The new student housing project is four-wing, suite-style residence hall with three wings of living pods with over 500 beds. Each living pod houses a common living space for up to 12 students who live in single- or double-occupancy bedrooms. Amenities on the first floor of the main building include a full-service cafeteria, vending area, equipped kitchen, laundry room, bicycle room and a game room. The Honors Learning Center features three student classrooms and a conference room.
