New Residence Hall—$15 million
The new residence hall addresses three issues:
It provides today’s student body (2,200)
with sufficient space; it offers students a greater
variety of attractive living and common spaces; and
it creates “swing space” so that over
the next two decades, we will be able to do more extensive
renovations of existing residence halls than we are currently
able to do during the summer months.
Designed by the S/L/A/M
Collaborative of Glastonbury, Connecticut, the advanced "green" building includes a high recycled content, rapidly renewable natural materials, and a solar-heated hot water system. It is also 45 percent more energy-efficient than required under an already stringent Massachusetts building code.
The residence hall houses 180 students, and is comprised of 15 suites, 65 singles, and 27 doubles, arranged in six clusters of approximately 30 students, each with its own common space.
