Residence Halls

Working within the University Master Plan developed by our firm, this 126-bed residence hall creates a strong pedestrian path connecting the uphill and downhill campus. The four-story building includes four-bedroom and six-bedroom apartments as well as a small student theatre/performance space. Through integrating a range of solar technologies in the design, the project highlights the university's commitment to sustainable issues.
