The three-story, 75-room residence hall connects to the existing Gerig Hall through a glass-enclosed commons. The multi-story commons overlooks outdoor gathering spaces and is used by students in both buildings, enabling communication between floors. The design includes a pond and plaza area that serves as a destination for studying and student recreation. Transparency, community and views have made the new residence hall a favorite student destination, and an important part of the vibrant campus.
