This new living-learning community located near Harrison and Morgan Streets is more than 151,000 square feet. The 10-story building will provide residential accommodations for approximately 550 students in a traditional and semi-suite style environment.
Within the residential component, approximately 16,000 square feet will feature a fitness center, multiple social/gaming lounges, study lounges on each floor, laundry facilities, offices, and a tenth-floor sky lounge. Harrison Hall is targeting LEED Gold certification by the US Green Building Council.
In addition to the residential components, the more than 50,000 square feet of academic space, includes three large lecture halls, four classrooms, several small group study rooms, a tutoring center, computer stations and several collaboration spaces. Among the classrooms, the largest 258-seat classroom can also be transformed into a flexible event and performance space. This space will also include instructional spaces with “turn to team” design elements, a learning oasis, and a C-Stop. The retail space, anticipated to be used as a cafe, will be approximately 1,600 square feet of the project.
This project is entirely financed by a private partner, American Campus Communities and expected to open in fall 2019.
