Located in the southwest corner of UNH’s main campus near Celentano Hall (formerly Soundview) and Kayo Field our new 90,000 square-foot residence hall, opening in the fall of 2014, promises to create a dynamic hub of activity on campus. The top three stories of the building will be residential units and 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 brand new technology will be open to everyone.
Living Learning Communities
UNH is already known for its Living Learning Communities, which group students of similar majors and interests together in residence halls. In addition to non-LLC first-year housing, the new residence hall will be home to three of our fifteen LLCs:
A Unique Meal Plan
The new dining facility located on the ground floor of the new residence hall will feature a concept known as Food on Demand. The idea provides a seasonal fixed menu to order from, unlimited salad, dessert and beverage and a great new space to connect with your friends and the community. Guests order digitally from a touch-screen kiosk. Each dish is then individually prepared, and the customer is buzzed via smart phone or pager when the meal is ready. Choices might include fast casual, BBQ, upscale, all healthy choices, a pub-style operation - the possibilities are as wide as your imagination.
It's all about the Pod
The pod-style residential space gives students more space to gather and socialize, the pod design’s common lounge area is an ideal place for faculty members to come in and speak to students directly — cozy, yet out in the open.
Communities or Pods of 16 or more students centered on a common lounge area with entries into double-occupancy rooms all around it.
Students will have the opportunity to live in a full-suite or a semi-suite. Each suite has its’ own restroom, two bedrooms and a common area for studying or socializing.
