Construction is underway on Baumer Hall, 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 Fall of 2019.
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.
Another 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.
