About Our New Residence Hall
If you've been to the UNH campus lately, you've undoubtedly seen the large construction zone that is being transformed into our newest residence hall.
This new residence hall promises to create a dynamic hub of activity on campus. Although the top three stories of the building are residential units, the ground floor provides amenities to the University at large as well. A 250-280 seat dining room, common lounge spaces, office space for UNH personnel, and 2,300 square feet of classroom space with state-of-the-art technology will be open to everyone.
An impressive 90,000 square feet, the facility will sit at the southwest corner of UNH's main campus near Celentano Residence Hall (formerly Soundview) and Kayo Field and is expected to be move-in ready for the fall of 2014. Click here to read more about our newest residence hall.
Update - February, 2014from Louis Annino, Associate V.P. for Facilities
It is exciting to report that we have now "topped off" the north wing of the University's new residence hall and we continue, on almost a daily basis, with precast concrete placement for the south/east wing. While "Old Man Winter" has served up a stretch of challenging weather, our dedicated construction teams continue to make progress towards completion of this building on schedule.
We can easily see the progress on the exterior. However, what is not apparent is the amount of work now completed on the building interior. The "Think Great" leadership of our construction management team, Consigli Construction, has carefully coordinated the finish trades to work simultaneously with the structural construction.
While concrete continues to move on the South/East wing, a small army of plumbers, electricians, carpenters, welders, and many other trades have mobilized constructing walls, placing ventilation ductwork, hanging pipe, and running electric wiring. There remains much to do, but it is exciting to see the interior starting to show signs of student suites, common rooms, service spaces and parking.
