Estimated Completion: August 2016
The 172,000-square-foot building will be on North Street in close proximity to University Tower -- IUPUI’s newest residence hall with a state-of-the-art dining hall -- and will offer 700 beds for students and spaces to support student life activities, fitness programs, a computer lab, game rooms and laundry. The building will also feature a state-of-the-art multipurpose media room and two classrooms that will each accommodate 40 students.
The new residence hall will reflect the sleek, modern style of the IUPUI campus by use of brick, glass and precast accents and offer two residential wings varying in height -- one four stories and the other six stories. This design will allow more natural light into the semi-enclosed courtyard as well as the large windows of each sleeping room.
A centralized tower will connect the wings and house community spaces on the first floor. The tower will be expressed architecturally with extensive glass and roof elements for a dramatic sense of entry and offer a preview of the activities inside.
