Wayback will house upper-class students (sophomores, junior and seniors) beginning in August 2019.
Wayback is one of three (3) residence halls that serve our upper-class residence hall community, housing approximately 300 upper-class residents. Rooms are four-person suites, with two (2) singles, one (1) double, a small shared common area and private bathrooms. The building will have 2 elevators off the main lobby of the building.
Student housing is located on the first, second, third and fourth floors – each floor having a garbage room, and a large study lounge. The first floor will have a bike storage room, large entertainment space, including a gaming area and community kitchenette. The entire building will also be key-less, allowing residents to enter the building, their suite and bedrooms by utilizing their ID card.
Wayback is the newest residence hall, having been completed in the summer of 2019. As with all our new buildings, Wayback is designed to meet Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification standards. It includes solar panels on the roof, energy-efficient heating and cooling equipment, and was built with renewable or recycled materials.
