LIFE ON CAMPUS

Welcome to Richardson Hall

Richardson hall will open in Fall 2021 for residency.  The hall is currently under construction along Tech Drive.  This newest phase of student housing will provide housing options for both incoming freshmen and returning students.  With a centrally located floor commons in the knuckle of two wings, residents will enjoy a space to study, share a meal and build a community.  Separate smaller lounges/study rooms will be located on each wing that will be accessible only by the students residing on that wing.  It will have three different room configurations – a suite style option where two students will share a bathroom in their room, a single bedroom option where 6-7 residents will share a community restroom of two showers and two toilets, a flex bedroom option that will give us the flexibility to house one or two students together who will share a bedroom and a community restroom of two showers and two toilets with 7-14 residents.  The suite style option will include a shower only in the bathrooms.

The first floor, south wing of Richardson will be utilized as retail/dining space by our Food Services and provide a convenient option for our residents!  The proximity to the new intramural fields as well as outdoor seating areas will provide opportunities for residents to gather outdoors.
