditional double and single bedroom layout. Informal gathering spaces with access to student kitchens meet the needs of many student groups across campus. Through the use of a fully geothermal heating, cooling, and domestic hot water system coupled with a roof top photovoltaic system and a high-performance façade, the building is a highly sustainable living option on campus.
