Get a sneak peek inside the Mary and Harold Perper Residence Hall on display in the Elmore Dining Commons now through the end of the academic year.
“We know current and prospective students are looking forward to the new residence halls, and we want to help them visualize what the future of student housing will be like,” says Tom Heffernan, director of construction and sustainability at Lynn. “Many students came out to vote for and select the new dorm’s furniture, so we’re pretty excited to show them what they’ve selected.”
The 3D mock-up of the loft-style apartment depicts the final bedroom and common area furniture students and community members chose during a ballot vote earlier this semester. The outcome was décor that is both modern and space-efficient. Rooms also feature full-size beds, which replace the age-old twin-XL beds found in most dorms.
The residence hall is expected to open fall 2017, and will house approximately 170 upperclassmen. Students will be able to choose from double-occupancy rooms, with four students to a suite, or townhouse-style apartments with five single bedrooms per unit. Each apartment will have a living room, kitchenette and entryway off a secure courtyard. Common areas will include a fire pit, laundries, kitchens and study areas.
Registration will begin in February 2017.
