GOFFSTOWN – Work will begin this summer on a 43,000-square-foot residence hall, which will be ready for occupancy for the fall 2014 semester. Built near the Bertrand and Brady Halls, the three-story residence will have 150 beds in single, double and triple rooms.

The new residence hall will be an innovative living-learning community that extends the college's efforts to integrate academic and residential life, according to Joseph Horton '77, vice president for student affairs.

Plans include common areas with room for recreational activity and rooms for group and individual study. There will be presentation/classroom space on the first floor, where faculty members will be invited for presentations, classes, and seminars.

"By integrating the living and academic aspects of students' lives, we can better establish a foundation for lifelong learning," Horton said.

Plans under consideration also include linking sections of the residence hall to students' interests. Residential learning communities are based on themes such as multicultural awareness, wellness, and community service, and they change from year to year.

The residence is designed by Lavallee Brensinger Architects in Manchester. The design allows for divisions to be made by gender on separate wings or floors.
