RESIDENCE LIFE & LEARNING CENTER
For the first time in 45 years, Heidelberg students have new “digs” to call home. The new facility is a 120-student residence hall and a 9,000 sq. ft. student commons area for all students.
Aimed primarily at sophomores, the hall includes five, two-story, 24-student “pods,” each with 12 students per floor in bedrooms surrounding an open, two-story living/gathering space. The living space includes a balcony, loft seating, kitchen, soft seating and study spaces to reinforce the academic mission. An important part of the project is the student commons area, which features a cafe pub, great room, study spaces, meeting and conference rooms, along with a patio for outdoor dining and social gatherings.
