Lot 15 Residence Hall


The proposed project would supply a total of 1,781 beds for undergraduate students in the Northwest campus. The students would be housed in a new 343,600 gsf residence hall complex comprising two 8-level mid-rise buildings. A total of 311,700 gsf of residential space and 31,900 gsf of commons space would be provided.

The project would be built on Lot 15, a 3.1acre site occupied by Housing Maintenance and Facilities Management support functions to the west of De Neve Drive between the Saxon and Hitch Residential Suites. Two obsolete structures, the 7,200 gsf Ornamental Horticultural Building M (warehouse) and the 4,800 gsf Ornamental Horticultural Building J (greenhouse), would be demolished to accommodate the new construction. Vehicular access to the redeveloped site would be via the existing campus service roadway from De Neve Drive.

The 1,781 beds would be accommodated in combination of 1,750 income producing triple-occupancy rooms, and 31 non-income producing rooms for resident assistants and assistant resident directors responsible for implementing programs and events, and other aspects of residential life. Typical rooms would comprise 228 asf each. Student rooms would be organized into wings along double-loaded corridors, near community bathrooms, lounges, trash/recycling collections, custodial, and network rooms. Bathrooms would be compartmentalized with private water closets and shower/dressing areas. Residential support space would include mail, laundry, and housekeeping rooms centrally located within the complex. Each residential building would have a loading dock for receiving and trash services.

The new complex would be organized around outdoor spaces with a pedestrian bridge to the existing undergraduate housing, dining, and study facilities across De Neve Drive to the east. Common space, located centrally on the lower levels near the points of entry, would include individual and group study space, maker space, and a vending facility open to all Northwest Campus residents, and a residential life office and apartments for faculty and resident directors to stimulate student faculty interaction, implement programs and events, and support the well-being of students outside the classroom. Replacement housing maintenance parts and material storage functions serving the campus would be housed in a partial subterranean level with a dedicated loading dock.

Apartments for faculty-in-residence and resident directors would include two 2-bedroom units ranging between 950 asf and 980 asf each with two bathrooms, a living room, dining area and kitchen. Two 1-bedroom units with one bathroom ranging between 680 and 700 asf each would also be provided. Appliances would include a stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave oven, and washer/dryer.
