Academic and Residence Hall
A signature living-learning community will be built near Harrison and Morgan Streets to provide residential accommodations for 500 students, more than 51,000 square feet of academic space (primarily classrooms), and 1,600 square feet of retail dining. The project will be entirely financed by a private partner (American Campus Communities). The complex of buildings will feature:
- Instructional spaces with “turn to team” design elements, learning oases, and a C-Stop.
- Among them, the largest 258-seat classroom can also be transformed into a flexible event and performance space.
- Residential accommodations will include a mix of traditional double rooms, semi-suites, and faculty/staff apartments along with study and social lounges.
This new facility will be located in Parking Lot 9 in order to be close to other residence halls and near the campus core
