Millennium Hall: Living the Sophomore Experience
Designed by renowned Erdy McHenry Architecture in association with ARUP, this $42 million, 110,000 square-foot building will open in September 2009 and become home to the “Sophomore Experience.”
Millennium Hall will provide sophomores with a unique opportunity to live with other sophomore students who are going through the same set of second-year challenges, take part in sophomore-focused events, benefit from professional development programs, and participate in the first annual Sophomore Spring Ball.
Located on 34th Street between Kelly Hall and Ross Commons, Millennium Hall will house 482 students in a modified-suite layout. This new concept in campus living is a hybrid of traditional residence hall living and suite-style community living. In modified suite housing, students will live two per room, but will enjoy the privacy of individual shower rooms and toilets.
This residence hall is guaranteed to be the focal point of the campus’ residential quadrant with its skyline views of the city and will incorporate many environmentally sustainable design features, including a 3,000 square-foot green roof to reduce storm-water run-off and heat-island effect and a rain screen panel system envelop to provide solar shading.
