This all new residence hall has been designed in the Addison Mizner tradition of Spanish Mediterranean architecture, which has come to define our beautiful campus. When complete, this 58-bed facility will provide a living/learning community for undergraduate students with a combination of single and double rooms. All rooms will be configured in a semi-suite fashion where two rooms surround a common/shared bathroom within the suite. This new facility will incorporate the latest in sustainable design, and be completely accessible to the disabled in our community. In addition to housing for undergraduate students, it will incorporate one apartment intended to accommodate a residential life professional staff member. This facility will build on the tradition of "residential scale housing" which creates facilities on a smaller scale, creating a community of inclusion and involvement. When completed, Strong Hall Phase II, in conjunction with the two buildings of Strong Hall Phase I, will together create an interior courtyard reminiscent of the original Strong Hall. The new Strong Quad, the combination of Phase I and II, will house approximately 100 students on the same site that the original Strong Hall housed 30 students. Completion is anticipated early Summer 2014, at a total project cost of $4.1 million.
