Project Description

The Fred Brown Residence Hall is the first new residence hall in nearly 40 years. It is a 250,000-square-foot structure designed to house 700 students and will include 242 two-person deluxe suites and 44 four-person deluxe suites. The layout of the student living quarters includes two types of living units designed into a pod arrangement with four pods per floor. Each pod has its own individual identity by use of space, color, texture and lighting, forming four distinct living communities which accommodate 31 students each.

The hall will also include an art gallery, two eateries, a full catering kitchen, a laundry room and an in-house post office. In addition, the facility will house a recreation room, workout facility, and multi-purpose meeting room. Each floor will feature an internet lounge, conference room, and living area.
