The days of living within concrete walls among mini fridges and microwaves are over for the upperclassmen living at Lynn University. The new residence hall will provide on-campus juniors and seniors the privilege of living in an apartment-style room.

The Mary and Harold Perper Residence Hall will house 170 students. Rooms will feature a kitchenette, a common area, upgraded furniture and double beds.

The suite-style living will also include private bathrooms, Wi-Fi throughout the building and LED lighting. The new Perper hall allows students to transition from a dorm to an apartment, which appeals to many students like Sam Barber, rising senior.

“The idea of moving into an apartment-style room appealed to me because I believe this will actually prepare me for adulthood when I do graduate next year,” Barber said.

Barber, who will be one of the first resident assistants for the new dorm, will be joined by Rikki Soumpholphakdy and Gracie Goodenough, who will serve as community advisers for the building.

Other students, like Shivani Shinde, are excited about the opportunity to continue to live close to friends and transition out of a traditional dorm room.

“It is a great transition to the outside world where I am going to have to live by myself, but I will also get to enjoy the company of my friends on campus,” said Shinde. “I chose to live here because living on campus is convenient, especially for someone who does not have a car.”

Living in the upperclassmen hall will be most beneficial for students who want to continue to have the convenience of being close to class, friends and the 24/7 dining commons. It will also give students the privilege of having fire pits, hammocks and outdoor patio areas to spend free time.

“I am really excited that I get to live with my best friends throughout my college journey,” said Alex Rogoff, junior. “I wanted my own space while being able to live with friends; it will allow me to have the feel of an apartment while being on campus. It really will be a great place to live in.”

While the new residence hall is still undergoing construction, it is scheduled to make its debut this fall.
