Watch the Progress of UNH’s Newest Residence Hall

Several weeks ago, the University broke ground on a $40 million, 377-bed residence hall that will feature a dining room, student lounges and 2,300 square feet of classroom space. The 90,000 square feet will be located at the southwest corner the main campus near Celentano Residence Hall and Kayo Field and is expected to be move-in ready for the fall of 2014.

All of the required site blasting and removal of rock and excavated materials has been completed. The pouring of concrete to create wall and floors is set to begin. In addition to the visible site work, “precast” walls and floors are being constructed offsite and will soon arrive by truck and be placed in location by crane.

The facility will feature communities of 16 students centered on a living-learning space with entries into double-occupancy rooms organized around it. The pod design takes the living-learning community concept to the next level by providing common lounge areas that are an ideal place for faculty members to come in and speak to students directly.

“The University of New Haven has become very popular,” said Jim McCoy, vice president for enrollment management. “We want to make it possible for those students who want to live on campus to do so. This facility is intended to put a lot more of them on campus.” More>>
