The new dormitory increases resident student population Delaware State University by more than 30 percent. It accommodates some 330 students. The basic living unit is a suite of three 2-person bedrooms with a common living room, and its own bathroom facilities.

In addition to the suites, each floor of the building’s two wings has its own lounge with kitchenette and laundry room. The building’s first (ground) floor has offices and common rooms. The residence hall’s design and placement creates a new pattern for campus development. It forms, together with existing buildings, outdoor spaces which are carefully landscaped. The building reinforces the development of a pedestrian oriented campus and establishes axes uniting the school and the wooded areas to the west.

Designed on a fast track basis, more than 110,000 square feet of building were completed in 17 months, from start of construction to occupancy.
