Project Challenges and Outcomes
Based on increased enrollment and the University’s need to provide housing for incoming freshman, the determination was made to add another new residence hall to the East Halls Phase 1 Project. Martin Hall is seven stories and approximately 119,000 SF. The 415 bed residence hall is mainly double occupancy rooms with some Resident Assistant single rooms. As with the other halls in the East Halls quadrant, each floor will have both single user bathrooms that have a shower and toilet to allow for privacy and additional toilet only restrooms. The newly constructed hall will cost about $33.5 million and add a 16th building to this quadrant of campus. Martin Hall is a part of the East Halls Construction and Renovation project and should be completed in the Fall 2018.
