The new residence halls will feature over 600 beds, with a multi-use landscaped courtyard for outdoor recreational activities and socializing. Steinberg Hart, one of the nation’s premier architectural firms with a portfolio that includes facilities at Stanford, UCLA, and USC, has been retained for the project.

Construction commences in May 2019, with the residence halls opening for the Fall 2020 semester.

Starting April 2nd, Hannon Field will be fenced off to serve as a construction staging area, and will no longer be open to regular operations. The field will serve as the primary lay-down yard for contractors and workers, and will remain closed for the duration of the project (until Fall 2020).

Beginning mid-May, a construction barrier will be erected around Huesman and Sullivan Halls, designed to reduce audible noise and prepare for the June 2019 demolition.

Campus parking lots are scheduled to remain open for the duration of the project, although there may be temporary closures as construction progresses. The campus community will be advised in advance of upcoming closures, whenever possible.
