Just north of Lincoln Hall, the 1,000-bed residence provides shelter for a large student body. This new site has two residential buildings where students can live in groups of 12.
Some of the new features allow the students to engage and feel comfortable in their new environment. It offers enhanced privacy (single bedrooms); semi-private bathrooms that will be shared with one other student; a kitchenette; and a spacious commons area!
The community center is located in between both housing buildings where students can eat, work out, play video games and study.
