This week, construction will commence on a new, four-story men’s residence hall located west of Ryan Hall on the southwest portion of campus. Built to attain LEED silver certification, the 78,000 square-foot residence hall will be home to approximately 250 undergraduate men. The hall is expected to be ready for occupancy in August 2019, and will be named in the coming months.
Community space will be a prominent feature of the new residence hall. With nearly 40 percent of the first floor devoted to community space, residents will enjoy a two-story lounge, a reading room, study rooms, a community kitchen, and other gathering spaces.
A core element of the residence hall will be a chapel designed with a clean, gothic architectural style utilizing wood detailing. In the lower level, residents will share space for laundry, vending, storage, exercise rooms, and food sales.
