New Residence Hall
The new residence hall building will hold 300 beds set up in suite-style arrangements. Each suite will include two single rooms, one double room, a common space, and a bathroom.
Designed with comfort in mind, the building will feature a bike room, game room, laundry room, a community kitchen, and plenty of space to study. The entire building will also be key-less, allowing residents to enter the building, their suite and bedrooms by utilizing their ID card.
As with all our new buildings, the residence hall is designed to meet Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification standards. It will include solar panels on the roof, energy-efficient heating and cooling equipment, and will be built with renewable or recycled materials.
We anticipate the ground breaking and construction to begin in late February/early March of 2018.
Our goal is to have the exterior of the building built and capped with a roof between September and November 2018.
Occupancy of the new residence hall should begin in August 2019.
The new residence hall will be built behind Fort Awesome and Outback.

- Air conditioning
- One twin XL bed, desk, desk chair, and wardrobe per resident
- One lamp/light fixture per room
- Cable TV connection
