“Join us on a tour of select student residences at some of America’s top four-year colleges and universities—starting at Fairfield University.
42 LANGGUTH HALL | FAIRFIELD UNIVERSITY
Fairfield University, a Catholic institution in the Jesuit tradition, wanted a special home primarily for sophomores in its Ignatian Leadership Residential College. The $21.1 million 42 Langguth Hall houses 202 such students, plus offices and a 24-seat classroom.
Gilbane Building Company (CM) and design/engineering firm The S/L/A/M Collaborative provided 190 doubles, 12 singles, and three suites for resident directors, all clustered into 10-bed suites. There are fully accessible unisex bathrooms and showers on each floor.
The L-shaped, 62,400-sf structure, designed to complement the 1960s-era buildings on the Stags’ Connecticut campus, is framed by a glass tower. Each floor has two study lounges and communal kitchen.
THEORY WEST MIDTOWN | GEORGIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
Summit Contracting Group had a unique problem in its effort to complete the Theory West Midtown off-campus residences in the busy West Midtown neighborhood of Atlanta.
The problem: Super Bowl LIII. Ahead of the February 3 game, the city instituted a three-week moratorium on roadwork near the jobsite that slowed the work considerably. But once the hoopla was over, Summit fired up the afterburners and completed the 183-unit property for 525 Yellow Jackets before the first day of classes in August.
This was Summit’s sixth student housing project for owner/manager Peak Campus. Two five-story podium buildings designed by Niles Bolton Associates encompass 385,917 sf, including 10,500 sf of retail. A swimming pool, rooftop terrace, fitness center, study areas, package locker system, and bike storage round out the amenities list.”
