Student residence halls are more than places to sleep and store belongings. They accommodate the growing complexity of student life in the twenty-first century, and have an obligation to acknowledge a renewed emphasis on the importance of education outside the classroom.
Newman Architects has provided residential life master planning and architectural design services for 48 residence hall projects on 25 architecturally diverse campuses throughout the US. Our design approach for new residential halls is based on the 'living and learning' model. We believe that integrating academic and social environments enriches and enlivens the experience of both. With every new project we seek to create community environments where students and faculty share activity spaces, thereby providing daily opportunities for intellectual, creative, social, and spiritual development.
