The fast‐tracked project provides 2,000+ new beds for first year and sophomore students on Cornell’s residential North Campus. Phase 1: construction of two dormitory buildings offering 800+ beds and a centrally located, attached dining hall. Phase 2: construction of three residence halls with 1,200+ beds. Both sites are composed of three to five story courtyard buildings that are sited and arranged to engage and respond to the adjacent campus, as well as enhance the student life experience. Students can collaborate and socialize in numerous lounges, meeting spaces, classrooms and kitchens found throughout all five buildings. The buildings also include Residence Hall Director and Faculty in Residence suites. Students can enjoy the 5,000 SF fitness center and cool off with a smoothie at the café’.
