The new residence hall, Wayback, 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. Wayback will house upper-class students beginning in August 2019.
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.
