The undergraduate building, comprised of 412 beds in 145 suite and semi-suite style units, totals 97,665 SF, while the graduate building contains 312 beds in 305 apartment-style units.
Focusing on the complete student experience, the undergraduate building features a large, multi-function “connect” space. Other amenities in both buildings include common kitchens, lounges, laundry, and study areas.
Site construction includes the abatement and demolition of five existing dormitory buildings on the eight acre site. Storm water is funneled into three separate underground detention systems installed across the site. A 301-space asphalt surface parking lot is installed to the south of the dormitories.
Both buildings are Type III wood-frame construction supported by conventional shallow/spread footings and slab-on-grade. The exterior skin of both buildings is comprised primarily of brick masonry with cement panel accents and stucco at the upper floors.
